Deleting genes could boost lifespan by 60 per cent, say scientists

Scientists have discovered more than 200 genes linked to ageing and have found switching them off extends life


By Sarah Knapton, Science Editor
11 Oct 2015

The secret of extending life by decades may lie in switching off certain genes, scientists believe, after showing that small genetic tweaks can make organisms live 60 per cent longer.

Ten years of research by the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing and the University of Washington has identified 238 genes that, when silenced, increase the lifespan of yeast cells.

Many of the genes are present in mammals, including humans, suggesting that switching them off could dramatically increase lifespan.

“This study looks at aging in the context of the whole genome and gives us a more complete picture of what aging is,” said lead author Dr Brian Kennedy.

"Almost half of the genes we found that affect aging are conserved in mammals.

"In theory, any of these factors could be therapeutic targets to extend healthspan. What we have to do now is figure out which ones are amenable to targeting.”

To determine which genes were responsible for ageing, researchers examined 4,698 strains of yeast, each with a single gene deletion and then monitored how long cells lived for before they stopped dividing.

They found that deleting a gene called LOS1 produced particularly impressive results, extending life by 60 per cent. LOS1 is linked to a genetic master switch which has long been associated with calorie restriction through fasting and increased lifespan.

"Calorie restriction has been known to extend lifespan for a long time," added Dr. Kennedy.

Co-author Dr Mark McCormick, of the Buck Institute said: "Our best results were single gene deletions that increased lifespan by around 60 per cent compared to normal yeast."

Earlier this year academics from the University of Southern California found that a five day diet which mimics fasting can slow down ageing, add years to life, boost the immune system and cut the risk of heart disease and cancer.

The plan restricts calories to between one third and a half of normal intake.

Last year the same team discovered that fasting can regenerate the entire immune system, bringing a host of long-term health benefits.

When humans tested out the regimen, within three months they had reduced biomarkers linked to ageing, diabetes, cancer and heart disease as well as cutting overall body fat.

The researchers think it works by slashing a hormone which encourages growth, and has been linked to cancer susceptibility. Essentially it tricks the body into ageing more slowly.

The new study was published in the journal Cell Metabolism.

Top 5 UFO Sightings in India

By Editorial @indiacom
October 10, 2015 2:37 AM

Whether you fall into the category of skeptics or believers, one thing is certain—the UFO phenomenon is very real, with approximately 70,000 UFO sightings reported worldwide annually (192 sightings a day). Despite its close association with extraterrestrial visitation, the abbreviation UFO merely stands for an unidentified flying object.

Although the bulk of UFO sightings have been ruled out as alien spacecraft, there are still thousands curious incidents that remain unsolved even today, contributing to the increasingly popular belief that we are not alone.

While India is not necessarily a hotspot, the country has seen its fair share of UFO sighting stories. Here is a look quick look at five of the most compelling headlines that might even turn some of you skeptics into believers.

1. October 3, 1957: Manbhum, Bihar

On October 3, 1957, long before the age of smartphones and digital cameras, a flying saucer was reportedly seen by about 800 people in three Indian villages—Kadori, Borsa and Mangalda—in Manbhum district of Bihar. According to PROJECT 1947, a research group that aims to document and preserve historical accounts of UFO sightings, the Times of India reported that hundreds of villagers came out from their huts to see the strange object.

The UFO, which was shaped like a saucer, allegedly came down to a height of about 500 feet above the earth, “making a sound like the whirring of a motor-car engine.” It hovered for a few minutes and eventually soared upwards at an incredible speed after emitting smoke.

To this day, the people of Kadori, Borsa and Mangalda have not been given an explanation of the UFO’s origin—but it is rather difficult to believe that 800 people were merely “seeing things.”

2. October 29, 2007: Eastern Kolkata

Just five decades after the 1957 UFO sighting in Manbhum, a fast-moving UFO was reportedly spotted in the early morning in Eastern Kolkata. The incident—which was captured on video and even aired on television news—showed two color-changing, fireball-like objects floating in the dark sky. But according to hundreds of witnesses, as well as the cameraman behind the video, the two objects seen in the video were actually a part of the same spacecraft.

DNA India and a number of other sources named Farhan Akhtar, deputy general manager of H&R Johnson, as the man behind the camera. According to those reports, Akhtar was getting up for a drink of water when he spotted the strange lights. “When I went to draw the curtains, I saw through the window—which faces east—something that looked like an abnormally big star at a 30 degree angle in the sky,” he told DNA India.

Akhtar claimed that he saw “a white ball with flaming sides which changed color and shape after few minutes and seemed dotted with red bulbs but with a white patch in the middle.”

Air traffic control sources at Kolkata airport reportedly said there was “no information from the radar controller on the sighting of such an object, nor did any pilot report anything irregular.” Weather balloons, which are commonly misidentified as alien spacecraft, were also ruled out, as the air traffic control claimed that none were registered on that day.

