FedEx is gearing up to deliver a whole mess of iPhone 5s today, and they are almost literally swimming in a sea of iPhone 5 boxes at their distribution center. I can only spot about three boxes that aren’t iPhones making their way through the processing belt, and it looks like one iPhone 5 fell off. I hope that one’s not yours.(via Look At All These iPhone 5s Flooding FedEx’s Distribution Center [Image] | Cult of Mac)
‘I have written a blasphemous book’, said Melville when his novel was first published in 1851, ‘and I feel as spotless as the lamb’. Deeply subversive, in almost every way imaginable, Moby-Dick is a virtual, alternative bible – and as such, ripe for reinterpretation in this new world of new media. Out of Dominion was born its bastard child – or perhaps its immaculate conception – the Moby-Dick Big Read: an online version of Melville’s magisterial tome: each of its 135 chapters read out aloud, by a mixture of the celebrated and the unknown, to be broadcast online in a sequence of 135 downloads, publicly and freely accessible.
Collapsing glomerulopathy is an aggressive morphologic variant of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis which typically presents with nephrotic syndrome and rapidly progressive renal failure. Most cases of collapsing glomerulopathy are associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection. We present a rare case of collapsing glomerulopathy associated with acute cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in an immunocompetent host with improvement in renal function after the treatment of CMV with ganciclovir. CMV may be an under-recognized cause of collapsing glomerulopathy which may respond to antiviral treatment.
