A ride in the Park and then some.
Four thousands of years, our thirst for the legendary Fountain of Youth has
been nearly as strong as our propensity for perpetuating the myth.
However, over the last 20 years, the fertile headwaters of molecular biology
have been pumping out anything but folklore. Not only have these waters yielded
a precipitous stretch in understanding the aging process, they’re potentially
guiding us closer to the source of everlasting youth.
From this flow now
comes word that biologists from the University of California, Berkeley have tapped
an influential longevity gene that can reverse cell degeneration associated with
aging. That’s right, they’re not just offering a sip from the fountain, they’re
turning back the clock at the molecular level.
The new study, published in Cell Reports, represents a major discovery and
offers new hope for development of targeted treatments for a long list of
age-related degenerative diseases, such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s and arthritis,
just to name a few.
The biologists, lead by UC Berkeley assistant professor of nutritional
science and toxicology Danica Chen, focused their attention on one protein in
particular: SIRT3. It’s one in a class of proteins called surtuins, long known
to regulate aging.
Biologists found that SIRT3 plays a significant role in helping aged blood
stem cells cope with the oxidative stress of the aging process. When the blood
stem cells of aged mice were infused with SIRT3, it regenerated new blood
cells, providing evidence of a reversal in the age-related degeneration of the
“This is really the first demonstration that sirtuins may be able to
actually reverse aging-associated degeneration,” Chen told Discovery News.
“We known aging can be regulated so we may be able to manipulate the
molecular pathways and slow down the process,” she added. “But there’s never
been a demonstration where we could reverse age. It’s really the next big step.”
Chen cited molecular biologist Cynthia Kenyon’s pioneering work in the early
1990s as perhaps the biggest breakthrough in understanding that aging is not a
random, uncontrolled process, but rather a highly regulated development. In
1993, Kenyon published a study in Nature that showed a single gene mutation in
a tiny worm (C. elegans) could double its lifespan, opening up the floodgates
of intensive studies on age manipulation.
“We know there are a lot of techniques out there,” said Chen. “For example,
you can use transgenic mouse models to upregulate sirtuins” to increase the
quality of a cell “but those only address the question of whether you can slow
aging. But you can’t really address the question of whether you could reverse
Unless, of course, you find the right key, which Chen and colleagues may
have found in SIRT3.
“We’re particularly interested in SIRT3,” Chen said, “because we found that
it’s highly enriched in hematopoietic stem cells.” These are blood stem cells,
highly regarded for their ability to completely reconstitute the blood system,
the underlying capability of a successful bone marrow transplant.
Also of interest is the location of where SIRT3 is found – in the
mitochondria, the cell compartment that helps control growth and death.
“What I liked so much about our study is that SIRT3 is mitochondrial,” said
study co-author Dr. Katharine Brown. “It’s certainly not acting as a
transcription factor, it’s effecting metabolism
and other aspects of cell signaling, which is clearly very important in aging.”
Brown conducted the research as a Ph.D. student in Chen’s lab.
To gauge the effects of aging,
researchers observed the blood system of young mice that had the SIRT3 gene
disabled. At first, the absence of SIRT3 made no difference on the young mice.
“This study definitely took a few years,” said Brown. “It was kind of
frustrating at the beginning because we weren’t seeing any differences between
the wild mice and the SIRT3 knockout mice.”

you it is DONE !!
Asiacell IPO “Fully Booked” Asiacell’s share sale has been fully
subscribed before its closing date, according to the IPO’s organizer. Shwan
Ibrahim Taha, chairman of Rabee Securities, confirmed to Bloomberg News: “The
offering is now comfortably covered with a good mix of retail and
institutional demand from within Iraq as well as institutional and high net
worth demand from abroad.“ Asiacell Chief Executive Officer, Diar Ahmed, told
the news agency: “Such big success will encourage other big entities to follow
suit and will help the Iraq Stock Exchange attract more institutional
investors into Iraq.“ The $1.3-billion fund-raising is the most for an IPO in
the MENA region since Saudi Arabian Mining’s share sale more than four years
ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. “Asiacell will force
international skeptics to reconsider their views about the exchange and Iraqi
equities, and potentially lead to increased investment,” Geoffrey Batt,
managing director of the $44 million Euphrates Iraq Fund, told Bloomberg.
