My Journey With Cancer and the Hope for the Future

I would like to share a story.  A story about sadness, depression, anger, and frustration.  But most of all this is my personal story about triumphing over the death sentence of #cancer.  I hope this story will give others who went through and are going through hope for the future. My story started about 4 […]

Artificial Intelligence and Emotional Intelligence

People often forget that we designed computers not just based upon strictly rational but emotional purposes as well to help solve complex problems.  For example we would not have designed a calculator if there was no desire to solve mathematical issues.  Humans are emotionally tied to problem solving and thus it helps them formulate decisions.

This Giant Fireball Over Michigan Was Visible From Six States and Canada

The National Weather Service says that the most likely explanation for an object which sent out illumination and a sonic boom throughout southwest Michigan, five other states, and Canada on Tuesday night was the breakup of a meteor, WXYZ reported. The American Meteor Society collected at least 200 reports of the incident, which for around a second was so bright it lit parts of the Detroit region like it was daytime.

Two Experiments Show Fourth Spatial Dimension Effect

To the best of our knowledge, we humans can only experience this world in three spatial dimensions (plus one time dimension): up and down, left and right, and forward and backward. But in two physics labs, scientists have found a way to represent a fourth spatial dimension.

Sharon Terry: Science didn’t understand my kids’ rare disease until I decided to study it

Meet Sharon Terry, a former college chaplain and stay-at-home mom who took the medical research world by storm when her two young children were diagnosed with a rare disease known as pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE). In this knockout talk, Terry explains how she and her husband became citizen scientists, working midnight shifts at the lab to find the gene behind PXE and establishing mandates that require researchers to share biological samples and work together.

Doctors are gene editing inside the body of a living human for the first time

Brian Madeux’s life hasn’t been easy. So far, he’s had 26 operations to fix problems in everything from hernias to eyes. He has a rare disease called Hunter syndrome, which is caused by the lack of a gene that’s used to produce an enzyme that breaks down certain carbohydrates. As a result, the carbohydrates build up…

High-speed Quantum Memory for Photons

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a memory that can store photons. These quantum particles travel at the speed of light and are thus suitable for high-speed data transfer. The researchers were able to store them in an atomic vapor and read them

Gold could be used to treat cancer, scientists say

Tiny flecks of gold could be used in the fight against cancer, new research has suggested. Scientists at Edinburgh University have just completed a study which shows the precious metal increased the effectiveness of drugs used to treat lung cancer cells. Minute fragments, known as gold nanoparticles, were encased in a chemical device by the research team.
