The Humanion Maddi Thurgood Christmas Appeal 2017: Please Help Maddi's Mother Raise Another £81,709 to Help Maddi Get Better: Almost There

|| October 24: 2017|| ά. This is the Story of Maddi Thurgood, that The Humanion first published on September 06, 2017. Here, we republish it as Maddi's Mother and Family are still well short of the £224,000, that they must raise for the Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience Research Team, who must have this fund in order to conduct vital research to find a gene therapy to help Maddi! The Humanion is publishing this, as The Humanion Maddi Christmas Appeal 2017, the first ever appeal we have ever done, in Political Economics in the hope that all those involved in our cities and financial and business houses and places, everyone, every Reader, for The Humanion has readers across the globe, from multi-trillion dollar companies to multimillion, from Ford to Toyota to Nationwide Building Society to start with, will do everything in their power to find a way to help. What we are appealing is that you all look into your charitable donation budgets and locate the tiny, tiny some of money, just £81,709, this little girl requires. As of November 17, Maddi's Fund is at £224,000-£142,921= £81,709 still to be raised. According to 2011 Census this many millions of us are in the UK: 63,182,000 and out of all of us Maddi is the only human being known to have this devastating condition. One out of 63,182,000. If we divide £81,709 still to be raised by 63,182,000, that gives a figure of 00.00129 pence per head for the nation to raise this money! Will you not rise to help Maddi’s Mother raise this £81,709? She has managed to reach £142,921! Please, do all you can and let this Mother, this Child, This Family and the Researchers at the University of Sheffield know that United Kingdom is here to support them. Please, tell everyone you know of this appeal and help raise this vital fund before Christmas.

The Humanion

Sylvia Plath

Gold leaves shiver
In this crack of time;
Yellow flickers
In the shrill clear sun;
Light pirouettes
In ballet dress,
While blue above
Leaps the sheer sky.

-------------------------

Brief gold glitters
In the gutters;
Flares and flashes,
Husky rushes

-------------------------

And in that moment
Silent, cold,
Across the lawn,
Dull pools of gold.

Emily Dickinson

The Brain- is wider than the Sky-
For--- put them side by side--
The one the other will contain
With ease---- and You---- beside---

The Brain is deeper than the Sea----
For---hold them---Blue to Blue---
The one the other will absorb----
As Sponges----Buckets---- do---

The Brain is just the weight of God---
For-Heft them---Pound for Pound---
And they will differ---if they do----
As Syllable from Sound----

Christina Rossetti

Somewhere or other there must surely be
The face not seen, the voice not heard,
The heart that not yet-never yet- ah me!
Made answer to my word.

Ring My Heart

I asked for you to ring my heart more often that that: But you know, ringing the heart is like having a dream; one can not and does not control it: Then who does: It's our souls: Are you okay: Yes, I am. Are you: Yes. So go on: I rang you now because I wanted to touch your hand before I leave: Leave. Leave for where: Touch the wall: Touch the wall: Yes just do it: See, I can feel your hand. But how: See, we suddenly took a trip down the tectonic-plane's high-season waving and sloped down the valley of void between spaces of different Universine Domains as if we are rolling down a hill, except it's a void between the blank of spaces and now we are waiting at the Gate-Magnetismic to open so that we can energise-through it into the intended Universine Domain. And from here we stand closest to yours because when we are in this Tectonic Plane Slope, that exists between parallel Universine Domains, the Domains literally become one dimensional for our purposes because we have become part of the void: Part of the void but I can feel your hand and touch:

That is because matter or energy or time or space or void we are souls, that exist in all and beyond and in resonance to all so that even in the void our souls exist. Therefore, what you and I are feeling is our souls in reach: I see but what if when you pass through the Gate: Then we enter the other Universine Domain and soon we become part of that, which we won't find in one dimension so that the distance between the domains, that you and I are in now becomes Imparsian Light-Megalith-Millennium and yet the time it will have taken for us to reach between these two domains is a trillionth of a second: But how is it possible: Because once you manage to get out of a domain onto one of the network of Tectonic Planes, crisscrossing the Universe, you are beyond time and space in a void that, neither has space nor time, which means you are closest to the entire Universe at one instance for the entire Matter Universe is covered in the membrane of time-space like a baby in the womb of the void, the void, that reaches the entire physiology of the Universe, made of time and space, holding matters and energies inside them. Then you choose where to go and you get to a Gate and Energise onto the Next Domain in no time: I see, but how far is an Imparsian Light-Megalith-Millennium: Readmore

Universana Event Horizon: What is That Fiery Explosion in the Distant Galaxy

|| November 14: 2017: Queen's University Belfast News || ά. Minds, spread across different places of earth, make up this international team of researches, based at research institutes from Finland, Sweden, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Chile and the US.  And they, like learner-worker-bees, work together in Astronomy, pulling resources together and seek out answers arising in the vast darkness of the heavens to the questions they are able to gather together. And these astronomers, part of the research team, based at Queen’s University Belfast, have suddenly discovered a new type of fiery explosion in a distant galaxy.

