JON AUER: All you can really hope to do in life it to keep evolving, growing. I"m not religious at all let me be clear about that but I kind of like sport wristbands the serenity prayer....y"know the bits about changing what you can letting go of what you can"t and the wisdom to know the difference. Seems like a good philosophy even in a digital age. If you choose to assemble your own theatrical troupe you will of course need a place to rehearse the play. If you have secured a location that will let you perform the show, they may also let you rehearse there. If not, there is nothing wrong with a good old basement or garage. My local group spent years rehearsing in basements. KEN STRINGFELLOW: Not really. The album was really sculpted and worked over. There was an intense rehearsal period, an intense recording period, an intense editing period, an intense mixing period. I feel like we labored over it a lot, but because we had a deadline, we didn"t over do it...by any means. Killer Mike will open all headlining concerts.

Chinese scientists have developed a prototype instrument to quickly determine the level of antibiotic resistance in cells infecting a patient, thereby allowing more precise administration of the drugs.

The device was unveiled recently by the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which said it was the first of its kind in the world.

It can determine the level of resistance in sample cells within three hours without the need to grow more cells in a lab. Existing methods typically take 24 to 48 hours, said Ma Bo, a research fellow at the institute.

Widespread antimicrobial resistance and the associated rise of superbugs is a major public health threat. One leading cause is the misuse or overuse of antibiotics due to incorrect assessments of how much is needed.

"Traditionally, doctors may use high doses of antibiotics to save a patient"s life … because they cannot wait long for the results," Ma said. "With the help of this new instrument, doctors will be advised how much antibiotic to use for different patients, and will avoid misuse."

The institute"s announcement followed the World Health Organization"s World Antibiotic Awareness Week, which ran from Nov 12 to 18. The WHO"s annual campaign aims to increase global awareness of antibiotic resistance and to encourage best practices among the public, healthcare workers and policymakers to avoid the further emergence and spread of resistant microbes.

According to the Qingdao institute, the instrument has been validated experimentally using clinical samples from urology departments at domestic hospitals.

Zhou Hongwei, head of the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University, is excited about the new device.

"Novel methods and instruments for rapid antimicrobial resistance tests are urgently needed in clinical microbiology labs, and inventions like this can potentially lead to a paradigm shift in microbial diagnosis."

Xiao Yonghong, deputy director of the State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases at Zhejiang University, said it is a step toward responsible and personalized use of antibiotics.

"I hope researchers will accelerate its clinical validation," Xiao said. "But translating scientific discoveries to the bedside can require significant investments and additional efforts."
