Boron Hydrogel Helps Muscles Heal

A newly developed hydrogel could greatly accelerate the recovery times for damaged muscles, by flooding the injury site with boron
A newly developed hydrogel could greatly accelerate the recovery times for damaged muscles, by flooding the injury site with boron

 

Over the past few years we’ve seen some interesting examples of how injectable hydrogels can boost the recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, whether by flooding them with stem cells or acting as supporting scaffolds. Scientists in Spain have now developed a hydrogel that releases boron to dramatically accelerate the formation of new muscle fibers. read more

A team from Georgia Tech has just announced a world-first: a 3D-printed rectifying antenna the size of a playing card that can harvest electromagnetic energy from 5G signals and use it to power devices, turning 5G networks into wireless power grids. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Astronauts with Assault Rifles?

YouTube/Apple TV+
  • The second season of the Apple TV+ series For All Mankind shows U.S. Marines in space using M16s.
  • Astronauts probably wouldn’t use real M16s in space—but they could still use guns.
  • Low gravity and crazy temperature swings would make traditional guns inoperable in space. read more

Fancy That – Brits Find that Herd Immunity is a Real Thing

by: Brent Smith

Well, it’s looking more and more like we were right about the Covid-19 virus and herd immunity.

It’s also looking like all the shutdowns, lockdowns,, mask mandates, and arbitrarily chosen social distance orders which caused untold psychological and physical damage to people, did little more than kick the can down the road. As it turns out, those countries who suffered the earliest waves of infection are now fairing better than those who didn’t. read more

Back in 2019, Sigma unveiled a 24.6-megapixel full-frame mirrorless camera claimed to be the world’s smallest and lightest. Now the imaging company has turned the fp into a series with the addition of the fp L, which packs a 61-MP full-frame sensor into the same body dimensions as its older sibling. read more

Ironically, many of the places that most require water purification have the least-developed infrastructure. That’s where a new filtration device comes in, as it’s activated by the sun – and it’s said to perform better than other solar-powered purification systems.

Synthetic Cell Division

I rarely, if ever, comment or add to any of these science or tech articles, but I have to say – this one worries me. Yes, it’s absolutely fascinating, but it’s sci-fi creepy. This seems to me to be the epitome of just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
Researchers have created a synthetic single-celled organism (not pictured) that can divide properly
Researchers have created a synthetic single-celled organism (not pictured) that can divide properly

For the first time, a team of scientists has created a synthetic single-celled organism that can divide and grow like a regular living cell. This breakthrough could lead to designer cells that can produce useful chemicals on demand or treat disease from inside the body.

Further Proof Covid has become just another Political Weapon

by: Brent Smith

Let’s talk about weapons of war. No, not scary black “assault” rifles. I’m talking about the weapon of disinformation and the war on the people, devised and implemented by the global elite. I’m talking about possibly hundreds of thousands of sick and dead from Covid-19 – most as it turns out, could have been prevented by the simple use of a single drug, Ivermectin.

A drug that was discovered 46 years ago, in 1975, and has been in medical use since 1981, And it is FDA approved, unlike all the new and hastily developed vaccines, that cost billions to produce and distribute. read more

A Brain Cancer Vaccine?

A new vaccine is designed to help train immune cells to target a mutation unique to brain tumors

A new article published in the journal Nature is reporting promising results from a landmark Phase 1 human trial testing a novel vaccine designed to help a patient’s immune system better target brain tumors. The data suggests the experimental vaccine is safe and stimulates a significant immune response that slows tumor progression. A larger Phase 2 trial is currently being planned. read more

  • Over the course of four nights in 2019, several unidentified drones visited U.S. Navy destroyers off the coast of California.
  • The drones, although seemingly harmless, displayed an obvious interest in the destroyers.
  • The Tic Tac-shaped objects were reportedly similar to the UFOs that Navy pilots observed in 2004. read more
