Monsters Dominate Ridley Scott’s First ‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer

  Monsters Dominate Ridley Scott’s First ‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer Ridley Scott’s trademark disturbing monsters dominate Fox’s first trailer for “Alien: Covenant” — including one bursting out of a body and another slithering into a shower while a couple makes love. Fox released the trailer late Saturday night as an apparent Christmas present to “Alien” fans. “Alien Covenant” is the sixth film in the franchise. Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce are reprising their roles from “Prometheus” along with newcomers Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Billy Crudup, James Franco and Danny McBride.Scott is directing from a script by Jack Paglen, Michael Green, and John Logan.

Known as the mesentery, it was previously thought to be just a few fragmented structures in the digestive system.

But scientists have realised it is in fact one, continuous organ.

Although its function is still unclear, the discovery opens up “a whole new area of science,” according to J Calvin Coffey, a researcher at the University Hospital Limerick, who first discovered it.

"When we approach it like every other organ… we can categorise abdominal disease in terms of this organ," he told the Science Alert website. 

Thinnest Wire Ever Made Using Really Tiny Diamond Pieces

  Thinnest Wire Ever Made Using Really Tiny Diamond Pieces At just three atoms wide, the electrical wire is the thinnest possible, and can potentially be used in a wide range of everyday applications.Now imagine a wire that is only three atoms wide, or about 1,000 times narrower than human hair. If it helps, think of the difference between a hair strand and a pencil, and apply that same difference in scale to the imaginary wire and the hair strand. Existing as practically a one-dimensional material, such a wire would have extraordinary properties.

A new organ has been discovered hiding in plain sight inside the human body . Known as the mesentery , it was previously thought to be just a few fragmented structures in the digestive system. But scientists have realised it is in fact one, continuous organ .

Scientists have discovered a “ new organ ” that has been hiding in plain sight inside the human body — just don’t ask them to tell you what purpose it serves. Known as the mesentery , it was previously thought to be just a few fragmented structures.

“Now we have established anatomy and the structure. The next step is the function. If you understand the function you can identify abnormal function, and then you have disease.

“Put them all together and you have the field of mesenteric science.”

The research has been published in The Lancetmedical journal.

Following its reclassification, medical students are now being taught that the mesentery is a distinct organ.

Gray’s Anatomy, the world’s most famous medical textbook, has been updated to include the new definition. 

Medical students and researchers can now investigate what role the mesentery might play in abdominal diseases, which it is hoped could ultimately lead to new treatments.

The organ is a double fold of peritoneum - the lining of the abdominal cavity - that holds our intestine to the wall of our abdomen.

Dinosaur eggs took up to six MONTHS to hatch - which may explain why they were overtaken by evolution

  Dinosaur eggs took up to six MONTHS to hatch - which may explain why they were overtaken by evolution The lengthy incubation may have had a part in their extinction, exposing eggs and attending parents to predators and starvation .Scientists counted growth lines – like tree rings – on fossilised dinosaur embryos’ teeth to work out their age. Dr Darla Zelenitsky, of the University of Calgary, said: “Time within the egg is a crucial part of development with major ramifications.”The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that contrary to previous assumptions, dinosaur incubation is more similar to that of typical reptiles than of birds.

A new mysterious human organ has been discovered in the human digestive system called the mesentery , whose purpose isn’t yet fully understood, but its presence could hold the key to understanding and We know that this body we have is one of great beauty, mystery and information.

Writing in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology, scientists have officially announced the discovery of a new organ inside the human body . That’s right, there’s a brand new organ hiding in our abdomen and it’s only just been classified. Known as the mesentery

It was described by the Italian polymath Leanardo da Vinci in 1508, but it has been ignored throughout the centuries, until now.

Although there are generally considered to be five organs in the human body, there are in fact now 79, including the mesentery.

The heart, brain, liver, lungs and kidneys are the vital organs, but there are another 74 that play a role in keeping us healthy.

Drug That 'Melts' Cancer Coming To Australia .
Developed by a team of international and Australian scientists, venetoclax has just received Australian approval. Venetoclax's approval is for patients with relapsed or refractory CLL with 17p deletion - a mutation that makes the disease relatively resistant to standard treatment options - as well as for patients with relapsed or refractory CLL for whom no other treatment options are available.
