Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Jack C Crawford67,189So you all might remember the Angels circle, right?This one has 440 cool guys (caveat emptor ... my preferences may differ from yours ... I like all of these gentlemen).So here's to the men!G+{I added myself just because ...}2013-07-10 20:10:59441913783
Gideon Rosenblatt28,713Gideon Rosenblatt's Top 100These are the folks Google tells me are my most relevant people (slightly modified to remove people who are relevant, but not active here on Google+).Looking through this list, I can tell you that these are great people full of interesting ideas and engagement. I'm not in the circle here, so I can objectively say that this group is a worthy addition to your circles. Enjoy this group of people - I know I do. They enrich my experience here. Without them, I probably wouldn't still be here today. P.S. - If you got a notification, that means you're in the circle. 2013-06-11 20:53:39100662467
Gideon Rosenblatt23,936My Top 150 Here are the 150 people that Google tells me are most relevant to me here on Google+. This is a really good group of people, full of interesting insights and a willingness to help others.I give you a hardy recommendation to add these folks to your circles here. Your stream will thank you for it later.:-)2013-02-22 00:43:3815037734
INTP0Since last time I shared the INTP circle, the followers circle grew from 66 to 192. So I'm sharing this circle again. If you do not want to be in the circle being shared, please let me know.This circle will be updated from time to time. If you'd like to be included in this circle, add INTP page. That way I can add you back. (A Google Plus page cannot add any user unless the user add the page first.)2012-11-17 09:56:49193202
Matthew J Price4,908Here it is again, my Accelerated Thinkers circle.  These futurists, authors, transhumanists, nerds, experts, pages, and all around thought leaders account for the vast majority of the good news I receive from G+.  Whatever I share that I didn't find in my RSS feed came from these ladies and gentlemen.If you followed nothing but these 70 people, you would have a pretty solid idea of what sort of craziness is coming down the pipe.I owe them a great debt for the thoughtfulness of their content curation and the added value of their voices. Thank you!I no longer spend any meaningful amount of time searching for new people to add to this circle.  If you know someone that belongs here please leave a comment nominating them (or yourself) or send me a message.  If you know someone with educated opinions about the future who posts future relevant thoughts and news the majority of the time, that's what this circle is about. #ScienceSunday   #Transhumanism   #Futurism   #AcceleratedChange  2012-10-22 00:32:2970317
John Deering808Atheist, free-thinker circle.These people have all sorts of interests and come from all walks of life, so are sure to liven up your stream, without filling it full of religious posts. If you need help with adding circles as a whole or picking a few, then please let me know.cheers #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #atheist   #athiet   #freethinker   #skeptic   #sceptic  2012-10-13 09:09:33500305
John Kellden10,222Social Curation, part 6: Social Curators v3"...what watch? Ten watch. Such much?"Subterranean Homesick Blues:+Bradley HorowitzPearltrees:+Oliver StarrSocial curation - an evolving set of buckets:1. Social media - which to me boils down to getting your story, your brand straight in this new networked, participatory, two-way market.2. Social business - including a large part of the startup scene, and also things like hackerspaces, 3D-printing, large companies struggling to adopt a new more social culture...3. Social signal - the whole analysis/symthesis thing, where we'll help each other understand what is going on, whether deeper learning, social learning, peer learning, informal learning, a quiet pervasive revolution happening as we speak.4. Social practices - where we share success stories, business cases , hangouts and experiential stuff, assessing what works and what doesnt.5. Social innovation and transformation - the difficult, complex, slightly less accessible corner - how global and local intersect, design thinking, narrative, sensemaking, semiosis, patterns, culture, transitions. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you all would find the odd post from me here. :)Social cocreation is da shiznitMy intention here is to honour two principles - one, the cocreated nature of this circle, since it is all about social curation. Two, if at all possible, provide an as rich and diverse signal as possible, for the benefit of all other Google plussers in need of our various social curation insights.Social curation: how we shape our content and how it shapes us in returnThere is quite probably as many different takes on social curation as there are people in this circle, and then some.Whither Dunbar? - What size circles?Keeping this circle under two hundred people thereabouts, might be a good size for new google plussers should they want to derive benefit from the gathered collective intelligence from this bunch of social curators.2012-09-26 07:52:4314620522

