Scientists at Cornell University have found an innovative way to preventing and treating cancer. By attaching a cancer-killing protein called Trail to nanoparticles, the researchers have created a "sticky" particle which can latch onto white blood cells. From there they can travel round the body in the bloodstream killing any tumour cells which might break off from the main body of an existing tumour - preventing its spread.

Prof King told the BBC: "The data shows a dramatic effect: it's not a slight change in the number of cancer cells... The results are quite remarkable actually, in human blood and in mice. After two hours of blood flow, they [the tumour cells] have literally disintegrated."

A "potentially revolutionary" device to help women during difficult births has come from an unlikely source - a car mechanic from Argentina, who based the idea on a party trick. http://bbc.in/186UQcA 

The inventor, Jorge Odon, describes the early tests as: "Two men in the toilet, with my daughters' toys, taking them out of a jar, with Vaseline. Our colleagues could see us and obviously they thought we were a little bit mad."

I often wonder why most seafood in supermarkets are imported. I am a seafood fan but not of the frozen kind.
The seafood industry is a great example of the delete-and-replace maneuvers that define the outsourced American economy.

Great read. This is why I always have second thoughts about buying seafood. But then my appetite defies the perils of free trade as described here.

A CPR for a laptop! I thought it was ridiculous but it worked for my 6-year old T61. Thank you very much.
