Permalink Japanese Professor's Message to World

John Leake | "Fraudulent use of gene therapy in healthy people an extreme violation of human rights" | Masayasu Inoue is Professor Emeritus of Osaka City University Medical School who specializes in molecular pathology. Reviewing his publishing resume, I wasn’t surprised that he has a longstanding interest in oxidative stress. His paper titled Mitochondrial Generation of Reactive Oxygen Species and its Role in Aerobic Life presents the following summary:

💬 The present work also describes that a cross-talk of molecular oxygen, nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide radicals regulates the circulation, energy metabolism, apoptosis, and functions as a major defense system against pathogens. Pathophysiological significance of ROS generation by mitochondria in the etiology of aging, cancer and degenerative neuronal diseases is also described.

Permalink After the moon, India launches rocket to study the sun

Following quickly on the success of India's moon landing, the country's space agency launched a rocket on Saturday to study the sun in its first solar mission. | The rocket left a trail of smoke and fire as scientists clapped, a live broadcast on the Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) website showed.  The broadcast was watched by more than 860,000 viewers, while thousands gathered at a viewing gallery near the launch site to see the lift-off of the probe, which will aim to study solar winds, which can cause disturbance on earth commonly seen as auroras.  Named after the Hindi word for the sun, the Aditya-L1 spacecraft took flight barely a week after India beat Russia to become the first country to land on the south pole of the moon. While Russia had a more powerful rocket, India's Chandrayaan-3 out-endured the Luna-25 to execute a textbook landing.  Prime Minister Modi is pushing for India's space missions to play a larger role on a world stage dominated by the United States and China. "He wants to recreate India's IT boom with space," said a government official who asked not to be named because he was not authorised to speak for Modi's office.

The station will conduct several maneuvers to approach the Moon until its orbit decreases to 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the Moon. The Chandrayaan-3's landing module Vikram separated from the station on August 17 and previously conducted two operations to lower its orbit.  The successful touch-down of the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s lander on the Moon will help lunar missions of other countries in the future, Indian Prime Minister stated.  Modi expressed confidence that all countries of the world, including the Global South, are capable of achieving such results.

Permalink Superhumans with ‘Yeti blood’: These people are able to withstand extreme conditions, and science might finally know how

Vikram Sharma | A new Indian study has uncovered the secret of the Sherpa people’s genes that allows them to survive in the most extreme conditions | As he climbed Mount Everest’s Lhotse ice wall, Sameer Nicholas Patham struggled to breathe despite his supplementary oxygen. Here, where temperatures drop to -30° Celsius and the ambient oxygen is 70% lower than we breathe at sea level, every step was torture.  But his Sherpa friends calmly and easily climbed past, carrying an average weight of 16kg. “They are superhumans,” recalls Sameer, who experienced firsthand what he describes as the incredible feats of the Sherpas, a Tibetan ethnic group globally known for their natural mountaineering skills.  Yet if the same Sherpas were to visit Varanasi and fall sick, the hospital’s doctors would find that they had high blood pressure and low hemoglobin compared to average plains dwellers. Often such Sherpas were prescribed unnecessary medication. And though Chinese and American scientists had isolated the gene that allowed high-altitude adaptation, a biochemical analysis was always lacking – until a recent deep study by a team of Indian scientists investigated how Himalayans have survived in their challenging habitat for centuries.  The Sherpa people are world-famous for high-altitude living and mountaineering. According to the 2011 census, there were some 16,012 Sherpas in India. Though there are other high-altitude Himalayan ethnic groups, the Sherpas dominate the portering profession to the extent that porters are commonly called “Sherpas” by outsiders.  Other high-altitude ethnic groups include the Tibetans, inhabiting the Tibet Autonomous Region, Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan and Yunnan in China; they are also found in India, Bhutan and Nepal. There are 182,685 Tibetans in India, scattered in Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Ladakh, Karnataka and Uttarakhand. Then there are the Lepchas, an aboriginal tribe of Darjeeling and Sikkim, in the Himalayas, calling themselves “Rong Migyit” (Lepcha people). They number 47,331. Additionally, the Bhutia tribe is scattered around the Himalayan region and number 229,954.

Kit Knightly | Or, “how people are blinded by meaningless statistics”. | Now, first off let’s be clear – we haven’t had the “7 the hottest days” in the last 100,000 years since July 4…or, more accurately, there is absolutely no way for anyone to reliably know if we have or not. Actually, think about what they’re saying when they make this claim. They are claiming that they know, for a fact, the global average temperature to two decimal points over the last 36 million days. A couple of things to bear in mind here before we go any further.

1 – Humans have only had the ability to accurately measure the temperature of anything for maybe four-hundred years.
2 – Official “global temperature” records only began in 1880.
3 – Beyond that point, we only have partial, local and pretty inaccurate readings back to the mid-17th century.

