  3. Scientists in Japan now have permission to inject 'reprogrammed' stem cells into people with spinal-cord injuries. An upcoming trial will mark the first time that induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells have been used to treat spinal-cord injuries, after a committee at Japan’s health ministry approved the study on 18 February. IPS cells are created by inducing cells from body tissue to revert to an embryonic-like state, from which they can develop into other cell types. Hideyuki Okano, a stem-cell scientist at Keio University in Tokyo, will coax donor iPS cells into becoming neural precursor cells, which can develop into neurons and glial cells. His team will then inject two million of the precursor cells per patient into the site of spinal injury around 2–4 weeks after the injury occurs. . Okano has demonstrated that the procedure can regenerate neurons in monkeys with injured spinal cords and increase their mobility1. Okano’s team will carry out the experimental therapy in four people, monitoring them to ensure it is safe and effective before deciding whether to start a larger clinical trial with more participants. The first patient is expected to be treated in the second half of this year. IPS cells have been used in a handful of other clinical applications, including to treat age-related macular degeneration in 2014 and 2017, and Parkinson’s disease in 2018. A clinical trial in the United States is also testing a treatment for spinal-cord injuries using embryonic stem cells. The study has so far only led to minor improvements in a few patients, and has yet to demonstrate that it works in a controlled trial.https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00656-2
  4. The DNA of life on Earth naturally stores its information in just four key chemicals — guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine, commonly referred to as G, C, A and T, respectively. Now scientists have doubled this number of life’s building blocks, creating for the first time a synthetic, eight-letter genetic language that seems to store and transcribe information just like natural DNA. "Synthetic DNA seems to behave like the natural variety, suggesting that chemicals beyond nature’s four familiar bases could support life on Earth" https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00650-8

    Israel is going to the Moon

    If all goes well, an Israeli lander scheduled to launch tomorrow will become the first privately funded craft to land on the Moon. The trip will be short and sweet — a two-day study of magnetism in rocks. But it will pioneer the type of public-private partnership that seems set to kick off a new era of lunar exploration. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00652-6

    Because I sometimes behave like a dick and people misinterpret me very often.

    What’s your favorite video game?

    I liked Assassin's creed and Shadow of War/Mordor…..I adored the graphics of those games...and the simple gameplay The last assassin's creed imo lost the typical Assassin's creed gameplay. I remember I got addicted to the superb online gameplay of Warcraft(Frozen Throne). What's yours?
  9. Pesticides, pollution and climate change are all wiping out insects at an alarming rate – so much, that a new global review says they could vanish within a century, threatening a “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems”. The scientists are calling for an urgent overhaul of the agricultural industry, warning that “unless we change our ways of producing food, insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades”.https://www.channel4.com/news/insects-decline-threatens-catastrophic-collapse-of-natures-ecosystems The rate of insect extinction is eight times faster than that of mammals, birds and reptiles.https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/feb/10/plummeting-insect-numbers-threaten-collapse-of-nature

    What are you watching?

    I just watched 'Where hands touch'. It's a story of a bi-racial teen struggling for survival in Nazi Germany. It's well-acted but it's a 'heavy' movie.
  11. Those detectors which are often used in a Double Slit Experiment are measuring devices and collapse the superposition. This is the observer effect.
  12. HUP is about phenomena with momentum/position. That's not necessary about QM, Physics or science...Most of what we observe has momentum/position. Isn't entropic uncertainty a principle of a wave? I've read some papers that said how HUP is too basic, entropic uncertainty basically upgrades HUP. My view point is that HUP and observer effect is not necessary about physics or science I backed it up and, explained it. Another viewpoint is that HUP, indeterminism in QM, bell's theorem implies what we say about Nature.Physics doesn't say what/how Nature is, it implies what people say about Nature. Many people do think physics shows how Nature is, also the ones that write/wrote articles about it. You said HUP is a property of Nature...this is wrong, but you deny it? Of course they are not the same, I did not say they are. HUP is not a quantum phenomen.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1262781/ When you observe a donkey there can be an observer effect. And you can't measure its position and momentum precise at the same time....when the donkey is on the move.

    why we still belive in a god

    Very true.And parents are generally those people. To answer the OP: "why we still believe in a god?" => 'because we listen to our parents. '

    why we still belive in a god

    Most people probably believe in God because their parents/society....indoctrination. Sharing a believe system can increase groupccohesion so in many societies the believe in a God can be a/the norm to be part of or accepted in the group.
  15. This is wrong, you say many things like that. Physics implies what people say about Nature via exp. evidence. You should not make assumptions regarding a model showing a property of Nature. The observer effect is the theory that simply observing a situation or phenomenon necessarily changes that phenomenon. In many science fields people observe phenomena via measuring devices....so then it's rather a measurement effect.. you can discuss if a measurement is really an observer effect since you still have to observe/interpret the measurements. Those phenomna which are observed can be anything...including a donkey.

    Death is proof that God exists

    This is the best joke I've read in a while.
  17. That's true but people say things which are wrong, regarding the observer effect. So it's imo necessary to explain it. The observer effect affect the particles on the screen (it transforms energy). Do you deny this? Why do you think an entangled particle is measured? They measure superposition, not entanglement.

    What do you think about flatearthers?

    You have imo young earth creationists and bellow them, you have the flatearthers.(or the flearthers)

  22. The observer effect and HUP are basically 2 constrains on how we interpret/observe/study reality/nature. The measurement effect is only when you use measuring devices...the Observer effect in physics is mostly a measurement effect. You have several kinds of observer effects: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect The Hawthorne effect (also referred to as the observer effect) is a type of reactivity in which individuals (this can be any kind off lifeform) modify an aspect of their behavior in response to their awareness of being observed. This is for example why placebo controlled clinical trials are 'invented'. Or why people often have to hide themselves and use strong lenses when they film wildlife….it's to prevent wildlife from changing its behavior because it's observed. Another: In information technology, the observer effect is the impact on the behavior of a computer process caused by the act of observing the process while it is running. In physics, the observer effect is the theory that simply observing a situation or phenomenon necessarily changes that phenomenon. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. In the double slit experiment, the detectors and the screen are the instruments that alter the state of what they measure in some manner. (like transforming energy and destroying wave behavior.

    Interesting article concerning this topic: http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20180403-why-do-people-become-trolls-online-and-in-social-media "New research is revealing that trolls live inside all of us – but that there are ways to defeat them and build more cooperative digital societies."
