Question: Who would you like to interview and what would you ask?
Graham Hill: Well he’s dead, but I’d certainly want to interview Gandhi.I’m really interested about growth, so I might ask him about growth.
It sort of seems like our entire society is built on growth. And yet the globe is a finite thing; there’s only so many people we can put on it. There’s only so many resources.Our whole society is built on this trajectory that is infinite, but it’s not infinite. So I’m not sure if Gandhi would be able to answer that question, but . . . (Laughter).

- This finding not only improves our understanding of how the brain works but may one day be applied to treatments.
It's a development that could one day lead to much better treatments for osteoporosis, joint damage, and bone fractures.
- Scientists have isolated skeletal stem cells in adult and fetal bones for the first time.
- These cells could one day help treat damaged bone and cartilage.
- The team was able to grow skeletal stem cells from cells found within liposuctioned fat.
