Im Definitely Getting Less Vitamin D Since Ive Been Cooped Up IndoorsBut What Does That Actually Mean? – Well+Good

If Im telling the truth, Ive been outside my apartment maybe three times this weekand thats a generous estimate.

Since I started strictly working from home, Ive accepted the fact that the inside of my not-so-spacious New York apartment is where youll find me for the foreseeable futurewhich also means my former Florida gal days of soaking up ample vitamin D are far, far behind me.

But it turns out Im not the only one lacking in vitamin D, and its not just a WFH-specific problem either. According to Michael A. Smith, MD, director of education at Life Extension, many people in the U.S. have insufficient vitamin D levels (more on the difference between deficient and insufficient below), and they have for some time.

These insufficiencies are nothing new to 2020, Dr. Smith says. Its more the product of an issue that were starting to recognize now.

In fact, a recent study showed that up to 30 percent of aging adults are actually vitamin D deficient, and sunlight alone is not likely enough to increase their vitamin blood levels to any significant degree, says Dr. Smith.

These insufficiencies are nothing new to 2020.

Lacking vitamin D isnt the only way I recognized spending more time at home might be affecting my health. Given the heightened stress of 2020 in general, I havent been totally feeling like myself. So, I decided to chat with Dr. Smith about what I can do about it.

Stress can zap your body of all vitamins and minerals, Dr. Smith says. Stress is an activator of your system. It turns on your drive for fight or flight. And, since theres a vitamin D receptor in every type of cell in the human body, he explains, its connected to many of those systems.

According to Dr. Smith, the easiest first step to get my well-being on track is supplementing, so after chatting with him, I picked up Life Extension Vitamin D3 to try for myself. Supplementation can bring you into optimal range quicker, and sustain you there over time, Dr. Smith adds. Sign. Me. Up.

Although somestudies suggest as much as 42 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in vitamin D, Dr. Smith says examining vitamin Dinsufficiencyis more useful for correcting the problem.

There are two words: deficiency and insufficiency, which are the two official medical words for low levels,' Dr. Smith says. Most people dont meet the medical definition of deficiency, instead, there is a widespread insufficiencyso were really just talking about people who are suboptimal. And suboptimal isnt your goal here.

My biggest question was: How can you tell when youre actually insufficient? According to Dr. Smith, the signs are different for different people, but they tend to show up during cold and flu season and can include cold symptoms, fatigue, and mood changes, among other things. People tend to be lower in mood in fall and winter months, but it might be even a little worse for someone who is insufficient, Dr. Smith says.

I didnt feel like I could pin-point my exact vitamin D insufficiency signals (my mood goes up and down all the time), but that doesnt mean there might not be consequences later on, according Dr. Smith. Its important to understand that vitamin D is such a key nutrient for so many body processes, he says. You need sufficient levels of it to support heart, immune, and bone health. Heres to taking measures now that my 50-year-old self will thank me for.

Now that I know the importance of vitamin D for both my immediate and long-term health, I recognized I needed to make a few changes. Off the bat, Dr. Smith suggested trying to reduce the stress in my life. Stress is a zapper of energy and micronutrients, he says. For people who deal with it, its not uncommon to truly be [vitamin D] insufficient because their body is just on all the time.

Some of the best ways to reduce stress, according to Dr. Smith, are going outside and exercisingtwo things that on their own also help to increase your vitamin D levels (and two things I could definitely do more of).

Another way to target stress is to use supplements to promote better relaxation. In addition to vitamin D (which can also help maintain healthy blood pressure), Dr. Smith suggested I take a multivitamin (for overall health), melatonin (to ensure Im getting high-quality zzzs), and Life Extension Enhanced Stress Relief, which helps to raise more relaxation hormones and battles that always-on feeling, Dr. Smith says.

Coming out of my chat with Dr. Smith, I have two main goals: Sticking to an easy-but-effective supplement routine (already on it), and spending at least 30 minutes a day outside. A walk around my city block might not be the same as a sunny stroll down the beach, but Im about to be well on my way to Florida-levels of vitamin D.

Astroscale raises $51 million in Series E funding to fuel its orbital sustainability ambitions – TechCrunch

On-orbit service and logistics startup Astroscale has raised a $51 million Series E funding round, bringing its total raised to date to $191 million thus far. The Japan-based company has been focused on delivering new solutions for orbital end-of-life meaning ways to make orbital operations more sustainable by offering easy ways to safely de-orbit spacecraft after the end of their useful service life, clearing up some of the growing orbital debris problem thats emerging as more companies create satellites and constellations.

Astroscale has since expanded its mission to also include extending the life of geostationary satellites another key ingredient in making the orbital operating environment more sustainable as we look toward a projected exponential explosion in orbital activity. The startup announced earlier this year that it was acquiring the staff and IP of a company called Effective Space Solutions, which was in the process of developing a space drone that could launch to provide on-orbit servicing to large, existing geostationary satellite infrastructure, handling tasks like refueling and repairs.

ESS has formed the basis for Astroscale Israel, a new international office for the globe-spanning Astroscale that will be focused on geostationary life extension. Todays funding was led by aSTART, and will be used to help the company continue to establish its global offices and increase the team to more than 140 people.

Astroscales end-of-life orbital debris-removal technology is set to get its first demonstration mission sometime in the second half of this year, with a launch aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket. The system uses two spacecraft that find and latch on to target debris to be de-orbited.

Vipin Narang on the global nuclear landscape: hype and reality | News – MIT News

Even a casual observer of the contemporary global strategic environment will concur that nuclear weapons are very much back in the picture as several countries including the United States and China seek to modernize their arsenals and develop new capabilities. With many nuclear powers pushing their envelope and, in some cases, luck, and the future of arms control under stress, the current nuclear environment is defined by several challenges around proliferation and escalation risks.

To understand them better, The Diplomat spoke to Vipin Narang, associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and member of MITs Security Studies Program. Narang, also a nonresident scholar in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, is author of Nuclear Strategy in the Modern Era (Princeton University Press, 2014).

In your opinion, what are the top three nuclear challenges the world faces today?

First, vertical proliferation, and specifically renewed great power nuclear competition and arms racing, threatens to upset decades of trends that enhanced strategic and crisis stability. Russian and Chinese modernization programs largely driven by Americas large conventional and nuclear counterforce capability and the unfulfilled fantasy of American national missile defenses aim to survive an American strike and penetrate defenses. That has led to a variety of programs, including hypersonic glide vehicles, nuclear-powered cruise missiles, and the oldie but goodie building up mobile capabilities. The US threatens to respond in kind with the withdrawal from the INF Treaty and the prospect that New START is not renewed with Russia. All of these developments threaten to disturb strategic stability.

Second, horizontal proliferation. However, we face not just the looming risk of adversarial proliferation states such as Iran but also of allied proliferation, in states such as South Korea, Germany and even Japan, due to concerns surfaced during the Trump administration that the United States may not indefinitely provide credible extended deterrence. In addition, a third class of states, frenemies like Saudi Arabia, who have promised to acquire nuclear weapons if their primary adversary (Iran in this case) does are also flirting with the idea and capabilities for at least a nuclear hedge. We may be on the cusp, in the next decade or two, of a cascade of new nuclear weapons powers.

Third, 75 years after the last wartime use of nuclear weapons, todays nuclear weapon states seem less chastened by the prospect of nuclear use and escalation and are increasingly pushing the line against other nuclear weapons powers, attempting to break free of the constraining effects of being deterred. The last year has seen some disturbing firsts: India bombing the undisputed territory of another nuclear weapons power at Balakot for the first time in history, and Turkey an American ally which hosts US nuclear weapons at Incirlik firing at American troops. The problem with the threat that leaves something to chance, is that it leaves something to chance. And as nuclear states push the line against other nuclear states, even if they do not want a war war may find them. That is, nuclear powers are increasingly running the risk that they may stumble into a war, and that would put us in uncharted territory.

You have warned against Trumps North Korea strategy (if one can call it that) and have been consistently pessimistic about the prospect of denuclearization there. As a new administration takes over in January, what advice would you give the new president about Kim Jong Un and his nukes?

I have long argued that Kim Jong Un will not voluntarily surrender his nuclear weapons program and taking it away by force as some like John Bolton [the former US national security advisor] continued to advocate even after North Korea tested an ICBM and purported thermonuclear weapon is exceptionally dicey. But that does not mean that we cannot try to slow down the growth of the program, seek caps on certain capabilities, and keep the rhetorical fiction of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as an end goal that we accept is unlikely to ever be achieved.

In fact, it appears that this deal Yongbyon in exchange for some sanctions relief was on the table at Hanoi. If verified and completed, that would have shut off North Koreas only known source of plutonium and tritium production, and a nontrivial proportion of its uranium enrichment. This could have slowed the growth of the nuclear program and shaped the future composition of the force by starving it of further plutonium and potentially tritium (for thermonuclear weapons). But Trump walked away, claiming it was too small a deal. Instead, we got no deal and Kim Jong Un continues to expand and improve his nuclear and missile force.

I suspect we will look back at Hanoi with regret, though it is possible a similar deal may resurface. If it does, I believe we should take it. Slow, cap, rollback, and eliminate (even if we never get there) for corresponding measures, in tandem, is a sensible formula to manage a nuclear North Korea.

We recently saw North Korea flash a new missile capability during its annual parade. Any thoughts on what the missile may portend in terms of where Kim sees his nuclear capabilities going in the future?

