A team of researchers led by professor of pharmaceutical sciences John Chaputa at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is developing methods for storing vast amounts of data on strands of synthetic DNA that are much tougher than natural DNA. The technique has already been used to encode the US Declaration of Independence on a single molecule.
By taking their microscopes to the skeletal structures of the human body, scientists in Australia have unearthed an entirely new type of bone cell, one they believe may play an important role in the development of various bone diseases. The new cell switches on a number of unique genes, shedding new light on the way bones degenerate and reform and opening up new possibilities for the treatment of conditions like osteoporosis.

In January of this this year I posted a piece on World Net Daily explaining how I was not at all convinced that new strains of COVID-19 even existed.
I expressed it as just another excuse to keep us masked-up and locked down.
Can you blame any of us for being, at the very least, skeptical, “after all the misstatements, half-truths and outright lies we’ve been fed, not only scientifically and medically, but politically, in regards to the election, I’m finding it increasing difficult to believe that a new, mutated strain of the virus has been discovered, just as the vaccine is being widely distributed.”
Smartphones have revolutionized photography, making it vastly easier than ever before to capture and share great images. And on the other side of the coin, camera advances are probably responsible for a lot of smartphone sales these days; phones have been more than good enough in most areas for many years now, and a terrific new camera provides a compelling reason to upgrade where a processing boost or RAM upgrade might not move the needle.
- Several countries have tried to make flying tanks, which can self-deploy over long distances.
- The appeal is obvious: A flying tank would eliminate the need for a large cargo transport to carry it.
- While the flying tank concept is theoretically possible, it requires too many design compromises to make an effective tank.

I agree, as do I usually, with Daniel Horowitz, that masking-up of our children is child abuse. But I think it’s worse than that.
Any student of history knows that if one (or group of ones) wants to change the behavior of its people, it’s a lot easier to get to them early, when they are young, impressionable and know nothing of history.
If you train children to think and act a certain way, they will likely take those lessons through to adulthood. If you train them to be fearful children, the majority will likely become fearful adults. The same goes for compliance. It’s human nature and has been repeated throughout history.
New research has found one in five people have a specific genetic mutation that confers greater resilience to cold temperatures. The experimental study shows how people with a deficiency in generating a certain skeletal muscle protein shiver less and hold a higher core temperature in cold environments.
Among the many moving parts that scientists suspect may play a role in Alzheimer’s disease is one known as the glymphatic system, which is thought to flush waste chemicals from the brain. A new study has demonstrated how this recently discovered system might be kicked into gear via ultrasound, with the technique proving effective in stimulating its activity in patients as part of early human trials.
Artificial intelligence is starting to combine with smartphone technology in ways that could have profound impacts on the way we monitor health, from tracking blood volume changes in diabetics to detecting concussions by filming the eyes. Using the technology to spot melanoma in its early stages is another exciting possibility, and a new deep-learning system developed by Harvard and MIT scientists promises a new level of sophistication, by using a method commonly used by dermatologists known as the “ugly duckling” criteria.
