Global Data Challenge Underway to Automate Crop Type Monitoring in South Africa using Satellite Data & Machine Learning

Participants of the Radiant Earth Spot the Crop Data Challenge are building models to classify crop types based on time-series satellite imagery.

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 / — The United States based nonprofit Radiant Earth Foundation and the Western Cape Department of Agriculture in South Africa are inviting the world’s data scientists to join the Radiant Earth Spot the Crop Data Challenge. This open competition is currently running until September 5.

Participants are building machine learning models to identify crop type classes in the Western Cape province of South Africa using training data generated by Radiant Earth, based on ground reference data collected and provided by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture. Hosted on the Zindi platform, the data science competition consists of two parallel tracks: In track 1, participants are using the time-series of Sentinel-2 multi-spectral data as input to their model. In track 2, both Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-1 radar data are being used as input. The participation awards are USD 4,000 USD, USD 2,800, and USD 2,000 for each track’s first, second, and third prizes.

Combining Earth observation (EO) satellite data and machine learning technologies are vital for developing agricultural monitoring tools to determine and anticipate change trajectories. On the one hand, EO technologies help us understand the planet’s different elements and monitor natural and anthropogenic changes. On the other hand, machine learning allows us to run predictive analyses based on the data at scale. Examples that demonstrate the power of the technologies include assessing drought risks and mapping optimal soil conditions for certain crops, among other applications. With the flux of high-quality open satellite data, we can build an agricultural monitoring system that is automated at a fraction of the cost and time that a traditional agricultural census would take.

An automated agricultural monitoring system is essential for the Western Cape, which experienced the frightening ‘Day Zero’ water crisis in 2018, especially in light of reports that it could experience another water crisis this century. Agriculture is one of the Western Cape’s economic backbones and a lead agricultural exporter of South Africa. When drought strikes, from the wine industry to its fruit and livestock farming, it affects people locally and regionally. The winning results of this data competition can demonstrate the potential of Earth observation data and machine learning applications to develop an operational agricultural monitoring system, particularly for regions without dependable monitoring systems in place. It can also be used to develop applications that allow for more frequent updates to monitor agricultural change trajectories in the Western province.

The competition and data preparation are made possible with support by the convening sponsor, GIZ FAIR Forward, which is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Cash prizes that will be awarded to the top winners are made possible through the additional support from platinum sponsor Computer Vision for Global Challenges and gold sponsor Descartes Labs.

Radiant Earth will host a webinar on August 5, 2021, at 9 AM EST. Experts will provide technical tutorials and examples for those interested in participating in the data challenge. To attend the webinar, participants can register here:

Robert Bradley receives $250,000 from Washington Research Foundation to develop small molecules to boost immunotherapies

Proprietary technology being created through Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center collaboration

Early data show that combining our technology with checkpoint inhibitors should safely and effectively target a whole host of cancers. It isn’t limited to a single target.”

— Robert Bradley, Ph.D.

SEATTLE, WA, USA, August 3, 2021 / — Robert Bradley, Ph.D., has been awarded a $250,000 technology commercialization grant to develop small molecules that have the potential to improve immunotherapies for a broad range of cancers. This is the largest award to date from a $750,000 grant Washington Research Foundation (WRF) gave to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) in February to accelerate life sciences research with significant potential for public benefit. Bradley and his team are collaborating with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for this project.

In recent years, a cancer immunotherapy known as immune checkpoint blockade has shown remarkable success in treating previously intractable cancers. Immune checkpoint inhibitors work by removing the normal checks and balances on T cells that naturally exist to prevent an immune response from going into overdrive and destroying healthy cells. Removing these so-called checkpoint inhibitors enables T cells to more vigorously attack tumors. However, immune checkpoint therapies do not always work for patients, and one reason is thought to be the lack of “neoantigens” on tumor cells, which mark the cells as a target for the immune system.

