Razer revealed its Tomahawk Gaming Desktop at CES 2020, the company’s first foray into selling desktop PCs in addition to its line of laptops. Now, almost a year later, its PC with a modular, 10 liter eGPU-like design will finally ship — or at least be begin preorders today — with prices starting at $2,400. 

As ideas go, it’s pretty ingenious. It’s basically a pull-out circuit board with two PCI slots: one for a graphics card and one for an Intel NUC 9 Extreme Compute Element module which slides into a bay and has an Intel Core i9-9980HK processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD and a 2TB hard drive. It can accommodate a GPU up to the size and power requirements of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 (it uses a 750 watt power supply), which should cover most needs.

Discovery, home of Shark Week, enters the streaming wars with Discovery Plus

Discovery, home to HGTV, Food Network, and Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week, is entering the streaming space with Discovery Plus.

Details about the streamer will be revealed at a special event this afternoon, but CNBC reports that Discovery Plus will start at $4.99 with an ad-supported tier, along with a $6.99 ad-free option. The streaming service will launch in January 2021, but it’s unclear if that’s just in the United States or also internationally. CNBC also reports that Discovery is partnering with Verizon to give the telecom company’s 55 million customers a free year of ad-free Discovery Plus. It’s the same move that Disney did with Verizon when the company launched Disney Plus.

The company’s collection of notable brands is likely what executives are banking on. CEO David Zaslav spoke about the company’s approach at a recent conference, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, noting that “super fans” will want

The drug candidate is currently entering IND-enabling studies.

MDM2 is a key regulator of the tumor suppressor p53 and one of the most potent inhibitors of apoptosis discovered thus far. It has high expression in tumors and plays a key role in the occurrence and development of tumors. Binding to the MDM2 protein with high affinity, MDM2 inhibitor blocks the MDM2-p53 interactions and restore the tumor-suppressing activity of p53.1 Meanwhile, these MDM2 inhibitors present some challenges, including dose-limiting hematological
