Sad one from late last week - Edmonton Oilers player Colby Cave passes away after surgery to remove a brain cyst: ... -1.5529808

Edmonton Oilers forward Colby Cave has died after suffering a brain bleed earlier this week.

The 25-year-old native of Battleford, Sask., had been in a medically induced coma in a Toronto hospital.

The Oilers confirmed Cave's death with a statement from Cave's wife, Emily.

"I and both our families are in shock but know our Colby was loved dearly by us, his family and friends, the entire hockey community, and many more. We thank everyone for their prayers during this difficult time," the statement said.

He had been in a coma since Tuesday at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, after being airlifted from a hospital in Barrie, Ont., on Monday.

Only 25 years old. Way too young, dammit. RIP, kid. :(

Cave underwent emergency surgery on Tuesday with doctors removing a colloid cyst that was causing pressure on his brain.

John Conway, inventor of the Game of Life, has died of COVID-19


Princeton mathematician John Conway has died of the coronavirus. He was 82 years old.

The British-born Conway spent the early part of his career at Cambridge before moving to Princeton University in the 1980s. He made contributions in various areas of mathematics but is best known for his invention of Conway's Game of Life, a cellular automaton in which simple rules give rise to surprisingly complex behaviors. It was made famous by a 1970 Scientific American article and has had a lively community around it ever since then. (Don't confuse it with Milton Bradley's board game of the same name.)

Conway's Game of Life is played on a two-dimensional plane with square cells. Each square can be either black ("alive") or white ("dead"). Simple deterministic rules dictate how the state of the board in one step leads to the next step. If a live square has two or three live neighbors (counting diagonals), it stays alive. If a dead cell has three live neighbors, it switches to black and becomes alive. Otherwise, the cell becomes—or stays—dead.

Conway developed these rules in the late 1960s, before the invention of the personal computer. He performed early experiments on a Go board and discovered that these rules could produce surprisingly complex behaviors. Before long, people were writing software to accelerate runs of the Game of Life.

Irfan Khan RIP

A veteran of nearly 80 films, he almost gave up acting in his 30s - after an unrewarding decade in TV soaps.

Khan lacked the looks for a traditional Bollywood romantic lead but made his name as a character actor in Hindi cinema and in Hollywood productions like Life of Pi, Slumdog Millionaire and Jurassic World.
