    Hi there,

    I have a question for you all.

    Sometime, after processing cord blood samples, the bc count is higher than the whole blood count.

    It happens with an average of 10% of the total samples

    I'm trying  to understand how this can be possible, because obviously it is impossible to create cells.

    I'm using a sepax device and after the count is made with an horiba device.

    Some people told me that it could be either a problem during the blood mix or bc mix, but even with a right mix the problem persists.

    Thank you for your help.


    Are the white blood cells dividing a possibility?

  2. There is star lifting that can work to extend the sun's lifetime. In combination with new material for fusion added, could keep sun going for far longer than it's natural span.


    Scale of engineering involved is main hurdle as physics is actually fairly well understood. Removing what is hard to fuse, adding what is easy.

    There's also options like man made Fusion and chemical energy that could keep us going as well.

    You get training on this if you are in a position where you might inadvertently leak. The sensible management here will likely involve in revocation of clearances, and quite possibly discharged/fired, if they catch the perpetrators 

    Yeah, that's the limit of what you can do though.

    This is the eighth modern accidental leak, I've either seen or heard of. All I can muster in response is a shrug.

  4. Seems like robots only replace cost of living/raising with those of maintenance/manufacture.

    Is a difference in that you can deliberately increase the size of your robotic labor force. Feed output of automation into increasing automation. That might well drive down profits. Depending on opportunity costs people would eventually start leaving the Market though, increasing profits again.

  5. Yeah, I guess I've seen too many times where there's a more probable explanation(something falls in while processing) or where the object in question looks to be from the same time period as when it was found.

    Personally I find pondering how our ancestors might have used their brains and scarce resources to still achieve their goals to be more interesting.

    Yes Endy this is what i also had forgotten to put in the video. But i have put it in the video desciption.

    The hands touch the snake or "filament" in 1 hyroglyp and then compaired to the second the hands touch the "bulb"

    In between the hands of both hyroglyp's there is nothing meaning: the invisible Radon gass in my theory.


    And it is a verry strange lotus flower considering that they carved it in one of the most hardest rocks (granite) and when they can make beautiful granite body statues with perfect symetrical faces. 🙃

    Drawn from the side like the people are.

    Some of these "Mysteries-of-the-Ancients", von Daniken loonies insist they are Crookes tubes!

    We're a very suggestble species...

    Does puzzle me what exactly the snake is supposed to be in that case though.

    Really deep diving requires special procedures and special equipment i.e. decompression chamber otherwise diver will have decompression sickness which might even end up with death. You should read entire articles:



    Hydrostatic pressure at sea level is 1 atm. 

    Approximately 2 atm at depth 10m.

    Approximately 3 atm at depth 20m.

    and so on, so on, every 10m.

    Whether diver will survive getting out of submarine which sunk depends on depth at which he/she get out of it and availability of decompression chamber waiting for them..

    Technically also depends on how long you spend at that pressure/depth.

    600 feet(183 meters) is supposed to be survivable though have to get back to atmospheric pressure fast.

    Ironic problem of having too much air in you, when escaping not having enough air.  Better off really waiting for the Rescue Sub in almost every case.

    Not silly.

    I'm having trouble figuring out if a diver needs to experience a compression time when exiting a pressure hull or if once the chamber is flooded they are good to go.

    Essentially I'm trying to figure out if a chamber must be first pressurized by gas to equalize ambient pressure outside pressure hull or can that stage be disregarded as it is for a torpedo.

    A torpedo isn't sensitive to forces in the same way a gas filled meat-sack is.

    So...I can't assume that what works for a torpedo tube works for a diver.

    But it makes sense that it would work except a bit of discomfort when the water pressure goes from 1atm to ambient pressure at depth.

    So can you suggest which method must be followed to exit a pressure hull? 

    Slow compression with gas then flood tube? Or just flood tube as only step?

    In exiting out a submarine's escape trunk, for example, you only need to flood the trunk.

    Forbes had a good article about it that may be of interest. Explains everything in good detail.


  10. TVR Exploring? Wish I knew the answer to your question but it is interesting the stuff they find down there.

    Do wonder if they ever take samples off camera.

    Thank you all who responded.

    I do not think it is just a question of risk.

    A question of acceptable risk maybe , but not absolute risk.

    There was a case a few years a go where a badly designed rear wheel bearing caused some rear wheels to fall off above (i think it was) 35 mph.

    There were a few resultant deaths, although many rear wheels did not detach.

    No one considered even one single death an acceptable risk. It just should not have happened.

    The manufacturer called in all the affected cars for urgent modification.


    Tesla in this case could have designed the car to be inoperable without someone properly in the driver's seat.

    I think it is BMW that has such a system if all passengers are not wearing their seat belts.

    Bypass devices exist for those as well.

    I do agree Musk rushed things in a unsafe manner. Shouldn't have been even suggested them as being self-driving until our pleasure-seeking selves could be safely out of the picture.


    Personal vehicle ownership is likely to go away IMO, so insurance issue will solve itself.

  12. Could possibly end up something like Venus too. With a day length about 117 times ours, it still maintains about the same temperature planet wide.

    I was thinking most of the ecology could be airborne, with low lying or anchored surface and underground species providing mineral resources.

  13. I think meant that their voyage was one of exploring and defining human and Federation values.

    Do you immediately assume hostile intent in a conflict if unable to communicate? Should you obey a law no matter the circumstances? Is noninterference always appropriate?

  14. Dog vs Cat ;)



    Do love my cat but have loved having dogs in the past.

    Lot tougher but cats can be trained to a degree. Provided she's not otherwise engaged, she will come when called and is trained to stay in the yard. Additionally she'll help out with any pests that want to freeload.