John Kellden9,492Google+ : Top EngagersLa creme de la cremeFifty people are selected by +John Fanavans :I have no idea how many people follow me. At some point, you decide that you will become a broadcasting service, and engage primarily with a core group. It happens to everyone. When you do, I suggest you reach out to new people like I do from time to time. Just to ensure you dont stagnate. And run public hangouts, they are hard, but they are worth it.He is not your guru. What he is though, is someone having thrown every conceivable angle and the kitchen sink on people, figuring out who are the top engagers:https://plus.google.com/u/0/118328436599489401972/posts/A8QsWpXLnXBHeuristics For The Win Win WinI've added a whole bunch of people, applying my own super seekrit heuristics, towards turning this into what is probably the best circle ever, never to be surpassed. Until next week that is, when I've cooked up a fresh batch of algorithms. But that's then, and this is now, here, enjoy:2012-08-08 07:35:1012933626

Chris Robinson24,784General Science Circle- Final UpdateLast August I started this General Science Database (http://goo.gl/tp06X), which could be uploaded into Google+ using the import contacts feature. Over the last year, the database has morphed into a shared circle and more recently into +Science on Google+: A Public Database. Due to the increasing overlap with the +Science on Google+: A Public Database, this will be the last time that I will be updating and sharing this circle.If you are a scientist, science teacher, or science writer, please feel free to add your profile/page to the +Science on Google+: A Public Database by filling out this form (http://goo.gl/yEg7M) and circling +Science on Google+: A Public Database. 2012-07-25 14:47:31300101339
Jeff Jockisch18,43275 Non-IdiotsI haven't done a circle share recently to let you know who I'm interacting with a lot.  This is half of my top 150 most relevant.  I couldn't stop at 50 or 100 -- too many good people here :)  Look for the other half of the 150 most relevant share as 75 Non-Ghosts2012-07-25 01:43:317521327
Dave Cole6,751I thought I would share my science circle, many of the names you have already seen and added to your own lists, I'm sure. There may be a few people that are new to you.2012-07-19 04:10:1723122320
Matthew J Price0Here is my most carefully curated circle of Acceleration Aware individuals.  These 50 people (plus myself) are the most outspoken about the real hot topics in futurism like Genetics Nanotechnology and AI + Robotics, but also about the philosophy, politics, economics and spirituality of the future.I carefully considered everyone on this list, plus many more people who are arguably more important in the transhumanist community, but are not active enough on G+ to contribute meaningfully.  Also, people who had a large majority of posts that were political in nature were selected against.If you want to see where the future is headed, these 50 are a good place to start.  If you feel like you belong in this circle, say so below!2012-07-09 03:01:005132610
John Kellden7,662Here's a few people who are not too shabby.I will spend a week in Greece with wife and kids. Have promised not to bring laptop, and not cheat too much with the G+ mobile thing either. This means you will have to wander aimlessly through the Google Plus Ghosttown while I'm working my tan, enjoying food and wine and sploshing about in the pool. But have no fear, quality content and even higher quality conversation is just a few clicks away, even if you only add a few of the people in the below circle. You all behave now, and talk more in a week.2012-06-18 09:24:0950043238
Gregory Esau9,648My Community Intelligence CircleI use the term community here pretty broadly, in that my community, the global community, and G+ all blur together in ways that make boundaries somewhat meaningless. Therefor, this is my Community Intelligence circle. Reading and engaging with these people will raise your intel (so to speak) of the world around us, the world of Google Plus, maybe your world, and the dots that connect them. For the many people who have circled me over the last few months (and thank you!!), these are the people that raise my IQ and EQ.2012-05-31 23:58:0014220210
Gideon Rosenblatt13,462Highly Relevant CircleI've gotten a bit out of the habit of sharing circles lately, and so thought I'd share this group of people that Google thinks are most relevant to me (in other words, the first 100 I get when I click on "Your circles" and sort by "Relevance"). Looking at this group, I'd have to say that Google does a very good job. Not perfect. There are people who I feel I interact with a lot here who are not in this top 100 of "most relevant" according to the Google relevance algorithm. The only tweaks I made were to take out a small handful of folks who aren't all that active on G+, but had high relevance because they are Gmail contacts I email a lot. So that's it. Enjoy this group. It's a great group of people. Very interesting content. Some are big Google Plussers, some not so big, but all are relevant - at least to me - and if they aren't already, I hope they will soon be for you as well.2012-05-29 23:29:32100702348
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 1 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #1 of the 2, and #2 is next. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #sharedcircles #entrepreneur +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:22:494491159

Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you?

