We Could Soon Have Unlimited Transplant Organs

Futuristic ‘smart’ tissues could grow into any organ and automatically connect to the bodies of transplant patients, study reveals

Scientists have created synthetic tissues that can rebuild themselves into any part of the body, a new study reveals.

The researchers developed a new compound that mimics DNA’s instructions for cells to turn into various tissues.

Using this method, the University of California, San Francisco team could effectively automate these cells to take on various structures and colors, a process akin to what happens in the early stages of natural embryonic development.

Exerting this level of control to create complex biological forms indicates that scientists may soon be able to stop 3D-printing organs and grow them the way nature does instead. read more

Anti-Semitic Professor Bullies Students

from the American Spectator:

Over the past decade, University of California schools have been making headlines — not for athletic or academic achievements, but for the anti-Semitism pervading campus life. Case in point: UC San Diego.

An African-American student would be justifiably offended, perhaps frightened by the spectacle of Ku Klux Klan or white supremacy posters hanging from a professor’s office — hypothetically. Likewise, Jewish students visiting the office of Professor Yen Le Espiritu would be offended and frightened. But for them, it isn’t hypothetical.

Espiritu’s office door is adorned with posters glorifying Hamas and accusing Israel of engaging in apartheid. These displays of hate and anti-Semitism hint at someone who should not be influencing impressionable minds. And this is before stepping into her classroom. read more

Are Trump and Universities Headed for a Mexican Standoff?

Things are going to get very interesting, very quickly. At virtually ever post-election speech, Donald Trump continues to emphasize the point of building the wall along our Southern border. He has also reiterated his hard-line stance of ending sanctuary cities. And he’s not the only one. States are following his lead.

On December 1st, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted  that, “Texas will not tolerate sanctuary campuses or cities. I will cut funding for any state campus if it establishes sanctuary status.”

Two days later, Georgia lawmaker, Earl Ehrhart, said he plans to propose “legislation to defund Universities shielding illegals.”

Meanwhile, major and prestigious universities are girding their loins in preparation for a government crackdown. Harvard University and the University of California have formally announced that they will not comply should Trump follow through with this threat – which, by the way, is not a threat. What it is, is a decision by the president-elect to finally enforce Constitutional and legally passed federal immigration laws. read more

Podcast – A New Display at the Smithsonian Institution – Nation May Default in November – The Border Patrol is Not Welcome on This Campus

In this episode I discuss the edition of a lovely bronze bust to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery’s “Struggle For Justice” display. None other than the racist, eugenicist Margaret Sanger will be proudly displayed along side the very people she wished to exterminate.

Forget the Mayan calendar. The world may end on November 3rd, 2015, as the government runs out of money – unless those evil republicans agree to increase the nation’s debt limit, which currently tops out at a paltry $18.1 trillion.

The Border Patrol needs additional agents. Yes, they are hiring, but one college campus says they are not welcome at their fall career fair because it will make illegal immigrant students uncomfortable. read more
