‘Stored in giant thermos bottles’: How a ‘cryonics club’ freezes people for the future..
Steeped in liquid nitrogen, 92-year-old Robert Ettinger is waiting patiently to wake up. The academic is one of 165 bodies held by the Cryonics Institute, which stores the dead ‘on ice’ in the hope they might one day live again.
Located in Michigan, the Cryonics Institute is one of the foremost names in the business of freezing people and pets that have bitten the dust. The non-profit, which charges members US$28,000 for whole body preservation, was founded by the ‘father of cryonics’ Ettinger in 1976.
Authoring ‘The Prospect of Immortality,’ which discussed the possibility of a limitless life, Ettinger himself went into a deep freeze at the institute in 2011. Like all of the Institute’s deceased members, his body is interred within a cryostat chamber at temperatures below minus 150 degrees celsius, not to be seen again until the day when, as he once wrote, “our friends of the future should be equal to the task of reviving and curing us.”
For some, cryonics is a “false science” – living off hope and wishful thinking, rather than fact and reason. Indeed, the industry has yet to achieve more than the preservation of its human test subjects. But advocates in the science community are hopeful, despite the uphill task of convincing sceptics, that there will one day be a cure for death….
Woman ’embalmed alive’ after hospital workers give her formaldehyde instead of saline
A Russian woman reportedly died after a routine procedure when hospital workers mistakenly injected her with a drug used to preserve dead bodies.
Ekaterina Fedyaeva, 28, underwent surgery last month at a hospital in Ulyanovsk, in western Russia, to have ovarian cysts removed, according to state-owned television station RT.
During the March 15 operation, however, medical personnel gave Fedyaeva what should have been saline, but turned out to be formalin, which contains formaldehyde, according to Russia’s Tass news agency. Formalin is highly toxic if ingested, and just one ounce can kill an adult.
Hospital staff realized the mistake two minutes later and tried to wash out the formalin, but it was too late – the embalming fluid was already making its way through her body.
“Mom, I’m dying,” Fedyaeva later told her mother, who thought she wasn’t being serious at the time, according to RT. Fedyaeva was rushed to Moscow’s A.I. Burnazyan Federal Medical and Biophysical Center where doctors administered multiple drugs in an attempt to counteract the formalin, according to Tass, but they were unable to save her…..
‘Israel made a mistake by striking Syria & jeopardizing relations with Russia’
Israel’s airstrike on a Syrian airbase was a strategic error that’d be hard to explain to Russia, as the aggressive act can’t be classified in any other way than aiding terrorists, political scientist Vyacheslav Matuzov told RT.
“The Israelis, I think, have made a strategic mistake because, by picking up the role of a warmongering client of the US, they put into question the whole Israeli-Russian relations,” Matuzov said. “The T-4 airfield that was bombed by the Israeli Air Force hosted a number of Russian aircraft, including Mi-8, Ka-52 helicopters. There were Russian servicemen, Russian pilots there.”
The Israeli military isn’t denying the attack, but refusing to comment on the issue, “which is the same as acknowledging it,” Matuzov, who’s also the head of the Russian-Arab Friendship and Business Cooperation Society, believes. “But the Russian military, having all the special means in their possession, clearly identified who fired the missiles.”
Early on Monday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said that two Israeli F-15 fighters had targeted Syria’s T-4 airbase in Homs province. They fired eight guided missiles, with three of them avoiding Syrian air defenses and striking the landing field. The attack was carried out from over Lebanese airspace, with Beirut later confirming the breach by Israeli jets.

California Introduces ‘Dangerous Bill’ That Would Make It Illegal for Christians to Counsel LGBTQ Adults
California LGBTQ activists have introduced a bill that would make it illegal for Christians to provide biblically based counseling for those wanting to get help for unwanted same-sex attractions.
Assemblyman Evan Low’s bill, AB 2943, states that “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is illegal under state’s consumer fraud law.
This comes six years after the state deemed it illegal for minors to receive counseling for same-sex attraction, even if they and their parents wanted help….
Robots Replace Soldiers in First Exercise of its Kind…
GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — Humans took a backseat during a base exercise on Friday, in which robots cleared obstacles for manned tanks and fighting vehicles.
U.S. and British troops participated in the Robotic Complex Breach Concept demonstration, during which several remote-controlled vehicles performed a task usually carried out by soldiers.
The rotational armor brigade was the main armor element during the exercise. It provided suppressing fire with M1A2 Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles, while remote-controlled U.K. Terrier engineering vehicles cleared a simulated minefield and bridged a tank trench….
Boston Marathon Runners Can Compete as Gender ‘They Specify Themselves to Be’
The Boston Athletic Association, the group behind the Boston Marathon, has confirmed that it allows runners to compete as the gender with which they self-identify—a controversial allowance that has raised questions about whether it gives male runners who identify as female an unfair advantage.
“We take people at their word. We register people as they specify themselves to be,” Tom Grilk, chief of the Boston Athletic Association, told the Boston Herald. “Members of the LGBT community have had a lot to deal with over the years, and we’d rather not add to that burden.”
NPR also reports that while the Association has no explicit policy about the matter, runners have been asked for several years to compete with the same gender with which they qualified.
“We don’t require that runners outline their gender identity history with us, so we can’t say for certain how many trans runners are in our race. We do know that we have had several transgender runners in the past,” the Association outlined.
However, reports state that at least five men who identify as women have signed up to run in the marathon on April 16, with three of them being introduced in a recent article by the Canadian-based Running Magazine. They are: Stevie Romer of Woodstock, Illinois, Amelia Gapin of Jersey City, New Jersey and Grace Fisher of Hancock, Maryland….
