Japan’s asteroid probe left a big dark patch when it touched Ryugu

Japan's space agency JAXA is still celebrating the success of its first attempt to collect a sample of the asteroid Ryugu using the Hayabusa2 spacecraft, and it seems the asteroid itself is now left with a mark to prove it.In a new set of images released by JAXA we can see Ryugu is now painted with a large dark blob that now graces its dusty white surface. The change is due to dust that was kicked up from beneath the surface when the spacecraft fired its projectile, causing a cloud of debris...

China drafts rules on biotech after gene editing scandal

BEIJING (AP) — China has unveiled draft regulations on gene-editing and other new biomedical technologies it considers to be “high-risk.” The measures follow claims in November 2018 by Chinese scientist He Jiankui that he helped make the world’s first genetically edited babies. That roiled the global science community and elicited widespread outcry over the procedure’s […]

Investors Should Stick to Their (Accounting) Principles

To be fair, the Singapore-based and U.S.-listed company isn’t hiding its numbers based on generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Dig down to page 7, though, and you’ll discover that the GAAP figure was more than 20 percent lower at $827 million. Interestingly, if the release had led with this figure the company could have correctly pointed out that GAAP sales doubled from a year earlier.

Guaido's return to Venezuela to mark brazen defiance of Maduro

Then he made a play for Citgo. Now, Juan Guaido says he is headed back home to Venezuela in another challenge to President Nicolas Maduro. Guaido, recognized by most Western nations as the country's legitimate leader, slipped into neighboring Colombia last week to lead an ultimately failed effort to bring humanitarian aid into the crisis-stricken country.

Prototype prosthesis proffers proper proprioceptive properties

Researchers have created a prosthetic hand that offers its users the ability to feel where it is and how the fingers are positioned — a sense known as proprioception. The headline may be in jest, but the advance is real and may help amputees more effectively and naturally use their prostheses. Prosthesis rejection is a real problem for amputees, and many choose to simply live without these devices, electronic or mechanical, since they can complicate as much as they simplify. Part of that is the ...

Nigeria's Buhari wins second term as president: electoral commission results

Buhari faces a daunting to-do list, including reviving an economy still struggling to recover from a 2016 recession and quelling a decade-old Islamist insurgency that has killed thousands of people in the northeast, many of them civilians. Buhari of the All Progressive Congress party proved wrong those who doubted he could survive the blows of recession, militant attacks on oilfields, and Islamist insurgency that blighted his first term. The president won by 3.9 million votes, having garnered ...

‘Baby Bio’ for brain cells trial halted despite Parkinson's patients seeing 'miracle' results

Parkinson’s patients treated with a groundbreaking new therapy to regrow their brain cells have criticised a decision by regulators to stop trials as ‘sinful.’ In the biggest surgical trial ever for the disease, British patients had holes drilled into the heads and special ports implanted so that a naturally occurring protein could be infused directly into the brain over nine months. Described as ‘Baby Bio’ for brain cells, the Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) encourages the gr...
