Who Needs Film When You Can Store A Movie in Bacteria DNA? 

Who Needs Film When You Can Store A Movie in Bacteria DNA? 

Who needs film when you can store a movie in bacteria DNA?

by Deborah Netburn

You might call it the smallest movie ever made.

This week, a team of scientists report that they have successfully embedded a short film into the DNA of living bacteria cells.

The mini-movie, really a GIF, is a five-frame animation of a galloping thoroughbred mare named Annie G. The iconic images were taken by the pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge in the late 1800s for his photo series titled Human and Animal Locomotion.

….Coding five frames of a movie seemed like a perfect place to start.

The researchers began the work by breaking each frame of the film into a grid of 36 pixels by 26 pixels. Next they developed a way to code the color of each pixel using the nucleotides A, C, T and G, which are the building blocks of DNA. They also included a code that indicated where in the frame each pixel belonged. They did not encode the order of the frames, however.

…In the end, each frame consisted of 104 DNA sequences that the team inserted into a population of bacteria cells using a process called electroporation. Basically, they zapped the cells with electricity, which caused pores in their membrane to open, allowing the synthesized DNA to pass into them.

This is why Hollywood Should Blacklist Trump-Detractor Entertainers by Sarah Taylor

Excerpts:

….Despite the poor endings that entertainers often meet after threatening Trump, many of them continue to do it, and Depp is just the latest in a long line of those abusing the privilege of free speech.

In the United States, it is still a federal crime to threaten a president, sitting or otherwise:

“Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon — a former President or a member of the immediate family of a former President; a member of the immediate family of the President, the President-elect, the Vice President, or the Vice President-elect; a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056(a)(6); shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”

[end quote]

= = = = = = = = =

Do we see any liberal entertainers sitting in jail for remarks that they’ve made? No. And frankly, what makes these “celebrities” think they have a free pass at breaking the law when the common man and woman would likely be considered a terrorist or treasonist and incarcerated immediately for making similar remarks?

Seven Celebrities Who Believe It’s Not Their Job to Talk Politics

by Jerome Hudson

The 2016 presidential campaign and subsequent election of Donald Trump inspired some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to find their political voices.

From Meryl Streep’s anti-Trump speech at the Golden Globes to the numerous star-studded pro-Hillary Clinton public service announcements during the campaign, left-wing celebrities have kicked up their political advocacy considerably in the last few years.

However, not every Hollywood star wants to talk about politics, or even thinks its their obligation to do so.

Below is a list of celebrities who believe it’s not their job to discuss politics in public.

News Anchor Melissa Francis: From Failure to Success

Melissa Francis’ journey from child star to news anchor

Excerpts:

But that [Francis’ current success as a news anchor] doesn’t mean Francis hasn’t experienced her fair share of failures along the way.

She’s been spotted wearing a kitchen uniform by her Harvard classmates, been fired from two TV news jobs, fled an early job after her boss’ flirtations went too far, and, upon meeting Megyn Kelly for the first time, accidentally called her “Kelly.”

None of these missteps has held Francis back, and she’s now sharing her secret formula for success in her latest book, “Lessons From the Prairie: The Surprising Secrets to Happiness, Success, and (Sometimes Just) Survival I Learned on America’s Favorite Show” (Weinstein Books, out now).

“Getting fired was devastating, but that’s how I learned how to turn disaster into golden opportunity,” Francis, 44, tells The Post. “I have really and sincerely used it when life has knocked me on my ass.”

She identifies four steps in the survive-and-thrive process.
