Reawaken the Ovaries to Give Birth — Medical Frontiers-JAPAN Live & Programs

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, innovation

A treatment developed by a Japanese doctor and his team is helping women with premature menopause to give birth with their own eggs. Premature menopause is triggered by a malfunctioning of the ovaries and affects even those in their teens. The treatment involves activating dormant primordial follicles. We focus on the method, which has been described by TIME Magazine as a global breakthrough. We also introduce herbs that can alleviate symptoms such as those of menopause.

No knowledge, only intuition!

Article originally published on LINKtoLEADERS under the Portuguese title “Sem saber ler nem escrever!”

In the 80s, “with no knowledge, only intuition”, I discovered the world of computing. I believed computers could do everything, as if it were an electronic God. But when I asked the TIMEX Sinclair 1000 to draw the planet Saturn — I am fascinated by this planet, maybe because it has rings —, I only glimpse a strange message on the black and white TV:

Five INL innovations that are changing the world

Posted by in categories: energy, innovation

One of the biggest contributions in the near future could come from smaller, more compact reactors. Several microreactor designs are currently under development in the United States that will be smaller in size, more flexible to operate and versatile enough to provide energy to end users for a variety of services ranging from electricity production to water purification.

Engineers Turn a Laser Beam into a Stream of Liquid

Posted by in categories: energy, innovation

Circa 2017 I think with a light into matter laser we could create water but this idea could be a first step.

Lasers are one of the iconic breakthroughs of 20th century science. They produce coherent photons in tight beams of specific energy. They can transmit data, detect molecules, and burn through metal. The photons they produce also have significant momentum.

And that raises an interesting question. Is it possible to transfer this momentum to generate matter rays such as a liquid flow? Not until now.

With Stable Diffusion, you may never believe what you see online again

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

AI image generation is here in a big way. A newly released open source image synthesis model called Stable Diffusion allows anyone with a PC and a decent GPU to conjure up almost any visual reality they can imagine. It can imitate virtually any visual style, and if you feed it a descriptive phrase, the results appear on your screen like magic.

Some artists are delighted by the prospect, others aren’t happy about it, and society at large still seems largely unaware of the rapidly evolving tech revolution taking place through communities on Twitter, Discord, and Github. Image synthesis arguably brings implications as big as the invention of the camera—or perhaps the creation of visual art itself. Even our sense of history might be at stake, depending on how things shake out. Either way, Stable Diffusion is leading a new wave of deep learning creative tools that are poised to revolutionize the creation of visual media.

Out of thin air: new solar-powered invention creates hydrogen fuel from the atmosphere

Posted by in categories: innovation, sustainability

Well that’s a game changer.

Researchers have created a solar-powered device that produces hydrogen fuel directly from moisture in the air.

According to its inventors, the prototype produces hydrogen with greater than 99% purity and can work in air that is as dry as 4% relative humidity. The device would allow hydrogen to be produced without carbon emissions even in regions where water on land is scarce, they say.

MIT’s MOXIE experiment reliably produces oxygen on Mars

Posted by in categories: alien life, innovation

“It’s historic,” says MIT scientists.

In a significant breakthrough, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) lunchbox-sized machine has been producing oxygen from the Red Planet’s atmosphere for more than a year, giving hope of life on Mars one day.

Since April 2021, the MIT-led Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) successfully made oxygen from the Red Planet’s carbon-dioxide-rich atmosphere, according to a press release published by the institute on Wednesday.
