Bill Gates, Google’s Brin fund lab-grown meat for the masses

Wikipedia: “In 1998 Jon F. Vein of the United States filed for, and ultimately secured, a patent (US 6,835,390 B1) for the production of tissue engineered meat for human consumption, wherein muscle and fat cells would be grown in an integrated fashion to create food products such as beef, poultry and fish.”

Step right up and try a delicious burger grown from animal cells in a lab. What could go wrong?

https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/08/25/bill-gates-googles-brin-fund-lab-grown-meat-for-the-masses/

Food giant Cargill and Bill Gates are collaborating. Brin gave money to a Dutch scientist, Mark Post, to produce a burger manufactured from cow stem cells. And various research labs around the world are experimenting with different ways of “making meat.”

The medium in which the animal cells are grown is fetal bovine serum; so the possibility of various infectious agents getting into the mix is quite real.

If this frankenfood miracle comes to pass, a whole sector of traditional animal farming would eventually shrink and be phased out; but at the same time, the amount of energy and the cost of creating meat in factories in huge vats would be considerable.

Because meat without fat doesn’t have much taste (or a full nutritional profile), fat would have to be added. How? From what source? That problem hasn’t been solved yet.

The Week

President Trump's nominee for chief scientist of the Department of Agriculture might seem like an odd pick for the job.

After all, the position requires a "distinguished [scientist] with specialized training or significant experience in agricultural research, education, and economics," and Trump's pick — radio host Sam Clovis — might not make the cut, The Daily Beast reports.

Plus there is the fact that Clovis once claimed he was charged by a UFO, as The Des Moines Register recounts:


[WHO Radio host Simon] Conway asked [Clovis] if he'd ever seen a UFO. Clovis started to say yeah, but then said, it's not that he actually saw it, but he knew it was there.

His radar locked on it, and it was doing things our technology couldn't do, he explained. The UFO was traveling toward him at 5,000 mph — and we've got nothing that does that. It came to a complete stop, he said, then reversed away at 5,000 mph.

Clovis said he handed over the radar track to officials.

Spokesman Derek Dufresne noted later that his boss is "a veteran fighter pilot who has served his country with distinction, and he saw an unidentified object that was outside the norm and reported it to appropriate individuals." [The Des Moines Register]


Speaking with The Daily Beast, Conway said his question to Clovis "was jokey … something to laugh at" and "it was a very non-serious thing I was doing, it wasn't him."

Others aren't convinced it was all a joke. "He is pretty crazy," one Iowa Republican said.

Bill Nye sues Disney claiming the company underpaid him by $9M

Published August 25, 2017

Television personality and scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy is suing Disney and several of its subsidiaries claiming the conglomerate underpaid him by at least $9 million for his popular television series.

He filed his lawsuit Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Along with Disney, Nye is also suing Touchstone, ABC and Buena Vista among other subsidiaries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nye claimed he and several partners who created the “Bill Nye the Science Guy” series have not received the net profits they were entitled to from Buena Vista Television.

“Of that 50 percent stake, Nye gets a third, with his partners splitting the other two-thirds — giving him 16.5 percent of 100 percent of the net profits,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It also said the complaint accused the companies of misclassifying revenues and expenses.

Nye said he discovered the “accounting error” in 2008 and employed an external auditor to investigate, telling Disney in 2014 that he was auditing the company. Disney responded that Nye would have to wait “potentially three to four years” because the company was “backlogged with audits,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nye said the audit started in May 2016 but the company did not “produce documents including its license agreements with Netflix and Apple and its sales income from its websites,” according to the lawsuit.

"Nevertheless, even in the absence of these essential documents, even without the ability to fully examine the accounting and related records of the Defendants ... the Auditor identified hundreds of thousands of dollars in underreported payments owed to Mr. Nye," Charles Rainey, Nye’s lawyer, said in the complaint.

"The defendants, and each of them, have engaged in an ongoing, deliberate conspiracy to deceive Mr. Nye and the BNSG Owners, and deprive them of their rightly owned share of the Net Profits from the BNSG series and derivative works," Rainey wrote.

Nye said Disney and its subsidiaries unjustly took about $28 million.

Nye is suing for “fraudulent concealment, fraudulent inducement, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, among other claims,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The popular show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” was aired from Sept. 1993 to June 1998, according to IMDB.

Science Alert

Scientists Have Created a Super-Thin Fabric That Harvests Energy From Our Movements

They call it "twistron"

MIKE MCRAE
26 AUG 2017

A twisted fibre made of gel-coated carbon nanotubes could be the very thing we need to steal energy from our surroundings that would otherwise go to waste.

