Yet when we go after them, it sometimes feels impossible. Proving what persistence and hard work can achieve, 26-year-old Jeffrey Kendall has decided to share his weight-loss transformation to motivate others and celebrate his results. Organic honey is a sweet success for Cuba as other bee populations suffer. Long known for its cigars and rum, Cuba has added organic honey to its list of key agricultural exports, creating a buzz among farmers as pesticide use has been linked to declining bee populations elsewhere.
Organic honey has become Cuba’s fourth most valuable agricultural export behind fish products, tobacco and drinks, but ahead of the Caribbean island’s more famous sugar and coffee, said Theodor Friedrich, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation’s (FAO) representative for Cuba. “All of [Cuba’s] honey can be certified as organic,” Friedrich told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “Its honey has a very specific, typical taste; in monetary value, it’s a high-ranking product. The Reality : Sustainable Live-For-Free Communities. New Bladeless Wind Turbine Claimed to be Twice as Efficient as Conventional Designs.
© Saphon When it comes to the future of wind power, one company thinks it looks a lot different than you would expect, and cheaper and more efficient to boot.
Saphon, out of Tunisia, is interested in finding partners to mass-produce and market their unique wind energy device, based on their own Zero Blade technology. "The Zero-Blade Technology is largely inspired from the sailboat and is likely to increase the efficiency of the current wind power conversion devices. The blades are replaced by a sail shaped body while both hub and gearbox are removed. " SLIDESHOW Wind Energy Today: A Look at Wind Energy Projects Around The World. Real-Life Star Trek Tractor Beams Will Change How We Practice Medicine. By Natalie Shoemaker Imagine going into the doctor and having a blood clot or cell inside your body moved or manipulated without any incisions.
The future may be closer than you think. The non-invasive procedures of the Star Trek universe — a quick scan and a hypo-spray — is an optimistic wish for the future of medicine. The researchers of today from several universities have developed an acoustic tractor beam that could further minimize the way doctors practice surgery. It's possible the surgical practices of today will be looked at by future generations as medieval. The Awkward but Essential Art of Office Chitchat. Is Cohousing the Future?

He Attaches An Extra Wheel To His Wheelchair, And It's Ground Breaking. New Protein Supercharges Immune System to Fight Cancer. By Orion Jones Scientists have discovered a new protein that appears to supercharge the body's own immune system, allowing it to compete against cancerous cells in ways that were previously impossible.
Called LEM, or lymphocyte expansion molecule, the newly discovered protein molecule allows the immune system to continuously produce high quantities of T cells, which are the body's natural defense against cancer. "This is a completely unknown protein. Nobody had ever seen it before or was even aware that it existed. It looks and acts like no other protein," said professor Philip Ashton-Rickardt, from the Department of Medicine at Imperial College, UK, who led the study. When cancer first attacks the body, the immune system responds by sending T cells to the site of the mutated, cancerous cells.
Researchers hope their discovery will result in a gene therapy that allows the T cells of cancer patients to be enhanced by the LEM protein, then injected back into their body. The Giant Rats That Save Lives. This video is not currently supported on your browser.

The federal government hopes to reverse America's declining honeybee and monarch butterfly populations by making more federal land bee-friendly, spending more money on research and considering the use of less pesticides.
Scientists say bees — crucial to pollinate many crops — have been hurt by a combination of declining nutrition, mites, disease, and pesticides. The federal plan is an "all hands on deck" strategy that calls on everyone from federal bureaucrats to citizens to do what they can to save bees, which provide more than $15 billion in value to the U.S. economy, according to White House science adviser John Holdren.
