CAN THE HUMAN CODE BE CRACKED, HACKED AND MANIPULATED

CAN THE HUMAN CODE BE CRACKED, HACKED AND MANIPULATED

By:  Alexander Stone

Not only is our metacapital economy affecting our global economy, it is also affecting our scientific economy, efforts and direction. Amidst the direction of earth or man, the longevity of man, the quest for the elixir of life, the fountain of youth  has long been sought, and now the question is, is it an elixir or have we had the power within our closed, human system all along. Moreover, can the human code be cracked, hacked and manipulated.

THE HOVERBOARD REALLY DOES EXIST

THE HOVERBOARD REALLY DOES EXIST

We all thought that the hover board in the 1989 fictional movie, “Back to the Future,” was a far stretch of imagination, until the brand name Lexus, actually created a similar hover board prototype.

This hoverboard levitates just a couple of inches off the ground. The company uses liquid nitrogen to power the super conductor. A super conductor is a material that can transfer energy without resistance. Continue reading THE HOVERBOARD REALLY DOES EXIST

SUPERVOLCANOES A NEW DISCOVERY

SUPERVOLCANOES  A NEW DISCOVERY

You always thought that all volcanoes erupt when enough pressure builds in the chamber until it can’t hold anymore, and it blows, right? Wrong! New studies find that supervolcanoes, volcanoes that have massive eruptions and usually cause global consequences, tend to not follow the normal characteristics of volcanoes.

NASA CONFIRMS FLOWING WATER ON MARS

NASA CONFIRMS FLOWING WATER ON MARS

By:  Rockwell Valentine

“When most people talk about water on Mars, they’re usually talking about ancient water or frozen water…Now we know there is more to the story…” (NASA). Ojha, one of the main scientist working on the project said. With the research of the NASA team, they have now proven that liquid water flows on the surface of Mars.

“Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on the Red Planet.” (NASA).

GLOBAL WARMING ‘HIATUS’ NEVER HAPPENED, SCIENTISTS SAY

GLOBAL WARMING ‘HIATUS’ NEVER HAPPENED, SCIENTISTS SAY

By:  Rockwell Valentine

Have you heard of the so called hiatus of global warming? No? That is because it never happened, but it was reported to have happened and to help to drive controversy. Yet, in truth, the global warming hiatus never happened.

A recent study that showed there was a hiatus in global warming has been accepted as a fact, but truly it is false. Stanford scientists prove this wrong with their own studies, and verify that it was false. Continue reading GLOBAL WARMING ‘HIATUS’ NEVER HAPPENED, SCIENTISTS SAY

Cloaked Nanoparticles Pave The Way For Targeted Drug Delivery

Cloaked Nanoparticles Pave Way For Targeted Drug Delivery

By:  Jennifer Hicks – Forbes Writer/Contributor

study from the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering shows how nanoparticles can be an effective delivery system for drugs in the treatment of cardiovascular disease and systemic bacterial infections.

In the study, engineers disguised nanoparticles as human platelets to see if they could increase the healing power of drug treatments by delivering those drugs to targeted areas in the body or organs affected by dangerous bacteria.

VIRTUAL REALITY IMMERSION HAS VIRTUALLY ARRIVED

VIRTUAL REALITY IMMERSION HAS VIRTUALLY ARRIVED

By: @MsMobileConverg

Hold onto your controller cuz it just got real.  Virtual reality gaming headsets have broken the barrier of VR gaming.

Immersive experience.

The new virtual reality headsets are almost beyond comprehension.  For the same reason the 60” plasma, in its day was engaging, the latest media engagement headset solution, stands to become the new norm.  The virtual reality headset by HTC, HTC re Vive is spec – tacular, yet that is not the most amazing aspect of this media system.  The most miraculous aspect of this media is the brilliant immersion of your environmental setting.

The headset forges the ability to “be there” ; whether in combat or walking atop a glacier, your mind is tricked into experiencing the reality of that moment and place.  The HTC re Vive is the only headset, as of the is writing that allows a “room”, as a physical aspect of the environment, to walk, to move, to see, to become an integral part of that visual.  Imagine a place, a space, a molecule where you have always to be, now know that you can be there.  One may now go where no man has gone before.

The #VR world will be in your home, make no mistake and will take you away. Disney knows it, Sleep Hollow knows it, the #ATAS knows it, and soon everyone will own the immersive experience.

A video to clarify the incredible immersion and to show examples of limitless environments.

 

This brand, with it’s room technology is to be in the marketplace by the holiday season.

 

 

THIS CHAINLESS E-BIKE IS ‘A CAR WITH TWO WHEELS’…

This Chainless E-Bike Is ‘A Car With Two Wheels,’ Says Korean Auto Maker

By:  Jennifer Hicks – Forbes Contributor – Tech Writer

A Korean automotive parts company, Mando, has created an electric bike, Mando Footloose IM, calling it an electric car with two wheels. The company has been making automative parts since 1962 and has now turned its attention to electric bikes (e-bikes) for “smart personal mobility.”

“In some ways, we are creating a whole new category of personal urban transport,” said TS Lee, Executive Director, Smart Personal Mobility Division, Mando. ”We want to create new ways for people to move around, particularly in urban locations that face a variety of transportation challenges–traffic, pollution, parking, fuel costs, etc. We believe the next generation of transportation solutions will need to rethink how technology works in a car or bike in order to deliver new levels of efficiency and convenience for the consumer.”

E-bikes have been in the making since the 1880s…

THE HOLOGRAPHIC LIFESTYLE

THE HOLOGRAPHIC LIFESTYLE

By: H+ Technology

The Hologram has been here, the holographic lifestyle is here, it is working, and it is available, and is called, Holus, by H+.  The only question now, is the holographic lifestyle uptake.  Holograms have been within our world for decades, but not as an available technology, people, education, and lifestyle ready…until now.  Holographic images have been presented by many companies, yet the company H +, has it’s finger on the pulse of the use.  The holographic lifestyle, as we know it, and have seen on countless commercials and films will be within our homes, our working environment and on our persons as wearable technology.  The hologram lifestyle is, now.

Holus turns technology and information into an interactive, social experience that brings people together. It converts flat 2D content into a 3D holographic experience.

Holus “unlocks the pixels” and provides a magical blend between the digital and real world. The SDK will be available for developers and will grant them the ability to render holographic objects and develop creative interactive applications.

Scientists Grow First Bio Rat Limb In Lab

Scientists Grow First Bio Rat Limb In Lab

By:  Jennifer Hicks

Scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston have grown the fist bio rat limb with veins and muscles.

According to the findings from MGH, the scientists believe this is one of the first steps towards developing bioartificial replacement limbs that could be used for human transplantation.

Harald Ott, MD, senior author of the findings and MGH Department of Surgery and the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, the biological nature of our limbs makes building a functional biological limb replacement a challenge.

“Limbs contain muscles, bone, cartilage, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and nerves – each of which has to be rebuilt and requires a specific supporting structure called the matrix,” said Ott.

So the key for transplantation is regeneration. The cells must regenerate all of the tissue surrounding the limb, and to do that you need something to build that on so the cells can grow into the right tissues surrounding and supporting that limb.

The Immediacy of Our Metamodern Digital Culture, the GMail undo!

The Immediacy of Our Metamodern Culture, the GMail undo!

In our metamodern digital culture, it’s good to know that the GMail “undo” exists.   Many ideas and actions rely upon another’s original action.  Sometimes we react in a favorable way, sometimes we over-react, sometime our fingers type faster than our minds, and sometimes we forget to include all that is necessary.
