  • Stem cells - Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde: Hans Clevers at TEDxAmsterdam

    Produced by: http://www.fellermedia.com Camera & Crew: http://www.hoens.tv Stem cells are the foundation of all mammalian life, including that of man. Every organ in our body harbors its own dedicated 'adult' stem cells. These adult stem cells replace tissue that is lost due to wear and tear, or after trauma and disease. Adult stem cells are highly specialized and can only produce the tissue in which they reside. Examples are bone marrow stem cells (that make all blood cells), skin stem cells and gut stem cells. Even the brain harbors its specialized stem cells. Adult stem cells are easily 'harvested' from donors and can be transplanted. The great danger of stem cells rests in the fact that they not only fuel tissue (re)generation, but also are the cells that most easily transform into ca...

Affective neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp explains a modern approach to emotions, and how taking seriously the emotions of other animals might soon improve the lives of millions. Jaak Panksepp introduced the concept of Affective Neuroscience in 1990, consisting of an overarching vision of how mammalian brains generate experienced affective states in animals, as effective models for fathoming the primal evolutionary sources of emotional feelings in human beings. This work has implications for further developments in Biological Psychiatry, ranging from an understanding of the underlying brain disorders, to new therapeutic strategies.

Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Wilton, CT, based SSARIS Advisors is a manager of absolute return strategies, including both internal and external multi-strategy products, for qualified eligible investors. The firm manages approximately $2.5 billion for investors in the US, Asia and Europe as the alternative investment strategies platform of State Street Global Advisors, a subsidiary of State Street Corporation. The SSARIS philosophy is based on the belief that investment strategies can be organized into two categories - convergent and divergent - and that consistent absolute returns may best be achieved by combining these two distinct types of investment style. Convergent strategies tend to perform best in rational markets, and work when prices are driven by fundamentals. This style includes long only, long/short and arbitrage strategies. Divergent strategies tend to perform best in stressed markets, when fundamentals are largely ignored. Strategies include discretionary and systematic (trend-following and momentum based) global macro strategies. These so-called 'long volatility' strategies tend to be negatively correlated to other asset classes as well as other absolute return styles. The goal of combining convergent and divergent strategies is to achieve absolute returns regardless of the market environment. The target result is lower volatility, with strong potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns. In this Opalesque.TV Backstage video, Paul Lucek speaks about: * Applying statistical genetics algorithms to financial markets * Most hedge fund strategies are based on convergence, making them vulnerable to left tail risk * What are divergent strategies and how do they work? * How much assets should be dedicated to divergent strategies? * How to diversify within divergent strategies? * The importance to maintain "pure divergence" Paul R. Lucek is Director of Research, and a Senior Portfolio Manager, and a member of the Hedge Fund Investment Committee at SSARIS Advisors, LLC. Mr. Lucek's responsibilities include development and improvement of quantitative investment strategies including trading systems, portfolio allocation and risk control.

Produced by: http://www.fellermedia.com Camera & Crew: http://www.hoens.tv Stem cells are the foundation of all mammalian life, including that of man. Every organ in our body harbors its own dedicated 'adult' stem cells. These adult stem cells replace tissue that is lost due to wear and tear, or after trauma and disease. Adult stem cells are highly specialized and can only produce the tissue in which they reside. Examples are bone marrow stem cells (that make all blood cells), skin stem cells and gut stem cells. Even the brain harbors its specialized stem cells. Adult stem cells are easily 'harvested' from donors and can be transplanted. The great danger of stem cells rests in the fact that they not only fuel tissue (re)generation, but also are the cells that most easily transform into cancer cells. State-of-the-art and future perspectives of stem cell research are discussed with a focus on gut stem cells and colon cancer. Hans Clevers is the President of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and a world-renowned researcher into stem cells. From 1991-2002 Hans Clevers was Professor in Immunology at the University Utrecht and, since 2002, Professor in Molecular Genetics. From 2002-2012 he was director of the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht. He was the first scientist to identify intestinal stem cells and remains one of the leading researchers in this field. His discoveries have had significant impact in cancer as well as in regenerative therapy with stem cells and in vitro organ culture. Hans Clevers is the recipient of several awards, including the Dutch Spinoza Award in 2001. He obtained an ERC Advanced Investigator grant in 2008. He is Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur since 2005 and Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion since 2012.

