The existance of aliens is now very probable

Aliens are now very probable, and not very far away!

The discovery of a bacterium able to grow from arsenic disrupts a fundamental aspect of science.

NASA had said preparing a big announcement for the evening which "will affect the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life." The space agency has finally been surpassed on Thursday evening, she would have discovered a new form of life in a lake in California. You can follow within hours the news conference from NASA and live video.

These bacteria can grow from arsenic and incorporate the violent natural poison in his DNA.

For researchers, this is "a resounding discovery that overturns the search for life on Earth and beyond." This bacterium is not only capable of surviving the arsenic, but it also incorporates elements in its own DNA and cells.

A redefinition of the fundamentals of science!

Mono lake - California (Aerial view)
This discovery is redefining what science considers the basic elements necessary for the development of life: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.

It all started with a discussion between three scientists a few years ago  on the possibility that different life forms can exist on Earth. The three scientists have published in 2009 a research speculating that arsenic can substitute for phosphorus (which are close on the periodic table of elements) in early forms of life on Earth.

One of the scientists, Felisa Wolfe-Simon, then left to experiment in Mono Lake, California, which has high levels of salt and arsenic, where she has collected sediment. "She took this sediment, put in a bottle containing essentially very little arsenic and phosphorus," says Dr. Anbar.

The GFAJ-1 bacteria grow on arsenic
Ultimately, a bacterium that has survived, known as strain GFAJ-1. "This is a known bacterium , says Dr. Anbar. But nobody had yet realized that she could do this". "What is new here is that arsenic is used as a building block for an entire different biology." said Prof. Anbar, co-author of the work.

"We had this idea that life requires six elements without exception (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur)," he said. "Now it turns out that there might well be an exception," he adds.

The aliens and medical possibilities

Beyond life on Earth, the fact that bacteria can grow in arsenic might suggest that life forms are possible on other planets yet deemed unlivable.

Whatever the scope of this work, Dr. Anbar recognizes that the discovery of extraterrestrial life is still far from the agenda.

Felisa Wolfe-Simon in Mono lake taking samples from a sediment
But the surprising properties of the bacteria found in Mono Lake, which may have an interest in medicine, laying the groundwork for new thinking. And more: "Maybe there are other exceptions to which we should think." Said Professor Anbar

"We're very influenced by life as we know it and it is therefore difficult to consider something else. But how far can we go? At what point can life be different and still exist?" , he asked.

Serious Swine Flu Alert in Mexico and the US

Swine influenza, which has already killed at least 20 people in Mexico, moving towards the north of the continent and concerned American medical experts. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are about 800 suspected cases in Mexico, including 60 deaths. Health authorities worldwide have triggered the alert, Friday 24 April, after the reporting of several hundred human cases of swine influenza in Mexico - which has launched a "massive campaign" vaccination facing a sixty suspicious deaths - and nearly a dozen cases in the United States.

In Mexico, 20 deaths were officially attributed to the virus of swine influenza and other quarantine of suspicious deaths are being reviewed, like those of 943 patients who could be contagious, announced Minister of Health. WHO reported on Friday, 57 suspicious deaths and confirmed that at least 18 of them have been caused by the flu in recent weeks. The authorities in Mexico have announced a campaign of vaccination and advised the people of the capital to avoid the subway and not kiss or shake hands in greeting. All schools and public and private universities have been closed in the capital and in the State of Mexico (Center). The airport of the capital remains open, but medical teams are in place to handle passengers.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon, and the mayor of Mexico City, Marcelo Ebrard, have suspended their activities to devote himself to the consideration of the emergency situation with the health authorities. In Mexico, the first signs of the epidemic were detected in late March, peaking in April. Patients are usually young adults not suffering from any known diseases previously, "said a spokeswoman for WHO. The organization (WHO), fears that a new strain of swine influenza leads to a pandemic.

Swine Flu

Pigs can serve as a "melting pot" to give birth to a new highly virulent strain for humans.

8 Cases in the USA

In the United States, the White House said take the warning seriously and President Barack Obama was informed of the situation, according to a spokesman. "We have set up emergency operations centers," said the spokesman for the U.S. Centers for control and disease prevention (CDC). The concerns are even more serious that this novel virus is transmitted from man to man and consists of several strains: "This is the first time we see an avian strain, two strains of pigs and a human strain," a explained the spokesperson. Friday, U.S. health authorities have diagnosed a new human case of swine flu on a child living in California (West). "Yesterday, we reported on a total of seven cases in the United States," said Dr. Richard Bresser, CDC, during a telephone press conference. "Today we have an additional case in California, bringing the total to eight for the United States," he said.

