    Engineered immune cells battle acute leukaemia : Nature News & Comment

    I very much hope there comes a day when we look back at chemotherapy and radiation therapy as archaic and barbaric, perhaps as we view the 1800's practice of amputation for gun shot wound now.

    Shorter-winged swallows evolve around highways | Life | Science News

    Swallows evolved shorter wingspans in a matter of 30 years.


    Over the last 30 years, the number of cliff swallows killed along roads in southwestern Nebraska has plunged, and the birds’ average wing length has shrunk, researchers report March 18 in Current Biology.

    Nature Blows My Mind! This 80,000-Year-Old Aspen Grove Clones Itself : TreeHugger

    The oldest living organism in the world is 80,000 years old, and clones itself. Known as Pando, and nicknamed The Trembling Giant, this organism is a single grove of Quaking Aspen trees in Utah.
    Simply put, it is essentially one massive root system that began life an estimated 80,000 years ago. The root system currently has somewhere around 47,000 stems that create the grove of trees that keep the root system going.

    An Energy Coup for Japan: ‘Flammable Ice’ | NYTimes

    Japan said Tuesday that it had extracted gas from offshore deposits of methane hydrate — sometimes called “flammable ice” — a breakthrough that officials and experts said could be a step toward tapping a promising but still little-understood energy source.

    The gas, whose extraction from the undersea hydrate reservoir was thought to be a world first, could provide an alternative source of energy to known oil and gas reserves.

    Octopuses Get One Chance at Love [Video] | Octopus Chronicles, Scientific American Blog Network

    This aquarium keeps giant Pacific octopuses (Enteroctopus dofleini)—one male and one female—for about a year. Once the two are mature and ready to mate, the aquarium prepares a special blind date for them—usually on Valentine’s Day. This year, keepers introduced the female Squirt to the male Rain in front of a live audience (with some red roses and hearts to set the mood).

    The gel that stops bleeding instantly

    "In all of our tests we found we were able to immediately stop bleeding,” says Landolina. “Your skin has this thing called the extracellular matrix,” he explains. “It’s kind of a mesh of molecules and sugars and protein that holds your cells in place.” Landolina synthesises his own extracellular matrix (ECM) using plant polymers, which can form a liquid when broken up into pieces. He says, “So it goes into the wound and the pieces of the synthetic ECM in the gel will recognise the pieces of the real ECM in the wound and they’ll link together. It will re-assemble into something that looks like, feels like and acts like skin."