Gregory Esau7,037My Thank You CirclePeople I want to Personally ThankI've come a long ways since I came here to Google Plus back in September, in this sometime crazy adventure of being part of a revolution of people to empower ourselves to create the world we want and need for a sustainable future, and to bring together the terrific type of people that can at the same time build the kinds of organizations we'll need for a sustainable future. It has been an extraordinary journey, that when i take these times to step back and breath, and to survey where we're all at in this journey, blows me away. It's unfolded in ways i could not have imagined six months ago.I am an ordinary person wanting to accomplish extraordinary things. Somehow a magic has happened, that has attracted these extraordinary people. My journey would be no where if not for these people, who in some way, have found ways to believe in me, have helped me, helped me grow, and helped in this amazing journey we share in this world of GooglePlus, and this future we think we can be part of shaping. The first two months of this year have shattered my expectations as to what really is possible with the right people. The next months of this year we're going to find ways to exceed those expectations again. We're going to create the kind of Smart Revolution that can reshape how we think of our role in the world, and the kind of Smart Organizations that reshapes the role of organizations in the world, and this tandem will be part of a cycle that will pull us towards a fantastic sustainable world. To close, thank you to all of you in this circle, and to all of you I've connected to in Google Plus who have been part of all this. Thank You2012-03-17 16:37:523824010

Just like you can direct your mind to think about anything, so as to promote purposeful, well-defined self-interested goals, so also can we direct our minds and sympathetic nervous systems to feel about anything.

Take for instance the thought experiment of a person pondering hi/er own murky, and somewhat cognitively dissonant and ambivalent, perceptions & impressions of life memories and environmental cues (present influences/temptations). That action is a rather effective and under-looked form of philosophy. It's a philosophy of meditation, introspection, imagination, deference of logic, life, self...a philosophy of keenness of learning & experimentation, self-awareness, self-actualization, and rigorous review of heuristic processes...just to name a few attributes of the practice.

This thought experiment describes advanced self-talk.

This thought experiment describes advanced self-talk.

Mentation vs. Emotion (Thinking/Mentation reasons; Emotion adjusts)

The above outlined description of deliberately [contrived, concocted, plotted, orchestrated] thinking pattern/exercise operates via cognitive mechanisms in our brain and nervous system.

Imagine the potential utility and biological & humanitarian advantages of optimizing our capacity and flow of positive emotional inspiration (directed psychological energy)!! And then consider the vastness and complexity of the emotional memes we share in our cultural experiences together on Earth!! Think of the potential for self & community investment in betterment. (actualization of unique potentials/modifying the self-environment relationship (sybiosis) to discover and breed more harmony (minimizing resistance/impedance of the flow of "capacitance" (of renewal/updates...relevance & belonging...serving purpose...functional/utilitarian roles, self-reinforcing, self-sustainable, integral value) throughout the communal sociosphere [1] [2])

Natural Conclusion:
There's definite value gained by implementing personal habits that foster...and compound with...and synergize with...*positive emotional selectivity of interaction.

And, as a final note, emotional feeling bidirectionally models the field of cognitive-biochemical hormonal/emotional interplay...and thus explains the actual physical health aspect of our emotional focalization. [2]

[3] Focalization is a term coined by the French narrative theorist Gerard Genette. It refers to the perspective through which a narrative is presented. For example, a narrative where all information presented reflects the subjective perception of a certain character is said to be internally focalized.___

It seems Google is sparing no expense when it comes to Life extension, and I believe they were talking Kurzweil's AI projects too.