That’s 400 years, give or take. So, how do climatologists get the data for the other 99,600 years? Well – they guess.

Professor Maiken Nedergaard receives the prestigious medical Anders Jahre Award 2023 for her ground-breaking brain research which has led to the discovery and description the brain’s cleaning system, the glymphatic system. With the award comes a grant of NOK 1 million. | While we sleep, the brain is busy cleaning up the waste matter that accumulates during activity. This process is a so-called waste clearance system, and it is known as the glymphatic system. The system makes sure the brain cleans itself by removing waste matter in the form of proteins. If the proteins are allowed to accumulate and stay in the brain, they can lead to reduced brain cell function and increased risk of dementia.  Professor Maiken Nedergaard from the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Copenhagen, who first discovered and described the system in 2012, has spent the past years exploring the system in depth. Her research has changed our understanding of how the brain works and what goes wrong when we get sick, but also how we may be able to provide better treatment in the future.  Now she receives the prestigious Anders Jahre Award for Medical Research honouring outstanding international research. It is awarded once a year at a ceremony at the University of Oslo.

Permalink How Did the COVID Pandemic Response Harm Society? A Global Evaluation and State of Knowledge Review (2020-21)

ABSTRACT | Early in the Covid pandemic concerns were raised that lockdown and other non-pharmaceutical interventions would cause significant multidimensional harm to society. This paper comprehensively evaluates the global state of knowledge on these adverse social impacts, with an emphasis on their type and magnitude during 2020 and 2021. A harm framework was developed spanning 10 categories: health, economy, income, food security, education, lifestyle, intimate relationships, community, environment and governance. The analysis synthesizes 600 publications with a focus on meta-analyses, systematic reviews, global reports and multi-country studies. This cumulative academic research shows that the collateral damage of the pandemic response was substantial, wide-ranging and will leave behind a legacy of harm for hundreds of millions of people in the years ahead. Many original predictions are broadly supported by the research data including: a rise in non-Covid excess mortality, mental health deterioration, child abuse and domestic violence, widening global inequality, food insecurity, lost educational opportunities, unhealthy lifestyle behaviours, social polarization, soaring debt, democratic backsliding and declining human rights. Young people, individuals and countries with lower socioeconomic status, women and those with pre-existing vulnerabilities were hit hardest. Societal harms should challenge the dominant mental model of the pandemic response: it is likely that many Covid policies caused more harm than benefit, although further research is needed to address knowledge gaps and explore policy trade-offs, especially at a country-level. Planning and response for future global health emergencies must integrate a wider range of expertise to account for and mitigate societal harms associated with government intervention.

Permalink RE.: Appointment of the New WHO Chief Scientist, Jeremy Farrar

Elena Panina (Елена Панина) | The appointment of the new WHO chief scientist, Jeremy Farrar, a Briton, went unnoticed in Russia (neither TASS nor RIA reported it) on 13 December. He is a well-known figure in his own circles and a landmark, as they say. Farrar is the director of the Wellcome Trust, a giant centre for funding medical and biological research (turnover in 2020: £464 million). An influential healthcare businessman whose name is regularly mentioned in conjunction with both Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates. Knight of the Order of the British Empire, knighted in 2019. And one of the most staunch critics of the laboratory origin of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strain that caused the COVID-19 pandemic. It was largely through Farrar's efforts that such theories were branded as conspiracy theories in scientific journals and respectable media. And anyone who did not share the official position was subjected to unprecedented silencing and discrediting by the medical establishment. And now, from spring 2023, this gentleman will begin overseeing the WHO's Office of Scientific Affairs, "bringing together the best minds in science and innovation around the world", as the organisation's website says. This means that the suppression of dissent in global medical science is reaching a new level. And the chances of ever finding out the truth about the origins of SARS-CoV-2 are becoming vanishingly small. (DeepL.com)

Permalink Scientists reconstruct ‘handsome’ face of Ramses II

Researchers used CT software to “digitally unwrap” the mummy of one of ancient Egypt's greatest pharaohs | Egyptian and British scientists have unveiled a facial reconstruction of Ramses II, having used computer tomography (CT) software to “digitally unwrap” the mummy of the famous Ancient Egyptian pharaoh. The joint scientific project allowed historians for the first time to observe what the ruler looked like at different points in his life.  The researchers say they used earlier CT scans of the pharaoh’s mummy and applied them to analysis software. They were then able to differentiate between the skull and other materials used during the embalming process and produce a 3D rendering of the skull. They then applied the average facial muscle layer measurements believed to be appropriate for ancient Egyptians to reconstruct the pharaoh’s face. 💬 "This is the only scientific facial reconstruction of Ramesses II based on the CT scan of his actual mummy,” explained professor Sahar Saleem of Cairo University, who led the project, adding that previous attempts were “mostly artistic, based on his mummy’s face.”