Bradley, the McIlwain Family Endowed Chair in Data Science and a professor in Fred Hutch’s Public Health Sciences and Basic Sciences Divisions, has demonstrated a novel approach to force tumor cells to produce more neoantigens and therefore give a needed boost to immune checkpoint therapy. He showed that neoantigens can be induced by altering ribonucleic acid (RNA) splicing within cancer cells, and that the production of these neoantigens can make immune checkpoint blockade more effective. Since neoantigens are preferentially produced in cancer cells by the small molecules that Bradley is developing, healthy cells remain largely unaffected by the enhanced activation of T cells due to immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

“Immune checkpoint blockade essentially takes the brakes off the immune system and is very effective for some patients,” said Bradley. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for most because the treatment can become so effective that it also attacks healthy cells and causes intolerable side effects. Early data show that combining our technology with checkpoint inhibitors should safely and effectively target a whole host of cancers. It isn’t limited to a single target.”

The promise shown by Bradley’s work for a novel, safe and effective therapy to improve outcomes for patients with untreatable or difficult-to-treat cancers was key to WRF’s support of the project, said Meher Antia, Ph.D., WRF’s director of grant programs.

WRF’s funding will enable Bradley and his colleagues to further develop proprietary small molecules and demonstrate that their approach is safe and effective as they progress their research toward commercialization.

“We are confident that we will make significant progress in the next year. With that in mind, we are looking to establish commercial partnerships that will enable our technology to get to patients as soon as possible,” said Bradley.

About Washington Research Foundation:

Washington Research Foundation (WRF) supports research and scholarship in Washington state, with a focus on life sciences and enabling technologies.

WRF was founded in 1981 to assist universities and other nonprofit research institutions in Washington with the commercialization and licensing of their technologies.

St. George, Utah Prime IV Members See Consistent Results with Their Health

Prime IV Hydration & Wellness - St. George, Utah

Prime IV Hydration & Wellness – St. George, Utah

Consistency is key when it comes to taking care of your health and improving your life–IV hydration therapy can make a difference.

We have found that more and more of our members enjoy consistently adding an IV drip to their monthly routine. The sum of these small consistent actions over time yields amazing results.”

— Heidi Neville, owner of Prime IV St George

ST. GEORGE, UTAH, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 / — Consistency is key when it comes to taking care of your health and improving your life. IV therapy is becoming one of the more popular ways that people are choosing to IMPROVE. IV therapy has shown to be beneficial for many conditions. Prime IV St. George offers monthly memberships that allow you to choose from a variety of amazing drips, discounts, and even more incentives to make your health a priority.

“Anyone who is serious about their health will tell you of the steps they consistently take to remain fit,” said Heidi Neville, owner. “We have found that more and more of our members enjoy consistently adding an IV drip to their monthly routine. The sum of these small consistent actions over time can yield amazing results.”

One of our faithful members, Charlie, said the following in his five-star review, “I love getting my IV twice a month. Keeps my 73-year-old body energized.”

Many people do not realize that vitamin deficiencies may be at the root of all their health problems. Vitamin deficiencies are associated with:

– Fatigue
– Dizziness
– Muscle weakness
– Immune problems
– Chronic pain
– Decreased mood

According to many studies, the vast majority (92%) of Americans are deficient in at least one vitamin. However, most don’t realize that vitamin deficiencies cannot be fixed overnight. Oral supplements can take months or years to correct these levels. IV hydration, while not an immediate fix, allows your body to absorb 100% of the nutrients, rather than the fraction that you receive from supplements.

That’s why we offer a variety of different members levels to accommodate these needs. Consistent IV hydration can help your nutrient levels to stabilize over time and remain in the optimal range.

“One IV cannot adequately correct years of vitamin deficiency,” said Neville. “Our members find that regular attention makes a significant difference.”

