    Fire in the Sky: Cosmic Collisions, Killer Asteroids, and the Race to Defend Earth with Gordon L. Dillow
    We owe many of science?s most important discoveries to the famed Meteor Crater, a mile-wide dimple on the Colorado Plateau created by an asteroid hit 50,000 years ago. In his masterfully researched Fire in the Sky, Dillow unpacks what the Crater has to tell us. Prior to the early 1900s, the world believed that all craters on the Earth and Moon were formed by volcanic activity. Not so. The revelation that Meteor Crater and others like it were formed by impacts with space objects has led to a now accepted theory about what killed off the dinosaurs, and it has opened up a new field of asteroid observation, which has recently brimmed with urgency. Dillow looks at great asteroid hits of the past and spends time with modern-day asteroid hunters and defense planning experts, including America's first Planetary Defense Officer.
    Gordon is a veteran journalist with more than four decades of experience as a reporter, war correspondent and columnist.  He has written for the Los Angeles Times, the old Los Angeles Herald Examiner, the Orange County Register and other newspapers, and has also contributed articles to a number of magazines, including the Columbia Journalism Review, Los Angeles Magazine and American Heritage.

  • Immune Receptor Cell

    in Science

    Immune receptors are protein molecules, usually expressed on the membrane of immune related cells. These receptors can interact with their corresponding ligands to further regulate immune responses. Immune checkpoints and toll-like receptors are important molecules in the immune system.
    Immune checkpoints are proteins which can turn up or turn down signals in the immune system. Inhibitors of immune-checkpoint proteins have been considered as new targets for cancer immunotherapies. To accelerate research progress of immune-checkpoint proteins, we have developed stable cell lines expressing the most popular immune checkpoints.

  • PARANORMAL WEDNESDAY with Lennis at 6 pm PST

    in Science

    Paranormal. A paranormal phenomenon is different from hypothetical concepts such as dark matter and dark energy. Unlike paranormal phenomena, these hypothetical concepts are based on empirical observations and experimental data gained through the scientific method.
    Paranormal investigation is the examination of phenomena that cannot be explained by normal scientific examination. Generally, paranormal investigation deals with ghosts, ESP, psychic phenomena, etc. By definition, a supernatural or paranormal phenomenon is an event that defies explanation in terms of the typical human experience. Examples of paranormal phenomena include ghosts, cryptids, telekinesis, and other forms of psychic powers or supernatural entities. It is something that science can't explain; at least not yet.  Let's discuss your experiences.  Please call in and share.  The Chat Room is also open for discussions. 
     Please join us in the Chat Room with your opinions or call us on the show phone: 646 - 727 - 2914.  Website:  www.theessenceofsuccess.net   Is there a subject you would like to see discuss, contact us on website and leave a message or comment.  

  • Grieving At Your Own Pace

    in Psychology

    we all grieve at a certain Pace. Just because somebody has gone 20 years ago does not mean that that person has gotten over them or she stopped grieving. The love that we have for another person cannot be stopped in a matter of time is countless and can go on for eternity.

  • cell line generation

    in Science

    Stable cell lines with specific gene over-expression or knock-down are very helpful in gene function analysis, target discovery, target validation, assay development, and compound screening. However, generation of stable cell lines is a time-consuming and expensive process.

  • Part 9: CUTV News Radio Welcomes Back Regenerative Medicine Pioneer Joy Kong

    in Medicine

    LOS ANGLES, CA -- Dr. Kong is the founder and director of the Thea Center for Regenerative Medicine which is constantly addressing the factors that contribute to declines in the aging process. Dr. Kong and her proteges have achieved remarkable success using regenerative medicine treatments, cultivated from the latest in science and technology. She has consulted with regenerative medicine experts from around the world and lectured extensively on the subject of stem cells. She utilizes these cells herself to enhance her vitality, and seeks to help a great many more, noting that making a real difference is what first led her to become a physician. The Center’s name Thea comes from a Greek word for light, and this awesome doctor brings things to light.
    In order to pursue her dreams, Dr. Kong had to leave China, and she has written a memoir about those years and her difficult journey. It is titled Tiger of Beijing and the doctor admits she is very much like a tiger. She is bright, with a nature that centers on constant and focused pursuits.
    In this last part of her extended radio series, Dr. Kong is going to help listeners grasp all the realities of stem cell therapies—the evidence-based science, the concentration and purity of formulation, the claims one can and cannot make when it comes to changing the course of disease or health. She is also going to tell us more about her new book, what inspired it, and how this memoir can help others to rise above adversity and stick to their goals. These are deep and fascinating subjects, but Dr. Kong’s Joy-ful manner make it all so entertaining to learn.

  • Cas9 Stable Cell Lines

    in Science

    CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) / Cas9 (CRISPR associated protein 9) system is adapted from a naturally occurring bacterial immune system which can protect bacteria from damage caused by phage infection. As an unimagined tool for genome engineering, CRISPR/Cas9 is now commonly used. Compared with ZFNs and TALENs, CRISPR/Cas9 employs sgRNA (single guide RNA) to specify editing which makes the system more precise, time/cost-saving and quite valuable for high-throughput genome editing. So far, a large number of published papers have involved the use of CRISPR/Cas9 technology.

  • GPCR Cell Line

    in Science

    G protein–coupled receptors (GPCRs) are a large family of seven transmembrane protein receptors found in eukaryotes. Coupling with G proteins, these receptors are activated by binding to diverse extracellular ligands including light-sensitive compounds, odors, pheromones, hormones, and neurotransmitters etc. The activated GPCRs further induce intracellular signal transduction pathways and, ultimately, cellular responses. GPCRs are involved in a wide variety of physiological processes and many diseases. To date, many medicinal drugs are GPCR-targeting, and there is an increasing interest in the study of discovering novel GPCR-related drug candidates.

About Science

Millions tuned in to see the first images beamed back to Earth the night that NASA's Curiosity landed on Mars. We live-streamed with baited breath as Felix Baumgartner set world records with his freefall from the edge of space, and marveled at the news of a successful 36-hour face transplant. From astronomy to medicine and every discipline in between, science gets us talking in record numbers. Whether you know more about Big Bang Theory the TV show than you do the cosmological model, you'll find thousands of answers on BlogTalkRadio from scientists, historians, authors, TV stars and more about popular topics like biopharmaceuticals, hydroponics, geology, solar energy, climate change, forensics, creationism vs. evolution, quantum physics, stem cell research, even UFO and Bigfoot sightings.
