Longevity: it's truly amazing Deep Purple are still on stage in full force 45 years later at the same place where Smoke on Water was written and recorded

Photos from the concert of Deep Purple, Montreux, 2016-07-16. A great example of vitality and longevity: it's truly amazing Deep Purple are still on stage in full force 45 years later at the same place where Smoke on Water was written and recorded (1971 in Montreux).

Smoke On The Water lyrics - Deep Purple:

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, a fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

App allows anybody to snap a photo of a passerby and discover their real name — with 70% reliability

From MarketWatch:

250 million video surveillance cameras have been installed throughout the world, and chances are you’ve been seen by several of them today. We leave our “faceprints” everywhere we go.

FindFace app allows anybody to snap a photo of a passerby and discover their real name — with 70% reliability. What’s particularly unsettling are the use cases the app creators advocate: identifying strangers to send them dating requests, helping government security agencies to determine the identities of dissenters, and allowing retailers to bombard you with advertisements based on what you look at in stores.

FDA warns that fluoroquinolone antibiotics can cause damage to muscles and nerves

The FDA updated boxed warning will inform patients that the serious side effects of the drugs generally outweigh the benefits for patients with sinusitis, bronchitis and uncomplicated urinary tract infections - if patients have other treatment options. However, why would you prescribe these antibiotics if there are other treatment options? The practical implication of this recommendation is somewhat unclear.

The side effects can involve damage to tendons, muscles, joints, nerves and the central nervous system (CNS). There was an association between fluoroquinolone antibiotic use and disabling peripheral neuropathy in a 2013 study.

Symptoms reported by patients included weakness, numbness, pain, discomfort, burning and tingling. There is also reported risk of cardiovascular disease and tendon rupture.
