Scientists have reversed ageing in skin cells taken from people who are 80-97 years old. The trick was to turn the skin cells into stem cells and then back into skin cells. http://leahcanscience.com/2015/06/15/ageing-reversed-old-skin-cells/

The Center for Data Innovation has released a new study of Wikipedia edits, revealing which regions of the United States contribute more Wikipedia editing than others. A map of the results is so striking that it shows several "data deserts," shown as white patches on the map. These areas were found to have lower population density, higher median age, and less broadband Internet access. The map is color-coded at the county level. Many thanks to Travis Korte for freely sharing his findings.

In theory, a superabsorbing ring or system and a Superradiance phenomenon can be combined with recent technology to create a device that draws in light ultra-efficiently. This could be revolutionary for devices ranging from digital cameras to solar cells.

But there’s a problem: the advantage of this quantum effect is strongest when the atoms are already 50% charged – and then the system would rather release its energy back as light than absorb more. Discover how researchers and theorists at Oxford University solve this problem.

My Crowdfunding squid lab has 8 more days to raise money for our research on squid immune regulation of symbiosis! We're preparing to send out "squid adoption cards" for those who donated $20 to name a squid. Here's one of our tiny baby squid in a 3mL cuvette! There are plenty of juveniles left to name if anyone is interested.
More information about our research can be found here, along with the crowdfunding opportunity:
