Izmantojot plastinācijas un krionikas kombināciju, izstrādāta metode, kas ātri un precīzi saglabā pilnu smadzeņu struktūru līdz atsevišķu sinapšu izšķirtspējai. Izstrādne ieguvusi BPF Small Mammal Prize balvu un projekts tiek ievirzīts nākamajā stadijā.

Focus now shifts to the final Large Mammal phase of the contest which requires an intact pig brain to be preserved with similar fidelity in a manner that could be directly adapted to terminal patients in a hospital setting. [..] This result directly answers a main skeptical and scientific criticism against cryonics – that it does not provably preserve the delicate synaptic circuitry of the brain. As such, this research sets the stage for renewed interest within the scientific community, and offers a potential challenge to medical researchers to develop a human surgical procedure based on these successful animal experiments.

Kārtējo reizi akūti izjūtu diennakts stundu nepietiekamību (vai iespēju uz laiku pavairot sevi vairākos eksemplāros).

BTW, vietējie bio/neiro cilvēki ([info]panacea?) – kā jūs tulkotu “dendritic spines”? “Sariņi”? “Dzelksnīši”? “Izaugumi”? Ja arī eksistē akceptēts latviskais tulkojums, tad līdz šim neesmu tādu atradis. Pats pagaidām sliecos uz “izaugumiem”.

Tā laikam ir stadija, kad skatoties Friends rodas jautājums - kā rodas tādi draugi? I mean, I wish I had such friends. Cik ļoti nozēlojami tas ir?

Šodien lasīts Facebook:

Ideja jaunam supervaronim: Quality Assurance Man.

Maskēts varonis, kurš nakts aizsegā vai, īpašos gadījumos, gaišas dienas laikā, ierodas pie grēkojušiem programmatūras, it sevišķi bibliotēku, autoriem, nesakot ne vārda, salauž tiem ceļus ar beisbola nūju un atstāj kartiņu ar bug reportu un fiksa termiņu.

QA Man, the hero we deserve. A silent static analyzer. A PEBCAK debugger. A watchful code coverer. A stringent regression testing automator. A code knight.

Also, FOAAS, natribu.org variants XXI gs. tehnoloģiskajām un kulturālajām vajadzībām.

Pēdējā laikā lasu telefonā, labs atklājums, kad kindle nojaukusies. Bet esmu sākusi arī lasīt Īstas grāmatas, un tikko piedzīvoju pusotras sekundes apmulsumu, kad iebakstot labajā pusē,lapaspuse nepāršķiras!

Pilnībā norobežojos no prof. Kalviņa teiktā (ja pārstāstīts korekti) un kā zinātnieks zinātniekam prasu pierādījumus, kas ņemtu vērā pašreizējos datus.

09:03 pm - Some bits and pieces of The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss
‘’People will think that because genes play a role in something, they determine everything. We see, again and again, people saying, “It’s all genetic. I can’t do anything about it.” That’s nonsense. To say that something has a genetic component does not make it unchangeable.’’

“Cellulite is fat. Nothing special, neither a disease nor a unique female problem without solutions. It can be removed.’’
‘’Marketers have conditioned women to believe that they need specific programs and diets “for women.” This is an example of capitalism at its worst: creating false need and confusion.’’

‘’But what is this all-important “Harajuku Moment”? It’s an epiphany that turns a nice-to-have into a must-have. There is no point in getting started until it happens.’’

‘’Tracking anything is better than tracking nothing.’’

‘’Simple: logic fails. If you were to summarize the last 100 years of behavioral psychology in two words, that would be the takeaway.’’

‘’Think of them as insurance against the weaknesses of human nature—your weaknesses, my weaknesses, our weaknesses: 1. Make it conscious. 2. Make it a game. 3. Make it competitive. 4. Make it small and temporary.’’

‘’If you are hungry, you’re not eating enough protein and legumes at each meal.’’

‘’If you could only do one movement for the rest of your life, do the kettlebell swing.’’

‘’The crucial principle is to lift heavy but not hard.’’