For a year, Kim Jong Un had been promising a new strategic system, and on October 10 we discovered that it was a new heavy transportable liquid fuel ICBM, based on its Hwasong-15 ICBM. This new missile is one of the worlds largest mobile liquid fuel missiles and the key feature is the large payload it can seemingly deliver, such as potentially penetration aids or multiple warheads, to defeat American national missile defenses which may not work well today, but which adversaries such as Russia, China and North Korea fear may work tomorrow.

This new missile was not a surprise, and largely represents a continuing evolution of North Koreas growing missile and nuclear capabilities. It is designed to solve one of two North Korean strategic problems: penetrating American missile defenses. There were questions about whether North Korea could develop warheads compact enough for MIRVs (multiple warheads on a single missile), but the size of this missile obviates some of that problem your cars can be bigger if you build a gigantic garage. However, the missile is so big and slow, and takes so long to potentially fuel, that it may exacerbate the other problem survivability but I think we should fully expect that North Korea is also working on capabilities to address that concern, such as a mobile solid fuel ICBM that is easier to hide and prompter to launch. In fact, we may have seen tantalizing hints of that capability as well in the parade, and that would represent a bigger leap for the program. In any event, these developments and improvements which are still away from being operational are precisely what normal nuclear powers do, and further suggests that Kim Jong Un has no intention of surrendering his nuclear weapons program.

We have heard a lot from the Trump administration of late about Chinas nuclear ambitions. How do you assess the trajectory of Chinas nuclear weapons and delivery platforms, as well as its doctrine?

Lets start with the facts: China has maybe 200 nuclear weapons that can range the continental United States, very few of which are deployed during peacetime. The United States, by contrast, has well over a 1,000, depending on your accounting, that are ready within minutes to range mainland China. This does not even account for the warheads in the stockpile that can be quickly uploaded to American ICBMs and SLBMs which are not fully MIRVd under New START. So even a doubling of Chinas strategic nuclear force still leaves it multiples lower than the United States and Russia.

My main reaction to Chinese nuclear modernization is: What took it so long to start? For decades, it lived with a posture of plausible retaliation with maybe two dozen ICBMs that could range the continental United States. With growing conventional and nuclear counterforce capabilities, and the unrelenting pursuit of national missile defenses which can in combination threaten to neutralize Chinas second strike capability, by eliminating a large portion of the ICBMs and relying on missile defenses to intercept the residuals the question is why China only started investing in mobility and numbers and penetration aids/hypersonics in the last decade or so. To me, all of these developments are Chinas delayed effort to guarantee assured retaliation. Chinas massive buildup in conventional short-range ballistic missile capabilities obviates the need for it to rely on nuclear weapons in a theater scenario, though scholars such as Caitlin Talmadge have pointed out that we cannot sleep on the risks of inadvertent Chinese nuclear escalation. But, I see continuity in overall strategy, and a delayed effort to develop the capabilities and deployment patterns mobility, penetration, SSBNs to implement that strategy with greater assurance.

What do you make of the hype around hypersonics? What about claims around artificial intelligence and nuclear command and control?

The pursuit of hypersonics is again driven by the unfulfilled fantasy of working national missile defenses. Presently, long range missile reentry vehicles, and certainly maneuverable reentry vehicles, which are decades-old technology, are perfectly sufficient to penetrate American missile defenses. And all of these reenter the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds. The advent of the new generation of hypersonics are actually slower than long range reentry vehicles. But some are air breathing and can maneuver and porpoise at very high altitudes in the event missile defenses ever work. So, at least in the medium term, Im a skeptic that these capabilities fundamentally alter the strategic balance. Russia and China do not face a penetration problem at the moment, so hypersonic glide vehicles only have marginal value at the moment.

Similarly, there is a lot of hype over AI and command and control, but a lot remains to be seen whether it affects a states ability to maintain command and control or disrupt it. AI may help solve some detection and ISR problems, but the general cat-and-mouse game of emerging technologies and counter-responses is a decades-old phenomenon.

What do you think about future arms control measures for emerging technologies?

Like all arms control measures, the empirical record suggests they will emerge and be adhered to when both states view them as being in their interests, which is unsatisfying and tautological but also the reality. States with an asymmetric advantage in a particular technology will oppose limits on it, while those that fear it will seek those limits. The zone of overlap generally emerges when both or all sides perceive a benefit in capping or limiting that capability either amongst themselves or collusively to prevent the diffusion of technology to other states. I am not an arms control skeptic so much as an arms control realist.

How do you assess the prospects of the New START treaty being extended, if Trump is reelected next month?

Ultimately, I do think New START will be extended no matter who wins the election. I think the Trump administration is attempting to play chicken with New START to try to pressure Russia into limiting, for example, its tactical nuclear weapons capability. But ultimately, a New START extension is in Americas interest: arms controllers love it because it is arms control and counter-forcers should love it because it provides a cap and accounting on the systems they have to eliminate. The only constituency that opposes New START are arms racers who believe that an arms race with Russia is good and easy to win. But in the current economic climate, there may be little appetite for a renewed arms race, or even persistent uploading of warheads from the stockpile. And Russia has an interest in New START for similar economic and management reasons. It is possible that a second Trump administration would only extend New START for one year and attempt to negotiate something stronger or multilateral in that year he may in fact try to do this before the election itself. I do not think there is any chance of China joining a multilateral equivalent of New START it would either be an invitation for it to build to parity with the US and Russia, or force it to agree to inequitable limits, which it will never do. But I do think we will see an extension of the bilateral New START at the end of the day. But whether it is for one or five years remains to be seen.

Would a Biden administration, come January, roll back some of Trumps nuke modernization plans?

The Democrats, in general, seek a safe, secure, and effective nuclear deterrent for the United States and Americas allies at an affordable cost. Although there was a loose bipartisan consensus for the modernization program, there are some components that may be revisited. For example, the ICBM replacement, the ground based strategic deterrent, could be forsook for another life extension of Minuteman III, which may save some cost. I do think certain capabilities, such as the low yield SLBM and the nuclear sea launch cruise missile, could be rolled back. But those are not so much part of the modernization program as particular capabilities that the Trump administration believed filled a deterrent gap, which I suspect many in a Biden administration remain unconvinced ever existed

To your mind, have India and Pakistan learnt the wrong lessons about escalation after Indias February 2019 Balakot air strikes and Pakistans retaliatory action?

I hesitate to judge what lessons either side may have privately taken away from Balakot, but at least publicly both sides seem to underestimate the role that pure luck played in keeping the crisis from further escalating. I think, for example, that if Indian fighter pilot Abhinandan Varthaman had been killed when his MiG-21 was shot down, or if he had died in Pakistani custody, or if there was a delay in his return and Prime Minister Narendra Modi carried out an alleged surface-to-surface missile strike, the crisis could have quickly escalated as domestic political pressure to hit back boiled over. Even in this case, where neither state wanted a broader war, both sides do seem to underestimate the risk that they came very close to stumbling into one. In general, Indias frustration with Pakistans continued use of terror against the Indian homeland is leading it to see how far it can push the line against another nuclear weapons power. That frustration is understandable, but it does not mean that pushing the line is risk-free.

I am disappointed you did not ask me about my hobby horse: the sanctity of Indias No First Use (NFU) declaration! At this point, no one believes the absoluteness of Indias NFU declaration though it sort of remains official doctrine including, most importantly, Indias government itself.

Digitalisation, distribution and biotech: Rabobank talks next gen food tech innovation –

Earlier this month, FoodBytes! Pitch announced that 45 companies will participate in the start-up discovery platform, which provides corporate leaders and investors exposure to a group of innovative start-ups, with opportunities for deeper interaction and networking throughout the year.

The FoodBytes! Pitch competition, which has been running for five years, will be staged virtually in 2020 due to COVID restrictions.

Participants were chosen from nearly 340 submissions from across the globe and six European applicants made the cut.

A predominant focus among start-ups based in Europe is digitising the supply chain, from farm to fork, Rabobank noted.

Greven said that this is reflective of the challenges faced by food corporates, who have had to evaluate their distribution strategies in recent years.

According to a report from Rabobanks supply chain experts, many US and European food companies have been ramping up discussions on distribution strategies in the past few years. The main reason for this is a rise in logistics costs due to an increasing variety of distribution channels and stricter fulfilment requirements set by customers. In Europe specifically, as corporates look to drive cost efficiency, the outsourcing of food logistics is once again growing, the investment expert told us.

Start-ups are bringing innovative solutions to the table, as reflected in the latest FoodBytes! cohort.

Switzerlands Koa, for instance, focuses on providing digital tools to smallholder farmers in order to create a transparent cocoa product. Meanwhile, Norwegian Farmforce is working to create a mobile platform to secure sustainable sourcing for farmers. At the consumer end of the chain, UK start-up Good Club aims to provide consumers with a go-to online market for sustainable food products.

As well as addressing efficiency and cost, supply chain technologies are helping to strengthen the food system and build a more resilient and sustainable supply chain, Greven continued. All of these technologies address various and important areas across the supply chain from loss mitigation (shelf-life extension and food safety), food e-commerce (accessibility and transparency), and connected marketplaces that help close the gap between farmers and consumers.

The ability of agile start-up innovators to develop new and pioneering approaches to the table has driven investment in the space. Indeed, Greven noted:Half of capital invested into European food and ag start-ups in 2020 has been to midstream technologies focused on supply chain efficiency and digitisation."

This figure is higher than the level seen in the US, where that number is closer to 40%, she added.

Biotechnology and cellular solutions also offer the opportunity to re-think how we produce food and source materials.