The explosion, called, PS1-10adi, seems to prefer active galaxies, that house supermassive black holes consuming the gas and material around them. Leading this international team of researchers, Dr Erkki Kankare, from the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s, is the Lead Author of the study, which has just been published in Nature Astronomy. Dr Rubina Kotak, Professor Stephen Smartt and Dr Ken Smith from Queen’s are co-authors of the study, which is advancing knowledge in this area on a global scale. Using telescopes on La Palma and Hawaii, Dr Kankare detected an explosion, that was so energetic, it must have originated from one of two sources. Readmore

Theosophy There is Jesus Christ in Christmas: The Market Seeking to Sell Christmas Forgets All About It: And What is Jesus Christ: Unless He Stands for One Aspiring Aiming Striving and Showing to Be the Best Possible Version of Humanity on Earth: Of Compassion: Of Mercy: Of Grace: of Kindness: Of Care: Of Thoughtfulness: Of Faith: Of Hope: Of Understanding: Of Giving: Of Sharing: Of Wisdom: Of Love: Of Humility: Of in Short Humanity

|| November 14: 2017|| ά. And, thereby, Christmas is never and can not ever be about what 'trifling' gifts one gets from one's family and friends and, by which, feels entitled to 'moan and groan' about it the rest of the year! For should we not stop and ask: what kind of a 'gift' something is, if it is wanted, expected, desired, wished and, even, demanded from others? And, if that expectation is not met, it is derided, belittled and ridiculed. Let us take a 'taughtology': out of the endless list, just one, 'Surviving Christmas'. What is this about? Why does one need to Survive Christmas: does oxygen take a break feeding life? Does hydrogen take a break feeding the ecology? Does the moon take a break? Does the earth take a break? Do the rivers, the lakes, the bees and birds, skies and stars take a break from their designated 'properties'? No, they do not. Than, we, being humans, why should we need a 'break', to survive from the very practise of our 'properties', which is nothing but our humanity: which are, are they not, made of compassion, mercy, grace, kindness, care, thoughtfulness, faith, hope, giving, sharing, wisdom and so on? Why do we find it tiring, the practise of these high-qualities of humanity? Because it is not 'fun'?

And here, must we not stop and ask: why do we want to Survive Christmas? Why do we not want to express our humanity whenever and wherever the 'opportunity' arises for us to do so? As already said, there is Jesus Christ in Christmas and that means, like all other religious faiths, there is opportunity in this celebration for us to see how high we are and can be if we aspire to that height of humanity and choose to seek to try and achieve that state of the height of humanity? On the other hand, to demand a 'gift' is the ultimate and lowliest state of humanity, that we can be but the market wants us to simply do that and then write, repeating and regurgitating a continuous verbal abuse of an 'epic' about trifling things and matters. Life, humanity and the state of humanity should wake us up, challenge us and make us scream against the clichéd ways of thinking, taughtological ways of looking at and and seeking to show the world and humanity and its existence on this earth. atever we do and wherever we are. Let us seek to try to strive to be and to do to change to make better. Readmore

Geology New Forecast Model Provides Earliest Ever Awareness of Floods and Droughts Across the World

|| November 12: 2017: University of Reading News || ά. Predicting when rivers across the world are likely to flood months before they do could soon be possible because of the development of a unique new forecasting system. Researchers at the University of Reading have worked with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts:ECMWF to create the first ever global, long-range river flow forecasting model. It indicates where and when rivers are likely to have unusually high or low flow, up to four months in advance. This could mean much earlier awareness of floods and droughts than has previously been possible.

The forecasts became publicly available from November 10 as an addition to the Global Flood Awareness System:GloFAS, which is co-developed by ECMWF and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission as part of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service. GloFAS currently offers flood forecasts up to 30 days in advance and is used by governments around the world and aid organisations like the Red Cross.
The new model is currently undergoing a rigorous evaluation, but tests indicate it has the potential to save lives by allowing authorities and aid agencies around the world to plan and prepare flood relief efforts earlier than ever before. Other potential uses include water resource management, agriculture and disaster risk reduction. Readmore

Astronomy Wonder: Ask: Seek: Find: Challenge: To Advance

|| November 05: 2017: Queen's University Belfast News || ά. A giant planet, the existence of which was previously thought extremely unlikely, has been discovered by an international collaboration of astronomers, including, Queen’s University Belfast researchers. Dr Christopher Watson led the group from the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s, which teamed up with researchers across the globe including the Universities of Warwick, Cambridge and Leicester, along with the Geneva Observatory, the German Aerospace Centre and the Universidad de Chile. This led to the discovery of the unusual planet NGTS-1B, the largest planet compared to the size of its companion star ever discovered in the universe.

