David Brooks: Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Bloomberg ‘Shouldn’t Be the Face’ of Gun Control


Friday on PBS’s “NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks advised against making former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel as the face of gun control. According to Brooks, having those as the spokesperson distracts from the issue. Instead, he said the rhetoric should come from gun owners. “Too often, the people who have been the spokesperson for gun control have been Michael Bloomberg and, frankly, Jimmy Kimmel,” he said “And I like Michael Bloomberg. I like Jimmy Kimmel’s show. But they shouldn’t be the face because everybody’s cultural awarenesses get up when it’s a New York mayor or a Hollywood star. And it has to come from people who own guns in this country.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Billy Crystal Rips Sean Spicer: Even Mel Gibson Thinks He’s an ‘A**hole’


Saturday on HBO’s “Real Time,” Billy Crystal ripped former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, saying it “pissed” him off “big time” to see people taking pictures with the “half man, half Jack Russell Terrier” in the green room at the Emmys. “[Spicer] was the liar, was the voice for this crap,” Crystal told host Bill Maher. Crystal quoted Spicer saying Hitler did not use chemical weapons on his own people, joking that even Mel Gibson thinks Spicer is an “asshole.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Researchers Develop ‘Smart’ Bandage That Can Speed Healing


Researchers from Harvard, MIT, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are developing a smart bandage that can release medication and speed the healing process. These “intelligent bandages” are made from cotton coated with an electrically conductive substance, then further surrounded by a gel capable of storing medications like antibiotics or painkillers. The individual fibers are controlled by a device no larger than a postage stamp affixed to the bandage, receiving signals from your mobile device. The bandage heals wounds three times as fast as normal. Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Nebraska Ali Tamayol elaborated in a press release: This is the first bandage that is capable of dose-dependent drug release. You can release multiple drugs with different release profiles. That’s a big advantage in comparison with other systems. What we did here was come up with a strategy for building a bandage from the bottom up. Tamayol said that this technology “can be applied to many different areas of biomedical engineering and medicine,” which is good news for people suffering from long term or chronic wounds. Right now, there are an estimated 25 million Americans in need of just such a solution. Perhaps even more notably, such treatment could be invaluable
