There is a well-documented organ shortage throughout the world. For example, 3,000 kidney transplants were made last year in the #UnitedKingdom , but that still left 5,000 people on the waiting list at the end of the period. A lucrative trade in organs has grown up, and transplant tourism has become relatively common. While politicians wring their hands about sensible solutions to the shortage, including the nudge of opt-out donation, scientists using genetic manipulations have been making significant progress in growing transplantable organs inside pigs.

Scientists in the #UnitedStates are creating so-called “#humanpigchimeras” which will be capable of growing the much-needed organs. These #chimeras are animals that combine human and pig characteristics. They are like mules that will provide organs that can be transplanted into humans. A mule is the offspring of a male donkey (jack) and a female horse (mare). Horses and donkeys are different species with different numbers of chromosomes, but they can breed together.

In this case, the scientists take a skin cell from a human and from this make stem cells capable of producing any cell or tissue in the body, known as “induced pluripotent stem cells.” They then inject these into a pig embryo to make a human-pig #chimera . In order to create the desired organ, they use gene editing, or #CRISPR , to knock out the embryo’s pigs genes that produce, for example, the pancreas. The human stem cells for the pancreas then make an almost entirely human pancreas in the resulting human-pig chimera, with just the blood vessels remaining porcine. Using this controversial technology, a human skin cell, pre-treated and injected into a genetically edited pig embryo, could grow a new liver, heart, pancreas, or lung as required. ✋🏾More in comments👇🏾#Transhumanism #Nephilim #HumanAnimalChimeras

Repost from:@hedmanperformance - The NHRA tour is making there first stop in Las Vegas this weekend. Were excited for the 2017 Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals! Take a look at this nasty crash from the 2004 race. Richard Okerman turned on the win light in the Semi-final round but lost control shortly after the finish line. Thankfully he was able to safely exit the car under his own power.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a 2-acre national memorial in Washington, DC. It honors U.S. service members of the U.S. armed forces who fought in the Vietnam War, service members who died in service in Vietnam/South East Asia, and those service members who were unaccounted for (Missing In Action) during the War.⠀

The wall listed 58,191 names when it was completed in 1983; as of May 2015, there are exactly 58,307 names, including 8 women. Approximately 1,200 of these are listed as missing (MIAs, POWs, and others). Directories are located on nearby podiums so that visitors may locate specific names.⠀

The images I post are available to purchase in high quality photographic papers, metallic, and canvas, with several framing options. After placing an order, I will reach out to you and finalize any remaining details before shipping. Please reach out if you have any questions.⠀