If you’re new to Prime IV therapy, here are the benefits of IV treatments:

• Intravenously is the most effective way to absorb vitamins and nutrients.
• You feel better immediately after the session – an effect that is enhanced with consistent treatments. You will likely feel clear-minded, energized, and revitalized.
• It’s quick! You can do it on your lunch break or between meetings for a little boost.
• It can be used as part of a treatment plan for many chronic conditions like fatigue, pain, depression, migraines, and others.
• It’s a powerful immune booster – no winter sickness around here thanks!
• It’s deeply hydrating, working at a cellular level.
• It’s customizable based on your symptoms.
• It actually WORKS.

Transform Your Health and Vitality with the Myers Cocktail

One of our most popular vitamin infusions—and the one that started it all—is the Myers Cocktail.

Dr. Myers believed in the powerful benefits of nutritional therapy and pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy to treat the body without relying on pharmaceuticals.”

— Heidi Neville, owner of Prime IV Lehi

LEHI, UTAH, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 / — There are many different options available to you when you visit Prime IV Hydration & Wellness, depending on your symptoms and goal. One of our most popular vitamin infusions—and the one that started it all—is the Myers Cocktail. Whether you’re suffering from seasonal allergies, fatigue, or a chronic condition like fibromyalgia, the Myers Cocktail has been created to help you feel more alive and vital.

If you’re new to IV therapy and are yet to come across the Myers Cocktail, this news is for you. We’re going to cover everything you need to know about the Myers Cocktail: its benefits, history, science, and uses. So without further ado, let’s get started.

What is the Myers Cocktail?

Before we get into the history of the Myers Cocktail, let’s first cover exactly what it is. As outlined in a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, the Myers Cocktail includes:

– Magnesium
– Calcium gluconate
– B vitamins, including Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12
– Vitamin C

Where did the Myers Cocktail come from?

The Myers Cocktail was created by and named after the late Dr. John Myers, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Myers created a formula of vitamins and minerals to be administered intravenously, to help with a wide range of clinical conditions. This formula became commonly known as the Myers Cocktail.

Dr. Myers believed in the powerful benefits of nutritional therapy and pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy to treat the body without relying on pharmaceuticals. This holistic approach to healthcare is more common nowadays but was innovative in the 1960s.

Despite this, Dr. Myers’ practice increased in popularity, with some patients receiving IV therapy twice weekly for years, with one study published in 2002 claiming that many of Dr. Myers' patients received continual therapy for 25 years or more. In fact, over an 11-year period, an estimated 15,000 IV treatments were administered to approximately 1,000 different patients, all suffering from acute or chronic health conditions.

What conditions can be treated with the Myers Cocktail?
As outlined in the study above, Dr. Myers treated a wide variety of conditions with the Myers Cocktail. These included:

– Fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome)
– Acute migraines
– Asthma
– Fibromyalgia
– Acute muscle spasm
– Upper respiratory tract infections
– Chronic sinusitis 
– Seasonal allergies

And these conditions, less commonly:

Autoimmune Diseases
– Hyperthyroidism
– Painful menstrual periods
– Lyme Disease
– Hives

Aside from treating patients with these conditions, Dr. Myers also administered the vitamin and mineral formula to healthy patients who were looking to boost their overall wellbeing.

Thanks to the combination of vitamins and minerals in the Myers Cocktail, detoxifying effects can be seen. With the addition of Glutathione, those detoxifying effects may be enhanced.

At Prime IV Hydration & Wellness, the Myers Cocktail continues to be the best-selling IV infusion. Many of our customers use it to treat the conditions listed, whilst others just want to give their immune system a little boost, to prevent and shorten the duration of sickness, increase their energy levels, and to revive their vitality.

How does the Myers Cocktail work?

IV therapy involves pumping your body with vitamins and fluids to efficiently replenish and deeply hydrate your body at a cellular level. When you receive the Myers Cocktail IV infusion, you are increasing your blood concentration of the vitamins and minerals it includes.

You may be wondering why you can’t just take this as a supplement, but it has been shown in research that taking vitamins and minerals intravenously increases blood concentrations fifty times more than when taking a supplement.

When you increase your blood concentration of certain vitamins and minerals, you may be replenishing any deficiencies that may be present, contributing to the symptoms you’re experiencing. Nutrient deficiencies contribute to, if not entirely cause,  several health conditions and symptoms.

