2.What a Gosh Heart is?
They take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.
Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor–a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it–and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.
Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this– first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts–for years.
The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place.
This scaffold of connective tissue–called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance–can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.
This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart–one that won’t be rejected–can be grown.
3. The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird strategic reconnaissance aircraft was so fast, the designers did not even consider evasive maneuvers; the pilot was simply instructed to accelerate and out-fly any threat, including missiles. – Source
As impressive as the Lockheed SR-71 was, it had a secret older brother (the A-12) which was even faster, lighter, and had a higher service ceiling
The first man to fly faster than the speed of sound, revived his feat on October 14 2012 in an F-15 Eagle, to celebrate the 65th anniversary of breaking the sound barrier. He was 89 years old. – Source
4. 85% of people use music to reduce their daily emotional stress.
To incorporate music into a busy life, try playing CDs in the car, or put the radio on when in the bath or shower. Take portable music with you when walking the dog, or put the stereo on instead of the TV.
Singing (or shouting) along can also be a great release of tension. Calming music before bedtime promotes peace and relaxation and helps to induce sleep.
5. According to a study by Harvard professor David Wise and two colleagues, 46.1% of Americans die with less than $10,000 in assets.
Don’t Dump That Old iPhone
Sell it. First generation iPhones that sold for $599 in 2007 are now collectables and if in mint condition are worth big bucks. The recent asking price on eBay for an 8GB iPhone in its original packaging was $10,000
This is a video of dances from old movies. Its so great. I LMAO with some of the outfits.
I think this is a wonderful Idea. No 1 reason, that it helps students from other countries learn to speak english and establish a great friendship and No 2, it allows the retired to keep up their computer skill and communicate with the young.
Obviously from this video, they develop quite the relationship with each other. I believe this is something that should be encouraged between countries as there are a lot of retired people that have time on their hands, where teachers and lecturers do not.
Another good reason is that these adults and children get a better understanding of each others cultures.
This is a must watch
Yes I have tried, only after a few Margarita’s though.
