India's Fratricidal Mughals

The first six Moghul Emperors of India ruled in an unbroken succession from father to son for nearly 200 years, from 1526 to 1707. Which sounds impressive. But wait – this was not father to eldest son. There was no tradition of primogeniture, where the eldest son automatically inherits the crown.

Each of those father-to-son successions happened only after civil war and court intrigue and, yes, brothers murdering brothers…

Earliest Known Winery Found in Armenian Cave

Earliest Known Winery Found in Armenian Cave:

In the same Armenian cave where the oldest known leather shoe was found, barefoot winemakers were likely stomping grapes 6,000 years ago.

Amazingly, archaeologists found evidence for each step from grape to wine. There were withered vines, pressed grapes, a clay vat possibly used for fermentation, and clay-soaked pottery shards. They even found a cup for drinking the finished product!

With One Touch, This Chip Can Heal Organs

With One Touch, This Chip Can Heal Organs:

mindblowingscience:

Researchers have developed a tiny chip that, when applied to an affected area, can regenerate and repair failing body functions by turning skin cells into other types of healing cells.

The technology could mean a breakthrough in the treatment of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, as doctors could grow brain cells on a person’s own skin, harvest the cells and inject them into the brain using the chip.

It sounds like science fiction, but Dr. Chandan Sen, director of Ohio State’s Center for Regenerative Medicine & Cell Based Therapies says that the technology implies a huge realm of possibilities. “By using our novel nanochip technology, injured or compromised organs can be replaced,” Sen said in a press release. “We have shown that skin is a fertile land where we can grow the elements of any organ that is declining.”

The process, called Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), uses a chip loaded with specific genetic code or certain proteins; a cargo that’s been designed for cell conversion. The chip is placed on the affected area and a small electrical current is applied, creating channels in the patient’s tissue. This allows DNA or RNA to be injected into those channels, where they take root and reprogram the affected cells to begin the healing process.