NGTS-1B is a gas giant six hundred light years away, the size of Jupiter and orbits a small star with a radius and mass half that of our sun. Its existence challenges theories of planet formation, that a planet of this size could not be formed by such a small star. According to these theories, small stars can readily form rocky planets but do not gather enough material together to form Jupiter-sized planets. The planet is a hot Jupiter, at least, as large as the Jupiter in our solar system, but with around 20% less mass. It is very close to its star, just 03% of the distance between Earth and the Sun and orbits the star every 02.6 days, meaning a year on NGTS-1B is as long as 02.06 days. The temperature on the gassy planet is approximately 530°C or 800 Kelvin. Readmore

April Aurora in the Lake Eden Eye: Were You at ISS You Would Have Seen This Magnificence

This still shows a stunning aurora captured from the International Space Station. Auroras are a space weather phenomenon that occur when electrically-charged electrons and protons collide with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere. The dancing lights of the aurora provide a spectacular show for those on the ground, but, also, capture the imaginations of scientists, who study the aurora and the complex processes, that create them.

Astrophysics The Chemical Make-Up of the Sun and the Perseus Cluster of Galaxies is Similar

|| November 15: 2017 || ά. It appears that the hemical make-ups of the Sun and a cluster of galaxies are similar. The observations made by the Soft X-ray Spectrometer:SXS flown on the X-ray astronomical satellite ASTRO-H Hitomi, show that the proportions of iron-peak elements in the Perseus cluster are nearly identical to those measured in the Sun, unlike previously believed. The new research results suggest that the solar abundance of the chemical elements represents the average values of the neighbouring universe.

In addition, this study provides new insights into the mechanism of Type Ia supernova explosions, which are thought to be the major producers of the iron-peak elements. The SXS developed jointly by NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency:JAXA and their partners in Europe has provided an unprecedented detail of chemical make-ups of the hot gas in the neighbouring universe.  The results are published in Nature online on November 13. A cluster of galaxies contains hundreds of galaxies orbiting within hot, higher than millions of degrees Kelvin, plasma. Readmore

The Moon The Lunasphere: There Once Was

|| October 29: 2017 || ά. Looking up at the Moon at night, Earth’s closest neighbour appears in shades of gray and white; a dry desert in the vacuum of space, inactive and dead for billions of years. Like many things, though, with the Moon, there is so much more than what meets the eye. And, there's always going to be so much more; always, there's going to be much more unknown than known. The greater part of the Matter Universe, which is for all human purposes, 'infinite' because it is not infinite but finite, remains in the realm of 'not unfolded yet' so that it will take imsillions of trillions of billions of millions of mega-millennial-light-years to unfold: simply to become time into time-dust, falling onto and spreading into becoming space. A discarded snake-skin of the entire Matter Universe is what awaits its end.

But how long is this time: in human answers: we can not even bring ourselves to 'grasp' this long a time. And, therefore, there's always going to be much more in the unknown than known. So humanity can not and must not stop and keep on learning......keep on learning.......keep on learning for humanity is still a crawling baby with less than two per cent of its genome expressed so far so that 98 per cent of the genome has not yet been expressed and come into playing their roles. And here, research completed by NASA Marshall Space Flight Centre Planetary Volcanologist Ms Debra Needham in Huntsville, Alabama and Planetary Scientist Mr David Kring at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, Texas, suggests that billions of years ago, the Moon, actually, had an atmosphere.

Palaeontology Hello Dorset: This is Durlstotherium Newmani: Speaking From 144 Million Years in the Past: Can You Hear Me: If You Do: Just Make Sure You Understand: Once You Exist You Do It for Forever: Make It Count

|| November 12: 2017: University of Portsmouth News|| ά. Fossils of the oldest mammals related to humanity have been discovered on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset. The two teeth are from small, rat-like creatures, that lived 145 million years ago in the shadow of the dinosaurs. They are the earliest undisputed fossils of mammals belonging to the line, that led to human beings. They are, also, the ancestors to most mammals alive today, including, creatures as diverse as the Blue Whale and the Pigmy Shrew. The findings are published in the Journal, Acta Palaeontologica Polonica, in a paper by Dr Steve Sweetman, Research Fellow at the University of Portsmouth and Co-authors from the same university.