Given an inherent subjective nature, emotions have long been a nearly impenetrable topic for scientific research. Affective neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp explains a modern approach to emotions, and how taking seriously the emotions of other animals might soon improve the lives of millions. Jaak Panksepp introduced the concept of Affective Neuroscience in 1990, consisting of an overarching vision of how mammalian brains generate experienced affective states in animals, as effective models for fathoming the primal evolutionary sources of emotional feelings in human beings. This work has implications for further developments in Biological Psychiatry, ranging from an understanding of the underlying brain disorders, to new therapeutic strategies. Panksepp is a Ph.D. Professor and Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University. His scientific contributions include more than 400 papers devoted to the study of basic emotional and motivational processes of the mammalian brain. He has conducted extensive research on brain and bodily mechanisms of feeding and energy-balance regulation, sleep physiology, and most importantly the study of emotional processes, including associated feelings states, in other animals. This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

A Fossilized Blood-Engorged Mosquito Is Found For the First Time Ever http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2013/10/a-fossilized-blood-engorged-mosquito-is-found-for-the-first-time-ever "In the 20 years since the movie Jurassic Park fantasized about how dinosaurs could be cloned from blood found in ancient amber-trapped mosquitoes, fossil collectors have been on the hunt for a similar specimen. Over the years, a few different groups of scientists have claimed to find a fossilized mosquito with ancient blood trapped in its abdomen, but each of these teams' discoveries, in turn, turned out to be the result of error or contamination." First Fossil of Blood-Filled Mosquito Discovered http://westerndigs.org/first-fossil-of-blood-engorged-mosquito-discovered/ "Through a series of events that scientists themselves admit was "extremely improbable," a mosquito that feasted on the blood of Eocene animals some 46 million years ago managed to die and become trapped in sediment, but remain in tact, all while carrying a belly full of blood - its last meal." How long does DNA last? http://www.theguardian.com/science/2005/jan/13/thisweekssciencequestions1 "Human DNA has been recovered from a Neanderthal fossil 70,000 years old.

Belly full, she died and sank." DNA has a 521-year half-life http://www.nature.com/news/dna-has-a-521-year-half-life-1.11555 "Few researchers have given credence to claims that samples of dinosaur DNA have survived to the present day, but no one knew just how long it would take for genetic material to fall apart. Now, a study of fossils found in New Zealand is laying the matter to rest - and putting an end to hopes of cloning a Tyrannosaurus rex." 'Jurassic Park' May Be Impossible, But Dino DNA Lasts Longer Than Thought http://www.livescience.com/23861-fossil-dna-half-life.html "In "Jurassic Park," scientists extract 80-million-year-old dino DNA from the bellies of mosquitoes trapped in amber.

Indeed, the metallic properties of uranium appear to be intermediate between those of silver and other true metals and those of the nonmetallic elements, so that it is not valued for structural applications.” About Nuclear Fuel Cycle https://infcis.iaea.org/NFCIS/About.cshtml “Nuclear Fuel Cycle can be defined as the set of processes to make use of nuclear materials and to return it to normal state. It starts with the mining of unused nuclear materials from the nature and ends with the safe disposal of used nuclear material in the nature.” Nuclear Fuel Processes http://www.nei.org/Knowledge-Center/Nuclear-Fuel-Processes “Nuclear power plants do not burn any fuel. Instead, they use uranium fuel, consisting of solid ceramic pellets, to produce electricity through a process called fission.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

February 22, 2017 Jim B. Tucker Bruce Greyson Edward F. Kelly J. Kim Penberthy http://www.uvadops.org Does some aspect of our personality survive bodily death? Long a philosophical and theological question, in the 20th century this became the subject of scientific research. Fifty years ago, in 1967, Ian Stevenson, then chair of UVA's Department of Psychiatry, created a research unit—now named the Division of Perceptual Studies—to study what, if anything, of the human personality survives after death. Dr. Stevenson's own research investigated hundreds of accounts of young children who claimed to recall past lives. In this Medical Center Hour, faculty from the Division of Perceptual Studies highlight the unit's work since its founding, including studies of purported past lives, near-death experiences, and mind-brain interactions in phenomena such as deep meditation, veridical out-of-body experiences, deathbed visions, apparent communication from deceased persons, altered states of consciousness, and terminal lucidity in persons with irreversible brain damage. As the division enters its second half-century, what are its research priorities and partnerships?
