Living Tissue Emerges From 3-D Printer
Harvard bioengineers say they have taken a big step toward using 3-D printers to make living tissue. They’ve made a machine with multiple printer heads that each extrudes a different biological building block to make complex tissue and blood vessels.
Their work represents a significant advance toward producing living medical models upon which drugs could be tested for safety and effectiveness.
It also advances the ball in the direction of an even bigger goal. Such a machine and the techniques being refined by researchers offer a glimpse of the early steps in a sci-fi healthcare scenario: One day surgeons might feed detailed CT scans of human body parts into a 3-D printer, manipulate them with design software, and produce healthy replacements for diseased or injured tissues or organs.

Paul Ryan stole his ‘brown bag lunch’ story from a book about a homeless child. Now he looks like an even bigger fool, as more information comes to light.
Paul Ryan’s “brown bag” story at the CPAC was stolen from a…
The legend of “Cropsey” – the escaped mental patient who lived in the abandoned tunnels of the Willowbrook mental hospital in Staten Island, NY, and came at night to snatch children off the streets. “Cropsey” remained just that, an urban legend, until the summer of 1987 when a 13-year-old girl with down syndrome disappeared from her neighborhood. Five weeks later, she was found buried in a shallow grave on the grounds of Willowbrook.
137. Good Will Hunting
Emotionally charged, vulnerable, character driven, and exquisitely written and acted, every re-watch of this film has me honing in on different moments, and feeling different levels of emotion. The relationship, the slow build to trust, that Will has with Sean as his therapist is very real, and completely moving, especially when the walls finally crack. I always leave this movie wanting to know more and longing to see what happens next, not just with Will and Sean, and Skylar, but with Chuckie and Morgan, too - a sign of a good story, when I am left wanting more.