Dr Sweetman, whose primary research interest concerns all the small vertebrates, that lived with the dinosaurs, identified the teeth but it was University of Portsmouth undergraduate student, Mr Grant Smith, who made the discovery. Dr Sweetman said, “Grant was sifting through small samples of earliest Cretaceous rocks collected on the coast of Dorset as part of his undergraduate dissertation project in the hope of finding some interesting remains. Quite unexpectedly he found not one but two quite remarkable teeth of a type never before seen from rocks of this age. I was asked to look at them and give an opinion and, even, at first glance my jaw dropped! Readmore

Between and Beyond the Two Sets of Doors at the Airport Departure Lounge

Life in which, as if one suddenly finds oneself woken up at an airport departure lounge, where there are two sets of doors that are always open: one, through which people come in and the other, through which people depart. The only thing that is striking is no one that comes in through the entry door knows where one is coming from nor where one is heading but every one knows that they are waiting to leave, to go, to depart. And that one can see, being there, that no one that has come in here fails to do that: to come and wait to depart and finally departing. And this fact is striking, too, that no one enters with any baggage and everyone leaves, as they came, with nothing. The door through which one enters the departure lounge can be seen as the 'door' with a curtain instead of a real door, so that through it one can and one does come back to oneself, wakes up in reality, when waking from a dream. And when woken up one, in the cases of the majority of one's dreams, does not remember anything. In this case, at the departure lounge, however, waking up inside it, one does not remember anything whatsoever, at all. Although, they retain a sense of something missing, as is they had a void inside them where something used to be or as if they were part of something, but they cannot understand this and the related sense of a longing... Rabindranath Tagore puts it this way... if only I had known what this hurt I have is about I would have told you...

And the other door through which people depart can be said to be the same door except it is a shut door through which only spirits can pass through one way so they cannot come back, through which people go back to themselves waking up into a reality from dreams; because this door, when departing does not open at all so that the departed are unable to return back and 'wake up' back onto reality of life that goes on in the departure lounge. So that, one thinks of la vida es sueno: life is a dream. Living life is when one rises as if from a dream onto a 'reality' that one does not recognise nor does one remember about one's other reality from which one fell into this dream that brought them into an existence that seems real to them which, when in dream, one does not remember either. And when they leave the departure lounge they depart from this 'dream' that until leaving felt like real and to the people they left behind, it still feels like real. Readmore

Humanics

 

 

This entire networks of human learning, that are taking place across the metaphorical physiology of humanity across our Mother Earth can only be imagined as an Infinite Bee-Hive of Learning, where all these hive-units of learning are seeking to light up their own little hive but all these lights together are raising the Symphony of the Light. Can you, Dear Reader, imagine, hearing and experiencing this Symphony of the Light? The Humanion exists to inspire each Beethoven, each Sibelius, each Elgar, each Rachmaninoff, each Shubert, each Mendelssohn, residing in each human soul to rise to hear this Symphony of the Light so to tell the World and to tell Humanity that there exists no border nor frontier but this light, but this ceaseless endeavours of seeking, searching and following the light so to hear this Symphony of the Light. There is nothing more beautiful than this. Think of what they have just done, at the Karolina Institute in Sweden, only a few days ago: they have found out how to go about creating therapies to cure Huntingdon Disease! How astonishing is this! And works like this are going on across our Mother Earth.

For this Eternal Light or this state or characteristic or quality of humanity, that makes us the way we are so that we cannot help but raise questions and seek the light of their answers, binds us into an indestructible oneness. Look, can you find a place on earth, a country, where they have failed to build universities, even if the poorest of countries, you look and how beautifully you will see the lights are shining in their universities. This shows the indestructible state of humanity, that simply will not just sit down and waste away but raise questions and seek the light of their answers. And this state of humanity has brought us here, here and today.

Yes, we have billions of problems, wars, famines, conflicts, hunger, poverty, malnutrition, hatred and almost an infinite range of sufferings but look at the world and see how many hundreds of thousands of institutions, if not millions, simply existing in this search of this light...for human minds cannot but hear the prospect of this Symphony of the Light. And just being able to feel,  even, this 'prospect' of the Symphony, simply takes the souls out venturing into the unknown...to know...to find out...to light up, to make visible for the Universe otherwise, without the light, is terribly a dark dark place, literally. For people might think the astronauts living at the International Space Station see so much...but they would be wrong. At night, the astronauts look out and find this dense infinite darkness spread through infinity where lights are  simply like nano-fireflies spread between light-years and being eaten away into the depth of that darkness.

An Instance of Symphonic Work of Learning: The Future of Humanity

|| November 16: 2017: Lund University News || ά. The largest study of cardiac arrest in the world: Or An Instance of Symphonic Work of Learning: The Future of Humanity. Now, who is conducting: human ingenuity and its eternal thirst for seeking to find answers and means and mechanics to advance the human condition. 70 hospitals in 15 countries, 1,900 patients and three years of study, this is the framework for the world’s largest clinical study of cardiac arrest, TTM2, which is about to begin. The study is run by Dr Niklas Nielsen, Researcher at the Centre for Cardiac Arrest at Lund University and Medical Consultant at the General Hospital in Helsingborg, Sweden.

