This number represents half of our population.
This number represents all of the women in the world.
This number represents the catalysts who birthed you and I; the people who have allowed for the continuance of the human race.
Yet we neglect them.
But why? My reasoning is that it’s much easier (and cheaper) to force a universal standard instead of taking a specialized approach.
What follows is a recount of all of my learnings after countless hours of research on women’s health standards and clinical systems across the world, along with some thoughts on the future. …
As someone who loves the intersection between technology and biology, when the term biohacking comes up, I get super excited.
Despite the name and Oxford Dictionary’s definition,
It’s actually a really interesting science.
Biohacking describes the process of conducting science experiments without the need of high-grade lab equipment, or a lab in general.
There are so many different things that can be done with biohacking (sometimes called DIY biology), from optimizing gender-specific health discrepancies, to synthetic biology at home, to creating groundbreaking developments in bacteria using simple kits and materials off of amazon!
I was inspired to look into this cool science after learning more about a new energy storage testing method being developed by alumni from my human accelerator. If you want to learn more about their project and see their publications, click here.
Since I’m soon to be completely a moonshot challenge, I thought this would be a great start. In addition, I’m currently developing a biology-based energy generation method, so I decided to outsource my learnings.
The revolutions in energy generation and energy storage have completely changed the way our interfacing with technology works. New phones boasting a “30% longer…
Biology is all around us. It’s the tides, the moon, plants, animals, the earth, our minds, how we interact. It’s beyond just being everywhere. From a carnal perspective, it’s everything. You can’t envision the future, happiness, or any optimal or even suboptimal situation without biology being involved.
It’s beyond everywhere. In every crevice of our lives we’re subjected to the sublime and fundamental nature of biology and its constructs. …
Researchers stare into a dish filled with oozing amoeba, and look through a microscope filled with twitching paramecia. They watch as these newly born organisms swim through their petri containers. Later, they watch clusters of stem and heart cells from the xenopus laevis frog — an entirely new life form; a biological robot — work collectively to digest and move pieces of microplastic from a small aqueous solution, and self heal when they are damaged.
As exciting as all of these microorganisms are, the scientists aren’t done. They go back to their drawing boards, iterating their algorithms, and remodeling the…
Over the course of history, our interest in the fundamentals of biology, especially proteomics — the study of all the proteins in the human body — has been completely reliant on expensive testing. Despite this, we’ve been able to make considerable advances in the fields of drug development to cellular microbiology.
As our development of biological products become increasingly prolific, we’re seeing that our previous environmental and in-vivo testing mechanisms are much too expensive and impractical, and even oftentimes inaccurate.
Think about it like this: would you want your barber to treat your lice? Would you have a veterinarian give…
Today, I’m writing about my remarks on something entirely different.
What’s it like creating a masterpiece? What do you get when you cross a grief-ridden reality warper with a crazed witch from the 17th century? In this post, I’ll cover each of these questions, and add my own thoughts along the way. Just be warned, there’s spoilers to WandaVision in this post, including from the last episode that just came out today!
What follows is my understanding of WandaVision, from breaking down the complex characterizations, to the introduction of Chaos Magic, to how WandaVision will play out in the 4th…
To date, food is one of the most valued economic production lines.
Unfortunately, we’re not really that good at making food. In fact, we waste more food than we eat. Every year, we waste about 1.3 billion tons of food by loosing it, or having to throw it away.
As we begin to see an exponential increase in population as time goes on, we start asking a different question. It’s no longer “what does feeding 7+ billion people look like?”. Now, the million-dollar question is
What does feeding 11 billion people look like?
And its 11 billion people because we’re…
So what’s the problem, and what is “the most important supply chain in the world”?
Stay tuned to find out 😉.
If you’re here, its either because you want to spoil the surprise, or you’re running short on time. Either way, just click to these links on the article and skim.
If I showed you these three products, and asked you to name something that they all had in common, what would you say?
One of the most obvious things that you’d probably say is that each of…
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
So this is quite an interesting question, one that’s commonly perceived to be a “trick question” or “existential” or “unsolvable”. But, if we look at biology, we can actually find a pretty comprehensive answer:
Two chicken predecessors mated, their genes mixed, and they laid an egg, and it hatched a chicken.
Therefore, the egg is likely to have come first. And eggs are the fundamental marker of life. Nearly 340 million years ago, the first amniotic egg — the adapted form of egg laying by aquatic animals to work on land with…
