Scientists Inserted A Human Brain Gene Into Monkeys In A Controversial Study

In what is arguably an ethically controversial study, a team of scientists in China have inserted a gene involved in human brain development into the genomes of monkeys. In follow-up experiments, they tested whether the modified monkeys performed better than their control peers in cognitive tasks. The study is published in the journal National Science Review. Scientists inserted the human gene MCPH1 into 11 rhesus monkeys, five of which survived long enough to have their mental abilities tested. According to the team’s findings, the transgenic monkeys did better on memory tests and reaction time trials compared to the non-gene-edited group. In one such memory test, the monkeys were required to remember the color and shape of a stimulus that popped up on the …

China’s economy had a steady start to 2019

Hong Kong (CNN Business)China’s economy could be showing renewed signs of life in 2019. Chinese government statistics showed that growth in the first three months of the year was supported by strong manufacturing production and greater spending by Chinese consumers. While China’s current economic growth rate is still its slowest in decades, there have been signs of positivity in recent weeks, with indicators including property prices and bank lending suggesting a more bullish hue. Analysts said that investors will now turn to the possibility of an agreement on trade issues between the United States and China in the coming weeks. Investors’ “risk appetite should improve as China’s economic downturn risk is contained,” Hui added. Stimulus starts to bear fruit Chinese …

‘The Cher Show’ cast join actual Cher for a pretty special performance

It’s no mean feat playing a music legend in a Broadway show, but The Cher Show cast give it a red hot go. However, Cher herself reminded us of the real deal when she joined Broadway’s Jarrod Spector and Micaela Diamond for a performance of her Sonny Bono duet “I Got You Babe” on The Tonight Show. Honestly, Diamond and Spector do a killer job. But having the Goddess of Pop join the party to belt out her own classic 1965 track is a real treat — and one hell of a time warp. Makes you want to watch Mamma Mia 2 again… Original Article : HERE ; This post was curated & posted using : RealSpecific

10 critical ‘GoT’ details to remember during the final season

(CNN)Nothing in “Game of Thrones” happens by accident. (NOTE: This list only includes things specifically mentioned or heavily implied in the series, so things like the Valonqar prophecy are not mentioned by name. Otherwise, we’d be here all day.) 1. White Walker symbols In case you needed a clue that this story wasn’t JUST about games and thrones, after all, the very first scene of Season 1, Episode 1 ends with a very cryptic arrangement of dead bodies, executed by the very murder snowmen we’ve come to know and fear. We see the White Walkers using circular patterns pretty often, and a spiral pattern of dead bodies in Season 3, Episode 3 is echoed again in Season 6, Episode 5 …

The Craziest Myths About Sex People Used To Believe Betches

We think that kids believe the stupidest things, but turns out, so do adults. Throughout history, people have believed tons of crazy myths about sex, no matter how ridiculous they sound to us now. But at the time, these people thought they were right (and they probably thought they were like, really smart). I don’t mean to sound smug, because the reality is, even today people still believe a variety of sex myths. And, look, I get it. Sex can be uncomfortable. Sometimes it feels like limbs are everywhere, and it can be overall an awkward experience. For some people (not me because I publicly write about my sex life), the thought of talking about sex with their parents, friends, …

All shook up: moving Graceland would desecrate Elviss legacy

Money, of course, was the reason relocating Presleys mansion to Japan was even considered, but the Kings home should be protected It sits on a busy boulevard eight miles from Memphis, Tennessee: a peculiar mansion bought by an excitable 22-year-old singer in 1957. He had fallen in love with the blues on Beale Street, cut his first records in the citys Sun Studios; he would later make three albums with the city in his name. Elvis Presley left Graceland for the last time in 1977 he is even buried in the garden. I visited Graceland on my musical honeymoon through the US eight years ago. The place was his life. Would it be so if it moved to another country? …