New understandings of the role biosciences can play in the food industry can help address major challenges from agricultural production to food quality and health and nutrition.

Were seeing excitement from our community of experts and corporates surrounding the development of next gen food technologies, Greven observed.

Greven said that the rapid development of this sector means that applications from biotech companies to FoodBytes! are also increasing.

Our biotech applications globally are on the rise in 2019 and 2020, biotech companies comprised of 10% of applications received, double that of the two years preceding.

This years FoodBytes! saw a total of three start-ups two of whom are European focused on cell-based meat and fermented protein.

CellulaREvolution has developed cell-culturing meat technology utilising a cell coating to facilitate the continuous production of proteins, rather than in batches, working with clients across the fields of cultured meat, cell therapy and biologics. NovoNutrients upcycles industrial carbon dioxide waste into food system ingredients. While Future Meat Technologies has developed a cell-culturing meat technology utilising the rapid growth of connective tissue cells to reach high densities before turning the cells into cultured muscle and healthy fats.

Elsewhere, innovators are looking at how fermentation technologies and bioreactors can be used to create ingredients without depleting natural resources. One of our selected start-ups for 2020, Michroma, is a perfect example this Argentinian based company produces next-generation natural ingredients in a sustainable, cost-effective and scalable way to brew food colorants, mycoprotein and more alternatives, Greven noted.

The 45 selected startups hail from 15 countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, the UK, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, India, Israel, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Singapore, South Korea and Switzerland.

Consumer food and beverage (CPG):

Food and beverage products made with upcycled ingredients are a top trend among FoodBytes! 2020 CPG startups, who are also pioneering innovations including edible spoons to reduce plastic waste, a distilled spirit made from upcycled whey byproduct, and plant-based cheese and egg products.

Food tech:

The shortlisted food tech startups have developed technologies for cell-based meat production, natural coatings that extend produce shelf life, and sustainable, antimicrobial packaging made from crustacean shells to replace plastic. Food safety technologies, advanced nutrition products and online marketplaces also address relevant needs in the wake of COVID-19.

Ag tech:

The shortlisted ag tech startups have developed solutions that address soil and water sustainability, farm efficiency and labour needs. Their innovations include technology that transforms air pollution into fertilizer, animal feed that reduces methane emissions, a method of growing rice out of water and on-farm robotics to combat labour shortages and worker safety concerns.

Each of the three winners (CPG, food tech, and ag tech) will receive a $10,000 prize, while FoodBytes! Pitch corporate members will also offer additional consulting to support winning startups, including:

Spotlight on COVID-19 antibody therapies after Trump’s recovery – – pharmaphorum

The spotlight remains on the potential of antibody therapies as a possible way out of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, with the US government investing millions in a hopeful from AstraZeneca and president Donald Trump recovering from coronavirus after receiving a rival therapy from Regeneron.

Thanks to a drug cocktail including Regenerons antibody therapy, Trump says he is back on his feet after becoming infected with the virus around the end of last month.

Trump has hailed the Regeneron therapy as a cure for the virus, but the companys CEO Leonard Schleifer was quick to point out that the scientific evidence is not there to support the claim.

Regenerons therapy is based on two antibodies the company has developed to neutralise the virus.

The thinking is that by having a double therapy, the chances of the virus developing resistance to both parts of the drug are reduced.

Like rivals Eli Lilly, Regeneron is in talks with the FDA to get an Emergency Use Authorisation based on the data it has gathered so far.

But CEO Leonard Schleifer said in a TV interview that there is a long way to go before the drug is fully approved.

Schleifer told CBS News Face the Nation: So the presidents case is a case of one, and thats what we call a case report, and it is evidence of whats happening, but its kind of the weakest evidence that you can get.

The real evidence has to come about how good a drug is and what it will do on average has to come from these large clinical trials.

Its just low down on the evidence scale that we really need.

Regeneron CEO Leonard Schleifer

Antibody therapies could also be used prophylactically, to protect people at high risk of getting the disease such as healthcare workers, or vulnerable people in areas where there are large numbers of cases.

AstraZeneca is to begin phase 3 trials of a long-acting antibody therapy combination in the US and other countries, to prevent infection happening and as therapy for those already infected.

AZs long-acting antibody (LAAB) combination, AZD7442, will advance into two phase 3 clinical trials in more than 6,000 participants at sites in and outside the US in the next few weeks.

The LAABs have been engineered with AstraZenecas proprietary half-life extension technology to increase the durability of the therapy for six to 12 months following a single administration.

The combination of two LAABs is also designed to reduce the risk of resistance developed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The LAABs have been engineered with AstraZenecas half-life extension technology to increase the durability of the therapy for six to 12 months following a single shot.

Like Regenerons therapy the combination of two LAABs is also designed to reduce the risk of resistance developed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The US government agency, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) has invested $486 million in the project.

One trial will test whether AZD7442 can safely and effectively prevent infection in up to 5,000 people, and the second trial will test post-exposure prophylaxis and pre-emptive treatment in around 1,100 people.

AZ is planning additional trials to evaluate AZD7442 in approximately 4,000 patients for the treatment of COVID-19.

The company plans to supply up to 100,000 doses starting towards the end of 2020 and the US Government can acquire up to an additional one million doses in 2021 under a separate agreement.

DNV GL and Bluewater to use digital twin to analyse FPSO fatigue – ShipInsight

Classification society DNV GL and FPSO specialist Bluewater are undertaking a pilot project to use hybrid digital twin technology to predict and analyse fatigue in the hull of an FPSO in the North Sea.

The project aims to validate and quantify the benefits of creating a virtual replica of the FPSO to optimise the structural safety of the vessel and enhance risk-based inspection (RBI), a decision-making methodology for optimising inspection regimes. The pilot underpins Bluewaters mission to take a proactive, responsible approach to safety and environmental care in its operations.

Bluewaters Aoka Mizu FPSO, currently in operation in the Lancaster field, west of Shetland, will be used. To date, the pilot test has shown encouraging results.

DNV GLs combination of domain experience, inspection capabilities and digital analytics and modelling, enables the monitoring of the assets hull structure during operation without dependence on costly routine inspection regimes. Termed Nerves of Steel, the underlying concept permits the use of various data sets (external environmental data or local sensor data) combined with digital models of the asset, to develop a hybrid replica model of the vessels structure. This can be used in real-time to monitor the assets condition, identify and monitor high risk locations, and plan targeted and cost-efficient maintenance and inspection activities.

Hybrid twin technology uses a combination of numerical design models and data from actively recorded strain gauge sensors on board the FPSO. These sensors allow for a full understanding of the accumulative loading and current state of the FPSO structure. The technology blends computer-simulated modelling with real-time data, which is then streamed to the operator via DNV GLs Veracity data platform or an existing data transfer solution.

By informing and enhancing the RBI process, operators can reduce operational costs and time, providing significant improvements in safety, thereby extending the lifespan and integrity of assets. With fluctuating oil price and the impact of Covid-19 on travel, delivering a mirror image of an asset from the safety of shore needs to be trusted and of value, said Koheila Molazemi, Technology and Innovation Director, DNV GL Oil & Gas.

DNV GLs visual dashboard presents data to Bluewater on stresses in the hulls structure, alongside information that can be used to identify areas with relative higher risk of cracks or deformities to occur. The information, which is constantly recorded, can be accessed and analysed to inform decision-making and implement inspection based on risk priority.

The trial will expand on traditional FPSO integrity management strategies, which are based on software-based assumptions made at the design stage as well as current inspection record to enhance RBI decision-making. The pilot with Bluewater is expected to provide new insight and smarter ways of managing risks and costs related to structural integrity management.

This is DNV GLs third pilot project evaluating the performance of hybrid digital twin technology. With global support from the advisors experts in Singapore, the UK and Norway, the first involved defining a repair procedure for a FPSO flare tower. Another trial, which is still ongoing, is being performed on a fixed offshore platform.

Like an insurance policy, the hybrid digital twin can potentially save millions by avoiding the costly and possibly catastrophic repercussions of ill-informed integrity management by pre-empting and preventing detrimental damage. For an asset operating in a harsh environment, where the loads play an important part in the possible degradations of the asset, using data from the site as a basis for optimised inspection planning, alarms for extreme events and asset suitability for life extension is crucial, added Francois-Xavier Sireta, Technical Lead for Naval Architecture and Principal Engineer, DNV GL Oil & Gas.

Peter van Sloten, Department Head Technology Management, Bluewater said, We decided to extend our digital twin programme to include our FPSO Aoka Mizu. Our ambition for the structures largely matched with the novel digitalisation services of DNV GL. We are therefore pleased to team up with DNV GL to develop a tool to monitor the structural integrity of this most versatile FPSO, designed and proven to operate in harsh environments with high uptimes and a maintained, strict regulatory and safety regime. This will enhance the safety and enables an optimised inspection regime.

World of Tomorrow Episode Three Review: The Best Sci-Fi Series of the 21st Century Goes Epic – IndieWire

Once upon a time there was afour-year-old girlnamed Emilywhohad an English accent andliked playing with toy cars.Do you like her cars?She was just a stick figure with pigtails and a yellow triangle for a torso, buther extraordinary liferippled through the cosmosin aseeminglylimitlessnumber of strange directionsforcenturies after it was over. And possibly also before it began.

Of course,certain wrinkles in the fabric of space-timemake it hardtosay for sure when either of those things really happened. All we know is that Emilywas visited by a third-generation adult clone of herself at thebeginning of DonHertzfeldtsbeloved 2015 short World of Tomorrow,and spirited away on a whirlwind tour of the hilariously fucked up digital future that awaited her and all of the various back-up Emilysinto which she would dump her consciousness after her body stopped working.

