Boobs with signatures. Pretty interesting stuff.

Do tell me if you can trace the source of the quote to something other than an anime.

I guess this is important news too
Scientists Want To Test Lab-Grown Penises In Humans
A research team, led by Anthony Atala of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina, is planning to implant lab-grown penises onto human volunteers within the next five years. The pensies are designed to work for people who have lost it due to injury, illness, or a congenital condition.

These man-made penises will be grown from the patients' own cells from all the tissue types of the penis. The doctors would then coax the biopsied cells to multiply in a petri dish. 

The team previously made penises with this technique and transplanted them onto 12 male rabbits. Eight of the rabbits were able to ejaculated. Four fathered baby bunnies. 



Thanks +Billy Geiger for notified me that I wrote "Eight of the rabbits were about to ejaculated." instead of able to :p

While I`m still sceptical, I`m not going to shut my eyes for actual proof against genetically modified food.
Glyphosate Detected in Deformed Piglets

In April, a Danish farmer called for a ban on glyphosate. For three years he had used non-GMO soy feed for his pig herds, but when he ran out, he ordered two tons of GM soy feed.

His herdsman immediately told the farmer of diarrhea in the piglets and lack of appetite in the sows. He had not told the herdsman of the feed switch.

Worse, he began noticing an absurd amount of deformed piglets and reproductive problems in the sows.  Roundup is used on GMO soy shortly before it is used as pig feed.

But that’s not all – he brought 38 malformed piglets to a laboratory. In a research project by German and Egypt Veterinarian doctors using ELISA testing, differing levels of glyphosate (aka Roundup herbicide, by Monsanto) concentrations were discovered in piglets born from sows eating genetically modified soy feed.

That research became “Detection of Glyphosate in Malformed Piglets,” published in April, by open access journal Environmental & Analytical Toxicology.

All organs and tissues of the euthanized one-day old piglets contained glyphosate. Highest concentrations of glyphosate were found in the lungs, followed by the hearts. Lowest concentrations were found in muscle tissues.

They noticed that the rate of malformations increased to one out of every 260 piglets born of sow when feeds contained 0.87-1.13 ppm glyphosate during the first 40 days of pregnancy. If feed soy contained 0.25 ppm glyphosate, then one of 1,432 piglets was malformed.

They postulated that glyphosate was reaching the piglets through the placenta of their dams. They draw from a 2010 study citing glyphosate’s effects on embryonic and placental cells (in chickens), producing mitochondrial damage, necrosis and programmed cell death with doses far below those used in agricultural concentrations.

Pretty damn nice idea
Non-Stop Water By Turning Air Into Water While Biking
Kristof Retezár, an industrial design student at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, developed Fontus, a bike mounted device that uses solar power to collects the moisture in the air, condenses it and stores it as safe drinking water.

Fontus can harvest up to 0,5 l water in an hour´s time under the right climatic conditions while the bicycle is in motion. 

So how does it work?
The bike-mounted device that the bottle attaches to, has a small cooler at its centre called Peltier Element. This cooler is divided in two. Solar panels generate electricity to cool the upper part down, while the bottom side warms up. As air enters the bottom chamber of the bottle at high speed – when the bike is moving forwards – the hot side of the device is cooled down, which in turn cools the cold side further. When the air enters the top chamber it is stopped with ‘little walls’ that are perforated, and the water condenses. Droplets flow through a pope into the bottle, which can be turned into a vertical position and loosened. Any standard 500ml bottle can be used.

Fontus is still in the prototype stage. The design was recently a finalist for the 2014 James Dyson Award.

Yeah...this is how you are supposed to scare kids...
Of all the chemical reactions we've covered within the past few months, the one filmed below probaby takes the prize for coolest looking and possibly scariest. After the pile of reactants is lit, it begins to look like tentacles are crawling out of a portal to Hell.

Never even imagined
"I had this moment where I suddenly thought, ‘I wonder what a tear looks like up close?’”

Both tears of grief and joy are psychic tears, triggered by extreme emotions, whether positive or negative. Basal tears are released continuously in tiny quantities (on average, 0.75 to 1.1 grams over a 24-hour period) to keep the cornea lubricated. Reflex tears are secreted in response to an irritant, like dust, onion vapors or tear gas.

All tears contain a variety of biological substances (including oils, antibodies and enzymes) suspended in salt water, but as Fisher saw, tears from each of the different categories include distinct molecules as well. Emotional tears, for instance, have been found to contain protein-based hormones including the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller that is released when the body is under stress.

Scientists Have Developed a Material So Dark That You Can't See It
A British company has produced the darkest material ever; it is so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light. 

The material is made of carbon nanotubes, each tubes is 10,000 times thinner than a human hair that even light particles cannot get into them except from the gaps between. Once there, all but a tiny remnant of the light will bounce around until it is absorbed.

The material conducts heat seven and a half times more effectively than copper and has 10 times the tensile strength of steel ... It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.

"Many people think black is the absence of light. I totally disagree with that. Unless you are looking at a black hole, nobody has actually seen something which has no light," Stephen Westland, professor of colour science and technology at Leeds University said. "These new materials, they are pretty much as black as we can get, almost as close to a black hole as we could imagine."

OK Go does it again, with a great video full of visual illusions... (albeit with some missed Thatcher Illusion opportunities, which would have brought it to a whole new level!)

Nice atmosphere, can find a quiet spot with a good view on second floor or, when the weather is nice, dine outside, right in the middle of the beautiful Vecriga.

Overall had a very nice first experience dining in a sushi restaurant.
