HUMAN GENE EDITING: Chinese researchers researchers attempted to replace the gene responsible for a potentially fatal blood disorder called β-thalassaemia. They used a gene editing technique called CRISPR/Cas9 on non-viable single-cell human embryos. This technique allows researchers to snip and splice DNA at desired locations. Sadly, the experiment wasn’t very successful. Nature reports that of the 86 embryos researchers started with, only a fraction successfully had the problematic gene replaced with a normal copy. And the CRISPR/Cas9 approach also introduced new mutations into other, unintended places in the genome.
Rumours of germline modification prove true — and look set to reignite an ethical debate.

So cool - 43 dinosaur eggs discovered in South East China.
Workmen discovered a clutch of 43 dinosaur eggs while they were doing roadworks in China. Experts at the Heyuan Dinosaur Museum are now trying to determine the type of egg.

It's not widely broadcast in China or even it's not on the news.  If this is sth true, it will be surely a BIG news and just be notice, everything can be reverse-engineered in China.

A team of investigators from the University of Chicago Medical School say that honokiol, an ancient Chinese remedy derived from magnolia tree bark, may have potential in guarding against heart disease. They say it works by activating SIRT3, a protein in the sometimes controversial sirtuin family that has been linked to stress reduction and anti-aging effects. By injecting honokiol in mice, the scientists say that the remedy triggered a slate of events, from reducing the excessive growth of cardiac muscle cells to slowing fibrosis and a stiffening of the muscle cells. And it appeared to help reverse cardiac hypertrophy.

A natural compound derived from the bark of the magnolia tree, can protect the heart from hypertrophy, a thickening of cardiac muscle often caused by chronic high blood pressure that can lead to heart failure, researchers report in the April 14 issue of the online journal Nature Communications.

JILA's strontium lattice atomic clock is so accurate that it shouldn't be off more than a second in 15 billion years.
It wouldn't gain or lose a single second in 15 billion years.