3. August 4, 2013: Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir

Perhaps one of the most compelling pieces of evidence of life beyond our planet is this video, which was reportedly shot by the Indian army near the India and China border. The mysterious lights, which were filmed over the skies of Ladakh, and were reportedly discovered by border patrol.

According to The Hindu, there had been more than 100 similar sightings in that area around the time this footage was shot on August 4. When asked about the strange yellowish lights, Defense Minister A K Antony told Parliament that there was “no conclusive proof of sighting of unidentified flying objects over the Sino-Indian border.”

Some researchers reportedly determined that the Indian soldiers had simply misidentified Jupiter and Venus, while others have suggested that the UFOs were Chinese drones or satellites. However, Chinese officials have denied that claim and the video appears to show more than five orbs that move.

4. January 10, 2014: Mumbai, Maharashtra

Drawing eerie similarities to Eastern Kolkata’s 2007 UFO sighting, on January 10, 2014, Lorenzo Ceszar, believed to be an amateur UFOlogist, captured shocking footage of what appears to be as many as five bright and color-changing orbs.

Though this particular incident did not receive much attention from mainstream media, YouTube comments reveal that Ceszar was not the only one who witnessed the UFOs in Mumbai on that night. While some claim that the lights were merely Chinese lanterns, the movement of these lights had UFOlogists thinking otherwise.

5. August 4, 2015: Kanpur, Utttar Pradesh

A young boy from Kanpur recently made headlines after claiming that he snapped an authentic photo of a UFO in June of this year. According to the International Business Times, the young boy was going through some photos he had taken of the clouds when he spotted the object, which resembles the stereotypical UFO shape, as portrayed in the movies.

“I like nature photography and when I saw various shapes of clouds in the sky I started clicking pictures on my phone. While I was going through the clicked pictures in the photo gallery, I saw a round object in the photographs and when I zoomed to take a closer look at it, I noticed it was a UFO,” the child told the International Business Times.

Though skeptics have argued that the photos seem “a little too perfect,” both the boy and his father, Santosh Gupta, have adamantly denied that photo-editing software was used. You can watch the father-son duo discuss the unique images in an interview with News 18 Hindi and decide for yourself.

Africa's urban waste: A valuable source of electricity

Estimated electricity production from the total waste generated in Africa could reach 122.2 TWh in 2025, or more than 20% of the electricity consumed in 2010 at continental level (661.5TWh), according to a JRC co-authored study which analysed the potential of urban solid waste for Africa's electricity needs.

This is an equivalent to the energy needed for 40 million households in 2025 in Africa. However waste management is poor -- the potential electricity of waste actually collected was estimated at 83.8 TWh in 2025. Still, this represents energy needed for 27 million families in 2025, considering the average electricity consumption in 2010 in Africa.

Many Africans do not have access to energy. Besides providing an interesting share of gross energy consumption and electricity as a renewable resource, energy recovered from waste could also help minimise the impact of municipal solid waste on the environment. The study Evaluation of energy potential of Municipal Solid Waste from African urban areas provides an estimate of the total potential of energy from waste incineration and from landfill gas (LFG) 2025 for each African country.

The Atlantic

The Most Mysterious Star in Our Galaxy

Astronomers have spotted a strange mess of objects whirling around a distant star. Scientists who search for extraterrestrial civilizations are scrambling to get a closer look.

by Ross Andersen
13 October 2015

In the Northern hemisphere’s sky, hovering above the Milky Way, there are two constellations—Cygnus the swan, her wings outstretched in full flight, and Lyra, the harp that accompanied poetry in ancient Greece, from which we take our word “lyric.”

Between these constellations sits an unusual star, invisible to the naked eye, but visible to the Kepler Space Telescope, which stared at it for more than four years, beginning in 2009.

“We’d never seen anything like this star,” says Tabetha Boyajian, a postdoc at Yale. “It was really weird. We thought it might be bad data or movement on the spacecraft, but everything checked out.”

Kepler was looking for tiny dips in the light emitted by this star. Indeed, it was looking for these dips in more than 150,000 stars, simultaneously, because these dips are often shadows cast by transiting planets. Especially when they repeat, periodically, as you’d expect if they were caused by orbiting objects.

The Kepler Space Telescope collected a great deal of light from all of those stars it watched. So much light that Kepler’s science team couldn’t process it all with algorithms. They needed the human eye, and human cognition, which remains unsurpassed in certain sorts of pattern recognition. Kepler’s astronomers decided to found Planet Hunters, a program that asked “citizen scientists” to examine light patterns emitted by the stars, from the comfort of their own homes.

In 2011, several citizen scientists flagged one particular star as “interesting” and “bizarre.” The star was emitting a light pattern that looked stranger than any of the others Kepler was watching.

The light pattern suggests there is a big mess of matter circling the star, in tight formation. That would be expected if the star were young. When our solar system first formed, four and a half billion years ago, a messy disk of dust and debris surrounded the sun, before gravity organized it into planets, and rings of rock and ice.

