from the world's big
A method for livelihood
Maybe, one year ago, when you tell me that the game gold can be exchanged some money, I will doubt your words. But Last night, I saw that my brother had won some FFXI Gil in the net game and believe that the fact that playing game can make some money is right. Hence, I am willing to see how he finishes that progress by himself to earn the money. Besides, I understand why he spends so much time on the game so that when he graduated from school, he chose to make good use of winning some FFXI gold to live in the society. From then on, he does not need to go through the working pressure, instead of living happily and freely with the game. When understanding his behavior and seeing his happiness on the face, I am too curious that I ask him for the Final Fantasy XI gold to learn how to play the game and how to earn some money from it.Accepting his advice, I begin to play the game with the gold that my brother gave me for free. In the following, I find the game is designed very sophisticatedly and need some patience that you need pay for it. However, at the beginning of the game, because I was a new member and knew little on the game so that I lost a lot of gold. But it is lucky for me that I make a great progress very quickly and have been familiar with the game gradually under the help of the friends from the strange friends. At the same time, I have attempted to win the cheap Final Fantasy XI Gold by myself, not to buy FFXI Gil with my money. As a matter of fact, I can say that I know what my brother has done in the net game completely and believe that he will become a professional player in the world of the game. As a result, he has promised that in a few years, he will set up a net company to own his career in the near future. After listening to his words, I am very excited because he has been a good boy and has his own idea for his rest living without any help from his parents.In order to get some good other opinions from my brother, I make a decision that I would like to make use of my most time to learn from him to think over my own career.
What would it be like to experience the 4th dimension?
Physicists have understood at least theoretically, that there may be higher dimensions, besides our normal three. The first clue came in 1905 when Einstein developed his theory of special relativity. Of course, by dimensions we’re talking about length, width, and height. Generally speaking, when we talk about a fourth dimension, it’s considered space-time. But here, physicists mean a spatial dimension beyond the normal three, not a parallel universe, as such dimensions are mistaken for in popular sci-fi shows.
Duke University researchers might have solved a half-century old problem.
- Duke University researchers created a hydrogel that appears to be as strong and flexible as human cartilage.
- The blend of three polymers provides enough flexibility and durability to mimic the knee.
- The next step is to test this hydrogel in sheep; human use can take at least three years.
Duke researchers have developed the first gel-based synthetic cartilage with the strength of the real thing. A quarter-sized disc of the material can withstand the weight of a 100-pound kettlebell without tearing or losing its shape.

Their <a href="https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/adfm.202003451" target="_blank">new paper</a>, published in the journal,<em> Advanced Functional Materials</em>, details this exciting evolution of this frustrating joint.<br></p><p>Researchers have sought materials strong and versatile enough to repair a knee since at least the seventies. This new hydrogel, comprised of three polymers, might be it. When two of the polymers are stretched, a third keeps the entire structure intact. When pulled 100,000 times, the cartilage held up as well as materials used in bone implants. The team also rubbed the hydrogel against natural cartilage a million times and found it to be as wear-resistant as the real thing. </p><p>The hydrogel has the appearance of Jell-O and is comprised of 60 percent water. Co-author, Feichen Yang, <a href="https://today.duke.edu/2020/06/lab-first-cartilage-mimicking-gel-strong-enough-knees" target="_blank">says</a> this network of polymers is particularly durable: "Only this combination of all three components is both flexible and stiff and therefore strong." </p><p> As with any new material, a lot of testing must be conducted. They don't foresee this hydrogel being implanted into human bodies for at least three years. The next step is to test it out in sheep. </p><p>Still, this is an exciting step forward in the rehabilitation of one of our trickiest joints. Given the potential reward, the wait is worth it. </p><p><span></span>--</p><p><em>Stay in touch with Derek on <a href="http://www.twitter.com/derekberes" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="https://www.facebook.com/DerekBeresdotcom" target="_blank">Facebook</a> and <a href="https://derekberes.substack.com/" target="_blank">Substack</a>.

Vaccines find more success in development than any other kind of drug, but have been relatively neglected in recent decades.
Vaccines are more likely to get through clinical trials than any other type of drug — but have been given relatively little pharmaceutical industry support during the last two decades, according to a new study by MIT scholars.
