Aging gene linked to immunity

British scientists studying the genetics of aging said that experiments on laboratory worms showed that a specific gene is strongly linked to lifespan, immunity and disease resistance.  Since the gene, called DAF-16 in worms, is found in many animals and in humans, the finding could open up new ways to affect aging, immunity and resistance in humans, the scientists said.

Race Is On To Stop Fungus That Could Wipe Out 80% Of World’s Wheat

Race Is On To Stop Fungus That Could Wipe Out 80% Of World’s Wheat

Scientists working to develop wheat varieties resistant to a strain of “stem rust” 

The Ug99 fungus, called stem rust, could wipe out more than 80% of the world’s wheat as it spreads from Africa, scientists fear. The race is on to breed resistant plants before it reaches the U.S.

Nottage G-1 Glass Top Pool Table

The G-1 Glass Top Pool Table

Nottage G-1 Pool Table 

“Vitrik.” That’s the name of the patented coating that allows the Nottage G-1 pool table to be a pool table. Made of toughened glass, the table’s surface with the Vitrik coating on it mimics the rolling resistance of felt, meaning that although it looks like you’re just playing on glass, the balls behave as though they’re on a regular felt surface with slate underneath. The rest of the table looks slick but is built entirely to competition specs, with the possible exception of a rather creative ball return system.  (Video after the jump)
