Stem Cells Seem Speedier in Space

Scientists are sending stem cells to the International Space Station to test whether these cells proliferate faster in microgravity without suffering any side effects.

HOUSTON, TX, March 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Growing significant numbers of human stem cells in a short time could lead to new treatments for stroke and other diseases. Scientists are sending stem cells to the International Space Station to test whether these cells proliferate faster in microgravity without suffering any side effects.

Therapeutic uses require hundreds of millions of stem cells and currently no efficient way exists to produce such quantities. Previous research suggests that microgravity could help, and the space station is home to the nation’s only national lab in microgravity.

Some types of stem cells grow faster in simulated microgravity, according to Abba Zubair, a researcher at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Zubair is principal investigator for the Microgravity Expanded Stem Cells investigation, which is cultivating human stem cells aboard the space station for use in clinical trials back on Earth. He holds a doctor of medicine degree in transfusion medicine and cell therapy and a doctorate of philosophy in tumor immunology.

Human stem cells are cells that have not yet specialized in function and can divide into a spectrum of cell types, rejuvenating and repairing tissue throughout a person’s lifetime. Stem cells in every organ of the body, including skin and bones, maintain those organs and repair tissue by dividing and differentiating into specialized cells.

Harvesting a person’s stem cells and growing enough of them for use in therapies has proven difficult, though. Researchers have successfully grown mesenchymal stem cells, found in bone marrow, but growing sufficient quantities takes weeks. That could be too late for treatment of some conditions.

„Stem cells are inherently designed to remain at a constant number,“ Zubair explains. „We need to grow them faster, but without changing their characteristics.“

The first phase of the investigation, he adds, is answering the question: „Do stem cells grow faster in space and can we grow them in such a manner that they are safe to use in patients?“

Investigators will examine the space-grown cells in an effort to understand the mechanism behind microgravity’s effects on them. The long-term goal is to learn how to mimic those effects and develop a safe and reliable way to produce stem cells in the quantities needed.

The second phase will involve testing clinical application of the cells in patients. Zubair has been studying treatment of stroke patients with lab-grown stem cells and plans to compare those results with use of the space-grown stem cells.

„What is unique about this investigation is that we are not only looking at the biology of the cells and how they grow, but focusing on application, how we can use them to treat patients,“ he says.

The investigation expands existing knowledge of how microgravity affects stem cell growth and differentiation as well as advances future studies on how to produce large numbers of stem cells for treating stroke and other conditions.

The faster that happens, the better for those who could benefit from stem cell therapies.

Professional Architect Turns Architectural Method into Tips for Inspired Living

Karen Otis‘ new book „Be the Architect of Your Life“ Launches in April 2017

LOS ANGELES, CA, March 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Professional architect Karen Otis had her world turned upside down in 1999 after discovering her partner’s infidelity. As she dealt with the emotional aftermath, she discovered that one thing in her life remained steady and constant: her architectural work. That’s when she decided to take close look at what worked so well for architecture and see what happened when she applied those principles to life.

„I reassembled my life like I would a building,“ Karen shared. „Through the Architectural Method, I was able to discover what the vision of my life was and determine what parts should stay intact and which parts were not fixed in place and needed reevaluation. I was able to visualize and manifest my vision. In doing so, I found the love of my life, my true life purpose, and my deepest happiness.“

Karen created an Architectural Method for living, implemented it in her own life, and began helping others who came to her amidst challenging life struggles. Now, she has written an informative and transformational new book on this method:

Be the Architect of Your Life: Design Build, and Start Living a Life Inspired.

The book launches on April 1, 2017 and features Karen’s Architectural Method:

– Step 1 – Site Study
– Step 2 – Explore Historical Models
– Step 3 – Create a Wish List
– Step 4 – Absorb
– Step 5 – Envision a Vision
– Step 6 – Begin to Draw
– Step 7 – Allow the Vision to Lead
– Step 8 – Definition Is In the Details

Karen Otis is an architect, life builder and author of the revolutionary new book that uses architectural wisdom to rebuild lives from the ground up–„Be the Architect of Your Life: Design Build, and Start Living a Life Inspired.“ Using her Architectural Method, Karen takes home-building strategies and applies them to life’s biggest hurdles. Catch her at one of her nationwide speaking events or work with her in one-on-one life-building sessions and group workshops.