"We'll get to a point about 15 years from now where we're adding more than a year every year to your life expectancy," he told the New York Times in early 2013.

And he believes much of what Kurzweil says is true with the right funding. "Give me large amounts of money to get the research to happen faster," says de Grey. He then points out that Google's Calico funds are virtually unlimited. "Kurzweil asked Larry [Page] and Sergey [Brin] how much he had to work with and they said to let him know when he runs out of money and they'll send more," de Grey said"___

So Bill Gates has this idea for a history class... Gates was watching a Learning Company DVD on "Big History" by David Christian. "Unlike the previous DVDs, 'Big History' did not confine itself to any particular topic, or even to a single academic discipline. Instead, it put forward a synthesis of history, biology, chemistry, astronomy and other disparate fields, which Christian wove together into nothing less than a unifying narrative of life on earth."

"I just loved it. It was very clarifying for me. I thought, God, everybody should watch this thing!"

"We didn't know when the last time was that somebody introduced a new course into high school. How does one go about it? What did the guy who liked biology -- who did he call and say, 'Hey, we should have biology in high school?'"

Unresponsive plane crashes off Jamaica

An unresponsive plane flying from Rochester, N.Y., to Naples, Fla., crashed off Jamaica, officials said.

The Socata TBM-700 was trailed by U.S. military fighter jets until it entered Cuban airspace, NORAD said.

A Jamaican official said the plane crashed about 14 miles off Jamaica and the military is sending aircraft and a dive team to investigate.

The plane was registered to Rochester, N.Y., real estate developer Larry Glazer.

Google's project to 'cure death,' Calico, announces $1.5 billion research center

The Google-backed life-extension company, Calico, announced today that it was partnering with Chicago-based pharmaceutical giant AbbVie to develop and bring to market new drugs targeting diseases associated with old age. Each partner has committed to providing $250 million in funding with the option to each add another $500 million to the project. The money will be used to create a new research center in San Francisco, where Calico will hire a team of researchers to discover new drugs and guide early development. AbbVie will focus more on the clinical trials, late-stage development, and bringing promising new drugs to market.

#Science   #EngineOfProsperity   #CulturalKnowledgeManagement  

SciTech #ScienceSunday Digest, 35/14.
Hypothesis generation by Watson, Knowledge Vault, nanoscale assembly line, nanoparticle gene regulators, yeasts produce opioids, optogenetics reverses memories, seamless material interfaces, tissue engineering, handheld DNA analysis, biomimic photodetector. 

1. Automatic Literature Mining for Novel Hypothesis Generation.
A research group in partnership with IBM’s Watson team developed a Knowledge Integration Toolkit that automatically mines all public medical literature (vastly more than a human could ever read) to generate predictions and novel hypotheses for the best direction to explore in a particular area https://www.bcm.edu/news/research/automated-reasoning-hypothesis-generation. As a proof-of-concept the tool successfully predicted new relationships and interactions for the well-known p53 protein, which were subsequently confirmed with laboratory experiments. Once mature and rolled-out it is hoped that this tool will greatly assist in accelerating new knowledge discovery. This would also be incredibly useful to the Chemputer example from last week, and pretty much every other field of course. Indeed, this was just one of a number of advances announced for Watson http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/44697.wss. 

2. The Knowledge Vault, by Google.
Google announced Knowledge Vault, a system that autonomously gathers and merges information from the web to generate a database of facts and associated confidence weightings http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22329832.700-googles-factchecking-bots-build-vast-knowledge-bank.html. This is an evolution of the company’s Knowledge Graph, representing yet another machine learning development, and is readable by both machines and humans. The system currently contains 1.6 billion facts, 271 million of which have a 90% confidence weighting and the growth of the system is automatic and on-going. Google isn’t alone in building such powerful knowledge resources of course, and the promise is for machines and virtual assistants to be better able to integrate with humans, improve our lives, and more easily know what we mean. In related news the Robo Brain system, a repository of knowledge designed to help robots better interact with humans and the real world, is now being accelerated and boosted via crowdsourcing and automatic learning http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2014/08/robo-brain-mines-internet-teach-robots. 

