World-first tooth-regrowing drug will be given to humans in September | New Atlas

“The world's first human trial of a drug that can regenerate teeth will begin in a few months, less than a year on from news of its success in animals. This paves the way for the medicine to be commercially available as early as 2030. … ‘We want to do something to help those who are suffering from tooth loss or absence,’ said lead researcher Katsu Takahashi, head of dentistry and oral surgery at Kitano Hospital. ‘While there has been no treatment to date providing a permanent cure, we feel that people's expectations for tooth growth are high.’”

Are stars vanishing into their own black holes? A bizarre binary system says 'yes' |

“Scientists have discovered strong evidence that some massive stars end their existence with a whimper, not a bang, and sink into a black hole of their own making without the light and fury of a supernova. … Researchers have occasionally noticed occurrences of failed supernovas — stars that begin to brighten as though they are about to explode but which then falter and die away. … Could these failed supernovas and vanishing stars be evidence for stars being almost entirely pulled into the black hole they form before they get a chance to explode? Well, maybe, some scientists believe.’”

How researchers cracked an 11-year-old password to a $3 million crypto wallet | Wired

“Joe Grand is a famed hardware hacker who in 2022 helped another crypto wallet owner recover access to $2 million in cryptocurrency he thought he’d lost forever after forgetting the PIN to his Trezor wallet. Since then, dozens of people have contacted Grand to help them recover their treasure. Grand, known by the hacker handle ‘Kingpin’ ... now consults with companies that build complex digital systems to help them understand how hardware hackers like him might subvert their systems.

Stop the fireworks! Here’s how to turn off webcam video reactions on Mac | Cult of Mac

“How do you turn off the webcam video reactions on your Mac in macOS Sonoma? This feature, which puts full-screen animated effects on your video calls, made a good demo when it was introduced. But after it launched, it confused many people who trigger it accidentally in serious situations. It works in FaceTime video calls and various other video conferencing software. However, the ‘Off’ button isn’t where you might expect. It’s not hiding in Zoom, Skype or Google Meet at all — it’s in the Mac’s menu bar.”

Founder’s Corner: The struggle is real — and it’s worth it

I've been a founder for 15 years and an investor for 10. There’s some overlap between the two roles. But there’s one major difference I overlooked early in my investing journey. Here’s what I mean (with a real-life example): Being a founder comes with uncertainty. I knew that. But at least I was in control of the daily progress. I didn't realize that being an investor comes with just as much uncertainty. But none of the control. Here's how I think about investing in companies: I care more about the founder than the product.