The question to be answered once and for all is: Does cooling after a cardiac arrest really work? Induced hypothermia, that is, cooling the body and brain down to 33 degrees, could be described as standard practice for treating cardiac arrest worldwide. The treatment is based on two clinical studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 and is the only treatment, which has shown positive signals for increased survival and reduced risk of permanent brain damage. “The method of cooling the body down to 33 degrees is based on two relatively minor studies conducted almost 20 years ago. Since then, we have shown that it is equally effective to maintain a steady 36 degrees; however, our study in 2013 focused solely on comparing two levels of controlled hypothermia, reaching as low as 33 degrees or just below normal temperature, 36.” says Dr Niklas Nielsen.

New Research Shows Where in the Brain the Earliest Signs of Alzheimer’s Occur

|| November 16: 2017: Lund University News || ά. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have, for the first time, convincingly shown where in the brain the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s occur. The discovery could, potentially, become significant to future Alzheimer’s research while contributing to improved diagnostics, In Alzheimer’s, the initial changes in the brain occur through retention of the protein, β-amyloid, beta-amyloid. The process begins 10-20 years before the first symptoms become noticeable in the patient. In Nature Communications, a research team headed by Professor Oskar Hansson at Lund University has now presented results showing where in the brain the initial accumulation of β-amyloid occurs.

It is in the inner parts of the brain, within one of the brain’s most important functional networks, known as, the default mode network. “A big piece of the puzzle in Alzheimer’s research is now falling into place. We previously did not know where in the brain the earliest stages of the disease could be detected. We now know which parts of the brain are to be studied to, eventually, explain why the disease occurs.” says Associate Professor Sebastian Palmqvist, at Lund University and physician at Skåne University Hospital. The default mode network is one of several networks, each of which has a different function in the brain. It is most active, when we are in an awake quiescent state without interacting with the outside world, for example, when daydreaming. The network belongs to the more advanced part of the brain. Among other things, it processes and links information from lower systems. Readmore

Carbon Nano-Tubes May Pose Cancer Risk

|| November 16: 2017: University of Edinburgh News || ά. The University of Edinburgh researchers have reasons to suggest that carbon nano-tubes, used in manufacturing could pose the same cancer risk as asbestos. These findings highlight the potential risks of being exposed to carbon nano-tubes, used in the manufacture of incredibly strong but lightweight materials. The study could offer new insights into the early stage development of cancer caused by asbestos fibres, which are a similar size and shape.

Carbon nano-tubes have a long, hollow structure with a diameter about 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair, but can reach up to several centimetres long. Because carbon nano-tubes are similar in size and shape to asbestos fibres, researchers wanted to investigate whether they have the same harmful effect on our lungs. Studies with mice found that, like asbestos fibres, certain types of nano-tubes caused long-term inflammation in the lungs. Over time, this inflammation led to the formation of tumours, that mirrored cancers linked to asbestos. Readmore

How to Beat Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria: By Better Use of the Immune System Itself: New Breakthrough Research

|| November 14: 2017: Queen's University Belfast News || ά. Researchers at Queen’s University Belfast together with the University of Vienna have discovered that treatment for the antibiotic resistant bacteria Klebsiella Pneumoniae could lie within our bodies’ natural defences. Multidrug resistance of microbes poses a serious global threat to human health. Globally, 700,000 people die every year due to antimicrobial resistance. The bacteria Klebsiella Pneumoniae causes a number of infections, including, sepsis, urinary tract infections and pneumonia.

As Klebsiella becomes more resistant to antibiotics, these common infections are becoming, increasingly, difficult to treat, which has led to the World Health Organisation recently declaring an urgent need for new therapeutics to be discovered for Klebsiella. Professor Jose Bengoechea from the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast and one of the lead researchers explains, “Klebsiella Pneumoniae is of particular concern as it can cause infections, such as, bladder infections and pneumonia and has mortality rates of 25-60 per cent.

Scientists Create Tracking Nano-Agents to Illuminate Very Small Diseased Tissues

|| November 12: 2017: Nanyang Technological University Singapore || ά. Polymer nano-agents, that can ‘light up’ tiny areas of diseased tissues, that conventional methods fail to detect, have been created by a research team, led by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The nano-agents, known as, semiconductor polymer nanoparticles:SPNs, can store light energy from sources, such as, sunlight, near-infrared light or, even, light from mobile phones and then emit long-lasting ‘afterglow light’.  The research team tailored highly sensitive SPNs to track down and lock on to diseased tissues in the body, such as, cancerous cells, sending back near-infrared signals, which can be received and interpreted by standard imaging equipment.