3. Nanoscale Assembly Line Steps Towards Atomically Precise Manufacturing.
A nanoscale molecular production line has been demonstrated in a microfludic chip system with channels “carpeted” in kinesin motor proteins https://www.ethz.ch/en/news-and-events/eth-news/news/2014/08/Nanoscale-assembly-line.html. First, a solution containing protein microtubules is fed into the chip along with ATP molecules; the kinesins binds the microtubules and use ATP to move them along the channel, while excess microtubule solution flows out of another tube as a second solution is introduced. The second solution introduces another molecule that selectively binds to the microtubes (a green molecular tag in this case), the kinesin carry the microtubules forwards, excess solution flows out as a third solution flows in with a molecule that selectively binds to the second and the kinesin conveyor belt carries the microtubule assembly onwards. This is a fascinating molecular assembly platform screaming out for further development; an arbitrary number of assembly stations can be included and a conveyor belt of switchable molecules under electronic control instead of ATP would also be good to see in future. 

4. Engineered Nanoparticles for Transcriptional Regulation of Gene Expression.
Gold nanoparticles have been engineered to function as artificial transcription factors able to regulate the expression of any gene of interest http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=37124.php. The platform, called NanoScript, works by attaching three different molecules to the gold nanoparticles via special linker molecules, (i) a nuclear localisation tag (peptide) that ensures the complex is taken inside the nucleus once it gets inside the cell, (ii) a polyamide molecule that functions as a DNA-binding domain and can be engineered each time to target a different sequence, and (iii) a synthetic peptide able to bind or block standard transcriptional machinery in the nucleus to inhibit or enhance gene expression. Although offering almost limitless cell regulation applications, the group wish to explore stem cell reprogramming, which is commonly performed with natural transcription factors that are vulnerable to cellular breakdown processes and suffer from low delivery efficiency - problems this technology is expected to overcome. In related news nanoparticles are becoming increasingly sophisticated http://phys.org/news/2014-08-multi-tasking-nanoparticle.html. 

5. Yeast Genetically Engineered to Produce Opioid Drugs.
Yeast has been genetically engineered with complex gene networks from both the opium poppy plant and a species of bacteria to enable the yeast to produce a range of different opioid drug molecules (replacing both biological and industrial processes); or it soon will be as just one final genetic engineering step remains to be hacked http://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/august/bio-poppies-painkillers-082414.html. This raises the promise of producing these important opioid drugs in large vats of broth fed only with sugar and no longer needing vast opium poppy plantations around the world - avoiding the risks of similar plantations being used for illegal heroin production. This also demonstrates the promise of GMO organisms in vastly simplifying supply chains and ease of production. Of course . . . should a single yeast cell be smuggled out alive from such a facility then anyone would be able to brew up these molecular products in their kitchen. In related news genetic engineering with CRISPR was successful in muscular dystrophy in mice http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/newsroom/news-releases/year-2014/august/correcting-muscular-dystrophy.html. 

6. Using Lasers and Optogenetics to Make Bad Memories Good and Vice Versa.
Optogenetics has been used to engineer mice whose memory neurons were sensitive to light, and laser light was subsequently used to switch and change memory associations so that bad experiences were remembered as good and good as bad http://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-talk/biomedical/devices/lasers-switch-memories-from-bad-to-good. This study showed how optogenetics can be used to target the brain’s plasticity and to rewire memory circuits in the brain. The work basically involved (i) subjecting mice to situations involving fear (small shocks) and pleasure (female mouse), (ii) labelling the memory neurons that were activated with the experience, (iii) entering mice into separate testing areas and activating those memories with laser pulses, (iv) entering mice into the same situations but activating the opposite memory (fear memory during pleasure situation and vice versa), (v) demonstrating that the mice exhibited altered memory of those situations; pleasure at the shocks, fear of the female. Pretty powerful stuff. 