Mutants in Microgravity

A proof-of-concept investigation, Nanobiosym Genes, is sending two strains of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to the International Space Station.

HOUSTON, TX, March 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Bacteria may mutate more rapidly in space and scientists theorize patterns of those mutations could help predict how pathogens become resistant to antibiotics. Such predictions could, in turn, be used to develop new drugs to use against those pathogens. Antibiotic resistant pathogens or bacteria is a growing world-wide health concern. The long-term use of many common antibiotics has led to some diseases becoming resistant to drug therapy, which can lead to longer and more complicated illnesses.

A proof-of-concept investigation, Nanobiosym Genes, is sending two strains of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to the International Space Station. Investigators will compare patterns of their mutations to the same organisms grown on Earth in order to refine computational algorithms that predict mutations leading to antibiotic resistance.

BioServe Space Technologies at the University of Colorado, Boulder integrated this investigation, which is hosted in four BioCells Habitats and BioServe’s Space Automated Bioproduct Lab (SABL).

„More than 25 years ago, I had the hypothesis that environment has an effect on how genes mutate and evolve, or express themselves,“ principal investigator Anita Goel, chairman and scientific director at Nanobiosym Inc in Cambridge, Massachusetts, said. Goel holds a doctorate of philosophy in physics and a doctor of medicine degree. „This investigation allows me to study whether we can make mutations happen by changing the environment. The first step is to understand, everything else being the same, how does microgravity affect the rate and the pattern of mutations? Some data suggest that microgravity speeds up mutations, but we don’t know the mechanism of how the environment might play a role.“

Data from the investigation can define the mutational spectrum. Combining that with algorithms can improve the ability to predict mutations, including those that lead to drug resistance.

„We can model which way drug resistance will go and use that to develop better, smarter drugs,“ Goel said. „A bug can mutate in the presence of a drug and become resistant. We’re trying to get ahead of that, predict those mutations, and be ready with a drug when they show up.“

While this work is starting with infectious diseases, it can potentially be used with anything that has a DNA marker, including cancer.

There are two key steps: first, a tool that analyzes DNA or RNA, and second, algorithms to determine the right therapy for the particular disease. Goel’s company, Nanobiosym, has developed a device called Gene-RADAR that conducts the first step.

„In principle, we can provide real-time diagnosis of any disease with an RNA or DNA signature or genetic fingerprint,“ she said. „Ultimately, we can build tools to decentralize health care delivery on Earth, to diagnose diseases in real time in a village in Africa or your own home, just with a drop of blood or saliva. Right now those tests can take weeks to months. The device fits in your hand, so we also can put it on the space station to do analysis and research.“

That real-time analysis has important applications in space. Currently, experiments aboard the space station are brought back to Earth for gene analysis. The device could conduct some analyses in space and send only the data back to Earth. Astronauts could immediately test for DNA life forms in samples collected on Mars, for example, or diagnosis their own infections.

Mutant pathogens in space hardly stand a chance.

Ogden’s Own Distillery Celebrates New Product Release and Prestigious Competition Results

Ogden’s Own Distillery announced the release date for Madam Pattirini Gin and Porter’s Apple Liqueur to the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC).

OGDEN, UT, March 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Ogden’s Own Distillery announced the release date for Madam Pattirini Gin and Porter’s Apple Liqueur to the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC). The company also announced results from the 2017 Denver International Spirits Competition where Five Wives Vodka and Porter’s Peach Liqueur received gold medals and Madam Pattirini Gin and Porter’s Apple received silver medals. These were the companies only products entered in this year’s competition.

Both silver medal winning products, Madam Pattirini Gin and Porter’s Apple Liqueur, will be shipped to the state of Utah on April 3, 2017 and the company anticipates they will begin to appear on DABC store shelves around April 11.

„We’ve been waiting for a few months on the DABC to send us an order for our most recent creations,“ managing partner Steve Conlin explained. „It’s nice that it coincided with the release of this great news regarding contest results.“

Madam Pattirini Gin is made from juniper, bergamot, coriander, cardamom, Nigerian ginger, and Sicilian lemon in small runs of less than 1,000 bottles at a time. All bottles are individually hand-numbered by batch and bottle.

As the 35th child of LDS Prophet Brigham Young, B. Morris Young AKA Madam Pattirini was one of the more interesting and little know figures of the Old West. In 1895, he began publicly performing in drag as an „Italian opera diva“ under the pseudonym „Madam Pattirini“. Young performed as Pattirini in north and central Utah venues from 1885 to the 1900s. He could produce a convincing falsetto, and many in the audience did not realize that Pattirini was Young. Much like people will be surprised that a great gin comes from Utah!

