Scientists discover genetic timetable of brain’s aging process

Posted by in categories: genetics, life extension, neuroscience

Brain scientists have identified a genetic programme that controls the way our brain changes throughout life.

The programme controls how and when brain genes are expressed at different times in a person’s life to perform a range of functions, the study found.

Experts say the timing is so precise that they can tell the age of a person by looking at the genes that are expressed in a sample of brain tissue.

How computers learn to recognize objects instantly

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Ten years ago, researchers thought that getting a computer to tell the difference between a cat and a dog would be almost impossible. Today, computer vision systems do it with greater than 99 percent accuracy. How?

Joseph Redmon works on the YOLO (You Only Look Once) system, an open-source method of object detection that can identify objects in images and video — from zebras to stop signs — with lightning-quick speed. In a remarkable live demo, Redmon shows off this important step forward for applications like self-driving cars, robotics and even cancer detection.

UV emission linked to Supernova explosion mechanism

Posted by in category: cosmology

Supernovae are an explosion of a massive supergiant star which may shine with the brightness of 10 billion suns! The study of these phenomena has unlocked mysteries about black holes, the origin of metals such as gold and the dynamic of the universe. Supernovae are rare — the last supernova seen in our galaxy was recorded in 1604, according to NASA. However, the Universe is large and astronomers estimated that one of the Milky Way’s massive stars explodes about every 50 years on average [1].

Solar Physicist Explains How The Sun Controls Climate, Not Man

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience, policy, sustainability

Are these huge solar flares causing massive hurricanes or Man made Climate Change? Interview with Harvard-Smithsonian Solar Physicist Wei-Hock “Willie” Soon about how solar cycle accounts for climate change.

In this exclusive interview, Infowars reporters Millie Weaver and David Knight talk with Harvard-Smithsonian Solar Physicist Wei-Hock “Willie” Soon about how solar cycle account for climate change. Soon uses science to dispel the false notion that CO2 emissions are to blame for ‘global warming’ and that it is nothing more than the politicization of pseudoscience for policy makers.

If Atoms Are Mostly Empty Space, Why Do Objects Look And Feel Solid?

Posted by in category: particle physics

Chemist John Dalton proposed the theory that all matter and objects are made up of particles called atoms, and this is still accepted by the scientific community, almost two centuries later. Each of these atoms is each made up of an incredibly small nucleus and even smaller electrons, which move around at quite a distance from the centre. If you imagine a table that is a billion times larger, its atoms would be the size of melons. But even so, the nucleus at the centre would still be far too small to see and so would the electrons as they dance around it. So why don’t our fingers just pass through atoms, and why doesn’t light get through the gaps?

UK wind electricity cheaper than nuclear: data

Posted by in categories: business, nuclear energy, sustainability

The price of electricity from offshore wind in Britain has dipped below the level guaranteed to Hinkley Point, raising questions about the construction of the vast nuclear power station.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy disclosed Monday the results of auctions for state subsidies for three new offshore farms.

Denmark’s DONG Energy won the auction to build Hornsea Two, which will become the world’s biggest offshore wind farm off the coast of Yorkshire in northern England.
