This Week I Learned -

* New T-SQL language features are available in memory-optimized tables and natively compiled stored procedures in premium tiers of Azure SQL Database.

* Viruses can kill bacteria that antibiotics cannot. Bacteria-infecting viruses, known as bacteriophages, were discovered a century ago. They make a living by slipping inside their microbial hosts and hijacking their biochemistry to make many new copies of themselves. Many species of bacteriophages then burst out of their host, killing it in the process. Once antibiotics came to light, however, phage therapy virtually disappeared from most countries. Phage therapy still remained popular in the Soviet Union. Stalin’s soldiers had their wounds treated with viruses during World War II. Phage therapy might work where antibiotics failed. Phage therapy is not approved for regular use by the Food and Drug Administration - STAT (in medical parlance, “stat” means important and urgent)

Finally an expression of comfort.
