First gene therapy for children is approved in Europe: Radical treatment for rare ‘bubble boy’ disorder has a 100% survival rate

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Great news for precision medicine.


European regulators have given the green light for a British drug firm to produce the world’s first gene therapy treatment for children.

GlaxoSmithKline was given approval by the European Commission to provide the treatment to children with a rare immune disorder — which can be fatal for those affected.

Creation of Weak Materials Offers Strong Possibilities for Electronics

Posted by in categories: computing, electronics, physics

New fundamental research by UT Dallas physicists may accelerate the drive toward more advanced electronics and more powerful computers.

The scientists are investigating materials called topological insulators, whose surface electrical properties are essentially the opposite of the properties inside.

“These materials are made of the same thing throughout, from the interior to the exterior,” said Dr. Fan Zhang, assistant professor of physics at UT Dallas. “But, the interior does not conduct electrons — it’s an insulator — while the electrons on the surface are free to move around. The surface is therefore a conductor, like a metal, but it is in fact more robust than a metal.”

Black Holes possibly be Holograms?


Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Theoretical Physics in Munich, Germany, have used quantum gravity to estimate the chaotic structure that may exist within black holes.

Quantum thermal transistor can control heat currents

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

(Phys.org)—Researchers have designed a quantum thermal transistor that can control heat currents, in analogy to the way in which an electronic transistor controls electric current. The thermal transistor could be used in applications that recycle waste heat that has been harvested from power stations and other energy systems. Currently, there are methods for transporting and guiding this heat, but not for controlling, amplifying, and switching the heat on and off, as the quantum thermal transistor can do.

The researchers, Karl Joulain et al., at the University of Poitiers and CNRS in France, have published a paper on the quantum thermal transistor in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.

“To manage electricity, one uses electronic diodes, transistor and amplifiers,” Joulain told Phys.org. “We would like to do the same thing with thermal currents. We would like to make logical thermal circuits in the same way electronic thermal circuits have been designed. In this way, wasted heat could be guided, switched on or off, amplified or modulated.”

North Korean Facebook clone spotted; hacked shortly

Posted by in categories: computing, cybercrime/malcode

According to Mirror Online, the youngster is studying computing at college.

This gave the 18-year-old full control over the site, including the ability to “delete and suspend users, change the site’s name, censor certain words and manage the eventual ads”, as well as being able to “see everyone’s emails”.

Go to starcon.net.kp and you’ll find a very familiar looking website.

The Coming Genetic Editing Age of Humans Won’t Be Easy to Stomach

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics, government, health, transhumanism, transportation

My new article for Vice Motherboard on extreme biohacking that compares the Uncanny Valley to Speciation Syndrome:


Transhumanism tech like CRISPR, 3D printing, and coming biological regeneration of limbs will not only change lives for those that have deformities, but it will change how we look at things like a person with a three-foot tail and maybe even a second head.

At the core of all this is the ingrained belief that the human being is pre-formed organism, complete with one head, four limbs, and other standard anatomical parts. But in the transhumanist age, the human being should be looked at more like a machine—like a car, if you will: something that comes out a particular way with certain attributes, but then can be heavily modified. In fact, it can be rebuilt from scratch.

Futurists Were Right: 10 Predictions Made

Posted by in categories: finance, futurism

The world of money and finance is completely different than it was a century ago, with decentralized banks and electronic balances making it possible to access your funds from just about anywhere on Earth. Writer Edward Bellamy’s 1888 novel Looking Backward was a huge success in its day, but it’s best remembered for introducing the concept of “universal credit.” Citizens of his future utopia carry a card that allows them to spend “credit” from a central bank on goods and services without paper money changing hands.

$9,000,000,000,000 MISSING From The Federal Reserve SHOCKING FOOTAGE

Posted by in category: finance

So, sharing this for us who hope to save humanity from bad decisions. US Federal Reserve doesn’t know where they misplaced $9 trillion. Makes one ask “why is it that we still are paying taxes when the US misplaces $9 trillion dollars?”


Rep. Alan Grayson questions the FED inspector General where $9 TRillion dollars went… and Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman hasn’t a clue…Dunno whether to laugh or cry — I am still getting over the shock and have watched 4 times — LISTEN carefully to what she says — THEY HAVE NO JURISTRICTION to investigate the fed!!! Only their programs?? OK the world has been fooled long enough ENOUGH ENOUGH!!! Get the hell outa paper money people and if you buy gold and silver — get the real stuff not paper gold etc. This is pure evil!
