Mending a broken heart.

We’re talking about this literally. There isn’t really any science to help you guys if you’re going through some hard times. Sorry. 

ANYWAY! Let’s talk about what scientists have done recently! These guys have now successfully engineered tissue which beats, just like hearts. This has been done, not only in labs, but has been implanted in animals as well. So with this wonderful new technology, millions of people with heart problems could seek successful treatment. 

Trick is, like MOST research, it is not completely yet and does not completely resemble the human heart. Early versions of this tissue fell apart where as human heart tissue is elastic. It simply just isn’t as easy as sticking on more tissue to a heart like we do with skin. Hopefully, in the future scientists combine whatever technology they have to complete this method of heart transplanting. 

Do you even lift bro? Well not as much as these things!

Photo creds to Jeremy Hsu, this is an image of the artificial muscle

Oh mah gah. This world. So science is at it again, and today some random people just decided to bundle some fishing wire with thread and ended up creating an artificial muscle fiber that can potentially be 100 times stronger than our own muscles. THINK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES! Read the rest of this entry

Tehas.

So I went to Texas last week, expecting it to be pretty different from California,  however, it turns out that much of Texas is pretty similar to the area I live in California.  I understand that there are some other rural places that are different,  but everywhere has rural areas. Other than that, it wass an awesome trip with steak, NASA, and cajun food. Read the rest of this entry

Just some food for thought.

Have you guys ever just blanked out? Wondering weird things that most likely wouldn’t matter in your life? However, this is a common occurrence for me and sometimes I just feel like a philosopher.

Hey, what color is that rose? Red right? But what is red? Define red. What if the red I’m seeing is a different red from what you’re seeing? What if my red is your blue, and my blue is your red? This is just a basic one though, and can probably be disproved by science. However, It was something that I’d thought of when I was eight. Eight. Is that a time for philosophical thought?

Anyway, the point I’m trying to get across is that many people just live through their lives carelessly, which is not necessarily bad, but maybe by thinking about things like this, and opening our minds, we may be able to have a different outlook on life. In class right now, I’m trying desperately to analyze some words written by Charles Dickens, but I just can’t figure out the inner machinations of his mind. So I guess I just got lazy and thought, “maybe that’s not what Dickens was thinking at all, maybe its just coincidental that he wrote this masterpiece.” Kind of ridiculous, but it could be true, you never know. Anyway, thanks for reading guys, I hope this post helped you kick-start your mind!