It was a future shaped by the grotesque horrors that had resulted from humanitys various attempts at life extension: Consumer-grade time travel that glitched people into space, mentally deteriorated clones who fell in love with inanimate objects, solar-powered moon robots who were cursed to keep chasing after the sunlight forever and coped with their pain by sending depressive poetry back to the Earthlings who programmed them. By the time Emily Prime (Hertzfeldts surreptitiously recorded niece) and her maybe homicidal adult clone (animator Julia Pott) arrived back where they began just 16 minutes later, their circular odyssey along the fringes of whats to come had somehow resolved into a profound meditation on the infinite possibility of the present and how much of our lives we forfeit to what could be or what might have been. Now is the envy of all of the dead.

Its anotionthatHertzfeldtdeepened and expanded uponwith2017sbrilliantWorld of Tomorrow Episode II: The Burden of Other Peoples Thoughts, which found Emily Prime and an incompleteback-upclone plonking aroundthewasteland of thelattershalf-formed self-consciousnesswith the samemorbid wonder that the first installment zinged through outer space. Ittoldan implosivestory of identity and confabulation andmemory tourists a story about holding on tosome preciousessence ofourselves even whenit feels like the universe is trying to dissolve us together, or finding one when it feels like youre a clone in search of someone to be. Or, you know, when thats literally what you are.Episode II played like a distorted mirror image of World of Tomorrow in a way that made the twoshortfilms seem like a perfect, self-containedcouplet.


Hertzfeldt could have left it there, secure in the knowledge that hed created one of the defining sci-fi series of this young century. But there was no way he was just going to pack up his toys and call it a day after mashing The Jetsons and Brazil into the kind of digital sandbox that someone could play in until the Earth blew up without ever growing bored of the existential crises it allowed them to imagineer along the way.

The Emilys are inexhaustibly entertaining characters, and though Episode II was another closed loop of atale, its non-linearnarrativeleft people reeling with ideasabout what might happen to this little girl and her ever-expandingarmyofbrain-damagedadult clones in afuture where even the most ordinary peoplecouldecho through eternity.If Carl Sagan was right to saywere all made of star-stuff, how beautiful andderangedmightthat actually look like on a long enough timeline one knotted by time travel, andlittered with people whoseorigins are ascloseand irrationalas the square root ofa prime number?

And so we arrive at World of Tomorrow Episode Three: The Absent Destinations of David Prime, aminiature34-minute epic thatstandson its owneven as itretrofitsthe previous installmentswith new layers that make them seem even morepoignantin hindsight. That title alone is probably enough to give Hertzfeldt fans some indication as to where this chapter might take us, but Episode Three opens with a flurry of sight gags so lucid and funny that series neophytes arent at any risk of getting lost in space; the laughter should be enough to localize most people, and everyone else can rest easy in the knowledge that the second half of the movie comes with its own flow charts.

A stick figure named Davidfloats through the traffic of deep space on a cramped ship thats barely any larger than his body; surrounded by the infinite wonder and mystery of the cosmos, he busies himself with a little online shoppingon his neural display(Why not?? reads the tagline for a pair of human gills).Suddenlyamessage appearsa memory that was buried deep in his subconscious as a child and time-lockeduntil the invention of interstellar travel. Its anEmily, and she needs David to travel to a remote alien planet in order to retrievea beacon that contains some very important information.Compelledby the dj vuofmaking contact with a stranger he recognizes as if she were his own shadow, Davidwordlesslyheeds Emilys request.

Theres only one problem: The relatively primitive computer that runs his brain doesnt have enough memory to handle a giant message from the future, and so David has to continually delete basic motor functions as he makes his way to whatever it is Emily left behind for him to find. Hilarity ensues. The first half of Episode Three might be the single funniest stretch of Hertzfeldts immaculate filmography, as Davids gradual debilitation marries the mortal anxiety of Its Such a Beautiful Day with the cartoon hyper-violence of Rejected in an ever-darkening crescendo of delectable chefs kiss moments. Its no surprise that Hertzfeldt distills the tragicomic absurdity of being alive in 2020 better than any other filmmaker has thus far (after all, hes been doing it for the last two decades).

But its what happens after David is able to download the rest of Emilys message that makes Episode Three such a vital and unexpected addition to this tantalizingly open-ended saga. The trail of where and when David goes from there quickly knot into Hertzfeldts most intricate narrative, as Emilys usual exposition gives way to the World of Tomorrow series first stretch of action-driven storytelling (but not before Pott delivers another of the peerlessly droll voice performances that give these movies their malformed heart, the Summer Camp Island creator twirling from sanguine to sociopath and back again as she prattles off dystopic jargon like a psychic college professor with brain worms).

Hertzfeldtjunkies will delight at how David Primes absent destinationsweave through the series previous chapters and answer LaJete-like questions about its lore that you may never have thought to ask; other cinematic universes could learn a thing or two fromhow seamlessly this movie is tailored to fititsbroader mythology. Everyonenewcomers includedcan Marvel at the elaborate time crisis thatHertzfeldtis able to execute. Its farcically complicatedstuff thatwends its way throughthe space between time,touches uponthe grandfather paradox,and builds toashootoutthat puts Tenet to shame withjust a handful of stick figures, but thehumanlogic ofthe heart-stopping final beatis clear enoughthat youwontneed a subreddit to explain the goosebumps on your skin(the films rich soundscape helps seal the deal, while Taylor Barrons eye-popping composite work allows thisto becomeHertzfeldtsmost tactile work so far).

And the World of Tomorrow series emotional undertow remains as powerful as ever. Hertzfeldt has always used Vonnegut-esque gallows humor to lower our defenses and make us laugh at things that might otherwise be too dark to even think about, but Episode Three in its own beautiful, demented way clarifies how that confrontationally mordant streak allows the Emilys to show us an ugly kind of hope worth keeping. The (almost) six years since the original World of Tomorrow premiered at Sundance have done so much to challenge the idea that now is the envy of all of the dead, and yet Hertzfeldts clones invariably twist the coldness of the universe and the constant threat of oblivion that comes with it into something perversely life-affirming.

At a time when technocratic futurism is pulling us forward while authoritarian regimes are holding us back, theres never been so much nauseating currency to the axiom that we should all strive to live in the moment. But Hertzfeldt knows thats easier said than done. For all of the bittersweet koans that litter his films, theres nothing prescriptive about his work. The original World of Tomorrow even ends with the Emily clone instructing Emily Prime on how to live her best life, but as any time-traveler should know she might have already lived it.

Time is a prison of living things, David tells us, and like any prison, we arealways looking for a way out. Theimpulse to escape will never change, it will only grow weirder.And yet, time is also a conduit for the abstract consequences that living thingsleave behind like messages in a bottle: Moments and memories thatfloat through the universe on butterfly wings, andare beautiful not for how they remain intact, but rather for how theyresublimated intothe star-stuff of a world that wouldnt be the same without them.Hertzfeldtsopen-ended fable(dont you dare call it a trilogy)is able to have so muchfun with the fact that were all going to die horrible deaths one daybecause its rooted inthebeliefthat weve alwaysbeen immortal.

That Emily Prime doesnt appear in Episode Three only makes it all the more obvious how shes hiding in the margins of every frame how even the least assuming of people (much like the profound short films that might be made about them) can pinball through space-time in ways that no one can imagine. Well, almost no one. Death is not a destination, Hertzfeldt offers, it is the absence of one. Ive never been more excited to see what detours he takes us on next.

Find out where Trump and Biden stand on defense and security issues –

Arms Control:

U.S. President Donald Trump: The Trump administration has withdrawn the U.S. from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, and (almost) the 1992 Open Skies Treaty. It has loosened the Missile Technology Control Regimes restrictions on selling armed drones to foreign governments amid concerns about Chinas defense relationships in the Middle East. As of press time, administration officials have been unwilling to extend the 2010 New START nuclear pact with Russia, which expires in February, insisting that a new version include Russias growing arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons and China, whose smaller arsenal is rapidly expanding and which appears unwilling to sign such an agreement.

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden: Favored by arms control advocates, Biden has promised to renew New START and would likely accept Russias offer to extend it five years without preconditions. He also said he would rejoin the Iran nuclear deal if it returned to full compliance described in the agreement. While Trump has loosened restrictions on the use of landmines by the U.S. military in conflict areas, Biden has said the move unnecessarily puts civilians at risk and that he would reverse it.

Nuclear weapons:

Trump: Its expected the current president would stay on his path of modernizing all three legs of the nuclear arsenal something that has bipartisan support in Congress despite growing budget pressure. Trump deployed the W76-2 submarine-launched, low-yield nuclear warhead to counter a similar Russian weapon, and he has plans for a submarine-launched cruise missile, or SLCM. Trump approved a $44.5 billion nuclear weapons budget request in fiscal 2021 an increase of about 19 percent meant for the W76-2, several ongoing nuclear warhead life extension programs, a future W93 submarine-launched ballistic missile warhead, and the expansion of the production of plutonium pits for nuclear warheads to at least 80 per year.

Biden: Biden signaled he would scale back Trumps buildup. The Democratic nominee for president is opposed to the W76-2 and an SLCM. Biden would face pressure from the left to drop plans to build a new nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile force, replacing the Minuteman III fleet fielded in 1970, though he has not announced a position on it. Biden said he would review a policy reserving the option of using nuclear weapons first.