Shares are due to start trading on the Iraq Stock Exchange on 3rd February.
Bud the Cowboy
A cowboy named
Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote
mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward
him out of a cloud of dust.
The driver, a
young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes,
RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy,
“If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd,
you give me a calf?”
Bud looks at the
man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks
at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, why not?”
The yuppie parks
his car, whips out his Dell® notebook
computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3® cell phone, and surfs to a
NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact
fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans
the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man
then opens the digital photo in Adobe
Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany
he receives an email on his Palm Pilot®
that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an
MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on
his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his
hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says,
“You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.”
right. Well, I guess you can take one of my
calves,” says Bud.
He watches the
young man select one of the animals and looks
on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then Bud says to
the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you
exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?”
The young man
thinks about it for a second and then says,
“Okay, why not?”
“You ‘re a
Congressman for the U.S. Government”, says Bud.
‘s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you
guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up
here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I
already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth
of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don
‘t know a thing about how working people make a living – or about cows, for
that matter. This is a herd of sheep.”
“Now give me
back my dog.”
AND THAT FOLKS
IS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS ALL ABOUT
If the coasts get clobbered the way some expect may happen, then having hemp
growing in the “high lands” may provide a source of fuel, among other
by-products from hemp, that could be unavailable from the popular and
convenient sources today (which depend on coastal-area refineries, which, if
the coasts get clobbered, may not survive whatever it is that’s coming).
Why Prohibition? To keep alternative fuels out of the marketplace during the
start of the auto industry. Hemp is one of those alternative sources of fuel.
It’s pretty well been clobbered as a “drug.” It was the exact
opposite early in this nation. Hemp is one of the sources for the fibers for
the ropes used for the sailing vessels, among other places we find
The beneficial by-products from hemp are numerous. It may be one of the crops
that helps whoever survives what’s coming survive. God [YAHUAH] willing, it’ll
be a crop that helps the entire nation survive what’s coming.
As with guns, as with raw milk dairies, as with goods and services of all
types, the “place” in which the feds have authority “to
regulate” is that “place” where goods and services are exchanged
for “funny money.” If the hemp farmers will insist on trading for
something, anything, other than “funny money,” they’ll have a
defense, at any rate, that may keep the feds at bay.
Don’t plan anything based on one email or even a series of emails. Get the
whole of the reality in mind first. That may be a considerable study. Just know
that “choice of law” is “everything” when it comes to the
“authority” to regulate, and where the commercial activity is
over/with/via “funny money,” i.e., to be extremely, overtly clear, if
the hemp is sold for “federal reserve notes,” in any form, whether
“paper” or “plastic,” those hemp farmers are dangerously
close to inviting federal regulatory authority right down on top of themselves.
May YAHUAH guide and protect those who call upon His name (which means, in the
main context, those who make it a habit of doing their absolute best to be
obedient to His Laws in everything they do) and who venture forth into the hemp
industry, which this nation, and likely this world, so badly needs to see

The Prepper’s Day Of Prayer
By Dr. Terry Cheek
Soul Survivor Broadcasting
“In 2012 after President Barack Obama
refused to endorse the national day of prayer we at Soul Survivor Broadcasting
and the Prepper Podcast Radio Network decided it was time to quit complaining
and start doing something, so we held ‘The Prepper’s Day of Prayer.’ on
February 3, 2013.
This year we will repeat the event and we want every person in America to
join us, right here on Prepper Podcast Radio Network, if you have something
close to you, your family, our nation; anything you want included just drop us
an email with
the request and let us know if you want names called out over the air of if you
prefer it to be an unnamed request.
America needs sincere prayer will you join us the first Sunday in February
for the second annual Prepper’s Day of Prayer.”
