Transplanted Senescent Cells Induce an Osteoarthritis-Like Condition in Mice

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Osteoarthritis and senescent cells the connection becomes a little clearer!

Another step closer to the link between senescent cells and Osteoarthritis. Here we see mice receiving transplanted senescent cells which induce a disease state similar to Osteoarthritis. Yet further confirmation that the SENS approach to removing senescent cells is beneficial.

“Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading form of arthritis in the elderly, causing pain, disability, and immobility. OA has been associated with accumulation of senescent cells in or near joints. However, evidence for a causal link between OA and cellular senescence is lacking. Here, we present a novel senescent cell transplantation model involving injection of small numbers of senescent or nonsenescent cells from the ear cartilage of luciferase-expressing mice into the knee joint area of wild-type mice. By using bioluminescence and 18FDG PET imaging, we could track the injected cells in vivo for more than 10 days. Transplanting senescent cells into the knee region caused leg pain, impaired mobility, and radiographic and histological changes suggestive of OA. Transplanting nonsenescent cells had less of these effects. Thus, senescent cells can induce an OA-like state and targeting senescent cells could be a promising strategy for treating OA.”

Building “genetic circuits” in cells could kill tumors

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics

More on the cell circuited technology that will deprive cancer cells of oxygen.

Imagine having cells in your body that can actively repel cancer in a way that makes it theoretically impossible for you to suffer from it.

Researchers at the U.K.’s University of Southampton…have engineered cells with a so-called “built-in genetic circuit” capable of producing a molecule for inhibiting the ability of tumors to grow and survive in the body.

Neuroscience Is a Tool of War

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, drones, government, military, neuroscience

What could once only be imagined in science fiction is now increasingly coming to fruition: Drones can be flown by human brains’ thoughts. Pharmaceuticals can help soldiers forget traumatic experiences or produce feelings of trust to encourage confession in interrogation. DARPA-funded research is working on everything from implanting brain chips to “neural dust” in an effort to alleviate the effects of traumatic experience in war. Invisible microwave beams produced by military contractors and tested on U.S. prisoners can produce the sensation of burning at a distance.

What all these techniques and technologies have in common is that they’re recent neuroscientific breakthroughs propelled by military research within a broader context of rapid neuroscientific development, driven by massive government-funded projects in both America and the European Union. Even while much about the brain remains mysterious, this research has contributed to the rapid and startling development of neuroscientific technology.

MSFT Stock: Could Microsoft Corporation Become A Trillion Dollar Company

Posted by in categories: business, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Here is the bottom line: the companies that launches QC devices, network infrastructures (platforms, IaaS, SaaS, etc.) will win as everyone knows those billions invested by tech in AI will finally have the ROI that they need to show to their shareholders at the end of the day. When you have consumers and businesses too scared to use your products thanks to the Dark Web, etc. QC is your only way out of this mess.

Without QC infrastructure; means you’re AI investment is limited and you will not see the real ROI potential that you could have. And, synbio technology such as cell circuitry used to eradicate cancer and other illness or disabilities, connected humans, etc. will not have the level of adoption and performance we need to make this area impactful and life changing for so many. Personally, I look forward to a day when hospitals, going to the doctor, etc. are things of the past.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) can come up with its own scalable operational quantum computer by 2025. This could lead to quantum jump in MSFT stock in long term.

Majorana Particles Observed for 1st Time: Contain Their Own Antiparticles –“Impacts Future of Quantum Computers”

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

Around 75 years ago, Italian physicist Ettore Majorana hypothesized the existence of exotic particles that are their own antiparticles. Since then, interest in these particles, known as Majorana fermions, has grown enormously given that they could play a role in creating a quantum computer. Majoranas have already been described very well in theory. However, examining them and obtaining experimental evidence is difficult because they have to occur in pairs but are then usually bound to form one normal electron. Ingenious combinations and arrangements of various materials are therefore required to generate two Majoranas and keep them apart.

The Missing Universe: CERN Has Started Searching for “Dark Photons”

Posted by in categories: cosmology, particle physics

In Brief

  • Dark matter seems to outweigh visible matter roughly six to one, making up about 27% of the universe.
  • Physicists from CERN now believe there’s a fifth universal force that rules the behavior of dark matter, and is transmitted by a particle called the dark photon.

Thanks To ‘Fight For $15’ Minimum Wage, McDonald’s Unveils Job-Replacing Self-Service Kiosks Nationwide

Posted by in categories: business, economics, employment, policy, robotics/AI

Technological unemployment speeding up, and the elite types as always trying to get the poor and middle class to go at each others throats, rather than address the elephant charging at both of them, that robots and AI are coming for all the jobs in under 10 years now.

Other states are also learning the same basic economic lesson: Customers have a limit to what they will pay for service. Voters in Washington, Colorado, Maine and Arizona voted to raise minimum wages on Election Day, convinced of the policy’s merits after millions of dollars were spent by union advocates. In the immediate aftermath, family-owned restaurants, coffee shops and even childcare providers have struggled to absorb the coming cost increase—with parents paying the cost through steeper childcare bills, and employees paying the cost through reduced shift hours or none at all.

The out-of-state labor groups who funded these initiatives aren’t shedding tears over the consequences. Like their Soviet-era predecessors who foolishly thought they could centrally manage prices and business operations to fit an idealistic worldview, economic reality keeps ruining the model of all gain and no pain. This brings me to my last correct prediction, which is that the Fight for $15 was always more a creation of the left-wing Service Employees International Union (SEIU) rather than a legitimate grassroots effort. Reuters reported last year that, based on federal filings, the SEIU had spent anywhere from $24 million to $50 million on the its Fight for $15 campaign, and the number has surely increased since then.

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

The CLONED dogs of war: Russia unveils genetically-enhanced canines which will work with Putin’s Special Forces and were created by scientist attempting to restore woolly mammoths

  • The three Belgian Malinois were cloned by a South Korean professor
