My H+ Shopping List - Six Excellent Upgrade Items Available Now When I go shopping for transhumanist enhancements, these items will be on the top of my list. As more futuristic innovations arrive, I’ll add additional enhancements. 1. Better-than-human eyesight “Tiger Woods won golf’s biggest tournament, The Masters, with the help of super-human eyesight. In 1999, he had laser eye surgery, which gave him 20/15 vision.

Oldest Animal Life on Earth Found? - Scientists have discovered the world's oldest known animal fossils, dating to 650 million years ago. - The fossils, likely sponges, push back the fossil record for animals by about 70 million years. - The sponges existed before, and probably after, a severe "Snowball Earth" event that covered much of the globe in ice.

Advanced materials for sodium-beta alumina batteries: Status, challenges and perspectives Journal of Power Sources 195 (2010) 2431–2442 Contents lists available at ScienceDirect Journal of Power Sources Physicists discover "violation of a fundamental symmetry of the universe" @El Kabong: Not bunk, outdated. Think of each additional particle/force discovered as being a refinement. It happens all the time, in all aspects of science. The thing is, we just can't jump all the way to the last chapter and say "All that needs discovering has been discovered" — Like the a pile of rocks, science happens one pebble at a time. Sure, one can theorize as to what the end result *may* look like, but the details only reveal themselves step by step. TL;DR version: Science is a process, not a fixed step.

Open Page : Choose the cereal that suits you Open Page Choose the cereal that suits you Being a nutritionist, I am able to give the low-down on cereals which are greatly misunderstood as just ‘carbs' and, therefore, partly or totally avoided by dieters, I mean ‘reducing dieters'! Aging research; molecular concepts of aging, related diseases and cloning. One way to look at our path to longevity is to regard it as a journey over three sequential bridges. Bridge One is based on therapies that exist today. Bridge One therapies consist of the best of present-day medicine, including biotechnology breakthroughs that are occurring every day. Bridge One will take us to Bridge Two, which consists of the full blossoming of the biotechnology revolution. Then Bridge Two will take us to Bridge Three, the nanotechnology/artificial intelligence revolution, which will lead to life spans that are currently incomprehensible, but which will soon be commonplace, measuring in the hundreds of years. There are several Bridge One technologies that people can do themselves without the aid of medical professionals.

Dreams Make You Smarter, More Creative, Studies Suggest Here's more evidence that sleep, including napping, can make you smarter. Dreaming may improve memory, boost creativity, and help you better plan for the future, new research suggests. In a recent study, people who took naps featuring REM sleep—in which dreams are most vivid—performed better on creativity-oriented word problems. That is, the REM, or rapid eye movement, sleep helped people combine ideas in new ways, according to psychiatrist Sara Mednick, who led the study.

Massive Jupiter-Sized Dark Object May Lurk at Edge of Solar System Comet data that has been collected for over a century suggests that a dark Jupiter sized object is lurking at the edge of the solar system, and may be hurling ice and dust chunks towards Earth. Planetary scientist John Matese of the University of Louisiana explained that 10 years worth of data were added to the initial research to test the hypothesis. “Only now should we be able to falsify or verify that you could have a Jupiter-mass object out there.”
