scientists rejuvenate blood by reprogramming cells

Like it or not, your body gradually loses its capacity for producing blood as you age -- that's why immune deficiencies, leukemia and other blood conditions become more likely with time. Scientists may have found a way to turn back the clock, though. They've found a way to rejuvenate blood by reprogramming the stem cells that create it. The team effectively "resets" the stem cells by turning them into iPS cells, which can generate any kind of cell. When they once again form blood stem cells, it's as if they were brand new.

artist runs an electronic sound exhibit using his own blood

The effort involved in collecting the blood was as much a science experiment as the art itself. Vtol extracted just under 1.2 gallons of blood over the course of 18 months, and had to fill all but the very last sample with preservatives to prevent the fluid from going bad.As to why the artist would go to all this trouble? He describes it as a "symbolic act" where his life-giving fluid can power a device that's a figurative "extension of myself." It also parallels decades-old Russian philosophy and scientific concepts, where blood transfusion was seen as a metaphysical act -- you're literally sharing yourself with others. While it's safe to say that you won't be seeing any blood-powered electronics on store shelves, the installation is a clear (if slightly grotesque) reminder that your body

watch adele freak out when a mosquito starts ‘sucking her blood’ onstage

Almost four months after a rogue bat crashed her gig in Mexico City, Adele has been victimized by yet another member of the winged community: the mischievous mosquito.While performing in Brisbane, Australia last night (March 5), the Grammy winner was rudely interrupted by some blood-sucking miscreants, and she responded in a predictably hilarious fashion.“I’m sorry, I’m not Australian, I don’t like bugs!” Adele told the crowd after flailing her arms, screaming a string of expletives, and bolting across the stage. According to the 25 singer, the mosquito was “sucking my blood, it was sucking my blood!” And when she spotted even more of the pesky bugs, she insisted, “They’ve everywhere. They’re all trying to kill me!”Crazy mosquitos. They must be Beyoncé fans.

The new research, led by nanoengineering professor Shaochen Chen, addresses one of the biggest challenges in tissue engineering: creating lifelike tissues and organs with functioning vasculature -- networks of blood vessels that can transport blood, nutrients, waste and other biological materials -- and do so safely when implanted inside the body.Researchers from other labs have used different 3D printing technologies to create artificial blood vessels.

this synthesizer that runs on blood is the gothest thing you'll see all day

The need for blood is so great in this country that your blood is used, on average, within the first two days of your donation. That is an alarming and important statistic -- but even more alarming is this insane synthesizer installation some freaky artist in Slovenia just made that runs on batteries that converted 7 liters of his own blood into direct current voltage.Moscow-based artist Dmitriy Morozov, aka ::vtol::, drained himself of 4.5 liters over the course of a few months, diluted that blood with distilled water, glucose, sodium citrate and other substances, then loaded the final 7 liters into canisters designed to mimic 19th-century electrical experiments -- or, to our eyes, creepy chandeliers that might decorate a vampire's dusty mansion.Morozov drew the last bit of blood necessar

adele panics over a mosquito onstage: live

Adele provided some slapstick comedy with her concert in Brisbane, Australia, on Sunday night when an uninvited mosquito joined her onstage. The superstar singer freaked out in reaction to the little blood-sucker, swiping at the air and then actually running away from it in fear. "It was sucking my blood, it was sucking my blood!" she proclaimed to the audience, as a fan video shows. Later, she announced almost sadly she had hurt the insect before screaming that its friend had come to help him out and panicking amidst a supposed swarm of mosquitos that could not be seen from the audience. Naturally, the whole thing elicited a good laugh from the crowd.

russia's largest private commercial bank says hackers are faking its apparent ti

In a new press release, Alfa Bank, the largest private commercial bank in Russia, says it has no ties to the Trump Organization, following reports that the FBI is again investigating computer links between the two.According to Alfa Bank, the “false impression” of ties to the Trump Organization is the result of new cyber-attacks this February and March on the bank’s computers, which repeatedly bombarded the Trump Organization’s servers with DNS-requests from servers located in the United States.The bank’s representatives say the hackers are sending DNS reverse lookup requests designed to look like they’re coming from Alfa Bank.“Alfa Bank confirms that it appealed to U.S. law enforcement agencies for assistance in finding the people behind the cyber-attacks on its servers, which lead to the

bank staff threaten to go on strike tomorrow

Operations at public sector banks may be hit on Tuesday as most unions, under the aegis of the UFBU, have threatened to go on strike, pressing for various demands.Most banks, including SBI, PNB and BoB, have kept their customers informed about the same. The functioning of private banks is expected to be normal, but clearance of cheques may be delayed.The United Forum of Bank Unions is an umbrella body of nine unions, but two of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh affiliates — National Organisation of Bank Workers and National Organisation of Bank Officers — are not part of the strike.The conciliation meeting with the chief labour commissioner failed to break the logjam as the bank management, represented by the Indian Banks Association, did not agree to the demands, said All India Bank Employees’

new set-up for rabobank in africa to pool interests

Rabobank’s headquarters in Utrecht. Photo: Depositphotos.comDutch cooperative bank Rabo, which has a broad presence in the African agricultural sector, has joined new consortium Arise to pool the interests of its three partners in Africa, the Financieele Dagblad said on Thursday.Arise, which now has investments in more than 20 African countries with a total valuation of $660m, expects to expand its investment portfolio to €1bn.

big changes in store as ing reshuffles top executives

Financial services giant ING is to replace many of the top executives in its management and supervisory boards, the Financieele Dagblad said on Wednesday.At least six of ING’s senior managers will be affected and a number of lower-level managers will  also be replaced. ING issued a statement Tuesday night following a report by the FD earlier in the day.Part of the merry-go-round is due to the fact that some terms of office are about to expire, and part is due to the wishes of the people involved. On the other hand some of the changes are linked to the wish of ING chairman Ralph Hamers to attract fresh blood to the management, the paper said.The most noteworthy are the departures of the long-serving chief financial officer Patrick Flynn and the highest risk manager Wilfred Nagel. Many obser

broadly adopted transfusion practice may not benefit patients without traumatic

A study from investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) finds that a blood transfusion practice previously studied only in patients with severe traumatic injuries has been widely adopted within the hospital for surgical patients without traumatic injuries. Not only has this practice not been shown to benefit non-trauma patients, the MGH study suggests that it may be harmful to some, an observation that indicates the need for more research. "The strategy of giving patients requiring massive transfusion greater amounts of fresh frozen plasma, relative to the amount of red blood cells, has spilled over from trauma patients into unstudied patient populations," says Daniel Dante Yeh, MD, of the Division of Trauma, Emergency Surgery and Critical Care in the MGH Department of Surgery,

weezer’s ‘feels like summer’ is here to cure your winter angst

Spring isn't even here yet, and depending on what part of the country you're in, you're either melting in the sun or nursing frostbitten fingers. But Weezer, for one, have decided to "skip spring entirely and go straight to summer" with a new warm weather–ready jam.The alt-rock veterans are back with a track that's decidedly not old-school Weezer (look, if you've been holding your breath for another Pinkerton, now's the time to grab a brown paper bag). "Feels Like Summer" is an upbeat mix of stadium rock and EDM that's marked by layered synths, unexpected bass drops, and a punchy pop hook: "Yeah, it feels like summer / Yeah, it feels like summer to me." You may not feel ready to sing along just yet, but give it a few weeks.Hear the song below in an animated video that features a lot of tri
