Anti-CD47 is just entering the first human trials at Stanford, and shows a lot of promise. We really should start seeing declining deaths rates and better quality of life.

Medical Milestone: Scientists Reset Human Stem Cells

justcauseisjustthat Re:Love this stuff (75 comments)

I can do that myself for cheap, and it would be more fun that way. I'm thinking a psychedelic with a heroine chaser.

Medical Milestone: Scientists Reset Human Stem Cells

justcauseisjustthat Re:hoooray (75 comments)

I can understand the cynicism , but allow the early adopters to pay the extremely high prices so that better and better, less expensive versions and techniques can be made.

The amazing thing about nature, it will always find a way to kill you! Sooner or later she's going to get you. Appreciate the beauty :-)

Medical Milestone: Scientists Reset Human Stem Cells

justcauseisjustthat Love this stuff (75 comments)

I love seeing these breakthroughs! But it's time to start making some jumps in the real world applications. I would pay $5k right now to get get rid of my presbyopia and myopia, hell, maybe even $10k if I had a guarantee of 20-30 yrs (free updates).

Is There a Creativity Deficit In Science?

justcauseisjustthat Lemmings rule.... (203 comments)

When you believe I need to get a grant and I need to publish this or that to make a major breakthrough you are just being a lemming.
Now take the teenager who had the desire to create a Pancreatic Cancer Test and didn't have all those rule drubbed into him, he just did it.
Those formally trained in research do splendid formal research, those with desire and no rules make amazing breakthrough.... Maybe :-)

The Executive Order That Led To Mass Spying, As Told By NSA Alumni

justcauseisjustthat Re:Executive Orders Need to Expire, and Quickly (180 comments)

If the president had to go through congress to do everything, nothing would get done. I think the Obama administration is still trying to get appointments through congress from 2 years ago.

On the other hand the expiration idea has merit.

Sony Agrees To $17.75m Settlement For 2011 PSN Attack

justcauseisjustthat So a victim gets sued by victims? (66 comments)

If the criminals (hackers) had physically (instead of virtually) broken into Sony, physically stolen customer information would Sony be responsible in that case also? At what point is it just a crime against both Sony and it's customers?

I can see people writing that the security should have been better, well the same can be true in a physical crime also. Just seems odd to me, and how do we define when a company/person is liable in this kind of situation where they are also the victim?

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

justcauseisjustthat Black box data streaming (503 comments)

Why haven't all airplanes been upgraded so the black box data is streamed to satellites/ground stations? It's so dumb to have to search for a airplane to find the data, that should be the fallback plan. Hey FAA, you listening?

Big difference iBeacon needs to be enabled per app, the user has control! Here the user was scanned without their consent, this new privacy feature is awesome.

AAA battery plus new electrocatalyst (cheap & durable)

justcauseisjustthat justcauseisjustthat writes  |  about three weeks ago

justcauseisjustthat (1150803) writes "As published in Nature http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2... last month Stanford researches http://news.stanford.edu/news/... have developed a new electrocatalyst that using just a AAA battery can convert water to hydrogen. With this cheap, abundant and durable solution could this pave the way to a hydrogen based transportation and power system. Could current cars be retrofitted to convert water to hydrogen inline , fill your gas tank with water, filter out impurities and use the electrocatalyst to make hydrogen in real time (no storage of hydrogen)."
