Cancer has always been thought of as something that grows rapidly and uncontrollably, but this view may be wrong.
New evidence suggests that cancer alternatively uses the “accelerator” and the “brake” in order to survive.
2040 Is Likely Earliest Date For Mars Sample Return (unless Sterilized) And Little More Than Astrobiology Technology Demo
The BBC has just reported that ESA have signed a letter of intent to co-operate with NASA on a Mars sample return (see Agencies aim to bring back rocks from Mars). I hope this does not mean a change of focus for ESA from in situ searches to a sample return. It would be so sad if it did mean that. The NASA program is more of an astrobiology technology demo than an actual astrobiological mission. They would return our very controversial Tissint and ALH84001 meteorites as top priority targets for the organics and in the case of Tissint the carbon isotope ratios - and would not be able to detect life amongst all the meteorite organics.
With The Science Settled That Neonicotinoids Don't Cause Honeybee Problems, Why Does Europe Need To Ban Them?
Why Polar Regions Of Mars Are Of Outstanding Interest For Astrobiology - And Why We Haven't Been Able To Explore Them Yet
The reason we know so little about the polar regions is not lack of interest. The polar regions are of great interest, for instance the Martian dry ice geysers in Richardson crater, one of the most interesting dynamic processes on Mars and the polar regions also have astrobiological interest too. There are potential habitats there that might even have fresh liquid water within 7 cms of the surface of clear ice - of all the unexpected things to find on Mars with its near vacuum atmosphere!
The study consisted of 20 healthy men and women age 60 to 79 from the Boulder area. Half took a placebo and half took 20 milligrams per day of a commercially available supplement called MitoQ, which is Coenzyme Q10 which uses chemistry to allow the antioxidant to penetrate the membrane of mitochondria, the energy factories of our cells.
Youtube Doomsday Channels May Earn Over $1 Million A Year - Young Teens Suicidal - Petition: Stop Supporting With Ad Revenue
Steve Olsen just revealed to Metro magazine that he earns $50K a year from his doomsday YouTube channel WSO. Based on this then we can begin to estimate the total earnings from all the high earners and it may well be over $1 million a year.Here is the reasoning.
Social Blade has the upper estimate as $20.7K for his channel. I hadn't had any way until today to judge if their estimates are right or not. It now seems that at least in this one case, it's an under estimate.
Rapper Kanye West once told the press he doesn't smile for photos because "it just wouldn't look as cool," and humanities scholars who have to write about something have written that the reason Dean became cool was because he didn't smile. But is it true?
People who believe they "eat more healthy" than others - the organic elite and vegetarians - have a food fetish for fresh vegetables. And Americans are told by government committees and pyramids they should want to eat vegetables, so they buy them and then throw them out when they start to spoil. When is the last time you threw out moldy pizza?
The reason is because a new analysis in Moleular Autism finds that Hans Asperger, the Austrian pediatrician for whom a mild segment of the autism spectrum is named, collaborated with Nazis and helped kill disabled children.
Nonetheless, some people swear by it, much as people believe other placebos. What to do if your doctor recommends it? In the United States, a doctor is ethically forbidden from prescribing a placebo outside a clinical trial, but it is known some do. And lots of folk medicine/alternative medicine/integrative medicine people will claim it works if you believe it works.
In 1907,Francis Galton recorded the entries from a competition where people guessed the weight of an ox. After analyzing hundreds of estimates the statistician found that while individual guesses varied wildly, the median of the entries was surprisingly accurate, within one percent of the ox's real weight.
Galton published the results and his theory of collective intelligence, the "wisdom of crowds," became part of the lexicon.
Advocates are claiming medical marijuana can help to fight the opioid epidemic but data show the opposite. Rather than being at lower risk, people who use medical marijuana may be at higher risk for non-medical prescription drug use.
Much of medical marijuana usage was always recreational and a new study in the Journal of Addiction Medicine finds that people who use medical marijuana have higher rates of prescription drug use - including pain relievers.
Does Use of Medical Marijuana Increase or Decrease Prescription Drug Use?
So Now You Are Celebrating Surviving The End Of The World - But Expect After Effects For A Few Weeks
For the last three weeks we've had constant PM's and comments on Doomsday Debunked as a result of a viral hoax that pranked probably hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Perhaps you are one of them, and got scared of an alien invasion?
It’s on the basis of some tweets by anonymous people that sketched a bizarre story that for some reason got many hooked, partly because it made no sense and they kept puzzling over this bizarre stupid story, even knowing it was silly, still they couldn’t help but nag away at it and getting more and more scared because it didin’t make sense.
