Those gifs look like Cas is flirting with Dean… (What? I’m not going to apologize for saying that!)
this is the single gayest thing this show has done
let’s take gif one
where we have cas lightly stroking his beer bottle as he smiles and looks at Dean through his lashes (keep in mind he is supposed to be drunk)
then we have gif two
where he winks at Dean and Dean looks away from him and looks down.
and onto gif three
where Cas clinks their bottles together and smiles
Like Dean is 100% like “omg Cas you’re so drunk and Sam is here this is so embarrassing” because Cas is a flirty drunk and he is flirting with Dean
3D printing with stem cells could lead to printable organs
A potentially breakthrough 3D-printing process using human stem cells could be the precursor to printing organs from a patient’s own cells.
Some day in the future, when you need a kidney transplant, you may get a 3D-printed organ created just for you. If scientists are able to achieve that milestone, they may look back fondly at a breakthrough printing process pioneered by researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland in collaboration with Roslin Cellab, a stem cell technology company.
The printer creates 3D spheroids using delicate embryonic cell cultures floating in a “bio ink” medium. They end up looking like little bubbles. Each droplet can contain as few as five stem cells. Basically, this comes down to the printer “ink” being stem cells rather than plastic or another material.
Dr. Will Shu is part of the research team working on the project. “In the longer term, we envisage the technology being further developed to create viable 3D organs for medical implantation from a patient’s own cells, eliminating the need for organ donation, immune suppression, and the problem of transplant rejection,” Shu said in a release from Heriot-Watt.
Perhaps most importantly, the stem cells survived the printing process and remained viable. Shu says this is the first time human embryonic stem cells have been 3D printed. Printing out organs may be far down the line, but it’s just one potential application. The method could also be used to print out human tissue for drug testing.
The research results have just been published in Biofabrication under the title “Development of a valve-based cell printer for the formation of human embryonic stem cell spheroid aggregates.”
I don’t think this is “could be” scenario. This IS happening right now, and we absolutely will be using 3D-printing technology in this way, probably sooner than we even expect.
Fucking hell science is amazing and I want to squish and hug those people so hard for being so amazing ok.
Wow, that’s amazing!
These dancing bears will make you grateful you’re not dead. A family of brown bears looked as if they were playing Ring around the Rosie, the playground singing game.
What a happy day!
Even though viewers can expect a few laughs when Cas (Misha Collins) and Dean (Ackles) team up to take down a murderous angel in Tuesday’s episode, don’t expect everything to be like old times. The former angel still bears some resentment at Dean for kicking him out of the Men of Letters bunker a few episodes back. “First of all, Cas is pissed at Dean and rightfully so,” Collins says. “He’s feeling a bit jilted for having been thrown out on his butt.”
Dean is also harboring “a fair amount of guilt at sending [Cas] packing,” according to Ackles, but the actor explains he only did what was necessary to preserve the secret of Sam’s (Jared Padalecki) possession. “Obviously he’d much rather have Cas around,” Ackles says. “The family that Dean knows is very, very small and getting smaller.” And while Dean is forced to leave Sam at home with Kevin (Osric Chau) for this caper, Ackles says working this case with Cas is the first step in finding a way to reintegrate him into their lives.
