Subject: researchers turn back the clock on old human muscle, restoring ability to repair & rebuild
Security: Public

"Our study shows that the ability of old human muscle to be maintained and repaired by muscle stem cells can be restored to youthful vigor given the right mix of biochemical signals,"

A study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, has identified critical biochemical pathways linked to the aging of human muscle. By manipulating these pathways, the researchers were able to turn back the clock on old human muscle, restoring its ability to repair and rebuild itself.

Subject: Physicists Demonstrate Quantum Memory with Matter Qubits
Security: Public

Teleportation chambers used to trap, entangle, and teleport ions.

For the first time, scientists have successfully operated a quantum gate between two remote particles of matter, marking an important step toward the development of a quantum computer. In previous experiments, researchers have used photons, which are difficult to store. Using matter qubits enables the researchers to store the obtained quantum information, opening up new possibilities for the generation of remote networks of entangled qubits.

Subject: Scientists create first electronic quantum processor <-- :-)
Security: Public

A team led by Yale University researchers has created the first rudimentary solid-state quantum processor, taking another step toward the ultimate dream of building a quantum computer.
They also used the two-qubit superconducting chip to successfully run elementary algorithms, such as a simple search, demonstrating quantum information processing with a solid-state device for the first time. Their findings will appear in Nature's advanced online publication June 28.

Subject: Hi-tech 'Trojan horse' can kill cancer cells: researchers
Security: Public

Australian researchers are set to begin human trials of a tiny nano-cell that acts as a "Trojan horse" against cancer cells, a breakthrough they say may curb the need for debilitating chemotherapy.

The technology could eventually allow cancer sufferers to receive treatment as outpatients, rather than being hospitalised for lengthy bouts of chemotherapy, according to the researchers.

Subject: Is Everything Made of Mini Black Holes?
Security: Public

One might posit that the black hole smoothly turns into something approximating a large and unstable elementary particle, which then continues to evaporate (decay) into familiar stationary states


In trying to understand how gravity behaves on the quantum scale, physicists have developed a model that has an interesting implication: mini black holes could be everywhere, and all particles might be made of various forms of black holes.

Brain's problem-solving function at work when we daydream

A new University of British Columbia study finds that our brains are much more active when we daydream than previously thought.




Meditation increases brain gray matter

Push-ups, crunches, gyms, personal trainers -- people have many strategies for building bigger muscles and stronger bones. But what can one do to build a bigger brain? Meditate.

Subject: Major Breakthrough In Generating Safer, Therapeutic Stem Cells From Adult Cells
Security: Public

A group of researchers at the Scripps Research Institute and other institutions have achieved a breakthrough in converting adult cells all the way back to the most primitive embryonic-like cells without using the dangerous genetic manipulations associated with previous methods.

IMO this is quite the common sense breakthrough the community has been anticipating/hoping-for. I look forward to the developments this technique brings to light. Much thanks to those whose talent and hard work brought about this discovery/technique.

Subject: New Step Towards Quantum Computers
Security: Public

physicists have now succeeded in aligning electron spin, bringing it to a controlled "waver" and reading it out. The electron spin can also be realigned as required at any time using optical pulses.

The intrinsic rotation of electrons – the "spin" – is a promising property for future electronics devices. If use as an information carrier were possible, the processing power of electronic components would suddenly increase to a multiple of the present capacity.

Subject: COOL TECH! - Nanoball Batteries Could Charge Electric Cars in 5 Minutes
Security: Public

Researchers at MIT have designed a new battery that can recharge devices about 100 times faster than conventional lithium ion batteries. The design could lead to electric car batteries that charge in 5 minutes (compared with 8 hours in today's electric cars) and cell phone batteries that charge in just 10 seconds.


IMO very useful indeedy