7. Fabricating Atomically Seamless Two Dimensional Heterojunctions.
Atomically-thin semiconductor materials such as molybdenum diselenide and tungsten diselenide have been fabricated as discrete domains within single crystals with defect-free edge-to-edge crystalline perfection http://www.washington.edu/news/2014/08/26/scientists-craft-atomically-seamless-thinnest-possible-semiconductor-junctions/. The process starts with a vapour deposition technique that first creates triangles on a surface composed of one of the materials, and later introduces the second material that grows out from the edge of the triangles to form a continuous crystalline surface. Such surfaces with perfect atomically-thin domains that smoothly transition from one material to another, from one property to another, should have useful optoelectronic applications although these are yet to be demonstrated. 

8. Engineering and Regenerating Tissues.
First, fibroblast cells taken from an animal were reprogrammed into specialised thymus cells, then mixed with other thymus cell types, and transplanted back into the animal where the cells created a replacement organ that had the same structure, complexity, and function as a healthy adult thymus http://www.crm.ed.ac.uk/news/press/fully-functional-immune-organ-grown-mice-lab-created-cells. This included a renewed ability to produce T-cells, which are crucial for a healthy immune system. Second, new types of peptide-based anti-inflammatory nanoparticles embedded onto bioscaffolds were demonstrated to prevent inflammation at the site of injury and aided organ (bladder) repair and regeneration https://www.luriechildrens.org/en-us/news-events/Pages/tissue_regeneration_using_anti-inflammatory_nanomolecules_147.aspx. 

9. Engineering a Biomimetic Photodetector.
Drawing on lessons learned about how cephalopods detect light and modify skin colour, a basic metamaterial has been fabricated with standard CMOS techniques that comprises an aluminium grating that enables integrated on-chip light colour detection without costly additional dyes and colour filters http://news.rice.edu/2014/08/25/biomimetic-photodetector-sees-in-color/. The aluminium grating generates plasmonic interference that allows certain wavelengths of light through through while reflecting other wavelengths; tuning the structure and spacing of the grating allows different colours to be sent through and detected. Such technology should both simplify (cheaper) the fabrication of image sensors (and photovoltaics?) and boost the performance. 

10. Handheld, Battery-Powered, DNA Detection Device.
A handheld, battery-powered, real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) device has been developed and commercially launched http://www.otago.ac.nz/news/news/otago077848.html. With the device a user can load samples and, within the hour, diagnose with high accuracy the presence of specific DNA sequences. For example, in a remote location a user could determine whether a sick person had a particular virus or bacterial disease; knowing this within the hour provides information much quicker than usually possible and allows appropriate strategies and interventions to be enacted much quicker. Other applications are diverse and numerous and range from veterinary uses to personal genomics testing.

How to feed the cities of the future

At MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Caleb Harper’s CityFARM demonstrates the future of food production. He grows plants through aeroponics, a system that produces plants without soil. Plants are hooked up to servers and misting mechanisms. LEDs fill in for the sun and ladybugs (purchased on Amazon) occasionally make an appearance. Plants are periodically sprayed with a nutrient-rich mist that provides optimal pH balance. Light and temperatures are closely monitored. The environment nurtures plants that have twice the nutrient density of their conventional counterparts. Lettuce, bok choy, and tomatoes have already fed the scientists in the lab.

A public service reminder: Sleep (especially with good nutrition stockpiled in the cells) is an anti-aging powerhouse. Increasing sleep duration if you're deficient can reduce Cortisol, increase Collagen and Hyaluronic acid, improve the balance (location) of hydration throughout body tissues, organs and cells, strengthen the immune system, improve skin health, reduce overactive food cravings and appetite, etc.

I'm especially fascinated by the water balance. I have previously done some research about Hyaluronic acid and this is one of the functions it plays. I know this to be a very important bodily function...really...a part of 'late-stage' metabolism...including not just waste disposal but also cell repair.

It's all very complex but beautiful. Cheers to good health.

#ScienceSunday   #Science  

SciTech #ScienceSunday Digest, 34/14.
Re-routing past spinal damage, optical brain maps, neuromorphic atom switches, chemical printers, metamaterial superconductors, nanoporous fluid pumps, artificial cell & gene networks, 3D printing and cancer advances. 

