  • A thin membrane discovered in the human brain

    A thin membrane has been discovered in the human brain, which is part of the waste disposal system. It constitutes a fourth membrane located above the innermost membrane, called the subarachnoid lymphatic-like membrane (SLYM). It is extremely thin, with a width of only a few cells or, in places, a single cell.



    Treating a baby’s congenital heart disease

    Researchers have successfully treated a baby’s congenital heart disease using stem cells directly injected into his heart, after a first major surgery. This new type of treatment would avoid repeat surgeries, because the injected stem cells can grow with the heart.



    Low frequency ultrasound and human cells senescence

    Low frequency ultrasound, less than 100kHz, causes senescent cells of monkeys and human cells to resume their division and stop the secretion of factors that promote senescence. Some cells show signs of senescence after about 15 divisions, but with the ultrasound treatment they reached 24 divisions with no signs of abnormality.



    A new branch of the tree of life

    Biologists have revealed a completely new branch of the tree of life, the provora. These microscopic predators are identified according to their type of predation: Nebulidia which engulf their prey entirely before digesting it, and Nibbleridia, those which generally prefer to attack with a thorn and nibble piece by piece.



    A network of brain areas common to brain disorders

    Analyzes have revealed a network of brain areas common to depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, substance abuse, as well as bipolar and obsessive-compulsive disorders. The posterior regions of the brain inhibit the anterior regions. In case of lesions of the first mentioned, the second become hyperactive, which can lead to the development of mental illness.



    A self-cleaning process of the atmosphere

    The widespread presence of nitrous acid (HONO) in the distant Atlantic troposphere returns nitrogen oxides (NOx) and HONO to the marine atmosphere. This process of self-cleaning the atmosphere is essential for removing gaseous pollutants and regulating greenhouse gases such as methane from the atmosphere.



    Tiny antennae-like organelles’ role

    Tiny antennae-like organelles appear to play a crucial role in tracking time. These cilia can be found in many of our own cells. In mice, their elimination results in the loss of the ability to change behavior quickly in an appropriate time frame. Altered perception and misjudgment of time are found in many mental and neurological disorders.

    (77aH*) : 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, 2022, we are in 77 aH, (meanning 77 after Hiroshima).
    It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing “monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