For example, studies have shown that magnesium and B12 deficiencies can worsen, or manifest as, fibromyalgia symptoms. This is due to the role of these vitamins in nerve health and transmission.

Even if you’re not experiencing any specific symptoms, nutrient deficiencies impact your energy levels, muscle strength, respiratory system, appetite, digestion, and more. This may be barely noticeable or debilitating—but can be treated easily with an IV infusion like Myers Cocktail.

What does the research say about Myers Cocktail?
A placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind study (the gold standard of research!) treated fibromyalgia patients with the Myers Cocktail versus a placebo. The group treated with the Myers Cocktail noted significant improvements in their symptoms, specifically improved tender points, pain, depression, and quality of life, following eight weeks of treatment. 

Another study looked at the effects of adding magnesium to vitamin C infusions, as per the Myers Cocktail. The researchers found that doing so, enhanced the anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects of vitamin C. This has profound implications.

A study reported benefits from treating seasonal allergic rhinitis with the Myers Cocktail and reducing the frequency and intensity of asthma attacks. This was supported in a study that looked at the effects of intravenous magnesium, a key component of the Myers Cocktail, for asthma, found that it reduced hospitalizations by 90 percent.

Finally, a study found that within minutes of receiving the Myers Cocktail IV, symptoms relating to upper respiratory infections drastically decrease. This is because the IV is supplying the body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight pathogens, boost immune function, and prevent sickness.

The Myers Cocktail can transform your health and wellbeing within minutes. The well-established basis of research that supports the use of the Myers Cocktail gives an insight into how powerful this holistic treatment can be. Dr. Myers himself was able to rid many thousands of individuals of their health conditions through intravenous nutritional therapy, and now it is available for you.

Why wait another day suffering from a condition impacting your wellness and vitality? Choose to take charge of your health the natural way, with the Myers Cocktail. Contact Prime IV Hydration & Wellness to book your infusion now!

The new Coral Sample Registry solves critical issues for the coral restoration and conservation community

Together we have developed a powerful tool that will shape the near future of coral restoration science”

— Amelia Moura, CRF™ Science Program Manager

TAVERNIER, FLORIDA, USA, August 3, 2021 / — – Coral Restoration Foundation™ (CRF™) has published the world’s first database to enable integration of coral restoration and research data sets, solving several critical issues for restoration managers, practitioners, and researchers.

– The novel Coral Sample Registry was developed in collaboration with academics, management agencies, and restoration practitioners in the South Florida area.

– The registry is open-source and freely available to users, designed to be suitable for all coral species in all geographic regions.

In the last decade, the field of coral reef restoration has generated a huge proliferation of data around corals used in reef restoration and research. This information covers the source of coral samples, their genetics, and the performance of these diverse species and genotypes in research and restoration practice. Until now, these data sets have been siloed, giving managers, practitioners, and researchers limited ability to cross-mine this information. But Coral Restoration Foundation™ has now launched a new open-source Coral Sample Registry that enables researchers, managers, and restoration practitioners to access all these data.

Resource managers track the multitude of permits, species, restoration locations, and performance across multiple stakeholders while researchers generate large data sets and data pipelines detailing the genetic, genomic, and phenotypic variants of corals. Restoration practitioners, in turn, maintain records on fragment collection, genet performance, outplanting location, and survivorship. While each individual data set is important, collectively they can provide far deeper insights and better guide coral restoration efforts.

Born out of a critical conversation at the Reef Futures symposium in 2018, the Coral Sample Registry offers a key for agencies to contribute to and access the full picture of corals being used in reef restoration and research. It is appropriate for all species, can be used for tracking both sexual and asexual harvests, and establishes a link between collection information for any subsequent sample and all phenotypic data collected. The Registry solves several problems: it avoids naming confusion within and between stakeholder groups and it removes the burden of sorting through reported information making it easier to understand which groups are working with which species and genotypes.

