  • Sound waves converts stem cells into bone cells

    Thanks to 10 MHz sound waves, mesenchymal stem cells differentiate into bone cells. This simple device could be easily scaled up to process large numbers of cells simultaneously, which is vital for efficient tissue engineering.



    Effective gene therapy for a severe immune deficiency

    Many children born with a life-threatening immune disorder, severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) from adenosine deaminase deficiency (ADA) have lived healthy lives for more than ten years. This is thanks to effective gene therapy with long-lasting effects and free from severe adverse effects, with promises for the treatment of many other deadly immune disorders.



    Giant bacterium discovered in a Caribbean swamp

    A giant bacterium has just been discovered in a Caribbean swamp. It measures up to 2cm and has a unique biology, with a large genome. Furthermore, its genetic material is compartmentalized and very close to the membrane, which challenges traditional concepts of bacterial cells.



    Our life may flash before our eyes upon death

    For roughly 30 seconds before and after a man’s heart stops beating, his brain shows increased activity in parts associated with memory recall, meditation, and dreaming. Scientists suggest the man’s brain may have been replaying memories from throughout his life, similar to the ones reported in near-death experiences”.



    Meat consumption correlated with greater life expectancy

    Compared to energy consumption from carbohydrate crops, total meat consumption is correlated with greater life expectancy, independently of the competing effects of total calorie intake, economic affluence, urban advantage, and obesity.

    (76aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
    This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
    Thus, since August 6, 2021, we are in 76 aH, (meanning 76 after Hiroshima).
    It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing “monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