Scientists and doctors now have more time to look at test results, as the nano-agents continue self-illuminating and their light intensity decreases by half only after six minutes. Alternatively, if stored at -20 degree Celsius, the sample will maintain its results for a month, making it convenient for other diagnostic experts to interpret and review the results at a later time. When tested in mice, the method provided results 20 to 120 times more sensitive than current optical imaging methods and 10 times faster in showing up diseased tissues. Unlike conventional optical afterglow agents, that are less bright and contain rare-earth heavy-metal ions, that are toxic to biological cells, the new nano-agents are, also, organic, biodegradable and contain biologically benign ingredients, that are non-toxic.

The Future of Medicine: The Future of Hearteogenics: Studying the Effects of Space-Flight on Human Muscle Tone

|| November 10: 2017: University of Southampton News || ά. A grant from the UK Space Agency offers scientists at the University of Southampton the ability to carry out the first study of the effects of space flight on human muscle tone. The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a well-known side-effect of space travel. The project findings will not only help astronauts on future space missions deal with this, but will, also, benefit people on Earth by feeding back into research around muscle-wasting conditions.

Understanding more about what happens to muscles, when they are not used will give insights to help find the most effective ways of reducing and reversing the effects of disuse in astronauts or pathology in patients. The tone of a resting human muscle is affected by tissue called fascia, as well as, the tissue within the muscle itself and together these shape the human resting muscle tone:HRMT) system. This project is first to study the HRMT system and the effects of weightlessness, termed as, microgravity, in space.
Professor Maria Stokes, of Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation at the University of Southampton, has been awarded £191,892 for her team’s part in this international project to monitor the muscle health of astronauts on long-duration missions on the International Space Station:ISS.

Anti Microbial Resistance: Leading Scientist Urges the UK and EU Action Plans to Focus on Clear Message and Set Criteria to Judge Outcomes to Effectively Deal with AMR

|| November 12: 2017: University of Birmingham News || ά. One of the UK’s leading microbiologists is concerned that confusing language and a lack of specific objectives are hampering the global fight against antibiotic-resistant infections. Professor Laura Piddock, of the Institute of Microbiology and Infection, at the University of Birmingham, and her colleagues have written a report for the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antibiotics. It calls for policymakers to focus on measurable objectives and simple language, among other things.

A summary of the report, ‘Implementing WHO, EU and UK AMR strategies and action plans: has the world lived up to the challenge?’, was published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases on November 09. The World Health Organisation:WHO submitted a European Strategic Action Plan on Antibiotic Resistance to the WHO European Regional Committee in 2011. The plan highlighted seven strategic objectives as guidance to national governments in European member states to address antibiotic use and resistance.  In response, the EU and the UK government set out to devise their own plans to address the recommendations in the WHO policy document.

Molecular Biology Immune Response Mechanism: New Research Finding Raises Hope for Allergy Treatment

|| November 16: 2017: University of Edinburgh News || ά. Scientists have made a fundamental discovery about how our body’s immune system clears harmful infections. Edinburgh researchers have identified a previously unknown mechanism by which the responses of key cells of the immune system are regulated. Researchers say that the finding could inform research into improved treatments for allergies or chronic inflammatory diseases, such as, lung and liver fibrosis.

The research team made the discovery by studying how the immune system in mice fights off parasitic worms. These parasites provoke a strong immune response, enabling researchers to carry out in-depth studies of the defence mechanisms involved. They found that chemical signals from infecting organisms activate cells, called Th2 cells, causing them to multiply and express a key protein, known as, EGFR. The cells then migrate from the lymph nodes, where they are stored, to the site of infection, where they release defence proteins to expel the parasites. Readmore

Hemmanity Is

It tells us wordlessly, it shows us palpably, it directs us tangibly, it touches us, neither by its senses nor by ours, directly, as light does, as darkness does, it moves us almost involuntarily and it makes us respond, form relationship and become better for it; this is what we find in the Animalium and this is what, a parallel, and resonant version of humanity and we cannot but fail to notice it, acknowledge, respond and interact with it, we are calling Hemmanity. Hemmanity is as if a parallel, resonant, mirror-translational, relational humanity exists outside humanity itself that shows it what it is like and unlike.