Permalink World’s Oldest DNA Found in Greenland. Reveals Arctic’s Lost Nature

Some two million years ago, now barren and inhospitable Greenland lived up to its name, with elephant-like mastodons roaming its green forests. | The world’s oldest known fragments of DNA have been found in the permafrost of Cape Copenhagen at the northern edge of Greenland, offering an extraordinary glimpse at the extraordinary ancient ecosystem of the world’s largest island. The analyzed genetic material dates back at least two million years, which is nearly twice as old as the mammoth DNA from Siberia which was the previous record holder.  The samples, gathered from more than 130 species ranging from giant mastodons to ants and plants, and identified after several years of painstaking research, showed that Greenland, today one of the world’s most desolate landscapes of ice glaciers and snow-covered mountains, was once covered by a forest of poplar and birch trees inhabited by wildlife such as reindeer, rodents and geese, and washed by warm coastal waters which provided a home to marine species such as horseshoe crabs and green algae. The reconstructed ecosystem has no modern analogue, the researchers said, describing it as a 💬 “mix between species that you don't see living together anywhere in the world.”  Extracting DNA from sediment allows researchers to track the ecology and evolution of prehistoric biological communities. It was pioneered by Danish researchers from the Lundbeck Foundation Geogenetics Center at the University of Copenhagen and relies on the binding of ancient DNA to mineral surfaces. In the early 2000s this method was tested on a chunk of Siberian permafrost and facilitated the extraction of DNA from plants such as willows and daisies which lived 400,000 years ago.  It can be estimated that the temperature in Greenland back then was between 11 and 19 degrees warmer than today, and therefore the two million-year-old ecosystem in North Greenland also provides a detailed insight into how nature reacted to climate change.

Permalink New Marine Fossil Found in Outback Queensland

Three amateur palaeontologists have discovered the remains of a 100-million-year-old long-necked marine reptile at an outback Queensland station. | In an Australian first, the complete skeleton of an ancient plesiosaur, an extinct marine reptile, was discovered at a sprawling remote property in the McKinlay region in what has been described as the Rosetta Stone of marine reptile palaeontology.  A team of museum palaeontologists travelled to the remote site to collect the fossil of the elasmosaur, a plesiosaur that lived alongside the dinosaurs. The Elasmosaurus lived in the Eromanga Sea, which covered large parts of inland Australia between 140 and 100 million years ago. There are well over a hundred species of plesiosaurs currently known worldwide—some had long necks and small heads, and some had short necks with giant heads. Elasmosaurus came to the water’s surface to breathe air and had slender teeth for catching fish, crabs and molluscs. Scientists have discovered plesiosaur fossils with stones in the stomach area, showing they swallowed stones (called gastroliths) to either grind up food in their stomachs or as ballast to aid in diving.  Queensland Museum Network CEO Jim Thompson, PhD, said the find would help paint a comprehensive picture of Queensland’s Cretaceous marine reptiles.

A boy king once consigned to ancient obscurity became the most famous of pharaohs (SN: 12/18/76).  It all started on November 4, 1922, when excavators led by Carter discovered a step cut into the valley floor of a largely unexplored part of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. By November 23, the team had uncovered stairs leading down to a door. A hieroglyphic seal on the door identified what lay beyond: King Tutankhamun’s tomb.  Tutankhamun assumed power around 1334 B.C., when he was about 10 years old. His reign lasted nearly a decade until his untimely demise. Although a minor figure among Egyptian pharaohs, Tutankhamun is one of the few whose richly appointed burial place was found largely intact.  An unusually meticulous excavator for his time, Carter organized a 10-year project to document, conserve and remove more than 6,000 items from Tutankhamun’s four-chambered tomb. While some objects, like Tut’s gold burial mask, are now iconic, many have been in storage and out of sight for decades. But that’s about to change.

Summary: The climate “catastrophe” isn’t what it used to be. Circa 2013 with publication of the IPCC AR5 Report, RCP8.5 was regarded as the business-as-usual emissions scenario, with expected warming of 4 to 5 oC by 2100. Now there is growing acceptance that RCP8.5 is implausible, and RCP4.5 is arguably the current business-as-usual emissions scenario. Only a few years ago, an emissions trajectory that followed RCP4.5 with 2 to 3 oC warming was regarded as climate policy success. As limiting warming to 2 oC seems to be in reach (now deemed to be the “threshold of catastrophe”),[i] the goal posts were moved in 2018 to reduce the warming target to 1.5 oC. Climate catastrophe rhetoric now seems linked to extreme weather events, most of which are difficult to identify any role for human-caused climate change in increasing either their intensity or frequency.
