Aaron Sorkin To Write And Direct Steve Jobs' Biopic

Sony Pictures has confirmed that Aaron Sorkin, one of this generation's most celebrated screenwriters (See: West Wing and Be The Last To See: The Social Network) will write and direct an upcoming film on the life of Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. The film will be an adaptation of Steve Jobs, the in-depth biography of the tech icon, written by Walter Isaacson and released what seemed like immediately following Jobs' death, late 2011.

"Steve Jobs' story is unique: he was one of the most revolutionary and influential men not just of our time but of all time. There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we're confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining, and polarizing."

- Amy Pascal
Co-Chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment

In addition to the Sorkin-directed, another Jobs movie is being actualized. It will star Ashton Kutcher and is scheduled to begin filming this month (May 2012).

Health: U.S. Launches Alzheimer Prevention/Treatment Plan

Yesterday morning (Tuesday, May 15, 2012), the United States government officially launched a national plan to address widespread Alzheimer's disease.

They will begin by funding an initial prevention study in higher-risk patients and tests on an insulin nasal spray that has shown significant promise in earlier, private studies.

Yup, nasal spray.

The trials, funded by grants of $16 million and $7.9 million respectively, are initial steps in the National Alzheimer's Plan, a sweeping effort to find an effective way to prevent or treat Alzheimer's by 2025 and improve the care of those already afflicted with the brain-wasting disease.
Funding for this ambitious causal campaign come from the $50 million pool the Obama administration has allocated for the National Alzheimer's Plan for fiscal 2012. An additional $100 million has been reserved for fiscal 2013. That pool includes $80 million for research, $4.2 million for public awareness, $4 million for provider education, $10.5 million in caregiver support, and $1.3 million to improve data collection. Designed to address every aspect of the Alzheimer's Disease, the plan includes development of new training for doctors, a public education campaign, including TV advertisements and a website -- -- to help families and advocates locate services and support. The plan called for in the National Alzheimer's Project Act signed by President Barack Obama last year, and drafted by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), reflects the input of 3,600 people or organizations. So, in short, this is a very big a ton of people. This could quite possibly, by 2025, change humanity as we know it.