The Coral Sample Registry assigns a unique “Accession Number” to each sample, corresponding to a specific collection event of coral tissue, whether for research, archiving, or restoration purposes. It essentially unlocks the diversity of information related to that sample’s provenance and characteristics across any and all data structures that include the accession number field. The registry has been detailed in the peer-reviewed paper, “Integrating Coral Restoration Data With a Novel Coral Sample Registry”, published in the scientific journal Frontiers in Marine Science.

Amelia Moura, Coral Restoration Foundation™ Science Program Manager, led the development of the Registry. She says, “Not only does the Coral Sample Registry set the baseline for the minimum standard collection information required to treat a coral as an individual sample, but it also gives us an accurate picture of how many fragments have been harvested or created for use in restoration efforts. The goal is that this resource will be adopted by researchers, restoration practitioners, and managers to efficiently track coral samples through all data structures and unlock of a broader array of insights, saving all of us time and resources at this critical juncture for our planet’s coral reefs. We are grateful to all the authors for their contributions; together we have developed a powerful tool that will shape the near future of coral restoration science.”

The Coral Sample Registry was developed by Coral Restoration Foundation™ in collaboration with the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, SECORE International, and the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service.

GIDEON API R wrapper package (in beta) brings all the benefits of R to epidemiological research. Access GIDEON infectious diseases database with minimal coding.

We want researchers to focus on what they do best – using epidemiology to help the world understand and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks”

— Uri Blackman

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 / — GIDEON Informatics, the Global Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology Online Network, announced their new GIDEON API R wrapper package in beta. GIDEON R offers researchers the power to analyze data from the GIDEON infectious diseases database without programming REST API queries.

GIDEON is one of the most well-known references for infectious diseases and their global occurrences since the 1900s. The database is updated daily with information on 25,000+ ongoing and historical infectious disease outbreaks, granular disease-specific maps, detailed tracking of zoonotic diseases across countries, and insights on over 360 infectious diseases, 2000+ pathogens, and 30,000 drugs and vaccines. Also featured are 23,600 country-specific notes with over three million words of text that outline the status of specific infections within each country.

“We want researchers to focus on what they do best – using epidemiology to help the world understand and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks,” says Uri Blackman, CEO at GIDEON Informatics. “In just the past three years, almost 200 scientific studies that used GIDEON data were published. Now with GIDEON R, many more researchers can access valuable infectious disease data with minimal coding.”

Researchers who already tried the beta version of the GIDEON R package found it extremely efficient.

“I am experimenting with the new R wrapper and I just love it,” said Dr. Nermin Ghith, a Post-doctoral researcher at the Technical University of Denmark.

The COVID-19 pandemic put a huge spotlight on the importance of analyzing data on infectious disease outbreaks in real-time. With the popularity and ease of global travel, a pathogen can spread to all corners of the globe in just a weekend. Infectious disease specialists, public health officials, and frontline clinicians are under greater pressure to increase vigilance for emerging infectious diseases. GIDEON R empowers faster access to the historical and current outbreak and infectious disease data.

The GIDEON R package brings simplicity, convenience, flexibility, and reproducibility to the world of epidemiological research. Research teams can get straight to the analytics using the GIDEON database. There is no need for advanced programming skills or wasted time testing and sequencing API calls, validating parameters, and fixing other issues before they start.

Using GIDEON R, researchers can create scripts and simulate all data analysis steps. This way, scientists can perform different runs without worrying about changes to the process. Additionally, using R, researchers can create any type of graph or chart, simple or advanced. GIDEON R also facilitates global collaboration. It is compatible with any platform – it does not matter if you use Windows, Mac, or another system.

R is a free, open-source programming language that is rapidly gaining popularity in the field of research. It is already a regular fixture in standard data analytics university programs. Public Health agencies and epidemiological researchers are increasingly using R for their studies and reports.

The GIDEON R package is available today for researchers, infectious disease specialists, public health officials, medical librarians, and more.