Porter’s Apple Liqueur extends the company’s flavored whiskey brands which pay homage to the infamous Porter Rockwell – a legend during the early days of the LDS church where he was bodyguard for founder Joseph Smith and served as a deputy marshal in Utah. Rockwell was known for heavy-handed enforcement and the killing of many men.

Porter’s Apple joins Porter’s Fire cinnamon-vanilla and Porter’s Peach in the Porter’s family of whiskey liqueurs.

„We now have eight award-winning products on shelves in Utah as well as other states like Michigan and in stores like Total Wine & More across the country,“ Conlin said. „Utah’s largest locally-owned distillery keeps growing!“

Underground Herbal Spirit, produced by Ogden’s Own Distillery, was honored with a gold medal in the 2014 Denver International Spirits competition.

The Denver International Spirits Competition is judged by a panel consisting of top sommeliers, retail buyers, journalists, mixologists and beverage directors from around the world. Learn more at www.denverspiritscomp.com.

About Ogden’s Own Distillery:
For nearly eight years Ogden’s Own Distillery has been making craft spirits in Utah. As Ogden’s first licensed distillery since the 1800’s their first product, Underground Herbal Spirit, captures the feeling of the rowdy, early days of Ogden. Underground Herbal Spirit won a prestigious „Double Gold“ at the 2010 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and „Best Liqueur“ at the 2012 Spirits of the America’s. Ogden’s Own also makes the critically acclaimed Five Wives Vodka brands, Porter’s Fire, Peach and Apple Whiskey Liqueurs and Madam Pattirini Gin. www.OgdensOwn.com

Event!t Pty – Are These 3 Insecurities Impacting Your Leadership Potential?

Sydney-based event marketing specialists, Event!t Pty, have been discussing workplace insecurities and the impact they can have on leaders and their teams.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, March 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Having made waves on Australia’s East Coast, personalised marketing pioneers Event!t Pty credit their success to good communication and their honest and open attitude to normal workplace pressures. The company are wary of the negative impact insecurities can have on both the leader and their team members, and make a conscious and consistent effort to discuss these issues openly.

About Event!t Pty: http://www.eventit.com.au/about-us/

„It is important not to suppress any insecurities you may be experiencing at work“, a spokesperson for the company expressed, „Instead we must face them, establishing the cause and knocking them on the head before they can develop and consequently affect other people.“

It has been proven that most leaders who treat their staff with contempt in the workplace, whether this is in a demanding or demoralising manner, are suppressing insecurities. Developing bad behaviours is a typical result of harbouring insecure feelings, and Event!t Pty is aware of this. „We believe there are common insecurities that can trouble all professionals at some point in their careers, regardless of their ranking.“

To make sure new leaders don’t fall victim to becoming the insecure boss Event!t Pty has researched three common workplace insecurities, and how to overcome them:

Talent

Comparing themselves to co-workers is a slippery slope for new leaders. Being intimidated by talented colleagues can result in a lack of confidence and cause a leader to convince themselves others are more talented than they are. The important thing for leaders to remember is that everyone brings something different to the table and benchmarking themselves against the people around them will only result in insecurities, doubting their own ability and consequently stunting their progress. Instead, leaders should try and celebrate differing talents and skill-sets, everyone offers something unique, and their expertise is no less valuable than their co-workers.

Income

Another common insecurity which can play on the mind of many professionals‘ is whether their income accurately reflects the amount of effort they put in. A competitive spirit within the workplace can be healthy, but if it begins to get in the way of a leader’s productivity and they find themselves suspecting their competitor’s salary is more than their own, it could result in feelings of insecurity. If a co-worker’s salary is making a leader feel inadequate, they should remember to instead focus their energy on qualifying themselves for a raise.

Qualifications

Feeling ‚under qualified‘ for a position is something a lot of professionals experience, especially if the role is the first of its kind, having entered a new profession entirely. It is important for leaders to remember their ability and previous successes; after all, if they were not capable they wouldn’t have landed the job in the first place! Updating their skillset and pro-actively building qualifications through online courses or workshops can be encouraging for a leader and create a feeling of being better equipped for the position and tasks at hand.
