From the Workbench:  Another Workshop-Grade Anti-Material Sniper Rifle.
This one, under development, is said to be chambered in 14.5mm, like a KPV heavy machine-gun  or a PTRD-41, another descendant of the Soviet arms-production heyday. (The weapon is built around a Soviet cartridge designed in the 1930s, and still produced and widely available on battlefields today.)
The rifle looks unwieldy, naturally, though not as unwieldy as this.
How well it works can’t be told from a single photograph, of the very limited Facebook post, by a Kurd who claims allegiance to The Islamic Front. It appears in any event to have been incomplete when this photo was made.
It is a reminder that the longer the the wars in the Middle East continue, the more arms shops like this one, and efforts like this or this, will be incubated. Rebels call this kind of project the natural outcome of necessity.  The risks associated with this kind of necessity will likely reverberate for many years.

Tibetan medicine highlights compassion in modern health care

NEW YORK — The 10 minutes I spent with Dr. Choeying Phuntsok, a stolid, middle-aged practitioner of Tibetan medicine in New York, were marked by an uncommon degree of eye contact and warmth. It was a short, preliminary consultation, just enough for him to take the Tibetan equivalent of my vitals. But it lasted about as long as a head-to-toe check-up at my regular doctor’s office.
He held my left wrist, then my right, listening to the “shape” and frequency of my pulse through his fingers, eyes clamped in concentration. He examined my tongue and inquired about digestion and menstruation, but also my cultural background and stress levels. His preliminary diagnosis: Low hemoglobin levels and pressure on my heart and lungs.
