Mini Black Holes Easier To Make Than Thought:

"Creating microscopic black holes using particle accelerators requires less energy
than previously thought, researchers say.

If physicists do succeed in creating black holes with such energies on Earth, the
achievement could prove the existence of extra dimensions in the universe,
physicists noted.

Any such black holes would pose no risk to Earth, however, scientists added."

CERN scientists say particle is no "super-Higgs"

Physicists who found a new elementary particle last year said on Wednesday it looked like a basic Higgs boson rather than any "super-Higgs" that some cosmologists had hoped might open up more exotic secrets of the universe.

If you don't want to drink, another good source of trans-resveratrol, which is more bioavailable, is vinegar produced from red wines (red wine vinegar, balsamic). It's actually much more concentrated as well due to the second fermentation process. I try to have some (with olive oil) on salad daily.

That had been a theory for years, but it seems to be gathering more support from several new studies.

Science 2.0: Lazarus Project Recreates Extinct Australian Frog

Quote:

The Lazarus Project team says they have been able to recover cell nuclei of the extinct gastric-brooding frog, Rheobatrachus silus, from tissues collected in the 1970s and kept for 40 years in a conventional deep freezer.

The genome of Rheobatrachus silus, extinct since 1983, has been revived and reactivated by a team of scientists using somatic cell nuclear transfer
to implant a "dead" cell nucleus into a fresh egg from another frog species.

Rheobatrachus silus is famous for swallowing its eggs, brooded its young in its stomach and giving birth through its mouth. The "de-extinction" project aims to bring the frog back to life.

In repeated experiments over five years, the researchers used somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), which is banned by the Obama administration in the United States. They took fresh donor eggs from the distantly related Great Barred Frog, Mixophyes fasciolatus, inactivated the egg nuclei and replaced them with dead nuclei from the extinct frog.

Some of the eggs spontaneously began to divide and grow to early embryo stage a tiny ball of many living cells.

Although none of the embryos survived beyond a few days, genetic tests confirmed that the dividing cells contain the genetic material from the extinct frog.

"We are watching Lazarus arise from the dead, step by exciting step," says the leader of the Lazarus Project team, Professor Mike Archer, of the University of New South Wales, in Sydney. "We've reactivated dead cells into living ones and revived the extinct frog's genome in the process. Now we have fresh cryo-preserved cells of the extinct frog to use in future cloning experiments.

"We're increasingly confident that the hurdles ahead are technological and not biological and that we will succeed. Importantly, we've demonstrated already the great promise this technology has as a conservation tool when hundreds of the world's amphibian species are in catastrophic decline."
The technical work was led by Dr Andrew French and Dr Jitong Guo, formerly of Monash University, in a University of Newcastle laboratory led by frog expert, Professor Michael Mahony, along with Mr Simon Clulow and Dr John Clulow. The frozen specimens were preserved and provided by Professor Mike Tyler, of the University of Adelaide, who extensively studied both species of gastric-brooding frog R. silus and R. vitellinus - before they vanished in the wild in 1979 and 1985 respectively.

UNSW's Professor Archer spoke publicly for the first time today about the Lazarus Project and also about his ongoing interest in cloning the extinct Australian thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, at the TEDx DeExtinction event in Washington DC, hosted by Revive and Restore and the National Geographic Society.

Researchers from around the world are gathered there to discuss progress and plans to 'de-extinct' other extinct animals and plants. Possible candidate species include the woolly mammoth, dodo, Cuban red macaw and New Zealand's giant moa.

The results are yet to be published.
One step closer till the real Jurassic Park...

Moa didn't go extinct. Their dwarven variant is still in NZ...known as Kiwis.

And there are supposedly those which are the size of ostriches.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I'm pretty sure kiwis are actually more closely related to emus, whereas moa are closer to ostriches. They're all ratites.

Mammoths next please.
If there is anything like an evolutionary aquired taste in humans, they must be delicious.

Why don't you fly down to Thailand and have a taste of their descendants?

And it might improve your "performance" the next Oktoberfest.

My vote goes for the Dodo, I am tired of chicken and would pleasantly receive a new flavor

Buffalo meat is rather good as is ostrich. Both can be found at Fudruckers.

the local Fudruckers also has Elk (or was it moose?) didn't taste any different then beef.

the dodo probably taste like chicken.

I love buffalo meat. Really nice flavor, great for chili. I've only had ostrich in the form of jerky, would like to try an actual cut of meat from it. I'm actually a huge fan of trying out exotic meat, would love to try kangaroo some time too.

Moose would be interesting. Venison is nice as a stew meat.

I also wonder what it tastes like..
Let's bring it back from the dead so that we can eat it!
