I will be posting news about science here. Discussions and comments about science and relevant biotech topics are also welcome here. Everything from dinosaurs to DNA... Science that is provable and derived from strict adherence to observable method and testing...

This is one of three graphics that explain what happens if humans continue to push sharks toward extinction. Annihilating an apex predator will have major downstream consequences to marine ecosystems.

It makes you wonder how much research and development is really done by the big oil companies with the subsidies we pay them every year when a 16 year old girl from Turkey is figuring out such vital pieces of the energy puzzle...

I am sure she is brilliant and but how dumb are the corporate career scientists then?

Or do the oil companies and their capitalism cronies really squelch new and innovative ideas? We need a new social idea that helps us rid ourselves of these corporate hogs who purposefully neglect energy ideas and vital scientific discovery...

@RexRed,
I say we take the subsidies we pay to oil companies and give it to 16 year old girls from Turkey...

Japanese telecom giant NTT’s recent experiments with quantum entanglement have reached a true milestone in the understanding of this phenomenon, potentially leading to new super-fast communications technologies. A team led by Takahiro Inagaki at the NTT Basic Research Laboratories in Kanagawa has managed to keep two particles entangled over a distance of 300 kilometers through fiber optic cable.

Sea cucumber has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years, but they are relatively obscure in the U.S. This may be soon changing, however, as evidence mounts that sea cucumber extracts can kill cancer cells while stimulating the immune system.

This latest study, published in PLoS One, has confirmed just how powerful frondoside A truly is. Researchers found it to kill 95% of ER+ breast cancer cells, 95% of liver cancer cells, 90% of melanoma cells, and 85-88% of three different types of lung cancer.

As Evers reports:

“But the benefits of this compound don’t just stop at directly inducing programmed cell death (apoptosis). It also inhibits angiogenesis (the ability of tumors to grow new blood vessels to get their food) and stops cancer metastasizing by impeding cell migration and invasion. Even more intriguing is the ability of frondoside A to activate our immune system’s natural killer cells to attack cancer cells. This has been shown for breast cancer in particular but may also apply to all cancers, because it involves the immune system and not cancer cells directly. This may partially explain why frondoside A was so effective at shrinking lung tumors in mice that it rivaled chemo drugs in performance.”