Defense budget:

Trump: The Pentagons five-year defense plan indicates it will request flat defense spending after 2021, and under pressure from coronavirus-related expenses the budget is widely expected to stay flat regardless of who is president. Trump championed record national defense top lines of $700 billion in 2018, $716 billion in 2019 and $733 billion for 2020, and he created the new Space Force. He has also diverted billions of defense dollars to fund a southern border wall, and in 2018 he backed off a proposal for a $750 billion defense budget, calling it crazy.

Biden: Biden said Trump abandoned all fiscal discipline when it comes to defense spending, and while he doesnt foresee major U.S. defense cuts if elected, he would face pressure from the left to make them. To affordably deter Russia and China, Biden said he would shift investments from legacy systems that wont be relevant to smart investments in technologies and innovations including in cyber, space, unmanned systems and artificial intelligence. He also wants to boost neglected nonmilitary investments, such as diplomacy, economic power, education, and science and technology.

Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran:

Trump: Both candidates have railed against endless wars, and both have vowed to bring U.S. troops home from Afghanistan. After engaging in peace talks with the Taliban, the U.S. cut its troop presence to 8,600 in June, with plans to go to 4,500 by November and no troops by the spring. For Iraq, Trump plans to go from 5,200 troops to 3,000 by November. On Iran, Trump withdrew the U.S. from the nuclear deal and reimposed crippling trade sanctions as part of a maximum-pressure campaign. The administration recently warned allies it may target leaders of Iran-backed militias that have targeted U.S. forces and diplomatic posts in Iraq.

Biden: Biden has vowed to bring U.S. combat troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, likely leaving residual counterterrorism forces. His camp favors small-scale operations (maybe led by special forces) rather than large, open-ended troop deployments, which he agrees would require the informed consent of the American people. Biden, who voted for the Iraq War when he was a senator, said during his current campaign that he played a key role in the Obama administrations drawdown of 150,000 U.S. forces from Iraq. On Iran, he said he would commit to preventing the country from acquiring a nuclear weapon, offer a diplomatic path while maintaining targeted sanctions, and work closely with Israel to ensure the American ally can defend itself against Iran and its proxies.

Arms sales:

Trump: Increasing U.S. arms sales has been a central focus of Trump and his administrations foreign policy. Hes moved to speed up the review process for major arms sales, made it easier to export firearms, eased the criteria for selling armed drones under the Missile Technology Control Regime and directed U.S. diplomats to advocate for American weapons purchases. He advanced several sales suspended under the Obama administration which played into a clash with Congress over sales to Saudi Arabia and other parties to the war in Yemen. Though Trump has touted the economic benefits of U.S. arms sales abroad, the idea is also to provide partners with American alternatives to Russian and Chinese weapons in order to maintain American influence.

Biden: While Biden hasnt made his views clear about arms sales overall, he said he would end U.S. military and other support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. As he reassesses the U.S.-Saudi relationship, he would end weapon sales to Riyadh (which has historically been the top partner for U.S. military sales). We will make clear that America will never again check its principles at the door just to buy oil or sell weapons, Biden said. On firearm exports, his campaign said he may reverse a Trump administration rule that moved jurisdiction from the State Department to the Commerce Department.

NATO and Europe:

Trump: Among Trumps earliest foreign policy stances was a pledge to get allies to pay their fair share, particularly by getting NATO members to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense by 2024. That percentage of GDP is a NATO-backed goal. Trump often mischaracterizes that pledge as allies being delinquent in paying the U.S. funds. Trump has also pushed for tough trade rules with European nations, which has led to tensions with European capitals.

Biden: Biden and his advisers have drawn a contrast with Trump, pledging to rehabilitate frayed alliances. Biden has hit Trump for straining relations between the U.S. and Europe. He said the next president must salvage our reputation, rebuild confidence in our leadership, and mobilize our country and our allies to rapidly meet new challenges, pledging that he would take immediate steps to renew U.S. democracy and alliances, protect the United States' economic future, and once more have America lead the world. Biden plans to review troop movements out of Germany if he takes office, according to a top foreign policy aide.

Great power competition:

Trump: The Trump administrations National Defense Strategy announced a new era of great power competition. But while that includes Russia on paper, the administrations economic and military focus has squarely focused on China; the rhetoric from Trump has only increased following the COVID-19 outbreak, which the Republican president has called the China virus. Militarily, the Pentagon is attempting to shift focus and investments toward Pacific priorities, while also withdrawing forces from Europe.

Biden: While in the Senate, Biden pushed for better relations with China through increased commercial ties. But he now views China as the greatest strategic challenge to the United States and our allies in Asia and in Europe, one of the few areas in which he and Trump agree. Biden has called Chinese President Xi Jinping a thug and pledged swift economic sanctions against China if it tries to influence American companies or citizens. While Trump has bragged about having a good relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, expect a different tone from Biden should he occupy the White House. The former vice president has described Trump as subservient to Putin," and has talked about telling Putin directly: I dont think you have a soul.

Equinox Gold updates reserves and resources for Mesquite mine in California – The Northern Miner

Equinox Gold(TSX: EQX; NYSE: EQX) has announced an increase in reserves and resources at its Mesquite open-pit heap leach gold mine in California, about 56 km east of Brawley, and 84 km northwest of Yuma in Arizona.

According to the junior mining company, estimated proven and probable reserves increased by 142,267 oz. of gold as of Jun. 30, up 28% from the previous estimate in Dec. 2019, and now stands at 37.8 million tonnes grading 0.54 gram gold per tonne for 658,000 oz. contained gold. The estimate, the company said, is net of mining depletion amounting to 68,267 oz. gold during the first half of 2020.

Measured and indicated resources are estimated at 66.7 million tonnes grading 0.39 gram gold for 837,000 oz. of gold, a 94% increase from the Dec. 2019 estimate of 432,000 ounces.

Inferred resources rose by 193,000 oz. to 69.2 million tonnes grading 0.32 gram gold for 703,000 oz. of gold, a 38% increase over the same period.

The mid-year update, the company said, incorporates an additional 77 drill holes over 10,785 metres of bedrock drilling, 661 holes totalling 36,785 metres of drilling targeting historical dumps, and updated geologic and grade-shell domains.

At the end of 2019, the company had identified approximately 36 million tonnes of potentially mineralised material from previous operations that had not been drill tested and initiated a 35,000-metre exploration drill program.

Drilling in the Big Chief, Midway, and Brownie waste dumps at Mesquite yielded significant gains in mineral resources, the company reported. Indicated resources in the dumps increased more than four-fold to 22.7 million tonnes grading 0.22 gram gold for 160,000 oz. contained gold and inferred resources rose by 31% to 36.6 million tonnes grading 0.22 gram gold for 225,000 ounces. The increase did not reflect the depletion of resource material contained in the 2019 mineral resource that had already been stacked on the leach pad, the company noted.

Drilling in 2019, the company reported, confirmed that the dump material overlying the Brownie deposit area contained gold resources and that in-situ mineralisation was present adjacent to and extending from the resource pit.

A follow-up 13,897 metre drill program on the Brownie deposit was undertaken to test the potential to extend mineralisation along strike and down dip. Highlights included 35.1 metres grading 0.51 gram gold; 33.5 metres grading 0.66 gram gold; 52.6 metres grading 0.85 gram gold; and 44.2 metres grading 0.58 gram gold.

The results, the company said, increase its confidence in the geological model and highlight the potential for further expansion potential to the north, northwest, and southeast of existing resources.

Exploration efforts at Mesquite in the first half of 2020 more than replaced mined reserves and significantly increased mineral resources, providing additional mine life at what has been our best-performing mine this year, Scott Heffernan, Equinoxs executive vice president of exploration, stated in a press release.

Drilling in the Brownie deposit also yielded excellent results and points to the potential for a multi-year mine life extension from in-situ mineralization and overlying mineralized dumps.

At press time in Toronto, Equinox was trading at $15.62 per share within a 52-week trading range of $6.60 and $17.99.

The company has around 241 million common shares outstanding for a $3.8-billion market capitalization.

Steam generators for Koeberg: the most expensive transport of scrap metal in the history of humankind – Daily Maverick

The first of six replacement steam engines arrives at Koeberg. Photo: EE Publishers

On the basis of a three-month shorter delivery time, the R5-billion steam generator replacement contract was finally awarded to French state-owned nuclear contractor, Areva, which, after running into financial difficulties, is now controlled by French national electricity utility, Electricite d France (EDF).

This followed an extended High Court, Appeal Court and Constitutional Court battle in South Africa, in which Westinghouse (ultimately unsuccessfully) tried to challenge the irregular contract award to Areva on the grounds that the claimed urgency of the life extension was deliberately contrived by Eskom in order to wrongfully award the contract to Areva.

At the time when Koeberg was built between 1976 and 1985, Framatome (the predecessor to Areva) manufactured the two 900 MW nuclear reactors and the six associated steam generators at Koeberg, using designs licensed from Westinghouse.

Both Eskom and Areva claimed that it was absolutely critical for the safe operation of the power plant, and for the security of electricity supply in South Africa, that the steam generators should be finally replaced during the so-called X23 outage at Koeberg in 2018.

This was cited by Eskom as the reason for awarding the contract to Areva, where an allegedly contrived three-month float in Arevas project plan was indicated as the deciding factor. This, despite Westinghouse having met all the technical and commercial requirements, with a lower contract price, and a guarantee to meet the 2018 completion date on pain of substantial penalties.

However, all has not gone well for Areva in executing the project.