This Cat came to say hello as I went to a green for a walk on October 20, 2015. This cat did not know me but came to me and 'communicated' her friendliness by way of coming to me, going around me touching and pressing her fur on my legs and then doing a great display of lying down straight, then lying on her back, then turning backward on her back and making a circle with her body and, so many other gymnastics. She stayed there and let me sit next to her and stroke her and speak to her. Readmore

|| November 14: 2017 || ά. Dear Reader, there are many people, who would not or do not believe that everything comes from imagination and this piece is to try to persuade them to challenge this view so that they can clearly see that everything does come from imagination. The little story, described on that image above, where did it come from? The Author of this piece did not write it until he was creating this modified image. And suddenly this story appeared, out of imagination for there was no other place it could have come from and in which appeared three characters: Mummy, the Little Girl and a book, titled, Where They Make Rainbows Into Aeroplanes. Now, where did this title come from, because it was not a real book, that the author knew of?  Imagination, it all came from imagination. And did the Author know the story of that book? No. Where is that story residing now? Imagination. And now let us demonstrate how it resides in imagination and how its comes to life from that imagination. And here, begins the story or the Book, Where They Make Rainbows Into Aeroplanes. Now, this is going to be a story and a story book and now it exists in reality, in which it did not exist until today.

''Now, Dearest Gemma, sit here and read this book, that I have stolen from the Book Corner and here are some pens, pencils and paper for you to occupy yourself with.'' said Aark, Gemma's oldest sister, of five siblings, standing in front of her office desk by the window, at a basement of a large building. Gemma took everything with a deliberate show of combined displeasure and annoyance for she was not at all pleased to have been the victim of her entire school getting flooded in that morning so it did not get to open at all and so that her Mother had to just force Aark  to take Gemma with her to her work place. She, however, could not help but look at the cover of the book, that contained an image of an aeroplane made with rainbows being used in such a way that, she found fascinating. Yet, in a few seconds her attention went outside the window, where light fell from the sky and it looked as if a luminous flower has bloomed on the window, when one looks from the dim and dark basement room.

Now Horatio: Leaving Aside the Havens: It Appears There are Many Things on Earth Than are Reported in the Papers

|| November 16: 2017: University of Liverpool News || ά. Plant scientists at the University of Liverpool have shown new insights into the mechanisms, that allow certain plants to conserve water and tolerate drought. The research, which is published in The Plant Cell, could be used to help produce new crops, that can thrive in previously inhospitable, hot and dry regions across the world. Drought resistant plants, such as, cacti, agaves and succulents, make use of an enhanced form of photosynthesis, known as, crassulacean acid metabolism or CAM, to minimise water loss.

Photosynthesis involves taking carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to convert into sugars using sunlight. Unlike other plants, CAM plants are able to take up CO2 during the cooler night, which reduces water loss and store captured CO2 as malic acid inside the cell, allowing its use for photosynthesis without water loss during the next day. CAM photosynthesis is regulated by the plant’s internal circadian clock, which allows plants to differentiate and pre-empt day and night and adjust their metabolism accordingly. However, relatively little is known about the exact molecular processes, that underpin the optimal timing of CO2 being stored and released in this unique way.

That Does Not Die

In Hampshire in an autumn wood the squirrel I found that came to say hello
In New Hampshire life’s voices went rippling human joys and sorrows and
In Union Square I saw the sun painting the green leaves with photon-paints
Allwhere life is a song written and sung in many a form in many a rainbow
A rainbow it is always allwhere marking the same shape of life-expressions

It is always in units of atoms
Units of photons and of cells
DNAs RNAs and neurons
Always the same rises ee falls
Always it is the song of cells

And the Empire State Building raised a spectacle in Manhattan skyline as
The traffic lit the air in all its expressions in the evening and in Scotland I
Saw heather and hyacinth in Swansea the light and its spread the same
Light the same song written and sung in many a form in many a rainbow
And it is the same that drives us to strive to stretch to reach to risk to rise

It is always magnetic
Always electric and
Chemical and active
Biochemical it is as
It shapes the cell-rise
 

I saw grace in human faces in Prague in Granada in Dhaka in Rome or in
London Manchester or York and found moss on city brick walls and saw
Butterflies on squeezed in greens of tiny spaces in town gardens and saw
Waters mining for life poetry in silence music in the ferns climbing onto
The trellis of light heard seagulls’ cries as human babies in all-everyday

In everyday momentary miracles
I saw life’s rainbow biochemistry
Unfolding noughts in paperboats
It is always the same song of love
That never dies and forever lives

New Study Suggests a Role for Gene Regulation in Schizophrenia

|| November 16: 2017: University of Helsinki News: William Hennah and Mari Kaunisto Writing || ά. A recent study focusing on Familial Schizophrenia in Finland demonstrates that genetic variation in a known risk gene, called, NDE1, can affect both gene expression levels and medication usage of psychoactive drugs used to treat major mental illnesses. Researchers have previously shown that genetic variation in the NDE1 gene and the related DISC1 network increases risk for Schizophrenia in a Finnish family cohort. Now the same family cohort with close to a thousand affected individuals has been studied further.

