Gene determines acceptance, rejection of stem cells from others of the same marine species

(Phys.org) —To live together harmoniously in our bodies, cells need to be able to distinguish which of those among them are sanctioned residents and which are interlopers. This way, native cells can be left alone to do their jobs, and foreign cells can be attacked and removed. …read more

Crop Circle Found In Field At Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire, England July 15, 2013, UFO Sighting News.

By ScottCWaring

Date of discovery: July 15, 2013
Location of discovery: Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire, England

Crop formation didn’t start in the 1940s-1950s like many skeptics say. Precious few references have been found in early historical records that point to possible crop circles. Probably the most renowned is the “Mowing Devil” case of 1678, in which a farmer’s field was said to have been visited by a devilish entity that trampled the crops down in a circle. The event was captured for posterity on a wood engraving, but today’s modern cerealogical sceptics dismiss its relevance. Professor Robert Plot published a book entitled “A Natural History of Staffordshire” in 1686, in which he made passing reference to rings, circles and other shapes found in grassy fields. Much debate has ensued over Plot’s observations; detailed as his notes were, some researchers still consider his evidence flimsy at best. They feel it more likely that Plot was describing “fairy rings” caused by common fungi. For many more, the jury is still out. Despite having been on both sides of the fence in the past, it is nonetheless my belief that any evidence for early crop circles – however vague – must be considered if we are to remain true to the open spirit of cerealogical research.

Video: Griswold Family travels to Disney in the Family Truckster, for real

Wagon Queen Family Truckster

Filed under:

Is there anyone among us who didn’t laugh uncontrollably at the Family Truckster that transported Clark, Ellen, Rusty and Audrey (along with a few other, less fortunate souls…) to Wally World in National Lampoon’s Vacation? We thought not. Such a classic piece of Hollywood automobilia deserves such recognition, we think, and we’re happy to report that one real-life Griswold Family has replicated the movie’s fateful trip the best way it can: with a Wagon Queen Family Truckster of their very own.

Wally World exists only in the imagination of the movies, and that’s fine because Disney World not only exists but is a perfect fill-in for the Griswold Family Vacation. The family may not be greeted by the late, great John Candy, and they probably aren’t going to see Christie Brinkley in a bright red Ferrari, but they will for sure see Mickey Mouse, and hopefully even Tinker Bell, if they’re lucky.

Check out the video below to see the real-life Griswold Family and their faithful recreation of the infamous Family Truckster, and feel free to head on over to the official Disney blog for more on the family and their vacationing travails. Finally, check out another fan-made Family Truckster here.
