Breast Cancer Spreads More Aggressively at Night, Startling New Study Finds

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, futurism

When people with metastatic breast cancer close their eyes at night, their cancer awakes and starts to spread.

That’s the striking finding from a paper published in Nature this week that overturns the assumption that breast cancer metastasis happens at the same rate around the clock.

The result may change the way that doctors collect blood samples from people with cancer in the future, the researchers say.

Wearable muscles offer an impressive upper-body endurance boost

Posted by in categories: computing, cyborgs, wearables

Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a lightweight, wearable textile exomuscle that uses sensors embedded in its fabric to detect a user’s movement intentions and chip in extra force as needed. Initial tests show a significant boost in endurance.

Where powered exoskeletons act as both muscle and bone, providing force as well as structural support, exomuscles make use of the body’s own structure and simply chip in with additional force. As a result, they’re much lighter and less bulky, but they’re also limited in how much force they can deliver, since human bones and joints can only take so much.

The hacking industry faces the end of an era

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

NSO Group, the world’s most notorious hacking company, could soon cease to exist. But even if NSO Group is no more, there are plenty of rivals who will rush in to provide the hacking capability that more and more governments demand.


But even if NSO Group is no more, there are plenty of rivals who will rush in to take its place. And the same old problems haven’t gone away.

Let Your Mind Control the Computer

Posted by in categories: computing, neuroscience

Summary: New software can perform computerized image editing using only input from electrical activity in the human brain.

Source: University of Copenhagen.

Soon, we won’t need to use the Help function. The computer will sense that we have a problem and come to the rescue by itself. This is one of the possible implications of new research at University of Copenhagen and University of Helsinki.

We’ve been hearing about the potential of graphene for decades, and yet very few of the big promises have come to pass. But a new aluminum graphene battery design is coming out this year that could charge a phone in less than a minute, and it may be the future of energy storage.

Want to support the channel? Here’s how:

History In Making! Chinese Space Station ‘Tiangong’ Aims To Outdo The ISS & Have The Most ‘Precise Clock’ In Orbit

Posted by in category: space

China is set to make history when it finally completes the construction of its Space Station ‘Tiangong’ and makes it operational this year.

It will be the only country to have its own space station and perhaps the only one in the world after the International Space Station (ISS) retires sometime at the end of this decade.

A prostate cancer breakthrough could speed up research by 10 years

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, sex

Prostate cancer growth is driven by male sex hormones called androgens. And so, lowering levels of these hormones can help slow the growth of cancer.

Hormone therapy has been successful in keeping metastatic, or advanced prostate cancer, under control. Patients with metastatic prostate cancer often receive treatment with anti-hormonal therapy, which inhibits the signal sent out by testosterone that stimulates tumor growth.

But eventually, the tumor cells could become resistant to it. An international team of researchers led by the Netherlands Cancer Institute has now unveiled an “unexpected potential” solution, not designed to fight cancer but to target proteins that regulate a cell’s circadian rhythm.

New DNA Technology Is Shaking Up The Branches of The Evolutionary Tree

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

If you look different to your close relatives, you may have felt separate from your family. As a child, during particularly stormy fall outs you might have even hoped it was a sign that you were adopted.

As our new research shows, appearances can be deceptive when it comes to family. New DNA technology is shaking up the family trees of many plants and animals.

Hackers can bring ships and planes to a grinding halt. And it could become much more common

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, economics, transportation

Armed with little more than a computer, hackers are increasingly setting their sights on some of the biggest things that humans can build.

Vast container ships and chunky freight planes — essential in today’s global economy — can now be brought to a halt by a new generation of code warriors.

“The reality is that an aeroplane or vessel, like any digital system, can be hacked,” David Emm, a principal security researcher at cyber firm Kaspersky, told CNBC.

This galaxy cluster is so massive it warps space-time

Posted by in category: space

An image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a galaxy cluster named Abell 1,351, so unimaginably massive it is bending space-time itself.
