Can Human’s Detect Earth’s Magnetic Fields?

A researcher in US has begun experiments to study human’s ability to detect the Earth’s magnetic fields. Geophysicist Joe Kirschvink from the California Institute of Technology based his hypothesis on how birds, insects, and some mammals seem to be able to use this sense to migrate and orient themselves with the world around them. Although Kirschvink has so far only presented the results of a very small trial involving 24 participants, he says that he has not only been able to identify it in humans for the first time, but that his results can be repeated and verified. Some scientists believe that the...

NASA To Advance Bioengineering In A Big Way

NASA, in partnership with the nonprofit Methuselah Foundation’s New Organ Alliance, has announced a new competition with a $500,000 prize to be divided among the first three teams that successfully create thick, metabolically functional human vascularized organ tissue in a controlled laboratory environment, in an effort to advance the field of bioengineering. Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington said “The outcome of this challenge has the potential to revolutionize healthcare on Earth, and could become part of an important set of tools used to minimize the negative effects of deep space on our future explorers.” The vascularized, thick-tissue...

Juror Dismissed From Trial After Victim’s Ghost Appears To Her

Just one day into the multi-week trial, an unnamed female juror was granted dismissal due to the woman’s claims of being visited by the deceased victim in the case. Justice Glen Poelman received a letter from the juror which stated “I have a gift of being an intuitive and medium, and although I did not believe this gift would impact my ability to provide judgment on this case based solely on the facts presented before me in court … I am wrong.” The Court of Queen’s Bench judge, read the contents of the letter into the court record, which offered this explanation;...

Trials For Gene Editing Experiments Seeking Approval

Next week, the University of Pennsylvania will seek approval for the first human trials of CRISPR, deploying the gene editing tool to treat certain types of cancer. CRISPR, shorthand for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, is a means of editing genomes with greater precision and efficiency than any other methods, by utilizing a naturally occurring bacterial defense mechanism that can be programmed to target specific segments of genetic code and edit the DNA. Though it holds major potential for preventing HIV infection, curing genetic diseases and even creating designer babies, the University of Pennsylvania believes it is ready to trial their CRISPR...

Journey To The Fourth Dimension Of The Brain

A new paper has been published in Cognitive Neurodynamics, which suggests that the brain may have an extra fourth dimension. Researchers Arturo Tozzi and James F. Peters illustrate what they were looking for and the conclusion they reached by outlining the following; “How do thoughts flow in the brain? Current advances in neuroscience emphasize the role of energetic landscapes, a sort of functional linens equipped with peaks, valleys and basins made of free-energy, where thoughts move, following erratic and/or constrained trajectories. This review, based on recent findings, introduces the concept of a spatial fourth dimension, where brain functions might take place, as...

We Will Hex You

A call to arms has been issued by coven leader Melanie Elizabeth Hexen, to have witches around the world join her in cursing tried rapist Brock Turner, to cause him to “become impotent” and “to know constant pain of pine needles in your guts.” As the very light verdict of 6 months jail time for a Stanford University student, who sexually assaulting an unconscious woman on a sidewalk came down, many cries for justice have gone out. Now, Hexen has made a Facebook event to allow others who wanted to take action to join in on the mass hex, and within 12...

Brain To Brain Communication Now A Reality

An incredible new breakthrough is being perfected, as researcher have now confirmed brain to brain communication is possible. Getting its start in 1998, Miguel Nicolelis, a Brazilian researcher working at Duke University, started experimenting with the brains of rats, measuring the electrical output of a single neuron at a time, and in recording the information, discovered that to make their bodies move. Then moving up to the evolutionary ladder, trained monkeys to play a video game using a joystick, and found that after having recorded the brain patterns that resulted from the movement, the team took the joystick away and the...

Dark Thirty Radio – June 9th, 2016

Tonight On Dark Thirty Radio  Is The Universe Just One Mass Graveyard? Although roughly 8.8 billion habitable, Earth-size planets exist in our galaxy, we have yet to discover any other trace of extra terrestrial beings and a new study suggests that that is because they have all since died. Co-authors Aditya Chopra and Charley Lineweaver of the Australian National University based their study on the assumption they had barely had time to evolve stating “We argue that early extinction could be the cosmic default for life in the universe,” and even go so far as to speculate that they never lived...

The X Files Has Done It Again

In a story line that came right out of the popular 90s drama, scientists now believe they may have solved a possible life-saving mystery DNA process, that could be used for cancer treatment and to fight antibiotic resistant bacteria. In a scene played out by Gillian Anderson, Agent Scully suspected aliens inserted branched DNA into her blood and now researchers at the University of Sheffield have used this theory to  reveal how branch DNA molecules are removed from the iconic double-helical structure – a process that is essential for all life forms. Though Agent Sully believed that DNA was added...

Warning Against AI Issued As New Human Genome Project Is Unveiled

A new warning has just been issued to those involved in the creation of artificial intelligence to consider the “profound implications” involved. Philosopher Nick Bostrom, points out that “intelligence is what has lifted humans to their current dominion over many aspects of nature, so we need to consider the safety measures needed now, so that we can plan for the eventuality of an intelligence superior to our own. He backs up his claim with the very strong case of human domination over the rest of the animal kingdom, stating “Chimpanzees are strong…pound for pound, a chimpanzee is about twice as strong as...

Researchers Look For Answers Into Walking Corpse Syndrome

New research into a mysterious and deadly mental illness called Cotard’s syndrome is underway to explain and eventually treat this disorder that causes the sufferer to have any of a number of delusions that range from believing they have no organs, blood or body parts to insisting they are actually dead. Commonly referred to as Walking Corpse Syndrome, this condition was first diagnosed in 1880 when a patient nicknamed Mademoiselle X, who claimed she was missing several body parts and  organs, including brain, chest, stomach and intestines was first described by French neurologist Jules Cotard. Mademoiselle X who believed she...