But this unusual star isn’t young. If it were young, it would be surrounded by dust that would give off extra infrared light. There doesn’t seem to be an excess of infrared light around this star.

It appears to be mature.

And yet, there is this mess of objects circling it. A mess big enough to block a substantial number of photons that would have otherwise beamed into the tube of the Kepler Space Telescope. If blind nature deposited this mess around the star, it must have done so recently. Otherwise, it would be gone by now. Gravity would have consolidated it, or it would have been sucked into the star and swallowed, after a brief fiery splash.

Boyajian, the Yale Postdoc who oversees Planet Hunters, recently published a paper describing the star’s bizarre light pattern. Several of the citizen scientists are named as co-authors. The paper explores a number of scenarios that might explain the pattern—instrument defects; the shrapnel from an asteroid belt pileup; an impact of planetary scale, like the one that created our moon.

The paper finds each explanation wanting, save for one. If another star had passed through the unusual star’s system, it could have yanked a sea of comets inward. Provided there were enough of them, the comets could have made the dimming pattern.

But that would be an extraordinary coincidence, if that happened so recently, only a few millennia before humans developed the tech to loft a telescope into space. That’s a narrow band of time, cosmically speaking.

And yet, the explanation has to be rare or coincidental. After all, this light pattern doesn’t show up anywhere else, across 150,000 stars. We know that something strange is going on out there.

When I spoke to Boyajian on the phone, she explained that her recent paper only reviews “natural” scenarios. “But,” she said, there were “other scenarios” she was considering.

Jason Wright, an astronomer from Penn State University, is set to publish an alternative interpretation of the light pattern. SETI researchers have long suggested that we might be able to detect distant extraterrestrial civilizations, by looking for enormous technological artifacts orbiting other stars. Wright and his co-authors say the unusual star’s light pattern is consistent with a “swarm of megastructures,” perhaps stellar-light collectors, technology designed to catch energy from the star.

“When [Boyajian] showed me the data, I was fascinated by how crazy it looked,” Wright told me. “Aliens should always be the very last hypothesis you consider, but this looked like something you would expect an alien civilization to build.”

Boyajian is now working with Wright and Andrew Siemion, the Director of the SETI Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley. The three of them are writing up a proposal. They want to point a massive radio dish at the unusual star, to see if it emits radio waves at frequencies associated with technological activity.

If they see a sizable amount of radio waves, they’ll follow up with the Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico, which may be able to say whether the radio waves were emitted by a technological source, like those that waft out into the universe from Earth’s network of radio stations.

Assuming all goes well, the first observation would take place in January, with the follow-up coming next fall. If things go really well, the follow-up could happen sooner. “If we saw something exciting, we could ask the director for special allotted time on the VLA,” Wright told me. “And in that case, we’d be asking to go on right away.”

In the meantime, Boyajian, Siemion, Wright, the citizen scientists, and the rest of us, will have to content ourselves with longing looks at the sky, aimed between the swan and the lyre, where maybe, just maybe, someone is looking back, and seeing the sun dim ever so slightly, every 365 days.

The Missing Letter 'R'

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church, by hand. He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies—not from the original manuscript. So the new monk goes to the Old Abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says; "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son."

He goes down into the dark caves under the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives, in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the Old Abbot.

So the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees the old monk banging his head against the wall and wailing . . . "We missed the 'R!' We missed the 'R!' We missed the bloody 'R!'"

His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old Abbot; "What's wrong, father?"

With a choking voice, the old Abbot replies, "The word was . .
.... 'CELEBRATE!'

US Navy Revives Ancient Navigation as Cyber Threats Grow

2:44 PM ET By Steve Mollman

Satellites and GPS are vulnerable to cyber attack. The tools of yesteryear are not.

Sometimes old school is best. In today’s U.S. Navy, navigating a warship by the stars instead of GPS is making a comeback.

The Naval Academy stopped teaching celestial navigation in the late 1990s, deeming the hard-to-learn skill irrelevant in an era when satellites can relay a ship’s location with remarkable ease and precision.

But satellites and GPS are vulnerable to cyber attack (paywall). The tools of yesteryear—sextants, nautical almanacs, volumes of tables—are not. With that in mind, the academy is reinstating celestial navigation into its curriculum. Wooden boxes with decades-old instruments will be dusted off and opened, and students will once again learn to chart a course by measuring the angles of stars.

Old school navigation pales in comparison to today’s high-tech systems. It’s both painfully difficult and far less precise. But it can get you where you need to go within about 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers). That could be a matter of life and death in a scenario where modern technology has been compromised.

As it rebuilds the program, the Navy is getting help from the US Merchant Marine Academy, which never stopped teaching celestial navigation. According to instructor Timothy Tisch, “Knowledge of celestial navigation in the GPS era provides a solid back-up form of navigation in the event GPS becomes unreliable for whatever reason. It is also good professional practice to use one navigational system to verify the accuracy of another.”

The Naval Academy’s starry-eyed class of 2017 will be the first to graduate with the reinstated instruction.
