Lab-Grown Heart Muscles Have Been Transplanted Into a Human For the First Time

An anonymous reader quotes a report from ScienceAlert: On Monday, researchers from Japan's Osaka University announced the successful completion of a first-of-its-kind heart transplant. Rather than replacing their patient's entire heart with a new organ, these researchers placed degradable sheets containing heart muscle cells onto the heart's damaged areas -- and if the procedure has the desired effect, it could eventually eliminate the need for some entire heart transplants.

Kleiner Perkins, one of the most storied franchises in venture capital, has already invested much of the $600 million it raised last year and is now going back out to the market to raise its 19th fund, according to multiple sources. The firm, which underwent a significant restructuring over the last two years, went on an investment tear over the course of 2019 as new partners went out to build up a new portfolio for the firm — almost of a whole cloth. Kleiner Perkins gets back to early-stage w...

Tesla temporarily closes Shanghai factory over coronavirus concerns

Tesla has shut down its Shanghai factory as part of a broader order by the Chinese government to stem the spread of the coronavirus in the region, a closure that will delay Model 3 production and ultimately put slight downward pressure on profits in the first quarter, the automaker’s finance chief Zach Kirkhorn said during an earnings call Wednesday.

A dead NASA space telescope and an old Air Force satellite likely avoided colliding over Pittsburgh on Wednesday, beating 'alarming' odds

A dead NASA telescope and an old US Air Force satellite seem to have avoided a high-risk collision in space above Pittsburgh on Wednesday evening. As the satellites approached one another, experts called the odds of a crash "dangerous" and "alarming," since a head-on collision could have produced nearly 300,000 chunks of debris that would threaten other spacecraft. NASA said the Air Force, which tracks satellites for the government, had not notified it of any potential collision. Experts expec...

NASA finds real uses for VR and AR in astronomy and engineering

Years after the advent of decent VR hardware, there are still precious few ways the technology has been employed as anything other than a game or gimmick. One team at NASA, however, has been assembling useful science and engineering applications, with promising and unique results. Studying the astronomical number of stars in our galaxy is generally done using legacy tools, scattered databases, perhaps even paper and pencil. And as such it can be hard to use that great multi-purpose pattern re...

Blizzard Now Claims Full Copyright For Player-Mode 'Custom Game' Mods

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: As influential as Warcraft III was in the real-time strategy genre, the game's most enduring legacy might be as the basis for genre-defining, fan-made custom game spin-offs like Defense of the Ancients (aka Dota) and Auto Chess in its wake. Now, Blizzard is taking steps to ensure it retains complete ownership of any such custom games that originate from its titles in the future, including those that come out of Warcraft III's recently releas...

According to Google, I'm right in the middle - and my beauty preferences seem to confirm this. Like any upstanding Gen Z-er, I became a devoted fan of Euphoria and its vibrant beauty looks last year; similar to many of my millennial friends, I enjoy keeping things simple and familiar.

Facebook will pay $550 million to settle class action lawsuit over privacy violations

Facebook will pay over half a billion dollars to settle a class action lawsuit that alleged systematic violation of an Illinois consumer privacy law. The settlement amount is large indeed, but a small fraction of the $35 billion maximum the company could have faced. Class members — basically Illinois Facebook users from mid-2011 to mid-2015 — may expect as much as $200 each, but that depends on several factors. If you’re one of them you should receive some notification once the settlement is ...
