This week in 1948 I was born, along with the transistor, the computer, the LP and QED
June 21, 1948, a press conference was convened at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to launch what in today's jargon would be called a ''new recording configuration.'' Columbia Records' ''Long-Playing Microgroove Record'
' - LP, for short
Nicknamed "The Baby," the new computer demonstrated the ability of the Williams Tube. For the first time in history, a computer used a stored program.
Tom Kilburn wrote that computer program, first executed on June 21, 1948. :

With the enactment of apartheid
laws in 1948, racial discrimination was institutionalised.
Well I've outlived apartheid and the CCCP, looks like I might not outlive the zionist entity...
...polysaccharide A, or PSA, which is produced by the symbiotic gut bacterium Bacteroides fragilis.
... experimental mice and induced changes to their intestinal bacteria by exposing them to a pathogenic bacterium called Helicobacter hepaticus. This microbe causes a disease in the mice that is similar to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. However, when the animals were co-colonized with B. fragilis, they were protected from the disease–as were animals that were given oral doses of just the PSA molecule
In particular, Mazmanian and his colleagues found that PSA induced particular immune-system cells called CD4+ T cells to produce interleukin-10 (IL-10), a molecule that has previously been shown to suppress inflammation–and offer protection from inflammatory bowel disease. “Thus, bacteria help reprogram our own immune system to promote health,” he says.
“The most immediate and obvious implication is that PSA may potentially be developed as a natural therapeutic for inflammatory bowel disease,” says Mazmanian.

Murchison meteorite xanthine uracil
the Murchison meteorite,...Australia in 1969. ... contains xanthine and uracil, ...nucleobases that are necessary for RNA and DNA ...carbon atoms in the two substances are in a heavy form ...the most complex molecules ever found to have originated in space.
This isnt all that new.. just the isotope ratios... Are they really the most complex???scribd
about 4000 girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 16. ...Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Study...After the researchers controlled for the parents' income and education and for the children's age, race, number of siblings, and blood lead levels, they found that girls who ate more omega-3 scored significantly better on four cognitive tests, including an IQ test.
...the dietary effect explained about 1% of the difference in test scores between girls, about the same amount as exposure to lead, says Lassek. Boys also perform a bit better on cognitive tests if they eat more omega-3s than other fatty acids, but the effect is "twice as great in girls as in boys," says Lassek. That disparity suggests that evolution has favored girls who stow omega-3 fats on their lower bodies.... omega-6 fatty acids interfere with cognition, because girls who ate more of these oils didn't perform as well.1948, Bacteroides fragilis, Phoenix Ice, Omega 3
