A CURE FOR CANCER? Details Emerge Regarding Massive Israeli Breakthrough

We can’t avoid carcinogens these days, so it is imperative that these scientists continue their work.

Cancer is much like the sun, in that the disease will touch our lives in one way or another unless we live in a cave.  Alone.

The disease is both prevalent and pervasive, oftentimes caused by our own need to push the levels in human ingenuity.  Instead of bending over to pull weeds, we use Monsanto’s Round-Up products…and they give us cancer.  Instead of drinking a sugary soda, we turn to something with the word “diet” in front of it.  These often contain a carcinogen known as aspartame.

Beyond these choices, we still have the Fukushima plant in Japan spewing radiation into the Pacific Ocean at a constant and alarming pace, as well as everyday nuisances like the aforementioned sun, all of which can contribute to our specie’s susceptibility to the disease.

Now, however, a breakthrough in cancer treatment may have finally occurred.

A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.

“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

As with anything in the medical field, the treatment is still several trials aways from widespread use.

This obviously hasn’t stopped these scientists from celebrating, however, knowing that they may be on the road to one of the world’s greatest discoveries.

Police Say Buffalo Supermarket Shooting was Racially Motivated

Local authorities described the crime as “pure evil”.

On Saturday, a young gunman walked into a quiet grocery store in Buffalo, New York and opened fire.

The scene was described as chaotic and “armageddon-like”, as the killer stalked through the store expressionless, cold, and live-streaming the whole thing to the internet.  When the horror ended, ten were dead, several others injured, and the city of Buffalo was left scarred.

Now, in a deplorable revelation, police are disclosing that the crime was racially motivated.

An 18-year-old white gunman shot 10 people to death and wounded three on Saturday at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood of upstate New York, before surrendering after what authorities called an act of “racially motivated violent extremism.”

Authorities said the suspect, who was armed with an assault-style rifle and appeared to have acted alone, drove to Buffalo from his home several hours away to launch the afternoon attack that he broadcast in real time on social media platform Twitch, a live video service owned by Amazon.com.

Eleven of the 13 people struck by gunfire were Black, officials said. The two others were white. The racial breakdown of the dead was not made clear.

Hateful online content has been attributed to the killer.

A document circulating online that appeared to have been written by the killer sketched out a to-do list for the attack, including cleaning the gun and testing the livestream.

In addition, a 180-page manifesto outlining ‘The Great Replacement Theory’ – the idea that white people are being replaced by minorities in the United States and other countries – also circulated online, reportedly authored by Gendron.

The suspect has suggested that he chose this particular grocery store on account of the high minority demographics within the ZIP code, further corroborating his hateful basis.

Wearable Google Device Could Translate Language in Real Time

WHOA!

While there are certainly plenty of reasons to worry about the never-ending march into the technological dystopia before us, we have to admit that some of what were seeing is still pretty darn cool.

For many of us, it’s as though we’re living in an episode of The Jetsons.  Self-driving cars, video phone calls, apps that can tell you what song you’re listening to in the blink of an eye.  These are all revolutionary pieces of technology that we have gained for ourselves in merely the last decade or so.

This week, however, Google may have just taken the cake on powerful consumer electronics, teasing a pair of glasses that can translate languages nearly in real-time.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday teased a pair of smart glasses capable of translating languages in real time.

Pichai showed a video demo of the glasses during Google’s I/O developer summit. While they’re still just a prototype, Google suggested the glasses can show live language translations to the person wearing them.

So, someone with the augmented reality glasses might be able to understand what another person is saying just by reading captions that are presented through the lenses while the other person speaks.

There was no indication as to whether or not the glasses would ever be available to the public, however.
