Hek Waves775In August, it was about one year I started my „Hek Waves“ stream on G+. In the meantime, I had the opportunity to “circle up” with a considerable group of people sharing interesting, amazing, sometimes critical and – if it’s needed – also a bit odd and jolting content. But – and that’s the point – it has always been a valuable, friendly, enlightening and engaging contribution to my personal G+ stream. Therefore, I think, that the first G+ anniversary is a good opportunity to say thanks to some of the top influencers of my stream and the best way to say Thank You on G+ is sharing carefully selected circles to the public. So, let me start with a first ”Thank You Circle”:This circle contains a first selection of people sharing social, political or environmental content on G+. It’s a pretty colorfull circle, so it doen’t address a single social direction or opinion. But it always contains people with a valuable point of view. And that’s, what makes G+ so unique. #ThankYouCircle   #reshare   #sharingiscaring   +Shared Circles on G+ BTW: Special thanks to +Susanne Ramharter  and +Andrew Hartwell  for the foundations to this circle.2012-09-02 12:33:1513724521CC G+

Bioengineers look beyond patents
Synthetic-biology company pushes open-source models.

When DNA2.0, a company that synthesizes made-to-order genes, needed to conduct a few routine experiments using a fluorescent protein, its lawyers dug up more than 1,000 US patents covering their use. DNA2.0 decided to avoid the legal thicket by engineering several dozen fluorescent proteins from scratch. But the company, based in Menlo Park, California, was convinced that something had to change.

Last month, DNA2.0 deposited gene sequences encoding three of its fluorescent proteins into an open-access collection of recipes for DNA ‘parts’, molecular building blocks used to engineer organisms — often bacteria — to carry out specific functions. The company vows not to pursue its patent rights against anyone using the sequences.

Grow a tooth? : Stem-Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth Right In Your Mouth. The loss of a tooth is a minor deformity and a major pain. Although dental implants are available, the healing process can take months on end, and implants that fail to align with the ever-growing jawbone tend to fall out. If only adult teeth could be regenerated, right?

Dr. Jeremy Mao, the Edward V. Zegarelli Professor of Dental Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, has unveiled a growth factor-infused, three-dimensional scaffold with the potential to regenerate an anatomically correct tooth in just nine weeks from implantation. By using a procedure developed in the university's Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory, Dr. Mao can direct the body's own stem cells toward the scaffold, which is made of natural materials. Once the stem cells have colonized the scaffold, a tooth can... more »

This is how humans might look in 100,000 years

Nickolay Lamm collaborated with Dr. Alan Kwan, who has a PhD in Computational Genomics from Washington University, to hypothesize what we may look like in the future. The photo below is their calculation of what the our descendant's faces may evolve into over the next 100,000 years. The human face is proportioned to the 'golden ratio,' though it features unnervingly large eyes. There is green “eye shine” from the tapetum lucidum, and a more pronounced superciliary arch. A sideways blink of the reintroduced plica semilunaris seen in the light gray areas of the eyes, while miniature bone-conduction devices implanted above the ear work with the communications lenses on the eyes. The article has more details on their study.

I enjoyed reading this piece, which provides a new perspective on focus. For me, the bit I thought was the best advice regarding work was this:

"Don’t get attached... Attachment leads to fear. Fear leads to worry. Worry leads to chaos."

Amy Johnson

There's a lot of discussion at the moment about Amelia Earhart, but she wasn't the only pioneering female aviator of her day to die in mysterious circumstances.

Step forward Amy Johnson, a woman from my own home town of Hull, England, who in 1930 was the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia.

She also set several other notable flying records, but in 1941 crashed into the River Thames while on a secret wartime mission; her body was never recovered, and there are claims that she was shot down by an  RAF aircraft.

Bioengineers have made an artificial jellyfish using silicone and muscle cells from a rat’s heart. The synthetic creature, dubbed a medusoid, looks like a flower with eight petals. When placed in an electric field, it pulses and swims exactly like its living counterpart.

“Morphologically, we’ve built a jellyfish. Functionally, we’ve built a jellyfish. Genetically, this thing is a rat,” says Kit Parker, a biophysicist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the work. [...]

The team now plans to build a medusoid using human heart cells. The researchers have filed a patent to use their design, or something similar, as a platform for testing drugs. “You’ve got a heart drug?” says Parker. “You let me put it on my jellyfish, and I’ll tell you if it can improve the pumping.”

As professor Jonathan Vos Post predicted in his PhD Dissertation 1973-1977:

"In a breakthrough effort for computational biology, the world's first complete computer model of an organism has been completed, Stanford researchers reported last week in the journal Cell."

This is actually very cool and significant.

Energy-Saving Light Bulbs Can Fry Your Skin, Study Claims

Not cool at all!! =/

They discovered that healthy skin exposed to light from the environmentally-friendly globes - which use a quarter of the energy of ordinary bulbs to produce the same amount of light - experienced the same kind of damage that is found with ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
