I want to see Robot Wars back on the TV
For over 20 years Robot Wars has been on the screens and in them 20 years thousands of people have turned to engineering from watching the tv show and still do robotic fighting to keep the sport alive. I really believe that the show should be brought back on to a channel that is dedicated to get the future engineers and it’s an amazing program for all the family to watch.
Trials of Rapamycin for Cowden Syndrome
People with a rare genetic condition called Cowden Syndrome have been forgotten. They have a massive cancer burden including breast, thyroid, womb, kidney and melenoma. The prevelance of this condition is estimated to be 1 in 200000. There is a drug called Rapamycin that can potentially help but nobody is willing to prescribe it or create large scale trials to see if it's promise really is effective in reducing the cancer burden. The NHS website does not even mention this condition . I would like to see this condition recognised on the NHS website and a trial started to look into this promising drug for people with cowden syndrome.
Collaborating a cure for Huntington's Disease
My name is Antonio Maltese and I am a student at James Madison University and Virginia Commonwealth University. I am 21 years old. After being hospitalized from a car accident on December 22, 2016, I was diagnosed with a predisposition to Huntington's disease through a genetic test and preliminary function tests. My doctor in Harrisonburg said before getting tested, "Even if you have it there isn't a damn thing you can do about it", but I’ve decided to fight Huntington's in my own way. I started this petition to bring awareness to Huntington's Disease, not just for me, but for people like my dad, my grandma, and so many others—those who still hope and those who have lost all hope. Since so few people (around 200,000 Americans and others worldwide) are affected by Huntington's Disease, the cure seems out of reach. Pharmaceutical companies and research organizations, however, have never met Antonio Maltese. Mark my words: I'm going to do everything in my power to bring awareness to the first-ever genetically mapped neurodegenerative disease and let everyone know, no matter how big or how small, everyone has a story. Everyone deserves a fighting chance, even the 0.0001%. Read my mission, how you can support this campaign further, how you can give back to the community, and many more details about research, which can be viewed here: https://chuffed.org/project/hope-for-huntingtons The main goal of this petition is three-fold. I wish to start a conversation about the legal and ethical barriers to gene editing/silencing and stem cell research, to explain and shed light on the wide range of applicable uses of gene editing/silencing such as CRISPR-cas9 and the Ionis clinical gene silencing trial for Huntington's Disease, and to facilitate a medium of exchange and collaboration between the organizations and political members of society tagged above. I was selected to be James Madison University's Keynote speaker for the April 12, 2018 Conference on Global Issues: "Courage, the Most Honorable of Human Virtues", which can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o4KgVezo3I&feature=youtu.be If you’re willing, I want you to be a part of it. I'm a fighter. I'm stubborn, and I'm going to fight for a cure or die trying. Huntington’s causes involuntary jerking or writhing movements, slow or abnormal eye movements, difficulty with speech or swallowing, difficulty organizing, prioritizing, or focusing on tasks, perseveration (the repetition and fixation of a response), lack of awareness, depression, insomnia, loss of bodily functions, fatigue and loss of energy, and many other debilitating symptoms. My prognosis: death by age 45 with my CAG genetic test repeat at 43. (CAG count is a measure of how many mutant Huntington's DNA strands I have.) -Mayo Clinic on Huntington's Disease: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/huntingtons-disease/basics/definition/con-20030685 Remaining silent to drug companies and scientific academia regarding their main focuses and discussions is the equivalent to consenting to our current course of treatments and not allowing for change. Use your amazing voice for something good; we're loudest together. -“Here’s the relevant bit of the budget: “(Sec. 749) Prohibits the FDA from acknowledging applications for an exemption for investigational use of a drug or biological product in research in which a human embryo is intentionally created or modified to include a heritable genetic modification.” Those against genetic engineering or in vitro treatments have the privilege of being biased, because their life is not hanging in the balance of a genetically modified cure. This disallows for heritable traits to be added or retracted, no matter how deadly or concerning, regardless of how far technology advances. There has also been lack of public support, and this greatly hinders any progress forwards, giving the government and pharmaceuticals no incentives to change direction. America has the resources and the opportunity to be a strong propellant towards this next necessary evolutionary leap. Similar to the development of the Internet, medicine should encourage doctors, organizations, and researchers worldwide to collaborate together and experiment on new technologies to improve them, as only teamwork can accomplish. Cures should not be held back by the monopoly of a patented product and prevent it’s established use globally while hindering its full potential. The CRISPR gene editing technique, which can be used to solve world hunger, drought, specialized cancer treatments, anti-mold properties, and so much more, for instance, allows scientists to pinpoint an exact sequence of DNA within a gene, excise it using the Cas9 enzyme, and paste in a new segment of DNA in place of the original. We wish for organizations and their respective researchers to look at one another as collaborators rather than competitors. This is how a movement begins. This is how the world is changed. Together. Thank you, supporters.
Keep Animals Safe and Off the Road
People driving vehicles in America kill approximately two million animals every year. We are only talking about the reported collisions, which generally means that the incident resulted in a disabled vehicle. Why have we not invented something to keep these animals off the roadways? Animal lovers are everywhere, so finding the man-power to make this change would come free. People would also donate money to make this happen. My intention is only to find a solution. It is 2017, and somehow we have collectively allowed this to keep happening.
Rename the poor moth Neopalpa donaldtrumpi
Neopalpa donaldtrumpi is a moth species of the genus Neopalpa occurring in Southern California and Northern Mexico. It was first described by Canadian scientist Vazrick Nazari in January 2017. He chose the name because the moth's head cover reminded him of the hair of Donald Trump and he hoped that the name might create some publicity for underappreciated small animals.What?!?!?It is clear what is coming now: moth bullying. "Go away you ugly thing! You with your presidential hair. No one has a buck on you. You disgusting asshole!"This is animal cruelty of the very best kind.So one suggestion is to rename this poor animal. For example "Neopalpa JodyBanks" would be a good name. She was assistant to Colt Seavers and had blond hair, too. Dear science, and if you feel the need to name something after Donald J. Trump, take a very disgusting pile of excrements.Please sign this petition. Because every big change starts with a small step.Thank you!picture: wikipediaSpecial thanks to Harry Haller
Help end the flatearth debate. Place a light on the moon that a regular telescope can see.
A lot of, so called flat earthers claim to disprove basic science. Help to end this debate by sending a flashing satellite in orbit around the moon. And do it in a way we can see it from earth with a normal teleacope. Let the light flash at regular intervals. It could flash sponsors tags. And last, make another light blink bright from the moon's surface.#moonlight824 #asapmoonlight248
Tesla’s missing papers
