Right now, there are 4,186 people waiting for a heart transplant in the U.S., but with a huge donor shortage not all of these patients are likely to survive.

Beating Human Hearts Grown In Laboratory Using Stem Cells

Growing transplantable hearts in a laboratory has been a long-standing dream within the medical community, and a study in the journal Circulation Research has moved it one step closer to reality: A team of researchers have successfully grown a beating human heart in the laboratory using stem cells. Previous research has shown how 3D printers can be used to manufacture 3D heart segments using biological material. Although vacant of any actual heart cells, these structures provided the “scaffold” on which heart tissue could be grown.

Now, a team from both Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School has taken this scaffolding concept and combined it with stem cells for some truly spectacular results. This is where pluripotent stem cells come in. Roughly 610,000 people die from heart disease in the U.S. every year. Get $5 off orders $40 or more at EntirelyPets.

Americans are ordering this item as a side at McDonald's, and it's the best fast-food hack of 2016

"Believe it or not, you may find some people order a lunch entree and ordering a Egg McMuffin sandwich as an add-on," said McDonald's CFO Kevin Ozan in a Tuesday conference hosted by Bank of America, reports Quartz. As someone who has done exactly that, I believe it — and recommend it. McDonald's breakfast offerings are the perfect companion to many of the chain's lunch and dinner dishes. The classic McMuffin isn't going to provide a full lunch or dinner, but it is one of the most reliable items on the menu — far tastier, I would argue, than any McDonald's burger or grilled-chicken dish and healthier than any fried-chicken sandwich. Ditching the Canadian bacon, the dish is actually one of the healthiest on the McDonald's menu, clocking in at 14 grams of protein and 280 calories.

Why Were Hellfire Missiles Found on a Passenger Plane?

(Photo: U.S. Navy/Public Domain) If you're waiting at an airport in Portland, Oregon wondering why your shipment of Hellfire missiles never arrived, authorities might want to speak to you. Two of the American-made missiles turned up Saturday in the cargo hold of a passenger plane in Belgrade, Serbia, according to the Associated Press. The missiles were discovered by a bomb-sniffing dog hidden inside coffins, a Turkish news agency said. A different source told the news agency that there wasn't much to see here: the missiles, the source said, were training missiles being returned to the U.S., with full knowledge of American authorities. But American officials have not commented, and Serbian authorities are still trying to determine whether the missiles contain live warheads. Pet Services Special Offers at petsmart.

Oregon has become the first state in the U.S. to pass legislation that will see it phase out all coal.

Oregon Becomes First US State To Pass A Law To Phase Out Coal

The state has committed itself to a complete ban on all coal-generated energy by 2035, as well as obligating that at least half of the state’s power come from renewable sources by 2040. The legislation was passed by Oregon's state assembly in a 38-20 vote, and will now need to be signed into law by Governor Kate Brown. Despite only actually having one coal-fired power station within the state, Oregon still gets a third of its energy from coal-fired plants in the states of Montana, Utah, and Wyoming. This means that if Oregon is to wean itself off the dirty fossil fuel, there could be a knock-on effect as carbon emissions from these other states might also drop.

The decision has the backing of two of Oregon’s major energy producers, who will also be required to increase their share of renewables to 50 percent by 2040. 1800Petmeds Coupons.

America’s year without a winter: The 2015-2016 season was the warmest on record

(NOAA) The Lower 48 states had its warmest winter in 121 years of record-keeping, NOAA announced this morning. Temperatures averaged over the country between December and February were nearly five degrees above the 20th-century average. Every state but two were warmer than normal and all six New England states set winter records.

The warmth of this winter marked a stunning reversal from the previous year in New England, when it witnessed one of its harshest winters on record. Rather than punishing cold and paralyzing winter storms, temperatures regularly shot up into the 40s and 50s. Amazon Clothing Coupons Promotional Codes Sale Offers Discounts Clothes.
