US flu season arrives early, driven by an unexpected virus

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. winter flu season is off to its earliest start in more than 15 years.

An early barrage of illness in the South has begun to spread more broadly, and there’s a decent chance flu season could peak much earlier than normal, health officials say.

The last flu season to rev up this early was in 2003–2004 — a bad one. Some experts think the early start may mean a lot of suffering is in store, but others say it’s too early to tell.

World must prepare for biological weapons that target ethnic groups based on genetics, says Cambridge University

Biological weapons could be built which target individuals in a specific ethnic group based on their DNA, a report by the University of Cambridge has warned.

Researchers from Cambridge’s Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) said the government was failing to prepare for ‘human-driven catastrophic risks’ that could lead to mass harm and societal collapse.

In recent years advances in science such as genetic engineering, and artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous vehicles have opened the door to a host of new threats.

What is the Higgs boson and why does it matter?

Posted by in categories: alien life, particle physics

The higgs boson is most likely the greatest particle because it could allow for antigravity because it turns off the mass of an object. Basically it would be the master key for even understanding the dimensions of physics. Simply by allowing a near genesis. It can essentially allow for matter creation a sorta building block for creation. It is one of the greatest particles ever discovered. A particle so powerful that when harnessed it would almost allow for anything to happen. You could have crispr teleportation with higgs field dampening. Let’s say that myth is real then if it were real then it would lead to a particle like the higgs boson. Once harnessed it could allow for alien like technologies essentially a very powerful particle to allow to true impossibilities. I think even in a grain of sand we can find endless possibilities which is proof evident of something beyond understanding. Some have said that we started out in just hydrogen but the physics created the universe. Which would mean once the higgs is harnessed it could allow for creation technology or what the exterrestials knew for generations that we are never alone the universe is filled with wonder. Basically the higgs would allow for antigravity but all the mythological things. It would prove the existence of aliens even god most likely. Science could prove the most important thing that it could bring civilization into a new level technology no longer bound by terrestrial things but essentially it could allow for anything once harnessed.


Theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss explains the possible meaning and significance of finding the Higgs.

Brains of autistic people show unusual left-right symmetry

Posted by in category: neuroscience

The hemispheres in autistic people’s brains are more symmetrical than those of their typical peers, according to the largest imaging study to explore this relationship1. It is unclear what this difference means, however.

Typical people’s brains show a slight asymmetry between the left and right hemispheres, especially in regions associated with language. These differences are less pronounced in autistic people, the new study found.

The unusual symmetry seems to affect nine regions, mostly in the cerebral cortex. The results suggest that altered development of the brain’s left and right hemispheres contributes to autism.