“Based on all of the literature I’ve reviewed, the phytoestrogens in soy are dangerous for adults and, to a greater extent, children, even when used in moderation. Studies have demonstrated that just 30 grams of soy per day (about two tablespoons) for 90 days can disrupt thyroid function, and that’s in Japanese subjects. The Swiss Federal Health Service equated 100 milligrams of isoflavones (phytoestrogens) to a single birth control pill in terms of estrogenic impact. How many birth control pills are you inadvertently eating each day? FOOD TOTAL ISOFLAVONES(IN 100 G SERVING) Instant soy beverage 109.51 mg Raw soybeans (Japanese) 118.51 mg (in less than half a cup) Fried tofu 48.35 mg (7–8 small pieces) Tempeh 43.52 mg (in less than two-thirds of a cup) Common infant soy formula.’’

“So, how can you do it without soy? Answer: Either extensive whole foods, which requires prep time, or powdered protein, which requires budget. The whole-food options will be covered in the case studies, though you’ll see some soy products creep in. For supplementation, the most consistently recommended protein powders among vegan athletes are: Sun Warrior Chocolate Brown Rice Protein (rice protein) Pure Advantage Pea Protein Isolate (pea protein) Nitro Fusion Plant Fusion (rice, pea, and artichoke protein) I have also confirmed each of these as non-vomit-inducing when blended with 1–2 tablespoons of almond butter and either ice water, almond milk, or coconut milk.”

“ In the course of researching and interviewing for this book, I encountered dozens of former vegan women and would-be mothers who had miscarriage after miscarriage until they reintroduced animal products into their diets, after which they were able to become pregnant in a matter of weeks.”

Virtual cookie if you read them all! ^^

06:29 pm - Pirmais raksts pēc ilga laika nu jau no Kurzemes vējainiem krastiem.
Tiešām kur tie laiki kad es te, kaut ko esmu ieskribelējis, mūžība pagājusi domas un atziņas mainijušās, pats ar laikam nobriedušāks palicis. Nu tā nu mēs ar Kokons dzīvojamies pa savu mežu uz Slīteres zilo kalnu kraujas kur, ja sanāk naktī pamosties var saredzēt kuģus braucam pa horizontu, spilktām gaismām izgaismoti. Pavasaros un rudeņos vētras šūpo mūsu priedes un egles. Un ziemas naktīs tik tumšs, ka ārā izejot savu roku nevari saredzēt, neskaitot tās reizes, kad mēness kā liela bumba ceļo pār koku galotnēm, izgaismojot stirnas un citus zvērus, kas pa pagalmu dažreiz ganās. Miers un klusums šajā vietā mīt, kad kaimiņi aiz meža kautko nezāģē vai neklausās rādio, ka sajūta, ka tepat pagalmā tas notiek. Sēņu un ogu lērums, ko var lasīt un pieēsties pilns un dārzs un visi lauku darbi. Viss jautrākais ir ziemā, kad viens ceļš, kas ved kalnā apledo, bet otrs ceļšs, kas iet gar pļavu un caur mežu tiek aizputināts tā, ka es ar savu VW variant braucot knapi izbraucu vai arī dažreiz neizbraucu, uzsēžos ar vēderu vai ierokos. Bet Dievs ir labs un viņš gādā, ka mašīna(bez kuras te neiztikt) iet un kalpo labi, tik dažreiz japieremontē ritošā, jo tā te nobirst un nolietojas ātri. Es te biki sācis savu pilngraudu kviešu maizi ar ieraugu un sēkliņām cept un apgreidojis savu ēst gatavošanas prasmi un tagad dažādos pasākumos piedavajam gatavot citiem savus vegānos ēdienus, citi saka, ka garšīgi sanāk, bet ,lai par to spriež katrs pats. Liels sapnis būtu nokārtot un iegūt mājražotāju statusu ,lai to ko gatavojam varētu ari pārdot un vēl kādu naudiņu nopelnīt. Turiet īkšķus, lai izdotos. Uz tikšanos draugi, vel kādos manu memuāru tekstos :)
