Scientists Make MAJOR Breakthrough in Quest to Clone Mammoth

Will we be eating Wooly Mammoth brisket in the near-future?

American children have long been obsessed with the ancient monsters that once galavanted across some version of our national landscape.

These beasts, whose fossils are found from sea to shining sea in our great nation, captivate us not only with their sheer size, but with their bizarre anatomy and ferocious capabilities.

Of course, the idea of somehow bringing these creatures back to life has long been a part of the pop culture vernacular thanks to films such as Jurassic park.

Unfortunately, dinosaur DNA isn’t quite as easy to work with as Hollywood wrote it, but scientists do feel somewhat optimistic about the possibility of bringing back another long-extinct creature:  The Woolly Mammoth.

This week, those efforts crossed a major threshold.

New findings indicate that the resurrection of mammoths is not a fantasy, a research team including members from Kindai University is saying, after cell nuclei extracted from the 28,000-year-old remains of a woolly mammoth were discovered to retain some function.

When placed in the ova of mice, the nuclei developed to a state just before cellular division, according to a paper published Monday in the British journal Scientific Reports.

The team includes researchers from Japanese and Russian universities. It has been working for about 20 years on a project to use cloning to resurrect mammoths, an animal that has long been extinct.

Luckily for scientists, they were able to locate an extremely well-preserved sample.

The cell nuclei used in the team’s recent findings were extracted from musculature and other tissue from Yuka, an about 3.5-meter-long female woolly mammoth excavated nearly intact in 2010 from permafrost in Siberia. When inserted into mouse ova, five out of 43 nuclei were observed to develop to a point just before the nuclei would split in two as a result of cell division.

Of course, there have long been ethical and moral concerns about the resurrection of extinct animals, with many of America’s faithful unenthused about the blurring line between science and divine creation.

NYC Restauranteurs Blast De Blasio’s Vax Mandates: ‘We’re Being Assaulted’

The trouble continues for Big Apple eateries.

Just days ago, a wild and unruly bit of viral video made headlines, and reignited a national debate about the possibility of vaccine mandates throughout our great nation.

So far, the only real federal vaccine mandate has come in the form of an order from the Biden administration, declaring that all federal employees would be required to receive an inoculation against COVID-19, as well as employees of any private company with more than 100 workers.

But there are plenty of local and private ordinances that do require vaccination, including a controversial proclamation in New York City that requires vaccines for all restaurant customers.  The aforementioned viral video depicted a group of Texan tourists physically assaulting a restaurant hostess that asked for their proof of vaccination in order to dine in their establishment.

This shocking incident has New York City’s restauranteurs crying foul.

“It’s gonna hurt my business for me to lose customers, to lose relationships with customers. We’re a neighborhood restaurant,” restaurant owner Massimo Felici said, according to NY1. According to the outlet, Felici said the mandate, barring unvaccinated people from dining indoors, has had a negative impact on his business.

“They’re making us police this. We are getting the ripple effect. We’re getting assaulted for it, accused for it whatever you wanna call it. That’s it. Period. It shouldn’t be us,” he added, noting the rules remain unclear to most, as unvaccinated individuals can still dine outdoors.

“You’d be surprised how many people are confused about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. If you read that, it makes it sound like you cannot come into my restaurant for dinner if you do not have the vaccination,” he said of the city’s signs.

Other establishment owners lamented the reality of the mandates being bad for business, especially as restaurants continue to struggle to reach pre-pandemic prosperity.

Neighbor Recalls Bizarre Camper Movements at Laundrie Residence

This changes EVERYTHING.

Published

on

Brian Laundrie is without a doubt the most sought-after man in America today, and with good reason.

Laundrie returned home to Florida from a cross-country road trip on September 1st, driving a van belonging to his travel partner and fiancée Gabby Petito.  Petito, however, was not with Brian upon his return.

The disturbing developments continued, as Laundrie quickly lawyered up and refused to cooperate with police who were now investigating Petito’s disappearance during their road trip.

Just over a week ago, Brian went missing.  Just days after that, Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest with a coroner suggesting that her cause of death was homicide.

The search for Brian Laundrie has largely been contained to the vast Carlton Reserve in Central Florida, where the young outdoorsman was said to have gone hiking before he vanished.

But neighbors are now revealing new details that could make Brian even more difficult to locate. 

A couple who live across the street from Brian Laundrie and his family told Fox News on Wednesday that they saw the 23-year-old and his parents leave their home in a truck with an attached camper about a week after Laundrie returned home alone from a cross-country road trip with his fiancée, Gabby Petito.

Authorities are still searching for Laundrie, who has been missing since last Tuesday and is a person of interest in Petito’s death, which has been ruled a homicide.

Charlene and William Guthrie, who moved to North Port, Florida, this summer, said they told authorities they’d seen Christopher and Roberta Laundrie attach what appeared to be a new camper to their truck and drive off for what the Guthries assumed was a weekend camping trip with their son.

“I saw them doing some work. And then when they prepared for their trip, I saw them loading the camper,” William Guthrie told Fox.

Laundrie is considered to be a skilled outdoorsman who may be able to remain “off the grid” for a considerable length of time, which has made the entire situation all the more worrisome for those seeking justice for Gabby Petito.
