Stem Cells

There are still limitations to stem cell technology. One major limitation is that we are realizing age and environment can have a profound effect on stem cell function and even safety. Essentially, the older we are, the older all of our cells (including stem cells) become, and as a result, our bodies’ natural repair mechanisms deteriorate or stop.

The notion that “backing up” our cells and stem cells could be a valuable tool for improving and extending our health in the near future. We can stop the biological aging of our stem cells by putting them in a deep freeze at an earlier age, when they have fewer mutations and damage. Banking our stem cells will then allow us to eventually generate and bank other tissues for self-use, like a population of heart cells for cardiac repair or a population of liver cells to diagnose drug toxicity. As technology moves towards a future where it’s technologically possible to engineer tissues and organs from our own stem cells, backing stem cells up today can give us the best opportunity to use them when we need them.

Particle Physics Discovery: Fusing Heavy Quarks Can Produce 10 Times More Energy Than Nuclear Fusion

Quarks
Quarks are the most basic building blocks of matter. The protons and neutrons that make up matter are composed of quarks. Unlike protons and electrons, which have charges of +1 and -1, however, quarks have fractional electric charge. Quarks that are joined together form composite particles called hadrons. Quarks come in six flavors namely: up, down, top, bottom, strange and charm.
In a new study, researchers showed that two bottom quarks could theoretically fuse together in a powerful flash that can result in massive amount of energy that can spill out into the universe.
The fusion of two bottom quarks will produce will produce 138 megaelectronvolts (MeV), which is eight times more powerful than individual nuclear fusion events inside a hydrogen bomb.

The future unlocks the secrets of nature.

What is Time?

The only time we have is now. Everyone is at a slightly different time. What does gravity have to do with it?

““An asymmetry must exist here somewhere, but we simply do not understand where the difference is,” Smorra said, Newsweek noted. “What is the source of the symmetry break?”

What does time and gravity have to do with it? What about entropy being part of the mix?

Inovation

“Here’s something that may sound like a contradiction in terms: low-fat pigs.

But that’s exactly what Chinese scientists have created using new genetic engineering techniques.

In a paper published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the scientists report that they have created 12 healthy pigs with about 24 percent less body fat than normal pigs.”

““Doctors are doing amazing things with [human] stem cells,” says Jebelli, including reprogramming them into brain cells that are then implanted into Alzheimer’s patients’ brains. This treatment will require more research and time, but Jebelli says it’s “still a possibility.”

Given the potential of stem cells and drugs that could prevent the disease from developing, Jebelli is quite optimistic about the future of Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment. He says: “We’re at the beginning of the end.”

Added-HOW LIFE BEGAN: MISSING LINK CHEMICAL IN FIRST LIVING CELL DISCOVERED
A team of scientists working to replicate the conditions of early Earth in modern lab experiments may have cracked one of the key problems in understanding how life began. They think they’ve found a compound that plausibly could have been present and could have handled phosphorylation, a step required to produce several building blocks of life.

Fear that beliefs are not an accurate description of life on earth prevent the needed research in Mississippi to find out what really happened to start life. When do we start to question traditions?

Rules Do Not Count in Subjectivity

Rule #2: Keep a sense of humor through all the absurdity. And, there’s a lot these days.

Subjective Annihilation Theory applies to our rhetorical human-symbolic quest for un-subjectivity (a state perhaps more commonly conceptualized as utopia or paradise) wherein we continuously strive to reduce our subjectivity to other things and conditions within our natural and socially constructed worlds.

Hypocrite

It seems that much of the public awareness is just watching acting. The news media is hype to stir emotions, marketing tries to get you to buy, groups want you to join their cause and donate. Many service workers put on a smile or show to please you even when they hate your guts. It is all about money or some type of greed. Look at the republican congressman that is against abortion until it is his girlfriend that gets pregnant. Police that take bribes or steal from those they arrest. Corporations that tell you the customer comes first but then are cheating to increase profits. Charities that pay executives high salaries and expenses. Religious organizations that abuse children and hide it then pay because of the courts but do not punish the offender.

Fake news is the result of hypocrites that want the truth but lie about it. Government is for all the people not just special causes that benefit a few. What ever happened to the truth that most people just do not know what is happening? Most people do not know if the media is telling the truth. I do not think the media even knows if what it is reporting is truth or some kind of marketing stunt. Have you seen those stories about some product or service that looks like a news story only to find out it is written by a corporate person as a news release.

In these days of mass communication less and less of what we see and read is truth.

WOKE

LOL, a word that has been mangled to project awareness of some social problems. It seems to be a product of the side that has the problems. Being aware requires one to not take sides but to understand all the facets and nuances of an issue. Better communication starts with the universal use of the language.

Cultural Fashion

What role does eye candy play in our culture of consumption? When I came to Tupelo the thing I was told was the furniture industry is a fashion industry. Most of the commercials on TV are about how things look and not how they work. Nothing of what they are made of or who makes them. What makes one product better suited for the application than another? The auto sales pitch is a prime example. It is all about your emotions and how much others admire your purchase. The sales pitch is all about savings. You save nothing when you consume and spend money. The concept they use, as a ploy about savings, is how much less you pay from the imaginary retail price. Keystone is setting the retail price at double of what the retailer pays the manufacture for it. In cars the price is keep from the customer by bate and switch tactics. The dealer price is not what the car cost the dealer. There are holdbacks and other dealer incentives to make more dealer profits. Then the advertised price is not what it is going to cost you. They did not mention the cars they have are not the base cars as they have options. Then there is several dealer add ons such as cleaning, inspecting, marketing costs, sales tax, and the list goes on.

Why do we consume more than what it takes to survive a comfortable life? Most of it is status and how we look to our peers. We are a trained people to consume from the time we are born. The system requires growth to cover debts. Psychological manipulation has us working and buying. Planned obsolescence has us buy more and replace what we already have. We even pay to go places to be marketed to. The local home show is an example of that. Many people are not educated Engineers able to ask the right questions about the quality of the product. The sales man could not answer them anyway. What role does art play? Do collections bring happiness? In a finite world that sells tomorrow for a bit of fashion today, the total number of consumers plays the biggest role in humanity’s survival.

Compassion

Does society have the power to demand the people have compassion? In the tale about the Good Samaritan several people passed without giving help. It seems the percent of people being good is a minority. In a democracy that would not be enough votes to pass.

Today’s world has a lot more rules and control over people. So much so that they can not be enforced so the government selectively enforces and that creates propaganda to get the others to follow the rules. But what about the requirement of the citizen’s obligation to report crime? When 90% of crime goes unpunished, I have to wonder about the system’s ability to protect me and my rights. Then we have local and state governments refusing to obey Federal laws. Where does that leave us?

I suspect we need to discriminate which people we are Good Samaritan’s to and which we have a natural fear to abandon. Do emotions always give us the best signal for survival for our selves and all of humanity? Those with the survival genes pass them on. Those that take more high risks do not live long enough to pass on their irrational emotional judgements. Yes some high risks pay off and some risk taking is necessary for progress. Are you smart enough to choose which?