Areva is said to have experienced serious manufacturing quality problems with the steam generator forgings in France. In view of the claimed time criticality of the project, to resolve these issues Eskom and Areva agreed that the uncompleted forgings would be air-freighted to China where an Areva partner would complete the manufacture.

Apparently, each of the six steam generator forgings required the hiring of a Russian Antonov freighter aircraft (six flights in total) to fly the forgings from France to China. However, according to an impeccable source, after taking a closer look at the forgings, Arevas Chinese partner decided to scrap them and start again from scratch.

One can only speculate as to why it was not considered more economical for Areva to fly engineers from the Chinese manufacturer to France to examine the steam generator forgings, as opposed to flying all six steam generators to China for the inspection, prior to them being scrapped in China.

A former senior nuclear executive at Eskom commented to this writer at the time that: This was the most expensive transport of scrap metal in the history of humankind.

Eskom confirmed to EE Business Intelligence last week that: The forgings did not meet the expected quality standards and could not be accepted, and therefore they were scrapped by the contractor at their own cost.

According to Eskom, the contractual delivery date of all six steam generators was February 2018, with the contractual completion date for the replacement of all six steam generators being the end of 2019.

However, with all the delays in the project, including restarting manufacture of the steam generators from scratch in China, delivery of the first three steam generators for Unit 1 at Koeberg is only starting now in September 2020, with those for Unit 2 only scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2021.

Regarding the actual replacement of the steam generators, Eskom now says that: Installation is aligned with the outages scheduled for 2021 and 2022 respectively for the two Koeberg reactor units (Unit 1 and Unit 2). No mention is now made by Eskom of the criticality for completion in 2018 cited by Eskom at the time as the reason for placing a more expensive contract with Areva.

While not answering specific questions on the cost overruns arising for the project, Eskom insists that: The estimated cost-to-completion for the project is within the original budget approved in 2014. Of course, this is not very helpful because the original budget approved in 2014 is not disclosed, and may have been significantly higher than the contract price.

However, it seems clear that Eskom has in fact paid a premium for the replacement by Areva of the steam generators at Koeberg on the basis of a claimed three-month shorter completion time, when in fact completion will be some three years longer.

Areva has previously not responded to queries regarding the scrapping of the generators.

Shipbuilding industry pushes back as federal government shops for used icebreaker –

The federalgovernment is in the market for another used icebreaker that could be converted for use by the Canadian Coast Guard on the Great Lakes much to the dismay of shipbuilders across the country.

A request for proposals to acquire an existing light icebreaker was posted on the government's procurement website in mid-September.

The timing is interesting.Federal decision-makers have known for five years that the coast guard needssuch a vessel for the region.

The request for proposals which closes at the end of October was posted as U.S. lawmakers began to push bipartisan legislation through Congress to strengthen the U.S. Coast Guard's capacity to break ice and keep commerce flowing on the Great Lakes.

The plan for Canada to buy a used icebreaker follows a separate decision by Transport Canada to purchase a used ferry from Spain on an emergency basis.

The Canadian Marine Industry and Shipbuilding Association (CMISA), which represents most of the marine suppliers and shipyards across the country, said both decisions represent a loss of domestic jobs and at least $250 million in federal spending that could have gone into a Canadian economy hard hit by the coronavirus.

"We're of the strong belief that vessels such as light icebreakers can and should be built in Canada," said Colin Cooke, president and chief executive officer of the shipbuilding association.

"We have the capacity. We have the skilled trades. We have the expertise, the technical expertise. We have the shipyards. And that was what the point of the National Shipbuilding Strategy was all about."

That shipbuilding strategy is supposed to direct governmentwork to Canadian shipyards.Cooke said the plan to purchasean existing icebreaker and the deal to acquire a former Spanish ferry would both be unacceptable in normal times but they're even lessacceptablenow.

"We are in a COVID time when we're looking for all sorts of ways to make sure that people are employed, that businesses are able to survive I won't say thrive, I will say survive through the lockdowns caused by this pandemic," he said.

Public Services and Procurement Canada was asked for comment last Thursdaybut did notrespond.

The tender for the light icebreaker, posted online Sept. 18, describes the purchase as a necessaryinterim step for the coast guard to "bridge the gap while awaiting the delivery of dedicated new vessels."

Significantly, the request for proposals noted that the need for such a ship was identifiedfive years ago around the same time a comprehensive analysis warned that the coast guard icebreakingfleet was in dire straits and in need of immediate replacement.

"In 2015-16 the CCG identified a requirement for interim icebreaking capabilities to fill gaps in capacity resulting from ships being temporarily withdrawn from service" for refit and life extension, said the tender.

Two years ago, the Liberal government concluded a deal worth $827 millionwith Chantier Davie of Levis, Que., which operates the Davie shipyard, to refit three medium-sized commercial icebreakers for the coast guard.

Tim Choi, a University of Calgary shipbuilding expert, saidthis recent tendersuggeststhe federal government isoperating on the flawed assumption that there is an abundance of used icebreakers on the market.

The deal with the Davie shipyard was an anomaly and federal officials "got lucky" last time because there happened to be three vessels available, he said.

Choisaid he believes the federal government isn'tlikely tobe sofortunate this time:his research suggests there may beonly one light icebreaker out therethat would fit in the bill in Finland and it's notclear the Finns are ready to part with it.

"There are very few requirements for a vessel like that outside of Canada and the United States in the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence region," said Choi. "It's not like there's a used car lot where you can just go out and buy these things."

The shipbuilding association said it can make a strong case for a fast-track build in Canada.Choi said he believes procurement services may be forced in that direction anyway because of market conditions.

In mid-September, three U.S. senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Todd Young (R-IN) and Gary Peters (D-MI) introduced the Great Lakes Winter Commerce Act.

The bipartisan legislation is expected to codify the U.S. Coast Guard's icebreaking operations on the Great Lakes and, more importantly, increase the size of its fleet.

"Inadequate icebreaking capacity in the Great Lakes is costing us thousands of American jobs and millions in business revenue," said Baldwin in a statement. "We must boost our icebreaking capacity in the Great Lakes to keep our maritime commerce moving."

New Research Demonstrates Daxor BVA-100 Blood Test Provides Extremely Cost-Effective Improvement in Patient Life Span at the Heart Failure Society of…

NEW YORK, Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR), an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement, today announces compelling new data demonstrating further beneficial use of Daxors blood volume analysis technology presented during the Heart Failure Society of Americas Virtual Annual Scientific Meeting 2020.

New data titled, Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Early Blood Volume-Guided Management in Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients studied the economic benefits of the use of blood volume analysis in the population of heart failure patients, one of the largest cost-drivers of the national healthcare system. The data showed an extremely cost-effective incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of $10,200 which was 80% less costly than other therapies that are considered good value by common quality metrics. The data also revealed an average life-extension of 2.32 quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) in addition to the cost savings.

The use of Daxors BVA-100 blood test in heart failure outcomes in this compelling study showed exceptional value by not only improving patient life span, but also at a cost which is significantly less than other commonly used therapies. Daxors blood test for use in treating heart failure is demonstrably better for patient life extension outcomes compared to many other treatment regimes, while also driving excellent economic value for hospital systems, said Jonathan Feldschuh, Daxors Chief Scientific Officer.

Jean Oertel, VP of Commercialization and Customer Experience at Daxor stated, This important data shows the full power of our diagnostic technology with the ability to achieve better outcomes at reduced costs. The value of Daxors BVA-100 blood test for hospital systems and payers managing heart failure is covered by both public and private insurance with CPT/APC coding, something that many other approved tests never achieve even years after market clearance by the FDA.

Intimate & heart-wrenching: The compelling story of parents who cryogenically freeze their dead 2-year-old child – RT

Netflixs Hope Frozen documentary follows a family in Thailand that turns to science in their fervent desire that their daughter may one day live again. It is a surprisingly poignant portrait of familial love and grief.

In Hope Frozen: A Quest to Live Twice, filmmaker Pailin Wedel masterfully documents the compelling story of the Naovaratpong family, comprised of the father, Sahatorn, his wife Nareerat and their teenage son Matrix, who suffer the terrible loss of their beloved two-year-old daughter Einz from ependymoblastoma, a rare and aggressive brain cancer.

During Einzs illness, her father frantically uses his science background (he is an engineer) to try and learn on the fly and discover a cure for his ailing daughter as she deteriorates.

After a dozen surgeries and 20 chemotherapy and radiation treatments, it becomes readily apparent that time is running out for little Einz. In response, Sahatorn then turns his attention to cryogenics, in the hope that he could freeze his daughter after death, in order to one day re-animate her when a cure for her disease is found.

Immediately following Einzs heart-breaking demise, doctors from the Alcor Life Extension Foundation go about cryogenically freezing her. Once that process is completed, Einzs body is sent from Thailand to storage in Arizona.

This story sounds like some bizarre science fiction, but Hope Frozen masterfully turns this strange tale into a morally and ethically complex story that is intensified by the emotional power of grief.

In addition, the film raises a plethora of profound philosophical questions, but to its credit it never presumes to know the answers.

The film ponders such matter as what is consciousness? Is consciousness attached to the body? Are memories kept intact when someone is cryogenically frozen? Is that frozen body really a person or just a collection of flesh and bones? Can death be scientifically defeated? Will cryogenics even work? Can people be re-animated in the future? Will a cure for cancer ever be found?

These questions are made even more complicated by the familys fervent faith in science coupled with their spiritual belief in Buddhism. This results in the family grappling with issues such as will freezing Einz stop her from reincarnating? And is cryogenics just imprisoning Einzs soul in a lifeless body?