1. Re-routing Motor Signals Around Spinal Damage.
In a fascinating proof-of-concept demonstration a “neural bridge” has been used in which the activity of one group of neurons is able to trigger the activity of neural networks in the central pattern generator regions of the locomotion centre in the lower spine http://www.kurzweilai.net/scientists-bypass-spinal-column-non-invasively-to-trigger-walking. The result of this was that a test subject hooked up to the device could raise their arm, generating signals to trigger a computer-controlled device that (i) magnetically (non-invasively) stimulated neurons in this locomotion centre and (ii) stimulated peripheral neurons in the foot, and so generate normal voluntary walking movements. Clinical studies are being planned and more convenient interfaces for people with spinal damage. In related news implanted mesh electrodes may power future advanced brain computer interfaces that empower this and a range of other applications http://spectrum.ieee.org/biomedical/bionics/how-to-catch-brain-waves-in-a-net. 

2. Optically Mapping the Structure and Activity of Brain Regions in Real Time.
A new technique combining optogenetics and two-photon microscopy allows brain regions to be mapped, and their activity recorded, in real time http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/new_mapping_approach_lets_scientists_zoom_in_and_out_as_the_brain_processes_sound. In the demonstration genetically engineered mice produced a neural protein that emitted light when calcium was present; calcium concentrations increase in neurons when they fire. A two-photon microscope could then observe the brains of live mice as they listened to sounds, seeing which neurons activated when and generating a map of the living auditory cortex. The work resolves new features of the auditory cortex, establishes spectral organisation, should assist with developing advanced cochlear implants, and establishes a tool for better mapping other brain circuits and activity. 

3. Self-Assembled Neuromorphic Chips with Atomic Switches.
A network of silver nanowires form a billion junctions per square centimeter that function as inorganic “atomic switch” synapses that generate memristor-like neuromorphic behaviours http://www.kurzweilai.net/neuromorphic-atomic-switch-networks-function-like-synapses-in-the-brain. This is another neuromorphic architecture entering and competing in the brain-like computing space in which the collective interactions between the inorganic synapses results in emergent properties. I hope the self-assembly fabrication process helps the group scale to much larger assemblies of artificial neurons and synapses. 

4. ChemPuters, ChemPrinters, and Chematica.
Nature had a good feature article (h/t +Koen De Paus) on the progress and development of machines able to take basic feedstocks and automatically synthesise any chemical on demand http://www.nature.com/news/organic-synthesis-the-robo-chemist-1.15661. I first covered the concept of a “chemputer” with this announcement http://www.theguardian.com/science/2012/jul/21/chemputer-that-prints-out-drugs out of the Lee Cronin lab over two years ago. Such machines would (i) access databases detailing how molecules can be built, (ii) feed this into an algorithm that can map out synthetic steps, and (iii) automatically carry out the steps with appropriate reagents. Progress is being made on each of these key areas, driving towards a vision that enables continuous flow, automated production, reduction of costs, increased efficiency, and orders of magnitude more chemical species to be researched. I can’t help but wonder if IBM might turn Watson to this field given the overlap with many similar big-data problems. 

5. Engineering Metamaterial Superconductors.
A relatively new approach in theoretical physics treats high-temperature superconductors as a type of metamaterial, the properties of which might be tweaked and engineered to produce variants that superconduct at higher temperatures https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/metamaterial-superconductor-raises-critical-temperature-of-zero-resistance-3da6c4657baa. Importantly the theory has been experimentally verified to some extent by using theoretical predictions to create a tin-based metamaterial that has a higher transition temperature than bulk elemental tin. This temperature increase was an admittedly tiny 4%; lets hope this new understanding leads to some significant breakthroughs and room temperature capabilities in future. 

6. Electrically Controlled Nanoporous Nanopump.
This nanopump work is quite elegant. Applying an electric potential to nanoporous gold induces an electrowetting phenomenon whereby the surface tension can be accurately controlled; the capillary forces experienced by water in contact with the nanoporous material reaches several hundred bar http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=37008.php. Rapidly switching the voltage can result in the nanoporous material acting like a pump with no moving parts, pushing and pulling on water as desired in amounts ranging from femto- to microliters and being ideal for microfluidic chip applications depending on the architecture and modules of material used. Other applications include oil and water separation and electrical flow valves that both direct and sense the flow of fluids. 

