BAE has unveiled its designs for a number of wildly futuristic aircraft, including 3D printed drones, self-healing aircraft, and a transformer plane — a long-range aircraft capable of dividing into smaller ones upon arrival at its destination

Antibiotic resistant bacteria get wiped out by Manuka honey http://b4in.org/d5NP

The steadily worsening problem of antibiotic-resistant pathogens – cause for grave concern in the medical community – has researchers working overtime to discover solutions. But recent studies raise hope that raw honey may hold the key to combating MRSA and other drug-resistant strains.

In a test tube study conducted at Cardiff Metropolitan University and published in 2012 in Microbiology, researchers moved closer to understanding the mechanisms by which honey inhibits the formation of biofilms – difficult-to-treat communities of bacteria – and helps to clear chronic wounds.

Manuka honey quickly incapacitates infection-causing bacteria
The team found that Manuka honey produced in New Zealand and Australia has the ability to attack a common bacteria, S, pyogenes, which is often responsible for chronic infections, as well as the destruction of skin grafts. In fact, it took only modest concentrations of honey to kill 85 percent of the biofilms in a Petri dish – within two hours.

And, S. pyogenes isn’t the only pathogen susceptible to honey – numerous studies demonstrate that Manuka honey is antiviral, antifungal, and active against 80 different species of bacteria, including E. coli, P. aeruginosa and methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA.

In fact, the team noted that there are no instances of any type of honey-resistant bacteria on record.

Remarking that honey was both cheaper and safer than conventional drugs, they called for its use as a complementary therapy in conjunction with antibiotics.

Manuka honey not only treats bacterial infections – it can prevent them from developing in the first place

Researchers discovered that honey disrupts the interaction between S. pyogenes and a protein called fibronectin, which exists on the surface of damaged cells. The fibronectin acts as a fixative or glue, allowing bacteria to stick to wounds. Honey disrupts the bond of two different types of fibronectin, known as Sof and Sfbl.

Honey fights infection on multiple levels.

But honey is not just a “one-trick pony” when it comes to its tools for fighting infection and healing long-standing wounds. According to new research presented in 2014 at the 247th meeting of the American Chemical Society, honey also uses hydrogen peroxide, acidity and antioxidant flavonoids and polyphenols – such as caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid and ellagic acid – to inhibit bacteria.

In addition, it employs an osmotic effect, in which its high percentage of sugar draws water from bacterial cells, dehydrating and then killing them.

In order to form biofilms, bacteria use a communication system called quorum sensing; by interrupting this system, honey works as a sort of signal jammer, preventing biofilms from developing.
Honey accelerates wound repair plus so much more

The money in your hands, not theirs.
 
QUOTE: Mobile payment, also referred to as mobile money, mobile money transfer, and mobile wallet generally refer to payment services operated under financial regulation and performed from or via a mobile device. Instead of paying with cash, cheque, or credit cards, a consumer can use a mobile phone to pay for a wide range of services and digital or hard goods. Although the concept of using non-coin-based currency systems has a long history, it is only recently that the technology to support such systems has become widely available.

COMMENT: Essentially, anyone can set themselves up as a mobile banker.  They have the equipment to transfer what you pay them digitally to your phone. So, so, someone wants to have $100 on their phone to pay the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker.  They go to Harry down the road and give him $100. He puts $99.50 on your phone. You then carry the currency on your phone and pay everybody with it. Of course, other countries are set up for this. Not yet here. But I'm looking forward to it. :)

We can only hope that this innovation will force the parasitic banks out of business.
