University earns $11.3M NIH grant to study biomolecular communication | Nebraska Today | University of Nebraska–Lincoln

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has earned an $11.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a research center focused on investigating cellular level miscommunications that contribute to complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes and chronic liver disease.

We discussed this internally amongst the CN staff... well, two of us did. We have a diverse group, comedians, IT people, a coach, couple scientists, and a dead Russian general.

I asked for a translation and ranchbabe delivered this:

As an IT guy, this is the same as figuring out which line of code is missing the appropriate piece of punctuation that closes the command and separates it from the next one.

Makes sense to me. You?

Nebraska can’t lose that many heartbreaking games again, right?

Nebraska Football: I Don't Just Love This Game, I need it.

In 3 short days I will be beer-in-hand in front of a television, grinning ear-to-ear. I’ve been waiting for this moment since beating UCLA 37-29 last December. But I’ve also been waiting for this moment since February 5th when I lived the worst day of my life.

I remember seeing this young woman’s tweets about losing her dog. Please read her story.

Ravens may go with all-rookie left side of offensive line | ProFootballTalk

The Baltimore Ravens didn’t exist at that point, but they may be going the all-rookie route this season. First-round pick Ronnie Stanley is definitely starting at left tackle and fourth-round pick Alex Lewis may be next to him at guard.

Hey, look at that! Alex Lewis might be starting!

That would be some pretty cool redemption right there!

But before I log off at the LJS, I wanted to share some memorable moments. They’re not in any order, and I’ll begin writing them really not knowing how many I’ll share, so there’s no specific number in mind, either.

EA's Peter Moore on NCAA Football: 'I know we'll be back' | Polygon

He didn't address how he thinks an NCAA Football series could return in the form that fans remember, with real-life rosters in which players are either fairly compensated or give permission for their use.

It won’t return in that form unless the current structure of NCAA football blows up. I’m not 100% sure why they can’t release a game that just randomizes numbers and names and gives us updated physics, our team’s current offense, and let’s it go at that.

Would not enough people buy it? I’m assuming that’s the thinking.

The Cornhusker Marching Band’s Route Has Changed

Then There’s This: Glass Animals

This is the video for a song called “Life Ifself” from a band called Glass Animals. The song is the first from the new album “How To Be A Human Being”.

That tall, lanky, blonde (kinda creepy) dude in the video is Pat Janssen, from our very own podcast Big Red Cobcast!

“How to Be a Human Being” is concept album in which each song is represented by a different character, and Janssen’s character was the face of “Life Itself”, which is a pretty funky cool song.

Apparently Pat’s character is named “Chuck Rogers”, and Chuck Rogers designed a web site where you can find cool things. Be sure to examine the great inventions!
