WHEN SAM NIXON, AN ARCHAEOLOGIST with the British Museum, excavated ancient coin molds in Tadmekka, Mali, in 2005, it triggered a several-year exploration of how #medieval #Africans purified the #gold they were using for their #currency. Nixon had found little droplets of highly refined gold left over in the molds—which have been dated to the 11th century—as well as curious fragments of #glass. Now #scientists have recreated the advanced process behind the #purification method they used then.

Morozov Microchip....In fact a few days ago, some Russian scientists, the Rostov region, became the protagonists of an incredible discovery: a stone with a microchip 250 million years old (some even speak of 450 million years). However thses dates are called into question without checking the c-14 content in the stone.
According to government educators this stone would indicate that 250 million years ago an unknown civilization populated our Earth;a discovery-fetched and fantastic.

And so you’ve got the #green movement creating stories that instill #fear in the public. You’ve got the #media echo chamber — #fake #news — repeating it over and over and over again to everybody that they’re killing their #children, and then you’ve got the green #politicians who are buying #scientists with #government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials, and then you’ve got the green businesses, the rent-seekers and the #crony #capitalists who are taking advantage of massive #subsidies, huge tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their technologies to make a fortune on this, and then of course you’ve got the scientists who are willingly, they’re basically #hooked on government grants.

For years, scientists have been trying to come up with a better way to protect people against tuberculosis, the disease caused by infection with the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) bacteria. Texas Biomedical Research Institute Professor Jordi Torrelles, Ph.D., says new hope is on the horizon after a recent experiment performed in mice showed great promise. The study was published in the journal Mucosal Immunology.