The most intriguing member of the Naovaratpong family is the son Matrix, a smart and sensitive young man haunted by his sisters death.

At his fathers prodding, Matrix is a scientific genius who dedicates his life to finding a way to bring his sister back to life. Ever the big brother, he even becomes a novice Buddhist monk in an attempt to try and protect his dead sisters soul.

Like his mother and father, Matrix will never shed the painful burden that is the death of Einz. The Naovaratpongs simply cant let go of their daughter, of the dream of her future and of their grieving wound.

By cryogenically freezing Einz, the family freezes themselves into a perpetual state of hope and grief this keeps Einz fresh in their minds. Their hope and grief are all they have left so they do not want to let them go. As long as hope for her return and grief for her loss are frozen in place, Einz lives on.

As the film progresses, the story takes on multiple twists and turns that makes for interesting viewing particularly a scene where Matrix calls home after a trip to America but the most fascinating part of the film is the love for Einz that is at the core of it.

You can question the familys decision to cryogenically freeze their daughter and their quest to keep the hope of her alive in the face of death, I know I did, but what I never did was question the purity of their motives or the profundity of their love.

As a parent, it is impossible to watch Hope Frozen and not have compassion and empathy for Sahatorn, Nareerat and Matrix. Their love for Einz is exquisitely beautiful to witness even when it is wildly contorted by grief and despair.

The familys devotion to science in the form of cryogenics in the hope of overcoming death is no different than any other faith taking center stage in an existential crisis. Faith is our shield against the slings and arrows of life and the inevitability of our own annihilation.

The Naovaratpongs wrap themselves in the cloak of science in order to maintain the illusion that Einz will rise from the dead, just as a Catholic like myself clings to that same delusion that death can be conquered through Gods love and power.

This need to believe in something, anything, to make the colossal pain of grief, and the terrifying prospect of the eternal abyss of death, subside, is all too human, and is strikingly highlighted in Hope Frozen.

This is a deeply moving documentary because it reminds us that life is fleeting and that love isnt everything its the only thing.

Landfill getting 15-year life extension with new cover system –

Landfill life extended 15 years with $50K purchase

Spending just $50,000 on new equipment for the Summerland landfill is expected to free up $17 million worth of extra space for trash, council heard Monday.

The expense, which was approved unanimously, will allow staff to buy a set of flat, metal panels similar in design to a garage door that can be placed each night on the active face of the landfill.

That will eliminate the need for the sites operator to spread 15 centimetres of clean fill over the new garbage each night as required by the B.C. government, according to Candace Pilling, the District of Summerlands manager of environmental services.

The daily cover is required to keep birds, bears and wind away from the garbage, she explained, but it also takes up valuable space in the dump.

According to Pilling, the space that will be saved by the steel panels replacing fill will be enough to extend the life of the landfill from 2068 to 2083 by freeing up room for an extra 157,000 metric tonnes of trash, which would attract tipping fees of $17.2 million at todays rate.

The steel panels, which are two metres wide and 10 metres long, were originally scheduled for purchase in 2023, but Pilling recommended council make the purchase as soon as possible.

Manufactured in Revelstoke, the panels are known as the Iron Grizzly Alternate Daily Cover System.

3 of the best vitamin C supplements: What to look for – Medical News Today

We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Heres our process.

Most people can get adequate vitamin C in their diet by eating fruits and vegetables. However, some people take a vitamin C supplement due to dietary restrictions or a medical condition.

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that is essential for health. It helps the immune system, skin, and bones to function, and combats damage from free radicals, which are molecules that can adversely affect the body.

This article looks at who may benefit from taking vitamin C, how much people need to consume per day, and some of the best vitamin C supplements on the market.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), vitamin C deficiency is rare in the United States. Although most people can get enough vitamin C from fruits and vegetables, others have difficulty getting enough vitamin C from their diet.

People who may be at risk for vitamin C deficiency include:

Anyone concerned that they have a deficiency can ask a doctor for blood tests to see which nutrients they need. A long-term deficiency in vitamin C can lead to scurvy.

In addition to those who have a vitamin C deficiency, some other people may also benefit from consuming more of this nutrient. For example, some evidence suggests vitamin C can reduce the severity and duration of the common cold.

According to the NIH, there is no conclusive evidence that vitamin C has an impact on COVID-19.

According to the NIH, the recommended intake of vitamin C is between 7590 milligrams (mg) per day.

Typically, the small intestine absorbs up to 100 mg of vitamin C from food per day. Once the cells have become saturated with vitamin C, they cannot absorb any more.

However, some people believe that taking very large doses of vitamin C, or mega-dosing is beneficial. This may stem from a 1976 paper that indicated that high-dose vitamin C could prolong the life of people with terminal cancer.

However, more recent studies have failed to repeat this result.

Vitamin C doses of over 2,000 mg per day may cause side effects, such as:

People with particular health conditions or who take certain medications may also need to avoid vitamin C supplements. Conditions include:

Vitamin C may also interact with chemotherapy treatment.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) do not approve Vitamin C products. It is important to discuss taking any new supplement with a doctor.

There are several forms of vitamin C. In supplements, vitamin C usually comes in the form of ascorbic acid. However, some supplements contain other forms, such as sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, or ascorbic acid with bioflavonoids.

According to the NIH, all forms of vitamin C are similarly beneficial.

There are various ways to take vitamin C, including:

Some people may prefer the convenience of swallowing tablets, while others may prefer a powder they can mix into drinks.

People with problems absorbing nutrients may prefer a sublingual supplement, as the body absorbs these in the mouth, rather than in the intestines.

There are many vitamin products on the market, and because they are not FDA-approved, they may vary significantly in purity, ingredients, and dosage. Always buy vitamin C from a reputable company and ensure the products undergo third-party testing.

The products listed below

Please note that the author of this article has not tested these products. All information is research-based.

Pure Encapsulations vitamin C liquid provides 1,000 mg of vitamin C in one teaspoon (tsp) and comes in a pleasant citrus flavor.

According to the company, it contains non-GMO ingredients and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

This product contains liposomal vitamin C, which means tiny bubbles of oil contain the vitamin C.

According to a 2020 study, the gut finds this form of vitamin C easier to absorb. However, this is likely a factor in the price, which is higher than other brands.

The company are NSF- and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)-certified, and they have their ingredients tested for contaminants.

Pure Encapsulations Liposomal Vitamin C is available for purchase online.

Some people find taking ascorbic acid irritates their stomach. Buffered vitamin C is a less acidic form of the nutrient, which may help reduce adverse effects.

One serving of this powder provides 4,000 mg of vitamin C. This dose is very high, twice that of the upper limit the NIH recommend. However, as this product comes in a powder, people can lower the dose to a more moderate level by using smaller amounts of powder.

Life Extension are also NSF- and GMP-certified and produce a Certificate of Analysis for every product they make.

Life Extension Buffered Vitamin C Powder is available for purchase online.

People who do not like swallowing tablets may prefer a chewable vitamin. This product delivers 500 mg of vitamin C per chewable tablet. A person can take 12 per day.

The product is free of common allergens and suitable for vegans. It does contain some sugar and natural sweeteners, although this only totals 1 g per dose. The tablets have a natural orange flavor.

According to the website, NOW exceeds GMP standards and tests all raw ingredients for safety and purity.

NOW Supplements Orange Chewable Vitamin C-500 is available for purchase online.

Eating more fruits and vegetables is the best way for someone to increase their vitamin C intake naturally. The NIH suggest:

Some companies also fortify their breakfast cereals with added vitamin C.

High heat, water-based cooking methods, and prolonged storage can destroy some of the foods vitamin C content. The NIH suggest lightly steaming or microwaving vegetables to retain more of their nutrients.

Vitamin C deficiency can be fatal if left unaddressed or untreated. Someone should see their doctor if they have symptoms that may indicate a vitamin C deficiency. These include:

People should also consult their doctor before taking vitamin C, particularly if they have a medical condition, are pregnant, or take any medications.

Most people get enough vitamin C by eating a varied diet that includes fruits and vegetables. However, some people may need a supplement.

All forms of vitamin C work in much the same way, but always buy from a reputable seller, and consider the dosage, quality, and price point before buying a product.

Too much vitamin C may cause side effects.

Some people should not take vitamin C, so it is best to consult a doctor before starting any supplement.

15 Futuristic Jobs That Will Be Common in the Next Few Decades – Interesting Engineering

Jobs will be very different in the next few decades. Emerging technologies and decade-defining problems will create job titles that you have never seen before. According to research presented by the World Economic Forum, over the next ten years,1.2 billion employees worldwide will be affected by the adaptation of automation technologies and AI.

It is believed that this will involve up to50% of the world economy and will disrupt $14.6 trillion in wages. However, this might not be a bad thing. This disruption could lead to a new range of jobs in various sectors, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Most of the jobs of today will not just disappear. Instead, many of them will likely evolve to match an automated or digital world. Beyond AI and automation though, new opportunities in fields like space tourism, drone technologies, social media, 3D printing, and IoT opportunities will emerge for those interested in these fields. Your hobby for desktop 3D printing could be a viable skill.

How does "3D Printing Food Specialist" Sound? Or, maybe you can take your aerospace engineering degree with a minor in off-planet hospitality andbecome a space tourism guide. Immediate threats to the planet like global warming will require Climate Reversal Specialists.

The next decade's jobs will correlate directly not just with automation but with the current challenges and trends directly weaving their ways into our everyday lives. Today we are going to look at some future jobs that may well become commonplace in the coming decades. Jobs that may seem like they belong in an episode of Westworld.

