Scientists Are Using Gene Editing To Create the Perfect Tomato For Your Salad

Slashdot - 8 hours 40 min ago
An anonymous reader shares an article: Geneticists are now using technology to isolate the precise genes responsible for excessive branching and flowering, characteristics which lead to less fruit and thus less yield for farmers. In a study published in the journal Cell last week, geneticist Zachary Lippman of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory explains his research team's efforts to fix mutated tomatoes using CRISPR gene editing technology. By identifying the genes associated with undesired mutations, Lippman was able to edit them and suppress their effects. After playing with the plant architecture, Lippman's team was ultimately able to engineer highly productive plants that yielded more of the desired fruit and less of the unwanted flowers and branches. Original research paper; further reading on Nature magazine.

Boxer Shows Off His Hand-Eye Coordination By Boxing A Tennis Ball On A Rubber Band Attached To His Head

GeekOlogy - 8 hours 50 min ago
This is a video of boxer Vasyl Lomochenko demonstrating his very impressive hand-eye coordination by boxing a tennis ball on an elastic band attached to his hat. It's like next-level paddle ball. Which, for the record, I suck at. I'm usually only good for a hit or two before I miss a bunch and get so frustrated I rip the ball off the rubber band and insist I just wanted a bouncy-ball anyways. Keep going for the whole video while I poke myself in the eye with my straw trying to drink a smoothie.

Imzy, the Kinder and Gentler Reddit By Ex Employee, Is Shutting Down

Slashdot - 9 hours 20 min ago
Imzy, a social media site led by ex-Reddit employee Dan McComas, announced on Wednesday that it will be closing its doors next month. The site was launched last year with much fanfare. Imzy sought to offer a community that didn't have trolls, one of the reasons that led McComas to leave Reddit two years ago. Ever since its launch, Imzy struggled to gain traction. According to web analytics firm SimilarWeb, the website was visited less than 400,000 times last month. McComas didn't elaborate why his service was shutting down, though he wrote: Some of you have been here since our launch into beta and some are brand new. We've loved getting to know all of you and seeing you build communities and make new friends. Unfortunately, we were not able to find our place in the market. We still feel that the internet deserves better and hope that we see more teams take on this challenge in the future.

Woopsie: Demolition Crew Also Destroys The Building Next To The One They're Supposed To Demolish

GeekOlogy - 9 hours 49 min ago
This is a video from Baltimore, Maryland of a city-hired demolition crew accidentally knocking over the building next to the one they're supposed to be demolishing. It looks like the chimney falling cause a chain reaction of structural fail. Now I'm not saying I saw an accident coming from a mile away, but you definitely could have seen it from the moon. QUESTION: is all it takes to be a demolition crew a heavy-duty excavator to operate and a will to destroy? Because I'll go to the bank and get a small business loan right this second. Also, I love how the excavator operator just keeps tearing away at the building after destroying the other one. It's like he knows he's gonna get fired and just really wants to wreck shit one last time. I can respect that. Keep going for the video, the woopsie daisy starts around 0:50.
