Why Alcohol Companies Are Betting on Non-Alcoholic ‘Booze’

It’s a Wednesday evening in Brooklyn, NY, and bars are dead. Tea-candle-dotted tables sit empty, waiting for a happy hour rush that isn’t. But tucked away on a side street, hours before its midnight closing time, a bar called Getaway hums with activity. Metal straws clink against ice and cocktail shakers rattle as patrons belly up to the marble bar. A woman fresh out of work reads and nurses a drink at a corner table. An early-thirties couple chats over a pre-dinner beverage, holding hands in the flattering dim lighting. This is New York City’s first permanent booze-free bar, and no one is drinking alcohol. Sam Thonis, 31, quit his career in video production to open Getaway in April. Thonis isn’t sober, but his brother quit drinking—and once he did, Thonis noticed it was a struggle to find places to hang out. At a bar, “you can sit there, chat with the bartender, chat with the person next to you. It’s a social place; the alcohol almost seems secondary,” Thonis says. “We are just offering something that I think people want: a social experience without the alcohol.” Thonis declined to share revenue numbers, but said the bar is consistently crowded enough that patrons can’t find a seat. The trend of millennials cutting back on alcohol has been well documented. “Millennials Are Sick of Drinking,” The Atlantic proclaimed in April, just a few days after Vox predicted that we’d all be hearing a lot ...

Conclusion: The integrated robotic system can place NBTU ablator at a desired target location in porcine brain and monitor the ablation in realtime via magnetic resonance thermal imaging (MRTI). Significance: Further optimization of this system could result in a clinically viable syste- for use in human trials for various diagnostic or therapeutic neurosurgical interventions.

Tumor immunosuppression is a limiting factor for successful cancer therapy. The lipid sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), which signals through 5 distinct G protein–coupled receptors (S1PR1–5), has emerged as an important regulator of carcinogenesis. However, the utility of targeting S1P in tumors is hindered by S1P’s impact on immune cell trafficking. Here, we report that ablation of the immune cell–specific receptor S1PR4, which plays a minor role in immune cell trafficking, delayed tumor development and improved therapy success in murine models of mammary and colitis-associated colorectal cancer throu...