Laboratories in Canada and the U.S. confirmed that it was "a new influenza virus," said the Ministry of Health of Mexico. The concern of medical experts is justified by the fact that pigs can serve as a "melting pot" to give birth to a new highly virulent strain for humans by combining genetic material of swine influenza and avian influenza. "There is a risk, even small appearances of the virus pandemic potential," notes the Center for prevention and control of diseases on its website.

Grafted face and hands by Pr. Lantieri

A new medical fact makes the buzz!

The 2 teams have simultaneously managed a face transplant and a graft hands on a man burned in an accident. Conducted this weekend, the operation has mobilized 40 people for nearly 30 hours. This is the 6th of the face transplant in the world and the 4th practiced in France, but this is the first time ever that doctors reach transplanting parts of the face at the same time as another part of the body .

Conducted 4th to 5th April 2009 at the Henri Mondor hospital in Créteil, France by 2 teams: one led by Pr Lantiéri and Pr Méningaud for face transplant and the other by Pr Dumontier for grafting of hands.

The recipient is a man of 30 years. The aftermath of the accident he suffered in 2004 from severe burns that prevented any social life, "says Public Assistance.

The whole upper part of the face over the lips, scalp, nose, ears, forehead and upper and lower eyelids, was re-implanted on the patient, says the AP-HP. Grafting of the eyelids is also presented as a world first. Surgeons have reconnected nerves, tendons, arteries and veins. This is the major issue raised by Professor Lantieri during a press conference. Moreover, the patient is doing well, it will be kept in intensive care, the time he wakes up.

Battery made up with viruses for mobile phones

While Boston Power has tripled the life of Li-Ion batteries, a team of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has developed a new type of anode and cathode to be perfectly adapted to the market for hybrid cars and mobile phones. For the first time, researchers have modified a virus (that attacks a bacterium and not human) to build the cathode of a Lithium-Ion battery from carbon nanotubes. The process is simple: the assemble viruses around the molecule of iron phosphate and cling to the carbon nanotubes to create a special conductive cathode.
This new battery can store up to three times more energy than the best battery up to the moment, but only 100 cycles of charge-discharge against 300 for a battery and traditional Sonata 1000 for Boston Power. However, their production is much cheaper and cleaner: the materials are not toxic and the process requires no solvent.

A few months ago, other researchers from MIT had already being at headlines by recharging a mobile battery in 10 seconds. The team drawing on a battery lithium iron phosphate.

Both MIT teams hopes that a few years next to produce batteries that recharge in a few seconds to several minutes (depending on capacity), that will provide power 3 times, and bear more cycle charge-discharge. that's the main characteristic for all computer equipment and mobile phones as well as the market for electric cars like the Tesla.

The cathode of this battery is made of carbon nanotubes and viruses.

Kal Penn from Dr House to the White House Beside Barack Obama

A dead in the team of the Dr House !

Total change in career for the American actor Kal Penn aged 31.

Having played the role of Ahmed Amar in the sixth season of "24" alongside Kiefer Sutherland and later Dr. Lawrence Kutner in the famous Dr. House, he was offered the post of associate director of public relations for the White House. Fervent activist for Barack Obama during his presidential campaign, Kal Penn did not hesitate to set his shirt to the next President, here is towards the capital of the United States.

But a real puzzle for producers of the series Dr House, that the actor was in the process of turning. and the only solution: the character will be found dead in a suicide. No neighborhood in Hollywood and Washington!

He finally removed the medical clothes to put on the costume and tie with the same talent for at least four years.

Law of Gravity
Any instrument fell on the floor will nest in the most inaccessible corner.

Law of Time
1. There is absolutely no relationship between time spent on call you need to do and time will you actually do.
2. if you end your service at 8:00, your last statement will be held at 7:59.

Law of Time and Distance

1. Any piece of equipment vital not ever fall down until: You need to save a life.
2. The automatic mode works only in manual.

Ambulances in Intervention law
No matter how you drive the ambulance based on a speech, it will never be fast enough, until you see a police patrol and at this moment, it is always too fast. Unless it is a call for a police officer who will die, and then you can never drive fast enough.

Toilets and Emergency law
1. Every call is always received when you are in the bathroom. If you exit, there will be no appeal.

List of Hormone's surnames.

Hormone: Greek: (excite or turn on) is a chemical messenger carried by the blood.

