    For the nearly 1 million Americans a year who survive a heart attack but are left with a failing heart, a recent research breakthrough that successfully demonstrates the ability to convert scar-forming cardiac c...ells into beating heart muscle provides hope for their future. Thanks in part to funding from The Roddenberry Foundation, research and tests conducted at the Roddenberry Center for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine at Gladstone showed the ability to transform non-beating cells that normally form scar tissue into beating heart-muscle cells, creating stronger-than-ever hearts.
    This breakthrough finding may result in a much-needed alternative to heart transplants, for which donors are extremely limited.

    The global impact of this research is remarkable so make sure you share this with your friends!

    Arctic Sea-Ice Loss Didn’t Happen by Chance

    “In the end, only the increase in greenhouse gas concentration showed a physically plausible link with the observed sea-ice retreat. We expect a decreasing sea-ice cover for increasing greenhouse gas concentration, which is exactly what is observed,” Notz explains. The physical link between greenhouse gas concentration and sea ice is quite straightforward, he adds: “Greenhouse gases increase the downwelling thermal radiation. This radiation, in turn, is the major player in the heat budget of Arctic sea ice.”
