Bioengineered hybrid muscle fiber for regenerative medicine

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, life extension

Muscle constitutes the largest organ in humans, accounting for 40% of body mass, and it plays an essential role in maintaining life. Muscle tissue is notable for its unique ability for spontaneous regeneration. However, in serious injuries such as those sustained in car accidents or tumor resection which results in a volumetric muscle loss (VML), the muscle’s ability to recover is greatly diminished. Currently, VML treatments comprise surgical interventions with autologous muscle flaps or grafts accompanied by physical therapy. However, surgical procedures often lead to reduced muscular function, and in some cases result in a complete graft failure. Thus, there is a demand for additional therapeutic options to improve muscle loss recovery.

A promising strategy to improve the functional capacity of the damaged muscle is to induce de novo regeneration of skeletal muscle via the integration of transplanted cells. Diverse types of cells, including satellite cells (muscle stem cells), myoblasts, and mesenchymal stem cells, have been used to treat muscle loss. However, invasive muscle biopsies, poor cell availability, and limited long-term maintenance impede clinical translation, where millions to billions of mature cells may be needed to provide therapeutic benefits.

NASA’s Rover Perseverance Safely Lands On Mars

Posted by in category: space

The rover was aiming for Jezero Crater, a place on Mars that scientists think was once home to a lake that dried up 3.5 billion years ago.

NASA’s six-wheeled rover landed successfully on Mars yesterday. NPR’s Joe Palca talks about the descent and landing, and what’s next for the mission.

What is the Samsung Infinity-O Display?

Posted by in category: mobile phones

Introduction Samsung wasn’t as quick to embrace the display notch trend for the front camera even though many of its rivals had made the move years ago. That all changed in 2018 when the company revealed four different “Infinity” display concepts. Only then did it become apparent that Samsung was considering the full gamut of punch hole, notch and no-notch solutions for smartphone displays with significantly slimmer bezels.

HPS Home Power Solutions Receives 2021 Handelsblatt Energy Award for its Hydrogen Power Storage System

Posted by in categories: climatology, habitats, solar power, sustainability

Berlin –Berlin-based HPS Home Power Solutions is pleased to announce it has received the 2021 Handelsblatt Energy Award in the category of “Smart City” for its picea system, the first marketable independent, solar-hydrogen powered CO2 free home energy system worldwide. The award was given by a top-class jury.

Based on a combination of solar energy and innovative hydrogen technology, the picea system is the first year-round, CO2 free, independent power supply for one-and two-family houses. The picea system is highly effective with about 90% utilization rate and offers more than 100 times the storage capacity of standard household-storage batteries.

“We are extremely pleased to receive this award recognizing the development of our picea system into a marketable clean energy solution,” said Zeyad Abul-Ella, co-founder and managing director of HPS Home Power Solutions.” HPS has made hydrogen technology more widely available to household consumers for the first time. Our product will be indispensable in the smart cities of the future. The Handelsblatt award is a recognition of the considerable reduction of CO2 emissions picea offers and the value of German innovation in the field of climate protection technology,“he added.

Meet the Latest ‘Super Plant’ to Fight Air Pollution

Posted by in categories: health, sustainability


Planting greenery is often touted as one solution to the threat of air pollution, but which species are the most effective against this major public health hazard? Researchers at the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK set out to answer that question and in the process discovered a “super plant,” Franchet’s cotoneaster, or Cotoneaster franchetii.