Here is a list of common names of some hormones, feel free to add yours in the "comments" section because the list is not exhaustive ..
Because somtimes a hormone has many effects on the body, it can have many names. such as oxytocin, in attachment, love, childbirth, or cortisol, which is involved into stress or when we wake up.
  • Melatonin: Hormone of Sleep
  • Oxytocin: Love hormone / or affection.
  • Somatropin or somatotropin (GH): Growth hormone.
  • Chorionic Gonadotrophin hormone (CGh): hormone of pregnancy.
  • FSH: Follicle-stimulating Hormone.
  • LH: Luteinizing hormone
  • Insulin Hypoglycemic hormone
  • Glucagon: Hyperglycaemic hormone.
  • Cortisol: Stress hormone
  • Endorphine: Delight hormone / anti pain hormone.
  • Dopamine: Delight hormone.
  • Prolactin: Breastfeeding and patience hormone.
  • Leptin: Obesity hormone
  • Serotonin: Good mood hormone.

: from Greek: pherein (carry) and hormon (excite) are chimical messengers acting between the same species found in sweat, urine .. etc. .. the most striking example in humans is the synchronization of menstrual cycles of women living together ..
Phytohormones: vegetal hormones.

The First Ovulation Video In The World

This is the 1st video of ovulation in the world, performed by a trans-vaginal laparoscopy by a team of Belgian researchers: Stephan and Ivo Brosens Gordts. and ingredients are: a women, a small surgery, an endoscope, a good timing and luck! We proceeded to measure temperature and hormone levels to detect the precise time of ovulation.. It is progesterone that induces an increase of 5 to 6 tenths of a degree a day after ovulation. The egg stands out in a pile of mucus (which can be seen on the video) and is hosted by the fringes of the fallopian tube to continue it's adventure in the womb.. it should be remembered that only the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus are intra-peritoneal organs. So, by a small incision on the walls of the vagina will see with the endoscope that the ovary get closer to the tubes when it will release the egg. Follicule of De Graff.

Note that:
Sperm survive in the cervix for 3 to 5 days.
The egg has a lifespan of 12 to 24 hours.
So that the period of fertility is usually between 4 days before ovulation and 24 hours after.

The syndrome of the medical student

medical studens strike First clear from your head the idea that a syndrome is a disease characterized by severe deformities and mental retardations and bla bla .. of course there are syndromes as I described but for the most part they are other than that .. So:
A syndrome is a set of clinical signs and symptoms that a patient is likely to present at certain diseases.

Let explain more The syndrome of the medical student of which sometimes I have suffered ;-)
The syndrome of the medical student refers to the tendency of medical students
to self-diagnose in an irrational way the most serious diseases. It is more
a meeting of circumstances than a true pathology.

The syndrome is caused by several factors:

  • Learning semiology preceding pathology: Students know the signs of major diseases and syndromes, without sufficient experience of how really this pathology can affect the body.
  • Stress associated with emotionally difficult situations and possibly fear of contagion in the workplace.

The syndrome of the medical student should be distinguished from:

  • Hypochondria, which is a psychiatric illness making the hypochondriac persuaded to be suffering from sickness, delirious, or morbid fear of catching a disease;
  • Self-medication;
  • Self-diagnosis, although it is difficult.
Hypocondria The syndrome of the medical student declines as the student get far in its medical curriculum for several reasons: the acquisition of knowledge about the disease;
  • Relativization with patients seen at the hospital;
  • The psychological resistance;
  • Confrontation with reality: he has not got the diseases! (eg other supposed symptoms are absent).
Note that the syndrome of the medical student can be expressed in a negative form: irrational denial of a real disease, because students can not gather all the signs of this disease.

Autopsy video face to face with death

Here is the link to a video autopsy on female. Warning Warning! Sensitive souls: do not click !! The autopsy you'll see is the complete procedure.. That means, an autopsy on a dead corpse (of course) from start to finish, with the famous Y incision at the beggining. Anyway you'll become a doctor and you need to go through this step a day or another :)

You Are Responsible!!
Autopsy video

Good to know:
The autopsy (or post-mortem examination or necropsy) is the medical examination of corpses. It comes from the Greek "See it with your own eyes." Necropsy comes from the Greek "see death."

Cell phones = Cancer !

cell phones = cancer !The speech reassuring of the WHO on risks associated with the use of mobile phones is shaken again by a new Israeli study, partially funded also by the UN organization. The radiation emitted by the devices clearly increases the risk of cancer of the parotid glands, located near the ear.

Without any ambiguity, the authors reveal "a causal link between the use of mobile phones and development of parotid gland tumors. And more the use of the phone is protracted, the danger seems more important. " The risk is (thus) increased 50% in people who use their phones for more than 22 hours per month" the authors said.

Another important point: the exposure is more dangerous in rural areas (where the transmitters are more powerful) than urbain. It's an important step that has just been crossed.

