The Marine Corps has started fielding next-generation body armor to grunts

Posted by in category: military

After years in the making, the Marine Corps has finally started fielding next-generation body armor to lighten the load for grunts in the field.

The new lightweight protective vest, known as the Plate Carrier Generation III, is designed to provide additional protection from shrapnel and other fragmentation for Marines, according to a statement from Marine Corps Systems Command.

More importantly, the new system is 25 percent lighter than the Corps’ existing plate carrier, providing a smaller footprint in terms of the load a grunt has to haul and in turn reducing fatigue and improving operational capability while maintaining a similar level of protection.

Physicists Have Tested The Speed of Light at The Highest Energies Yet

Posted by in categories: energy, physics


Physicists have conducted the most high-energy test of the speed of light yet, and found that it is still constant, everywhere in the Universe, even in gamma rays spewed out of sources such as exploding stars.

This means that, even at the highest energies we can detect, one of the pillars of Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity still stands firm.

Coronavirus leaves US laptops and home devices exposed to cyberattacks

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, cybercrime/malcode

As the coronaviruspandemic sweeps across the United States, another invisible enemy is threatening America’s data security.

From stealing data to disseminating misinformation, hackers are taking advantage of the US at an especially vulnerable time during the war against the deadly outbreak.

As millions of Americans have been ordered to work from home to contain the spread of the virus, data is now being transmitted outside secure business networks, making it a treasure trove for hackers.

Backstory on Covid 19 patient treated with Exosomes two days ago in Jersey

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

If new cells, with new DNA, RNA polymerases and nucleotides can be generated to replace the cells affected by the virus, the enzyme of the virus can be eliminated, and the virus will be unable to make copies of its RNA. This can be done by stimulating the stem cells to become cells with new DNA, RNA, proteins, and nucleotides. Stem Cell Neurotherapy sends therapeutic messages to the DNA inside the stem cells’ nucleus. DNA sends the information to the RNA molecules called messenger RNA. The transfer RNA synthesizes proteins to carry out the instructions given by messenger RNA templates for the stem cells to become new cells and tissues to replace those infected by the coronavirus. We have produced and developed Stem Cell Neurotherapy for COVID-19 patients. The therapy is designed to help the patients generate new cells in their lungs, liver, kidney, and other organs to replace those cells that have been infected by COVID-19. These new cells will eliminate the fever, coughing, headaches, breathing problems, and other symptoms related to COVID-19. More details are at: Stem Cell Neurotherapy on Facebook…

How did a U.S. patient in a New Jersey hospital become the first presumed Covid 19 respiratory failure patient in the world to receive stem cell exosomes? Get the inside scoop!

Springing an evolutionary trap on cancer

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Cancer cells have the extraordinary evolutionary potential to adapt and acquire resistance to most conventional and targeted therapies. In a new study, Lin et al., develop a systematic approach to identify combination therapies that produce cancer traps, in which evading the first drug makes the cancer vulnerable to the second.