Space tourism could well become a massive market. The same way you plan a trip to a foreign country, you may soon be able to buy roundtrip tickets to a hotel off-world. As it sounds, space tourism is space travel for recreational, leisure, or business purposes. Blue Origin, SpaceX, and Virgin Galactic all have plans to bring ordinary people into space. There is even a space hotel in the pipeline.

According to MarketWatch, the value ofspace tourism is expected to reach about $21 billionby the end of 2026. In this futuristic job, you would educate space tourists on gravity, the moon, the history of space, Mars, and the planets beyond, all while on a spacecraft, in orbit around our planet, or in a space station.

You have heard it countless times before. "What you post on the internet is there forever." Unwanted data, personal information, or embarrassing photos of you could still be floating around the internet without you noticing.

Though millennials and generation Z seem to have come to terms with this fact, there are still many people who would like to keep any embarrassing public and private moments offline. Enter "Digital Removalist."

Digital removalists will be in high demand in the future as more and more people decide to protect their data, remove their digital footprint, or embarrassing information that could jeopardize future opportunities.

That's right. We can 3D print food. Start-ups are popping- up worldwide that are dedicated to creating delicious meals using specialized 3D printers that are not much more complicated than the desktop FDM printer used at home. However, the process of creating 3D printed food is not easy.

You have to find ways to not only create edible (and hopefully delicious) filaments but you need to do it in an economical way that works in tandem with the engineering of a 3D printing machine. In this futuristic job, you will be part 3D printing engineering expert, part top chef, and part chemist, coming up with recipes and new 3D printing techniques that match customer tastes or biological needs.

Many researchers and scientists believe that humanity will find a way to extend their lives by a few hundred years in the next few decades. You may even be able to hire a life extension technician to help you get there.

They would work with you using a combination of technology and cutting edge medicine to make you feel and look decades younger.

Currently, it is believed that 5.8 million cybercrimes happen each year. The future job market will need even more lawyers who specialize in issues on the internet.

With a cybercrime happening every 45 minutes, cyber law will become a booming industry, mixing law with extensive social media policy knowledge.

Not all future jobs will share the primary goal of maximizing the profits of shareholders. In the future job market, companies will try to both make money and find ways to do good. Regenerative Change Officers would be social entrepreneurs looking at ways to move their company beyond sustainability and focus on making the world a better place.

They will be involved in marketing profitable products and services that aim to turn hunger and poverty into sufficiency, war into peace, and catastrophic climate change intoplanetary balance.

Amid the pandemic, we have already seen the rise of digital education. This has led to a lot of questions surrounding education, such as whether students and teachers always need to be physically present.

Teachers specializing in techniques for the virtual classroom may soon become commonplace. Using mixed reality and virtual reality, teachers could appear in the classroom anywhere in the world, and could even teach thousands of students at once.

Jobs like this are already entering the market. Companies like Uneeq are creating digital humans in place of the digital customer service bots that many dread talking to. In this futuristic job, you would work to create digital humans that can be more personable with customers.

Your role as Machine Personality Designer would be to create highly-tailored digital humans based on data and powered by artificial intelligence. These digital humans would share almost identical personalities to customers and have similar tastes, to ensure a more smooth customer service experience.

Automation will be everywhere. So it makes sense that one of the top jobs in many future companies will center around automation. Expected to be one of the most sought after jobs on the market, Chief Automation Officers will be experts in AI and robotics, using these emerging technologies to do everything from sorting mail to creating efficient automotive assembly systems.

They will help design better autonomous vehicles, in-home robots, and even smart cities. Expect to see this future job just about everywhere. This job will play an important role in bridging the gap between businesses and the IT process.

Sherlock Holmes, but in 2025. As data becomes ever more valuable, it will become increasingly important for companies to be able to interpret and protect their own data and use it to answer major operational questions. This role will require the development of programs that can sort through large data sets and generate answers to business questions.

This potential new breed of engineer-scientist will play a vital role in tackling the challenges of global warming. This future job will call upon Climate Change Reversal Specialists to use and develop emerging technologies and innovative engineering techniques to protect and rebuild ecosystems around the world impacted by climate change, such as rainforests, ocean beds, coral reefs, and urban and rural areas.

The current space junk problem is an existential threat that could drastically impact everything from our global communications to our space program. As of 2019, there are estimated to be over 128 million pieces of debris smaller than 1cm floating above our Earth. Simultaneously, there are approximately 900,000 pieces from one to ten cm in size, while the current number of individual pieces of large debris is approximately 34,000.

Traveling at speeds up to17,500 mph, space debris is potentially very dangerous, and could damage spacecraft and satellites, and even jeopardize the lives of astronauts and future space tourists. Space junk recyclers would help to identify and track the orbital locations of this space junk and develop cost-effective methods to remove it from orbit.

Drones are set to become a common and effective means of delivering goods and packages to people all around the world. The FAA predicts that835,000 drone aircraft will be hitting the U.S skies by 2023. Aside from delivery, commercial drones will be used for research, pilot training, filming, building inspections, and a wide range of other activities.

Companies like Amazon and Google are working on launching drone projects for public use. Someone is going to need to help get all of these drones off the ground. In this industry, drone managers will be trained to organize, maintain, and direct fleets of drones using AI-driven logistics systems.

Retail and e-commerce experiences will need to find various new ways to attract customers to their store, to keep them engaged while there, and, of course, to get them to buy something.

Gamification could become a powerful tool in their arsenal. Gamification Marketing Specialists will work hard to keep customers engaged and entertained using well-thought-out, data-driven interactive experiences based on detailed knowledge of customer psychology and behavior.

AR technology is already here. Nevertheless, the adoption of the technology has been fairly slow. But all of that could change in the near future. AR glasses by companies like Apple and Facebook could breathe new life into augmented reality and mixed reality development.

AR is already starting to pop in retail stores, on our phones, in gaming, and on our computers. AR is still very much in its early stages, but the next decade could see more AR tools and applications. In this future job, augmented reality developers will create AR medical training experiences, remote classrooms, design and modeling applications, and, of course, augmented gaming experiences.

Which future job sounds the most exciting?

Life Extension Technology And Cannabis Formulations – Benzinga

This article was originally published on Hoban Law Group, and appears here with permission.

During the last ten years, my career has focused on cannabis formulation patents. As a patent attorney with three decades of experience, I am often asked what is the best cannabis formulation you have seen? My short answer is, There are many, and each is best. It just depends on what a person is looking to achieve.

My longer response typically comes in the form of a question: What do you want to achieve? I understand that one may wish to combat basil cell carcinoma, glioblastoma, dravet syndrome (i.e., childhood epilepsy), insomnia, manage pain, reduce inflammation, or stimulate the appetite. Women sometimes need relief on a monthly basis. My dog has lymphoma, one person exclaimed after the question was asked.

In 2010 I remembered hearing of the famous professor from the University of Colorado named Dr. Bob Melamede. While this molecular biologist and biochemist is famous for researching numerous aspects of Cannabis, I was enamored partly by his intellect and achievement and enamored fully by reports of his spry and energetic mode of operation. This was at a time when most should have already retired. How did he do it? Was the cannabis usage extending his life and making him spry and youthful?

My personal feeling is that life extension technology will soon be in vogue, and I believe that cannabis can play a role in conjunction with many life extension protocols. Yes, curing cancer does extend life in nominal terms, but I am talking about life extension as measured in telomere length as well as years. (a telomere is a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at the end of a chromosome, which protects the chromosome from deterioration associated with aging.)

This question of using cannabis for life extension has continued to arise in my mind. Currently, I have no clear understanding of how this will work, but time has generated a stronger desire to expand my understanding.

One interesting molecule that a cannabis client has stumbled upon is carbon 60, or C60. This molecule is sometimes called a buckyball after a famous inventor named Richard Buckminster Fuller, who theorized its existence. A buckyball is a group of sixty carbon molecules formed in the shape of a soccer ball. In his writings, Buckminster Fuller had theorized that this molecule could have a favorable impact on peoples health.

In 1984 this molecule was generated by British Researchers. In 1996 the Noble Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Curl, Kroto, and Smally, who devised ways to use plasma passed through a high-density helium gas to impact carbon species and form clusters of C60.

Much is now written on the effects of C60on health and aging. C60is a powerful antioxidant that is shown to extend telomeres in studies of those that use it. A breakthrough study was performed in France that attempted to determine toxicity limits of the molecule in rats and which ended up doubling the subjects life spans. This was much to the chagrin of the study organizers who, according to legend, were expecting their contractual payment only upon completion of the study.

The interesting part of this molecule is that it works because of an electrical charge phenomenon. The C60molecule can attract electrons from a free radical having extra electrons and donate the electrons to free radical lacking electrons. This process renders inert many free radicals, without destroying the C60molecule, and then repeats. Thus, the process inhibits damage to chromosomes due to harmful interactions with the former free radicals that are now rendered inert.

Now let us add cannabis to the formulation. C60 is formulated as a lipofullerene for efficient delivery. This is similar to how cannabinoids are delivered in cannabis oil, or as a formulated liposomal product, for example. Mixing the two active ingredients yields a new formulation.

In sum, one could piggyback the efficient delivery of both molecules into the same formulation. This enables the life-extending qualities of the C60to intermingle with the health-promoting qualities of the cannabinoids. In any event, the C60formulation is a good first step for life-extending technologies.

I personally would enjoy hearing about the many more life extension technologies as they evolve and are presented for consumer use.
