DW: When it comes to humans living on other planets, such as Mars, we've tended to talk about technological solutions — space suits and protective habitats, for instance. But in your book, The Next 500 Years: Engineering Life to Reach New Worlds , you propose more fundamental, biological changes to our species. You also talk about a philosophical duty to preserve all forms of life. Sell us the idea! Christopher Mason: We normally think of physical or mechanical protective measures in space, or pharmacological, such as taking drugs to help us survive. We do that already. I argue for extending that by using biological mechanisms of protection and safety. For example, there are CAR-T cells, an engineered kind of T cell , that we use in my lab and routinely elsewhere. [Humans] purposely structure and use guided evolution and guided design of cells to keep people free of cancer. And no one bats an eye at that. There are trials that are using CRISPR [gene editing technology] in … [Read more...] about Sex, Mars, the universe and our next 500 years: A plan
Should draft legislation clear the final hurdles in the next few weeks, Morocco could become the second Arab country to legalize cannabis. Lebanon was the first in 2020. According to various international agencies, including the UN and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, Morocco is one of the world's largest producers of cannabis and the biggest supplier of illegal by-products such as hashish that are bound for the EU. Legalizing cannabis for medical and industrial purposes could have a positive impact on around a million subsistence farmers, mostly in the north of the country. The law has become one of the most divisive topics in the run-up to Morocco's national elections in September. It is hard to know whether the draft law will pass, Khalid Mouna, an associate anthropology professor at Moulay Ismail University in Meknes, northern Morocco, told DW. Mouna studies cannabis-grower communities. "The project is still up for debate in the first chamber … [Read more...] about Should the EU help legalize cannabis farms in Morocco?
A personal trainer who struggled with anorexia has transformed her life by focusing on pole dancing. Tash Turner was so unwell as a teenager that her weight plummeted to just six stone and she was told that she "could end up in a wheelchair" by the time she was 30. It was only when she went to university and discovered pole dancing exercise classes that she said something just snapped in her brain and she began to eat again, reports Birmingham Live . Previously, Tash had been very driven to be a high achiever in her sports and academic studies. She would arrive at school early, train during breaks and stay after school to improve her abilities in cross country, trampolining and rowing, eating the absolute minimum to get by. As her body started to fail under the stress of not eating, her mum took her to hospital for treatment but sadly, which was when she was warned she could end up in a wheelchair by 30. Today Tash is a personal trainer, helping others to get their body's … [Read more...] about Pole-dancing personal trainer transforms life after winning anorexia battle
Scam stories, it turns out, are a bit like buses – you wait for one then three all arrive at once. This week I’m looking at what happened when a reader was trying to insure his car. Lee Harvey needed to renew his policy but the previous one had cost him an arm and a leg. So the 19-year-old from Birmingham was keen to find a better deal. An advert on the Student Union notice board at university offering “cheap car insurance” looked absolutely ideal. He rang the mobile phone number on the flyer and spoke to a man called Gerry. He explained that he was a broker and that he specialised in getting cheap car insurance for students. He then asked Lee for all of his details and asked what his last insurance policy had cost him. At the end of the call he said he would get quotes and call Lee back. Some 30 minutes later he told Lee the good news that a quote had been obtained for him in the sum of £550 a year, which was far cheaper than his last policy. But there was a hitch. … [Read more...] about Student reveals how too good to be true car insurance deal from uni left him in debt – because it was entirely fake
