No Comments
Nearly a decade of research showing that Rapamycin makes mice live up to 60% longer, scientists are trying it out as an anti-aging drug in dogs and humans. Researchers at the University of Washington’s Dog Aging Project gave rapamycin to …

communicationsConverting B52 to Arsenal plane would increase air to air missiles available to a networked F35 from two to about 100 missiles

No Comments
The Pentagon’s emerging “Arsenal Plane” or “flying bomb truck” is likely to be a modified, high-tech adaptation of the iconic B-52 bomber designed to fire air-to-air weapons, release swarms of mini-drones and provide additional fire-power to 5th generation stealth fighters …

cityResearch towards enabling minds as healthy and productive as twenty year olds in people who are 60-80

No Comments
Memory performance typically declines with age, as does cortical structural integrity, yet some older adults maintain youthful memory. We tested the hypothesis that superagers (older individuals with youthful memory performance) would exhibit preserved neuroanatomy in key brain networks subserving memory. …
