Anti-aging therapies targeting senescent cells: Facts and fiction

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

It’s an exciting time to be an elderly mouse. Researchers believe that by removing senescent cells (cells with a persistent damage response), which naturally accumulate with age, senior rodents can regrow hair, run faster, and improve organ function. This strategy may bring us one step closer to the “fountain of youth,” but it’s important to be cautious and not hype, says researcher of aging Peter de Keizer of the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands. In an Opinion published December 29 in Trends in Molecule Medicine, he discusses the milestones the field still needs to hit before translation in humans is ready for discussion.

Clicks Versus Bricks: Online Retail Killing It

Posted by in category: futurism

Although I do luv online retail; my concern is will we wake up to a day with an online hangover where mid- and small-size towns/ cities no longer have the bricks-and-mortars to visit. I just hope we don’t go too overboard like we have on other things.


In the ongoing battle between traditional brick and mortar retail and online commerce, online retail has been killing it.

While Amazon is clearly the biggest beneficiary of this trend, there are many other companies benefiting as well.

Can Silicon Valley cure cancer? Napster founder Sean Parker says yes

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, media & arts

No surprises here. We all have known that with tech in medical research and development would and will continue to solve many diseases such as cancer as we are already seeing with gene and cell circuitry technology.


Silicon Valley thrives on disrupting the traditional ways we do many things: education, consuming music and other media, communicate with others, even how we stay healthy. Bill Gates and Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong know a few things about how to spend a lot of money to disrupt mainstream research while searching for cures in medicine.

Sean Parker hopes to join their ranks. In 1999, he co-founded the file-sharing service Napster, and in 2004, he became the first president of Facebook. Today, Parker announced his latest endeavor: a $250 million bet on eradicating cancer. Through the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, he says his plan is just a matter of time until it works.