7. Artificial Cell Networks Mimic Protein Synthesis.
Etch multiple compartments into a microfluidic chip linked by capillary channels, into which are placed a collection of genes of interest, and through which flows cell extracts (everything except DNA), and you get a network of artificial “cells” and the establishment of DNA-protein regulatory networks without live cells http://wis-wander.weizmann.ac.il/artificial-cells-act-like-the-real-thing#.U_gcbPm1a7g. Certain genes can establish periodic cycling behaviour, and protein gradients are observed to arise across the network and have variable regulatory effects on the “genomes” of the artificial “cells” in a similar manner to real life. This is a subtle but powerful little tool that promises far more complex devices in future that might enable fast and flexible genomic programming and the production of arbitrary proteins and other molecules of interest; customisable and self-contained systems for advanced synthetic biology applications. 

8. 3D Printing Jet Turbine Blades.
GE’s additive manufacturing and 3D printing capabilities have taken a big step forward with the use of electron-beam guns that are 10 times more powerful than the typical lasers used for 3D printing via powder sintering http://3dprint.com/12262/ge-ebm-3d-printing/. The new approach allows for (i) much faster fabrication of parts, and (ii) parts that are up to four times thicker; it is competitive with standard casting techniques and can work with typically difficult materials such as titanium aluminide that has a lot of benefits. GE will be using the technology for the commercial production of jet engine turbine blades. And going off on a different tangent in the 3D printing space we have the application of 3D printing technology to agriculture for the automated production of poly-crops, which also has the potential to be revolutionary http://3dprint.com/12325/farmbot-3d-farming-printer/. 

9. Cancer: Metastatic Invasion, Immune Boost, and Human Virotherapy.
A trio of interesting cancer news this week. First, a micro-patterned surface produces a chip that has helped to elucidate how cancer cells transform and break off from a tumour of origin and subsequently invasively penetrate the surrounding tissue https://news.brown.edu/articles/2014/08/metastasis. Second, another approach on amplifying immune cells outside the body before reintroduction to the patient to fight cancer, but in this case the media material amplifies by 200-fold and also primes the cells against specific cancer antigens of interest http://phys.org/news/2014-08-immune-cells-cancer-fighting-boost-nanomaterials.html. Third, successful cancer viropathy treatment of a human patient in which a virus that was evolved to target cancer cells instead of healthy cells resulted in complete remission https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2014/08/an-example-of-a-targeted-viral-cancer-therapy.php but work to be done to expand the toolkit in order to evade other patient’s immune systems. 

10. Cheap, Flexible Body Sensors Made of Rubber & Graphene.
Rubber bands treated with graphene retain their pliable mechanical nature yet can function as sensitive sensors in which stretching and flexing results in measurable changes in the conductivity of the material https://www.surrey.ac.uk/features/could-elastic-bands-monitor-patients%E2%80%99-breathing. Applications would involve little rubber strips placed on, or in, a patient in order to accurately measure breathing, heart rate, and movement irregularities for example, and a mesh of bands on flexible surfaces such as beds and seats might lend themselves to additional applications.

'Tickling' your ear could be good for your heart

Lead researcher Dr Jennifer Clancy, of the University of Leeds' School of Biomedical Sciences, said: "The first positive effect we observed was increased variability in subjects' heartbeats. A healthy heart does not beat like a metronome. It is continually interacting with its environment—getting a little bit faster or a bit slower depending on the demands on it. An unhealthy heart is more like a machine constantly banging out the same beat. We found that when you stimulate this nerve you get about a 20% increase in heart rate variability."

"It is not that we have a short space of time, but that we waste much of it. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested. But when it is squandered in luxury and carelessness, when it is devoted to no good end, forced at last by the ultimate necessity we perceive that it has passed away before we were aware that it was passing. So it is—the life we receive is not short, but we make it so, nor do we have any lack of it, but are wasteful of it. Just as great and princely wealth is scattered in a moment when it comes into the hands of a bad owner, while wealth however limited, if it is entrusted to a good guardian, increases by use, so our life is amply long for him who orders it properly.
