News Release, 24 February 1997
Roslin, Midlothian, UK... The
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

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.
