Why there are no work units at the moment

Dear malariacontrol.net community, Apologies for not responding sooner to the lack of work-units for malariacontrol.net. We had some technical problems with our attempts to fit improved models of malaria dynamics to field data. This meant that we had to close down the generation of new work units. We hoped that this would be a very short term problem, but over Christmas and the New Year, it was difficult to assess exactly what was going on. Unfortunately we are now faced with the challenge that for a variety of personal reasons the team members able to address these problems are currently not available, and we don’t have any spare funding that we can allocate to hiring anyone new. We are now almost at the 10th anniversary of malariacontrol.net and we are really hoping to keep this going, but it will probably be another month or two before we can get the system up again. Malariacontrol.net has now been going for ten years, and your contributions to this over the years have been really useful- (take a look at https://github.com/SwissTPH/openmalaria/wiki ). Instead of this apology, we would really like to be sending you all a big thank you!

I updated the project to the latest version of BOINC. As part of this, I also enabled SSL on the server. Please let me know if you run into any new issues. Thanks for your assistance!

New video: BSRC intern Kevin Luong

Kevin Luong joined Berkeley SETI Research Center as an intern in summer 2015. Kevin worked with David Anderson to revise the NTPCKR system to run on cloud computing servers. There are still a few kinks to sort out, but if it works, this should let us run our data base through NTPCKR in a few weeks instead of more then a year. Kevin transferred to UCLA in the fall, but is continuing to work with SETI to explore cloud computing for other projects.

We'll be launching an expanded undergraduate internship program soon. Details will be announced later this year.

New models and television program about U@H (in polish)

We have finished a bunch of models, which will be published shortly. However, still a lot more are waiting for investigation. In the case of ULXs we are working on the influence of more primordial matter composition on formation of these mysterious objects. The BHSPIN application concentrate on black holes spin (i.e., rotation), which influences the mass accretion processes (necessary for the detection of this latent objects), and emission of gravitational waves (a.k.a. propagation of space-time wrinkles). The last process is recently raises a unprecedented interest due to the rumours of its first observations. Predicted 100 years (precisely) gravitational waves have not been detected yet. Our results may play a significant role in understanding the observational results.

In polish public television appeared in the end of previous year a program about scientific computing considering also our project. Unfortunately it is available only in polish. You may found it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZIkjBXrcMM

I know everyone has been waiting. It's finally time.

We need some Mac users with ATI Radeon HD4000 series card to help the beta test before we can release that version. So if you've got an HD4XXX GPU, please join the beta.

I had compiled Mac OS version of ULX application.

Apologise if application will crash on your system (please report this to me) as I have no experience in Mac OS compiling.

If the application provide right results I will also add support for BHspin app.

Journal post from David BakerWe just published a paper in Nature that depended critically on all of your contributions! You can get the pdf for this paper on our website; you can also get pdfs of the many other papers we've published in the last couple of years that relied heavily on rosetta@home. Here is the link to the recent Nature paper: https://www.bakerlab.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Brunette_Nature_2015.pdf
