Cancer expert tells how treatment can be problem Max Wicha is coming to Pittsburgh today to deliver a startling message. Standard cancer treatments not only often fail to eradicate cancer, but can make it worse. That argument isn't coming from a fringe proponent of alternative medicine, but from the founder of the University of Michigan's Comprehensive Cancer Center and a pioneer in research on why cancers recur and spread to other parts of the body. The reason breast cancer and other malignancies often return aggressively after treatment is that when tumor cells die under assault from chemotherapy and radiation, they give off substances that can reactivate a special set of master cells known as cancer stem cells, Dr. Cancer expert tells how treatment can be problem
Taubman Scholar Dr. Max Wicha: Some cancer treatments increase cancer stem cells Taubman Scholar Dr. Max Wicha: Some cancer treatments increase cancer stem cells Ann Arbor, Mich. -- Cancer drugs designed to curb the growth of blood vessels that feed tumors have been found to increase the number of cancer stem cells in breast tumors in mice, according to a new study authored by Taubman Institute Senior Scholar Dr. Max Wicha. That suggests a possible new explanation for why the drugs Avastin and Sutent don't lead to longer cancer survival rates in humans. The researchers treated mice with breast cancer using Avastin and Sutent, both of which work by stopping the growth and formation of blood vessels, a process called angiogenesis.
It is a canon of economic development that a vital path to growth is to upgrade a country’s ability to add value to its products. That means you earn more if you make furniture or cuckoo clocks than if you just cut timber and export the lumber. Value-added manufacturing. This is what Indonesia had in mind with a mining law passed in 2009. The law establishes a ban on exporting unprocessed minerals, but gave mining companies five years to invest in smelters and all the infrastructure that goes with them. The ban goes into effect this Sunday. Indonesia’s Minerals Export Ban | Business Beyond the Reef Indonesia’s Minerals Export Ban | Business Beyond the Reef

When my first child was just one month old, I took her out in the dead of winter in our wooden sled. She fell asleep immediately, bundled up stiffly in her puffy snowsuit, and stayed asleep, even after I brought her back inside and put her on a pillow, for hours. A brand new mom, I was tempted to leave her in the sled pulled up onto our porch, but didn’t dare. My husband, whose former girlfriend happens to be Swedish, I know, told me that Swede parents often put their babies outside to sleep on even the coldest of winter days. “Sleep,” I thought, looking at our baby, who looked as if she was in a coma. “Are we sure she’s just sleeping?” Swedish babies nap outside in freezing temperatures Swedish babies nap outside in freezing temperatures

Why developing vs. developed is now meaningless Hans Rosling says the average woman in the world now has 2.5 children and we are "entering the age of Peak Child." In the 1960s, the world was divided into "developed -- or Western" and "developing"Hans Rosling says the division was relevant in terms of wealth, education and life expectancyBut he says since then, there has been a shift -- with most countries in the middleThe old mindset has not kept up with the new reality and needs changing, Rosling says Editor's note: Hans Rosling is an Edutainer at the Gapminder Foundation, which he co-founded.

Hi, I would not be surprised about microorganisms that acquired resistance to nano silver comparable to antibiotic resistance development. Many resistance loci (genes or gene clusters) are on mobile genetic elements, such as transposons or plasmids. As soon as there is selection pressure, you will enrich for such bugs... Can microorganisms develop a resistance to nano silver comparable to antibiotic resistance development? Can microorganisms develop a resistance to nano silver comparable to antibiotic resistance development?
Researchers from UNSW have cautioned that more work is needed to understand how micro-organisms respond to the disinfecting properties of silver nano-particles, increasingly used in consumer goods, and for medical and environmental applications. Although nanosilver has effective antimicrobial properties against certain pathogens, overexposure to silver nano-particles can cause other potentially harmful organisms to rapidly adapt and flourish, a UNSW study reveals. This result, published in the journal Small, could have wide-reaching implications for the future use of nanosilver as an antimicrobial agent with biomedical and environmental applications.

Consequence and Clarity I'm a lot less naive than I was a year ago. I'm still naive enough to believe that I can explain something very few people might be able to understand. I'm writing and rewriting this article over and over again. Countless forms of the same damn thing.
Lots of people would love to make their own vehicle – especially a light-weight design that requires less power and fuel for the same performance. But it’s a lot harder to do than it sounds! The greatest problem isn’t the mechanicals but instead the bodywork and frame. Building an Ultra Light-Weight Car, Part 1
