A radical procedure that involves replacing a patient's blood with cold salt water could retrieve people from the brink of death, says David Robson.
“When you are at 10C, with no brain activity, no heartbeat, no blood – everyone would agree that you’re dead,” says Peter Rhee at the University of Arizona, Tucson. “But we can still bring you back.”
Rhee isn’t exaggerating. With Samuel Tisherman, at the University of Maryland, College Park, he has shown that it’s possible to keep bodies in ‘suspended animation’ for hours at a time. The procedure, so far tested on animals, is about as radical as any medical procedure comes: it involves draining the body of its blood and cooling it more than 20C below normal body temperature.
Once the injury is fixed, blood is pumped once again through the veins, and the body is slowly warmed back up. “As the blood is pumped in, the body turns pink right away,” says Rhee. At a certain temperature, the heart flickers into life of its own accord. “It’s quite curious, at 30C the heart will beat once, as if out of nowhere, then again – then as it gets even warmer it picks up all by itself.” Astonishingly, the animals in their experiments show very few ill-effects once they’ve woken up. “They’d be groggy for a little bit but back to normal the day after,” says Tisherman.
Tisherman created headlines around the world earlier this year, when he announced that they were ready to begin human trials of the technique on gunshot victims in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The first patients will have been so badly wounded that their hearts have stopped beating, meaning that this is their last hope. “Cheating death with ‘suspended animation’” is how CNN put it; “Killing a patient to save his life” was the New York Times’ take.
The news coverage has sometimes offended Tisherman’s cautious sensibility. During our conversation, he comes across as a thoughtful, measured man, who is careful not to oversell his research. He is particularly wary of using the term ‘suspended animation’. “My concern isn’t that it’s inaccurate – it’s that when people think of the term, they think about space travellers being frozen and woken up on Jupiter, or Han Solo in Star Wars,” he says. “That doesn’t help, because it’s important for the public to know it’s not science fiction – it’s based on experimental work and is being studied in a disciplined manner, before we use it to stop people dying.” Rhee, who came to global attention after treating congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords after a shooting in 2011, tends to be bolder: he says he wouldn’t rule out longer-term suspended animation, in the distant future. “What we’re doing is beginning part of that experiment.”
I took this photo myself some years ago. I was traveling east bound on I-90 just around Erie PA when I looked towards the north and saw a strange cloud formation. When I arrived back home I placed the SD card from my phone into my computer to get a better look.

In the popular folktale, “The Princess and the Pea,” a young girl proves her princess-like sensitivity after a pea, inserted beneath 20 mattresses and 20 featherbeds, ruins her night of sleep. But if she had slept atop a thin sheet of scientists’ new touch-cloaking nanomaterial, she would have slept like a rock.
Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have created a material that sounds like something from a fictional tale: an elasto-mechanical unfeelability cloak. The polymer-based, scaffold-like structure can mask the presence of an object so it’s imperceptible to the human touch.
If you, for example, stepped on a large enough rock, the rubber and foam in your shoe would deform and result in a noticeable bulge. If your shoes were made of the cloaking material, it would disperse the pressure in such a way that you wouldn’t notice the rock beneath your foot