A research team, led by researchers from the University of Helsinki, took advantage of data on gene expression levels determined in 64 individuals. In addition, they analysed prescription medication information, which has been collected over a ten-year period for all the affected individuals. Based on these data, the multinational research team noticed that variants within the NDE1 gene both changed the level of expression of a large number of genes and correlated with the likelihood that a patient was to cease using specific psychoactive medications. The results of this study were recently published in the Royal Society journal Open Biology. Readmore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Political Economics

The Humanion does not do and will not publish any news item of any company, regardless of how 'giant' they are or might be, if their 'website' does not have any 'humanity' expressed, presented and celebrated on them. They might say that they are a 'Team' but there is not a single mention of any human being in that company. No, thank you.  A company must show this, as well as, display a valid address, contact details and telephone numbers on their website. A company must show its commitment to gender-equality and diversity. Bombastic, replicated terms, excessive abuse of clichés and meaningless expressions are all 'good', they might think but it all put and drive people off. The Humanion does not do 'mechanistic, it does not do machine: it exists to celebrate and foster humanity. The Humanion exists to fight dehumanisation. That is why here we have Recycle Technologies and here are the humanity, that is the company and this company does not have any better and more worthy 'resources' than this: this very humanity. Here is another Company and see how they have presented their human face:  ABIVAX. Or Here is another Organisation: Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust:RAFT, that shows that it is not run by machines but humanity.

Biovica to Present New Study Results at a Cancer Conference of Its DiviTum Blood Test Found to Reduce Waiting Times for Evaluating Breast Cancer Treatment

|| November 14: 2017 || ά. Results from a study of 142 women with newly diagnosed metastatic breast cancer will be presented by researchers from Lund University at the world’s biggest Breast Cancer Conference in San Antonio, USA, taking place on December 05-09. The study demonstrates that the DiviTum blood-based biomarker can provide more accurate prognosis than today’s standard methods. With imaging methods used for evaluating the effect of treatment, it takes about three months to evaluate whether the given therapy is effective or not. The new study demonstrates that DiviTum can accurately predict outcome, progression free and overall survival, already, after one month.

This dramatic shortening of the evaluation window can be key, when making decisions to continue or change treatment and can contribute significantly to improved patient outcome. In addition, using a blood-based biomarker reduces the need for invasive biopsies. DiviTum measures the activity of the enzyme thymidine kinase:TK, which reflects cell proliferation and associates strongly with tumour growth. At diagnosis in the study, low DiviTum values correlated significantly and independently with improved progression free and overall survival. During treatment, DiviTum was significantly associated with outcome at each of four time points and onwards, baseline, one, three and six months. Readmore

Research Highlights Ethical Sourcing of Materials for Modern Technology: Taking Fairtrade Principle to the Source

|| November 10: 2017: University of Exeter News || ά. Researchers from the Camborne School of Mines have identified methods to predict the environmental and social cost of resourcing new deposits of rare earth minerals used in the production of mobile phones, wind turbines and electric vehicles. The research team is pioneering techniques to develop the equivalent of a ‘Fairtrade’ model for ethically and sustainably resourcing raw materials, that are crucial in the manufacturing of next generation technologies.

In the research the researchers highlight the pivotal role geoscientists can play in developing ‘life cycle assessment techniques' for potential new deposits of rare earth elements, to meet the growing worldwide demand. The research is published in the journal, Elements. Mr Robert Pell, PhD student at the Camborne School of Mines, based at the University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus in Cornwall and Co-author of the paper, said, ''It is important that we understand the environmental costs of generating these rare earths so that we can select the right projects to support, but also, research and improve the areas of production with a greater environmental cost.

The Future is Arising Out of Liverpool: A Future Constructed on the Earth of Common Good

|| November 09: 2017: University of Liverpool News || ά. Liverpool should position itself as an international ‘social city region’, according to a major new report by the University of Liverpool’s Heseltine Institute for Public Policy and Practice. The Institute’s Dr Alan Southern and Dr Matt Thompson, alongside social investor, Ms Helen Heap of Seebohm Hill, analysed the scale, scope and value of the social economy to the region between October 2016 and June this year. They found that, in Liverpool alone, there are 696 social organisations, employing 18,500 people, generating £01.5 billion of revenue and holding net assets worth £02.9 billion. Across the whole city region, there are 1,400 social organisations, accounting for 02.2% of all registered companies.

Dr Southern said, “There is clearly huge potential for the Liverpool City Region social economy to generate jobs and to offer solutions in helping resolve the region’s many challenges, if given the right support from government, the necessary governance capacity and the tools to help it grow.” The report authors define the social economy as charities, social enterprises, co-operatives and self-help initiatives, that produce and distribute goods and services. The category includes ‘anchor’ institutions, such as, universities and housing associations, who hold a clear social purpose and are 'able to spend their revenues, procure services and deliver contracts in ways, that make the whole economy more social'. They are organisations independent of the public sector, who hold a 'social objective' as their primary purpose, rather than private profit. Readmore