Until now, the contradictory conclusion on the possible dangers of electromagnetic fields were not founded. For Dr. Sadetzki, "we must both encourage people to use more systematically hands-free kits, and re-evaluate the standards in mobile telephony. A new technology should (in effect) to be rapidly developed to reduce the risk of tumors associated with radiation.

Mechanic robot with living rat's brain

Gordon the robot with the rat brain and living cells It is more than surprising what have a team done at the University of Reading (England) emulated by Frankenstein! And you’ll be more surprised when you discover in more details.. this left completely stunned. Let get closer:

The robot named Gordon works with a network of neurons extracted from a rat brain. These neurons were extracted, immersed in a physiological saline, then placed on a bed of sixty electrodes. after that connections were established between living neurons and the 60 small electrodes. Thus a network formed in the first 24 hours (50 000 - 100 000 neurons) and after just a week, spontaneous electrical charges were produced. these impulses are now controlling the robot via a connection with the electrodes of the muscles effectors, oops sorry :) engines effectors.

Gordon began to learn by repeating, for example, when the robot is facing a wall, once, then twice, and so on; in the end he will learn to sidestep the obstacle! and how he knows he struck a barrier? it's simple, there are electronic receivers that send electrical signals to the neurons when the robot reaches a wall, sort of an electronic skin. So the brain has its own related small sensory made for him and connected to it! The final touch of researchers will be to increase the voltage on some electrodes with chemicals to modulate the transmission to neurons. a sort of psychotropic drugs .. :)

The project manager Dr Kevin Warwick said that if the robot and consequently the brain is not stimulated and doesn’t learns anything new for a long time, he neglect him self as in humans ... a kind of depression:) The team has developed several brains and observed difference in personality, even with only a brain of 100 000 neurons only! then we can find some violent robots, others nice and quiet, some learn quickly, and other less intelligent who learn slowly .. In the end, the use of human neurons is an ethical problem rather than technical.. Imagine a robot with human neurons! it's crazy .. The robot can even clam for his rights as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Citizen of 1789 .. :) It could be possible one day.. robots who control the world!Note that a rat carries a maximum of 1 000 000 (1 million) neurons, a human got some 100 000 000 000 (100 billion) of neurons. while the current robot has a maximum of 100 000. is therefore a simplified version of a complete human prototype brain. To achieve a more intelligent robot, it only remains to increase the number of neurons.. and we will have a robot that: loves, hates, cries and laughs .. in brief, a human-robot!

Even science fiction had not imagined this!

Nobel Prize 2008 in medicine honors viruses!

Medal of the Nobel prize in medicine The Nobel Prize for medicine this year rewarded the works of two French on HIV: Françoise Barré - Sinoussi and Luc Montagnier and a German named Harald zur Hausen on his work on cervical cancer of uterus. The French are considered to be the first to discover the virus of the aqcuired immunodeficiency syndrom, in fact they was widely recognized and despite the debate.

HIV has already killed 25 million people since its discovery in 1983. And the work of these two French "have been essential to understand current biology of this disease and its retroviral treatment, "Luc Montagnier has dedicated his reward "to all AIDS patients" and announced a "therapeutic vaccine" within four years.

The German Harald zur Hausen has isolated the human papilloma virus "or papillomavirus (HPV) responsible of the cancer of the cervix, the second type of cancer more prevalent among women with 500,000 cases each year. In fact HPV is one of the few viruses that leads to cancer after contamination, and this is due to its mode of integration into the human genome. The German researcher will receive half of the price of 10 million Swedish kronor equals 1.02 million euros and the two French winners share the second half.

The Nobel Prize in physics was shared by 3 Japanese for their work on the causes of the abolition of the super symmetry in the universe, infact, after the Big Bang, a quantity of material equal to a quantity antimatter were produced .. but as we know: matter and antimatter cancel each other releasing energy, but this didn't happen in our universe, so there is a break of symmetry, and permits to our universe to exist. The work of Japanese have allowed a better understanding of this phenomenon by discovering the existence of three types of Quarks that are sub-constituents of neutrons, protons in addition to all other subatomic particles..

Note that the Nobel Prize was created in 1901 as chemist Alfred Nobel had wished. French was 53 rewarded 13 times in literature, 12 physics, 10 Medicine, 9 in Peace, 8 in Chemistry, and 1 in Economics. The price Nobel does not recompence mathematics, the legend says that Alfred Nobel was afraid that the mathematician who has stolen the heart of his beloved wife obtains the prices one day .. and was always .. Unfortunately if all men were like Nobel. :D

In fact these last days coincide with the discovery that HIV is more old as thought, and huge progress in the treatment by strengthening the immune system.

We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

DoubleClick DART cookies

The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting

You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
