    Scientists have tracked the lineages of cancer cells in the past by comparing shared mutations and other variations in their DNA blueprints. These methods...depend to a certain extent on there being enough naturally occurring mutations or other markers to accurately show relationships between cells. ... Instead of simply hoping that a cancer lineage contained enough lineage-specific markers to track, the researchers decided to use Chan’s method to add in markers themselves. “Basically, the idea is to engineer a cell that has a genomic scratchpad of DNA, that then can be ‘written’ on using CRISPR,” Weissman says. This ‘writing’ in the...

    Two years ago, while on a hospital gurney, my mother told me that she had to be cynical to be Black and survive in this country. With scent of antiseptic wafting in the air and alarms blaring out codes and directions, she took the hectic moment to explain that there was a part of you — or her, anyway — that would always want to feel safe here but expect to be disappointed. You would love to trust the law, even as the regularity of police brutality built up your reasons not to. And that someday you’d find a health...
  • Moderna Has a Reassuring Word About New COVID Variants - Its two-dose vaccine already protects against the new strains.

    As two new variants of the coronavirus from the United Kingdom and South Africa threaten to sweep the U.S., Moderna has released a comforting statement to suggest that their FDA approved two-dose vaccine already protects against the new strains.In trials, the Moderna vaccine did not lose any of its efficacy against the new strains, the company explains in its statement. They will test an additional booster shot of the vaccine to determine if that increases its effectiveness, and will launch preclinical studies of a vaccine booster candidate against the South African strain:"The two-dose regimen of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine at...

    Both Hank Arron and Larry King took the vaccines right before they passed. I am not saying it was the vaccine that killed them. Nevertheless, it should be noted.Here is a compile of Social Media accounts (see link below) that took the vaccine. This is from the peoeple that the MSM will never show you. Thought you may want to take a look at this long list. For the record, I have had vaccines in the past, and I am not an anti-vaccine. Although this does not automatically mean every vaccine is safe. This was rushed out in 9 months...

Dr Gilly Regev, who co-founded SaNOtize Research and Development Corp. based in Vancouver, Canada explained via telephone that “If you use it daily, I really believe you won’t be affected by Covid-19. We have shown in the clinical trials that the people who used it did not...

    Imagine changing the rules in the middle of the game, so that hits rather than runs, or first downs rather than touchdowns, determine the game winner. That is exactly what is happening with COVID reporting, just as many of us predicted. This confirms the lingering question of how much of COVID was about the actual virus versus a political club to hurt President Trump and drive him from office, quite successfully. As an interesting coincidence, the first case of the novel coronavirus arrived in the U.S. on the same day the House walked articles of impeachment to the Senate. The...

    It’s just the flu, bro. Germany now mandates medical grade masks as cloth masks are verboten. This is in addition to the new internment camps for Coronavirus quarantine deniers. Since the 1930s it seems that Germany has intensely cared about its citizens safety and what is right. - Coronavirus has “inflamed inequality around the world”. Looks like it will continue to be the justification for more socialism for years to come.

    At least 19 charred corpses have been discovered in Mexico near the US border in an area where drug cartels often clash, the Tamaulipas state prosecutor's office said. Police on Saturday found two burnt-out vehicles containing human remains on a country road near the town of Carmago. Preliminary investigations suggested the victims had been shot, then their bodies set alight. Because no bullet casings were found at the scene, police said it was possible the victims were killed in a different location. Autopsies are underway, but identification of the corpses will be complicated due to their condition, a source from...

    They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, but maybe bad luck does. Aumauinuuese Puni was suddenly struck by lightening while standing on a rooftop in April of 2020. He was on the roof of a building in Waikiki where he worked and doing a Facebook Live about the view of Diamond Head during some rainy weather. At the start of his livestream, he briefly mentions the possibility of being struck by lightning while standing out in the open. Shortly after, Puni found himself in that exact situation when lightening struck his body causing him to drop his phone....

    The revelation that the Capitol mob - covered in emblems of extremist groups - included off-duty law enforcement officers possibly assisted by working police is escalating pressure on sheriffs and police chiefs nationwide to root out staff with ties to white supremacist and far-right armed groups. Law enforcement leaders have faced criticism in the past for failing to police their own officers’ involvement with extremist groups. However, the selfie photos that off-duty officers took inside the Capitol during the violent siege, which left one police officer dead and dozens of others injured, were a wake-up call for many who have...
  • New COVID-19 variant can evade immunity, research suggests

    A new variant of COVID-19 that is inflicting heavy damage across Southern Africa can evade the immunity that is normally provided by previous infection, researchers are discovering. The research is the latest to raise questions about the dangers of the new variants that were detected in South Africa, Britain and Brazil in recent weeks. Scientists have already warned that the new variants are about 50 per cent more transmissible than earlier variants. It is still unclear whether the COVID-19 vaccines will be fully effective against the new variants, or whether the vaccines might need to be modified. Studies to be...

    A year after a global coalition of more than 11,000 scientists declared a climate emergency, Oregon State University (OSU) researchers who initiated the declaration have released an update that points to a handful of hopeful signs, but shares continued alarm regarding an overall lack of progress in addressing climate risks. “Young people in more than 3,500 locations around the world have organized to push for urgent action,” said Oregon State University’s William Ripple, who co-authored “The Climate Emergency: 2020 in Review,” published in Scientific American. “And the Black Lives Matter movement has elevated social injustice and equality to the top...

The article claims that the Coronavirus has killed many minks. The reality is the government in Denmark mass euthanized the mink population out of fear. US agency baffled by modern technology destroys computer mice to get rid of viruses. This seems unrelated to Coronavirus events but it isn’t.

    As COVID-19 continues to spread, researchers are looking for new and creative ways to help detect and manage cases. A team at the University of California San Diego is developing something to help do just that: a color-changing sticker. The sticker is a test strip and blister pack that can be placed on N95, surgical or cloth masks and detect SARS-CoV-2 in the user's breath or saliva, according to a news release from the university. As the person wearing the mask breathes, the test strip aims to detect protein-cleaving molecules produced from a COVID-19 infection. Once the user removes the...

    An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland, Ore., was once again the target of protesters on Saturday night, according to news reports and posts on social media.

Law enforcement officers from the Federal Protective Service were heard declaring an "unlawful assembly" around 10 p.m. local time and ordering the crowd to leave the area. The FPS is a unit of the Department of Homeland Security. "If you trespass on federal property with a weapon …...

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office announced the death and the investigation Saturday in a Facebook post, but gave few details. The county, which is in the greater Sacramento area, was “recently notified” of the person’s death, the police said.
