The scientists discovered that the glue which holds cells together is regulated by biological microprocessors called microRNAs. When everything is working normally the microRNAs instruct the cells to stop dividing when they have replicated sufficiently. They do this by triggering production of a protein called PLEKHA7 which breaks the cell bonds. But in cancer that process does not work. Normal cells touch each other and form junctions then they shut down proliferation. 

Scientists discovered they could switch on cancer in cells by removing the microRNAs from cells and preventing them from producing the protein. MicroRNAs are small molecules which can be delivered directly to cells or tumours so an injection to increase levels could switch off disease.
Scientists have turned cancerous cells back to normal by switching back on the process which stops normal cells from replicating too quickly

fUCI concept bike flips the bird at racing rules
Ever wonder why you don't see things like recumbents in the Tour de France? Well, it's because of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), which is the world governing body for bicycle racing. Among other things, the UCI places unwavering restrictions on the design of racing bikes. While this is intended to keep some racers from having an unfair advantage, many people feel that it also holds back the evolution of bikes designed for non-racers. That's why Specialized’s Creative Director, Robert Egger, created the fUCI concept bike. It's a speed bike designed without UCI restrictions in mind ... and we'll let you figure out what the F in its name stands for.

You knew they'd eventually jump on to this. Flash is mature enough to deliver a solid gaming experience and Google has already successfully made Youtube a go-to destination for passive entertainment. It will be interesting to see how well it does.

Handpresso Wild - portable espresso maker

Just because you're out and about doesn't mean you have to forgo that all important espresso moment. This outstanding invention allows you to easily brew up an excellent shot of the perfect espresso whether you're in the park or half way up a mountain in the wilderness and in need of a shot. Super light-weight and portable, the Handpresso Wild prepares a tasty espresso with a perfect crema using a patented high pressure extraction system.

You simply pump up the handle to 16 bar (a gauge ensures you hit the perfect pressure every time), add water from your thermos to the mini reservoir, slip in a coffee pod, and fire off your espresso. It's a quite brilliant invention that's been beautifully executed and designed. 

With the Handpresso Wild hybrid, you may vary the coffee experience as inspiration and weather dictates. Either you choose ground espresso coffee and become a barista or you insert the E.S.E. adapter and enjoy the E.S.E. pods' ease of use. Not only is the Wild hybrid versatile, but the quality is still there!