Threads of a material dubbed "twistron" have already shown incredible promise in the laboratory, but could one day be built into power harvesters that collect the energy equivalent of spare change from our bodies, furniture, or wider environment.

"The easiest way to think of twistron harvesters is, you have a piece of yarn, you stretch it, and out comes electricity," says Carter Haines from The University of Texas at Dallas, whose international team of researchers developed the technology.

The concept of salvaging tiny amounts of energy from ambient heat, radio waves, or movement to power our pocket-sized electronic devices is by no means novel.

It's little wonder why we're obsessed with the idea – our world buzzes with low level electromagnetic waves, friction, and temperature gradients that can be tapped into and used to shuffle around a few electrons.

But for all of their variety, the hunt is still on to make a material that can harvest that energy, and is as robust, cheap, versatile, and efficient as possible.

The twistron might not be the final answer, but it's certainly showing promise.

The mechanism responsible for the fibre's generation of electricity is surprisingly simple. A mesh of carbon atoms rolled into tubes 10,000 times thinner than the width of a human hair makes up the fundamental fibres of the complete filament.

Bundles of these long carbon nanotubes are woven together and twisted, making them elastic. Imagine over-winding a piece of string, which can then be stretched and relaxed as the twists pull back on themselves.

When coated in an electrolyte solution – something as simple as salt water, for example – the changing shape of the fibre moves the carbon-nanotubes around, rearranging charges to generate a voltage.

"Fundamentally, these yarns are supercapacitors," says researcher Na Li.

"In a normal capacitor, you use energy – like from a battery – to add charges to the capacitor. But in our case, when you insert the carbon nanotube yarn into an electrolyte bath, the yarns are charged by the electrolyte itself. No external battery, or voltage, is needed."

The charge generated by stretching the thread is impressive considering it's basically a length of carbon string.

If you can get a kilogram (about 2.2 pounds) of the stuff to buzz at a rate of 30 times a second you'll be sparking a generous 250 watts of electricity. More than enough to run a desktop computer and perhaps a small heater.

Of course there are plenty of more efficient ways to generate this kind of charge, but tethering the material to something already moving, such as clothing, could provide easy access to energy in places where batteries or solar power aren't convenient.

"There is a lot of interest in using waste energy to power the Internet of Things, such as arrays of distributed sensors," says Li.

As a proof of concept, the researchers sewed twistron into a shirt, and found normal breathing was enough to produce a charge.

Cranking it up a notch, they attached a thin, 10-centimetre (4-inch) long thread to a balloon and a sinker, and measured its change in voltage as it experienced the rise and fall of waves at a rate of about one every second.

The output was 1.79 microwatts of electricity; not bad for barely a milligram of fibre dangling from a balloon.

"If our twistron harvesters could be made less expensively, they might ultimately be able to harvest the enormous amount of energy available from ocean waves," says researcher Ray Baughman.

Even in small amounts, the carbon nanotube harvesters could conceivably pull sufficient power for free-floating ocean probes to beam communications back to reporting stations.

Right now production isn't simple or cheap, meaning the technology still has some way to go before it ticks all the boxes.

But carbon nanotube technology is showing wide promise in many different fields, so who knows? Maybe one day in the not-too-distant future you'll be charging up your smart phone by busting out some lush moves in your shiny new twistron suit.

This research was published in Science.

Cryptozoology News

COLVER, Pennsylvania — A man in Cambria County says he saw a creature he believes to be Bigfoot.

The 59-year-old retired man, who provided a full name but opted to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News last week that he was with his truck parking near the woods in 2014 when the animal showed up.

“I was going hunting. I parked the truck and saw this thing came out of the woods,” he said.

ALIEN UFO SHOCK: Mum and six kids ‘see flying saucer… before 3 beings get out’

A MOTHER and six children claimed to see a flying saucer landed on the ground before three “very tall men in silver suits” appeared beside it.

By Jon Austin
PUBLISHED: 08:23, Tue, Aug 29, 2017

The bizarre sighting is said to have happened in Normanton, West Yorkshire, when one of the children ran into the kitchen and told the mum a plane had landed in a field.

Joyce Westerman and all six children were interviewed by UFO investigators and gave a similar account.

The case has been detailed by veteran British UFO investigator Philip Mantle, as his most memorable investigation, as he prepares to retire from the UFO conference scene.

He said: ”Accounts of UFOs allegedly landing and their apparent occupants being observed as well is remarkably rare, but I investigated such an account with my colleague Mark Birdsall of the Yorkshire UFO Society.
