Scientists Create Artificial Womb That Could Help Prematurely Born Babies – What are your thoughts?

Adidas Wilson

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.

So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.

“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.

“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.

Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.

“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…

Beauty, skin deep

2

hello coloured life

‘Beauty is only skin deep’ they say. Then why is it that every emphasis is placed upon the appearance of a woman? The definition of that proverb is that a pleasing appearance is not a guide to character. When I ‘discover’ on Instagram all I literally see are females prancing about in their underwear, butts and boobs I like to call them.

The female essence had been reduced to butts and boobs…doesn’t that just make us proud? Look at yourself and say ‘I am a butt’ or ‘I am a boob’. Thats just makes me cringe to be honest. When we sit back and think about what we believe to be a attractive, we see that it’s all merely physical.

That rant over there brings me to this week’s blog post. As I am shedding the kgs and growing in my weight loss journey, I am discovering that I have unrealistic ideas of what…

New Season, New Me: Changing Your Skin Routine

JUSTAPEAK

After four months of playing in Jack Frost’s wonderland, our  skin tends to be quite unpleasant and dry to the touch. I can’t speak for everyone when I say this but what I do know is now is the time to welcome in the new season with open arms. The sun will be out more often, and your body will change its past routine. If you kept your skin velvety soft and hair unlike autumn leaves, Kudos to you! You understand the way seasons works.

We all anticipate for the spring to allow for us to put our feet up some and relax with all the lotions, layers of pants, and 32oz water jugs. In the real world, that’s not bound to happen. When one door closes, another opens. Yes- you still have to moisturize and drink water to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but not as much as you…

Lipstick has become a beauty staple for me the past few years. I wear it almost every day, and I get a lot of questions from friends and readers which types of lipsticks I wear and how I actually make it last all damn day. My friends are always pretty surprised that I can go most of the day, while eating and drinking, and still have my lips pretty much fully intact. So today, I am sharing  5 steps that will make you lipstick stand the test of time…or until you decide to wash your face. See below!

1. Exfoliate and moisturize
I wash my face every night, and I always make sure to exfoliate my lips because wearing lipstick as often as I do, it can easily dry out my lips. Some people use lip scrubs, but I found that using  a washcloth and water works just as well and is a cheaper, easier way…

“A red winged angel flew into amass of white clouds. Brief was her embark through the snow white surround.  Her curiosity was rewarded after passing through the cumulus completely. She returned on the sky blue path seeking her landing place among her kin. Landing within the village square she was met with eyes of awe and astonishment. Compliments of a change she herself was unaware of, directed her eyes to her own wings. An elder of the village made her way through the crowd, with tear filled eyes. She described the tint in her wings as pink, a shade known well amongst humans. The memories of her years spent as a guardian flooded her consciousness. Joy and sorrow danced in her heart, and her tears began to fall like raindrops. Like a harp and a lute, her stories carried melodies of truths of the newly found shade. She explained, The…

Just a quick note, my blog is primarily based on personal views and experience, sometimes referring to research and some background information, with the aim of helping anyone who may be suffering, or know of anyone suffering from a mental health illness. I haven’t written in a while, so let’s see how this goes. I would welcome any advice and feedback on my blogs, or your personal thoughts on the topic.
This post has quotes from some people that I know, with particular experiences with mental health illness. They have provided a personal account of their mental health illness.

These people would like to remain anonymous, so I have included just the statements that these people have said, with a short summary as to their mental illness. I have done this in the hope of raising some awareness about the ‘real life’ effects of a mental illness on the one…