Cleveland's Own BrainDagger Films Wins Big This Year on the Film Festival Circuit

Movie Poster

Red Carpet

BrainDagger Films logo

Including Best Documentary Short: Cannes World Film Festival, Best Series/ TV Pilot: Indie Short Fest L.A., Best Documentary Short: Best Shorts Film Fest L.A.

As Organism is a blazingly fast documentary that takes its queues from the original Bill Nye the Science Guy show from the 90s and throws in a wallop of caffeine.”

— Callum Reds/

CLEVELAND, OH, USA, August 3, 2021 / — Moe and Kathryn Taylor's Cleveland based film studio, BrainDagger Films has done it again with the mind-blowing documentary "As Organism". That's a weird name for a movie people told them, but after watching the film it makes complete and utter sense. You may never be the same after viewing this master class in editing of philosophy and spooky science. Here's the tagline:

Join Rachel Sellers and Alan Watts for a journey in scale from the subatomic world to the edge of the cosmos as they open your eyes to the possibilities of the universe as a single organism. Discover the range of patterns that design the world around us and the mathematical properties inherent in the building blocks of everything we know.

We must learn how to understand our perceived enemies point of view and figure out how to get along with each other or there's little hope for society and civilization as we know it. We are in the midst of a global societal collapse and it is important to show films like this so we can possibly slow it down and maybe even stop it before its too late. STOP HATING PEOPLE BEFORE YOU MEET THEM. Please?

This is episode one of the couple's new series, BrainDagger Films Presents: Knowledge is Good. This is a ten part series with the insane goal of teaching people how to get along and understand others through weird (important) science and philosophy. Moe and Kathryn have a lofty goal of bringing the world back from the brink so they figured "What the heck? Might as well give it a shot, its better than doing nothing right?" If you think's its a grandiose claim, just watch it. Its only 32 minutes. The link is right here.

Bold? The movie actually lives up to the hype as these reviews show:

Excerpts from these reviews:

“If you think a science documentary has to be super boring, think again… this short film is absolute proof of that.”

“If you want a great masterclass of how to edit for interest, As Organism would work wonderfully as a teaching tool but make no mistake, you just may find yourself lost in the film. I'm pretty confident that was the plan all along.”

“It's loud, and it's fun, and it also teaches you something.”

“The style is 100% catchy: thumbs up and four stars.”

“There is more non-human about you than what is actually human”

“This lower-budget short film has outdone plenty of the big guy productions I've seen from a technical standpoint.”

“As for the film in its entirety? Excellent. Very well done.”

“It has no problem keeping you hooked no matter what you believe.”

“As it was stated in the film, "As Organism" could lead to an overload of the mind – but as long as you keep a little of what you've seen in the back of your head, your perception of things may forever be altered.”

“There's nothing basic about this short film – at all.”

“We are barraged with one video image after the other. It’s vibrant, colorful, and relentless.”

“Moe Taylor’s As Organism is a documentary short, shot in a visually over-stimulating MTV style that is hard to pull off and so easy to fail. In Taylor’s case, he found the secret, and it works.”

“There are so many projects out there and that most of them are just retreads of stories, but apparently new takes on concepts are still out there to be found, and that is nice to know.”

Episode two is titled "A Message for Classification Upgrade". They are currently seeking funding for this project. Here's the synopsis:

The human race is at a crossroads where the designator Homo Sapiens is no longer a valid classification. We no longer evolve to adapt to our surroundings, we are now at the point where we adapt our surroundings to serve ourselves. In this episode Rachel and Alan explore mankind's symbiosis with the Earth and technology and discuss the fact that we are now in control of our own evolution. Some of the problems we will have to deal with in the upcoming 30 years are the effects of drastically longer lifespans, finding meaning in a post-scarcity society and harnessing the energy to make it possible while avoiding a highly probable self-destruction. We will also discuss the Kardashev scale and its ramifications for a spacefaring society. Whether we become a species of digital uploads, cyborgs, symbiotes with the solar system or extinct is all up for grabs in this episode.