EMMY AWARD WINNER AND COLLECTIVE MINDS MEDIA LAUNCH KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR TERRIFYING ALIEN ABDUCTION FILM WITH A SOCIAL TWIST
Emmy Award-winning producer joins Las Vegas-based Production Company Collective Minds Media to launch Kickstarter campaign to fund a found-footage feature film – the most accurate account of alien abduction to date.
LAS VEGAS, NV – Found footage horror has been done with kids hunting witches in the woods; it’s been done with demons and poltergeists. But this is no ghost story.
Terrifying in a way that few other films are, ABDUCTEE is a found-footage style film that explores the bizarre and misunderstood world of alien abduction. Through a first- person account, we come to know the fear and mental anguish that befalls a suburban man as he attempts to unravel the mystery of what happens to him when he is alone in the middle of the night – and disappearing for huge spans of time with no memory of what took place.
But it’s not just a film – it’s a social movement. ABDUCTEE aims to be a new genre of horror that is so realistic and relatable, it wakes people up and breaks the silence about what’s really happening to them. It has been cited as the most frighteningly accurate portrayal of what abductees experience. Consultants Paranormal Expert James Smith and UFO Expert James Gilliland support the film and its involvement of the abductee community right from the start. “I think the movie as it is composed is a wonderful catalyst to bring … those subjects to light and lets people talk about it,” said James Smith.
Can a horror film be therapeutic? Absolutely, say the experts. This project is a revolutionary attempt at uniting the underrepresented community of alien abductees and giving them a voice. Funding the film via Kickstarter will allow the filmmakers to produce a movie that enlists the support of abductees and alien experts from the ground up. Crowdfunding will keep the film free of the control exerted by Hollywood executives and movie studios, which can destroy a film’s purpose and impact. It is the filmmakers’ goal that ABDUCTEE will illuminate the terrifying, stigmatized world of alien abductees and provide them with a common bond to enable group support and healing. The finished film will be accompanied by an online community resource established by the filmmakers that stands to bring in hundreds of thousands of real abductee accounts.
Writer/Director William Hopp was inspired to write ABDUCTEE after struggling with sleep paralysis for several years. After learning about the connection between sleep paralysis and alien abduction, he because obsessed with finishing the script. Once he completed it, his sleep paralysis immediately stopped – for over a year and a half. Now it’s suddenly back and Hopp knows it’s time for this story to be made. He reached out to Trisha Kirk, the Emmy Award-winning producer of A&E’s Intervention to collaborate on the project.
ABDUCTEE will only be funded if $140,000 is pledged by Monday, July 21, 2014 at 3:33am PST. Click here to be part of this groundbreaking film and social movement.
ABDUCTEE is a Collective Minds Media production, written and directed by William Hopp and produced by Trisha Kirk. William is the founder of Collective Minds Media. Trisha is a member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and the International Radio & Television Society. She was awarded an Emmy in 2009 for her work as a producer and director on the A&E documentary television program Intervention. She is also the Kickstarter campaign manager for ABDUCTEE.
William Hopp and Trisha Kirk are available for interviews.

The most common recommendation made by health experts in the area of produce selection is to choose “organic” varieties for maximum health benefits. We trust organic label certifications because they are supposed to comply with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations. Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed in organic practices, but that’s not always the case. Research by a Food Inspection Agency in Canada has found that nearly half the organic fresh fruits and vegetables tested in the past two years contained pesticide residue, .

Engage warp drive! Nasa reveals latest designs for a Star Trek-style spacecraft that could make interstellar travel a reality
By JONATHAN O'CALLAGHAN
Last month, Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan unveiled his next science-fiction blockbuster.
Called Interstellar, it envisages a future where travel to other stars is not only a possibility but a necessity, and tasks actor Matthew McConaughey with leading the main mission.
But a Nasa scientist claims such a mission isn’t necessarily just something reserved for science fiction - and has revealed a Star Trek-style ship that could make interstellar travel a reality.

In less than two decades, you won't just use your computers, you will have relationships with them.
Because of artificial intelligence, computers will be able to read at human levels by 2029 and will also begin to have different human characteristics, said Ray Kurzweil, a director of engineering at Google.
"My timeline is computers will be at human levels, such as you can have a human relationship with them, 15 years from now," he said. Kurzweil's comments came at the Exponential Finance conference in New York on Wednesday.
"When I say about human levels, I'm talking about emotional intelligence. The ability to tell a joke, to be funny, to be romantic, to be loving, to be sexy, that is the cutting edge of human intelligence, that is not a sideshow."
The Oscar winning movie 'Her,' which was about a man who fell in love with his operating system, foreshadowed many of Kurzweil's predictions about how artificial intelligence (AI) will evolve.
