Well, it's time for me to depart. We're heading off to live in China for an indeterminate amount of time and – as far as I'm aware – we won't be able to access G+ with any reliability. Therefore, I have decided to hand ownership of the group over to my brother, +Dustin La Mont

Thank you to #MexicoCity for the mind-blowing reception, and to the lovely girl who gave me this sombrero! #whatifmovie

WHAAAAAAAAT?! This is insane.
Skin Cell Gun
When treating a burn victim, it can take weeks to generate an autologous skin graft when one is necessary to treat the affected areas. However, a team of researchers at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine have developed a new treatment back in 2011, which can reduce this time to just a few days. The researchers harvest healthy skin from the patient and use a “skin gun” to spray the patient’s own skin stem cells onto the wound. Following application of the autologous cells, the researchers used an artificial vascular system to further speed up the healing process by nourishing the stem cells.

Case
Two-year-old Zed Merrick was left with second degree burns across his chest and shoulder after knocking a cup of tea off a kitchen worktop.
But doctors carried out a "revolutionary" new treatment where they made a solution from Zed's own skin cells and sprayed it over his burns.
And just four months after the life-changing treatment Zed's burns have completely disappeared - leaving him scar free.
Zed will not need to have skin grafts and has no scar tissue.

Where does a cat get cozy in Hobbiton? Right here by the fireplace in the Green Dragon!

This was taken while on the +Hobbiton Movie Set  ...  they just started a new thing where they offer a HUGE medieval feast to the last tour of the day - it's really amazing food and the location can't be beat! It's even better than you can imagine!
