Can't just get it over with it-today we would get wiped out by noon-like playing in traffic. Upside- those settlements shares would be worth nothing too. A short squeeze? They read the PRs and progress and r/s date too-depends on GR to make it painful w/surprises-I don't think they're his target-maybe some dessert though.
FB doesn't want RENN- that's a fantasy so stop! Monetizing Android ads is the only thing the market wants. It's one good thing about RENN-the need to make the games mobile and that makes ads mobile.
A valuation is only as good as it's last comparable and Tumblr went for big money-read the deal Yahoo made and why. Cya @close.
I know you want this r/s (at the right time) -but it's not now. Probably at the end of the year when there is Visible continuing upward momentum-(that says stay away to the shorters) do you read those "offshoot" stories-"free hand" animal testing, new ways to engraft, even the cosmetics-this is the year-the data accumulated will come back fast and furious-the FDA will have whatever they need now to make qualified decisions-they needed to catch up. We move when the FDA moves you know that from the other SC cos. As far as the 20/40-w/this a/s-we see the results-no irrational exuberance either.
It's a wonderment that you don't know that she was legally blind, not 20/400 and not even in the same time period. And since Maurie writes a blog-there is no breach of confidentiality either.
the embryo, which is a collection of cells that could develop into a fully formed human, is destroyed, even though embryos in these procedures are left over from in vitro fertilization.
However, Mitalipov said the embryos created in his study, from skin cells and eggs, would not grow babies. That would have required additional technology, and it wasn't part of the study.
While cloning stem cells is a technical breakthrough, there's already a method of deriving embryonic-like stem cells that doesn't require the use of embryos at all: induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, said Dr. George Daley, who is director of the Stem Cell Transplantation Program at Children's Hospital Boston and an international expert in stem cells.
Induced pluripotent stem cells can come from any cell in the human body, including skin cells, so they don't have the moral quandaries surrounding them. Researchers have developed methods of inserting genes to "turn back the clock" on cells that have already specialized, so that they can turn into anything again. It doesn't matter what the cell was before; it can now be reprogrammed as any kind of cell researchers want.
The new study involves a complex method that requires women to donate eggs, and a demanding manipulation of cell components on a tiny scale, Daley said.
What remains to be seen is whether these cloned embryonic stem cells are more useful therapeutically than the noncontroversial induced pluripotent stem cells, and questions linger about their effectiveness.
What's the best type of stem cell
Ethical questions aside, researchers say they need to explore both embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells in order to see what works best for various diseases and conditions.
Safety concerns linger around induced pluripotent stem cells because they were first created inserting four new genes.
There's more if you're interested-Goog it.
here's the rest-
The same somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) technique was employed by researchers at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh to produce Dolly the Sheep, the first mammal cloned from an adult cell.
During SCNT, a donor cell nucleus is transferred to an egg cell whose own nuclear DNA has been removed. The egg develops into an early-stage embryo that is a clone of the donor, containing the same genes.
Stem cells taken from the embryo are "pluripotent", having the ability - with the right coaxing - to mature into any kind of tissue in the body, from brain to bone.
In the new study, reported in the journal Cell, scientists transferred nuclei from human skin cells into human egg cells.
They generated "blastocysts", early embryos consisting of a cluster of 150 cells, from which human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) were obtained and grown in the laboratory.
Scientists have previously cloned monkey embryos and mined them for stem cells, but until now been frustrated in their attempts to do the same with humans.
Lead researcher Professor Shoukhrat Mitalipov, from Oregon Health and Science University, said the finding offered new ways of generating stem cells for patients with dysfunctional or damaged tissues and organs.
"Such stem cells can regenerate and replace those damaged cells and tissues and alleviate diseases that affect millions of people," Prf Mitalipov said.
The stem cells demonstrated an ability to convert into several different cell types, including nerve, liver and heart cells.
Prof Mitalipov added: "Furthermore, because these reprogrammed cells can be generated with nuclear genetic material from a patient, there is no concern of transplant rejection.
"While there is much work to be done in developing safe and effective stem cell treatments, we believe this is a significant step forward in developing the cells that could be used in regenerative medicine."
I don't know what to say about this-except-"Rut Ro"
New stem cell 'milestone' revealed
One of the obstacles to human cloning has been cleared by scientists who have successfully used skin to generate embryonic stem cells.
The advance, described as a "milestone", is expected to aid the development of stem cell therapies that avoid fertilised human embryos.
But since it employs a cloning technique it is certain to fuel controversy over "Brave New World" science.
The US scientists said they were not interested in cloning humans and did not believe their methods could successfully be used in this way.
But the therapeutic cloning technique they employed would also be the start of the process of making duplicate humans.
It is the first time scientists have managed to create human embryos through cloning developed enough to provide stem cells.
Chen ain't doing no stinking merger, they'll take his Gameboy away. A better position?-he doesn't make money- Amazon? you have nothing to say? "RENN will go higher in merger...." so would any co. Take it on his word-before next earnings. LOL. Have fantasy weekend.
Just a reminder-the A/S is 2B shares. What happened is great but it doesn't produce revs yet. It still costs money to get to the end of the trials. The Market sings w/ Mick-"Time is on my side-yes it is". Trade or don't accordingly. Mostly, it's don't-all the legal stuff has got to be settled (the Market likes numbers)
Primo-it's his work and he leaks it well-so matter of factly. Second-GR couldn't pull off a "leak" legally-on a lot of levels. Ciao for now.
