News Release, 24 February 1997

Roslin, Midlothian, UK... The Roslin Institute and PPL Therapeutics have published in Nature the successful breeding of cloned sheep through nuclear transfer from differentiated foetal and adult cells. This is a major scientific breakthrough as it is the first time that any mammal has been derived from foetal or adult cells. The research also confirmed the ability of nuclear transfer to work with cells from embryos. Benefits of the technology could include improvements in conventional animal breeding as well as in the biopharmaceutical industry.

( CNN ) -- Americans responded unfavorably to news this week that Scottish scientists had successfully cloned a sheep from a cell taken from ordinary tissue.

March 2, 1997, Questions Asking for Answers (Jinlong Lin)

(1) Is cloning processes against Von Neumann's will?
(2) Can we use genetic algorithms in process controls?
(3) Are you willing to buy evolving processes and evolution scheduling?



This is a new scheduler, called Evolution Scheduler, based on Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Programming. It lives with original Linux priority scheduler. This means you don't have to reboot to change the scheduling policy. You may simply use the manager program esep to switch between them at any time, and esep itself is an all-in-one for scheduling status, commands, and administration. When you switch back to Linux priority scheduler, it's the same as your usual one, except doing some additional "if(esd.rq_policy==ES_SCHED_ES)" instructions. We didn't intend to remove the original priority scheduler; instead, at least, esep provides you with another choice to use a more intelligent scheduler, which carries out natural competition in an easy and effective way.
