Jericho 941

Known by many names due to different importers looking to garner market interest, the Jericho 941, also known as the Desert Eagle Pistol, UZI Eagle, and Baby Eagle, is based on the legendary CZ-75. Available in 9x19mm, .40 S&W, 45 ACP and the defunct .41 AE, it is a solid steel handgun for the most part. Later more current production models incorporate a polymer frame instead. (GRH)

New brain gene born, study shows

Scientists have taken a step forward in helping to solve one of life’s greatest mysteries - what makes us human?

An international team of researchers have discovered a new gene that helps explain how humans evolved from apes. Scientists say the gene - calledmiR-941 - appears to have played a crucial role in human brain development and may shed light on how we learned to use tools and language. Researchers say it is the first time that a new gene - carried only by humans and not by apes - has been shown to have a specific function within the human body.

Unique finding

A team at the University of Edinburgh compared the human genome to 11 other species of mammals, including chimpanzees, gorillas, mouse and rat, to find the differences between them. The results, published in Nature Communications, showed that the gene - miR-941 - is unique to humans. The researchers say that it emerged between six and one million years ago, after humans had evolved from apes. The gene is highly active in two areas of the brain that control our decision making and language abilities. The study suggests it could have a role in the advanced brain functions that make us human.

Startling results

It is known that most differences between species occur as a result of changes to existing genes, or the duplication and deletion of genes. But scientists say this gene emerged fully functional out of non-coding genetic material, previously termed “junk DNA”, in a startlingly brief interval of evolutionary time. Until now, it has been remarkably difficult to see this process in action. Researcher Dr Martin Taylor, who led the study at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at the University of Edinburgh, said the results were fascinating.

This new molecule sprang from nowhere at a time when our species was undergoing dramatic changes: living longer, walking upright, learning how to use tools and how to communicate. We’re now hopeful that we will find more new genes that help show what makes us human. -Dr Martin Taylor (Programme leader, Biomedical Systems Analysis)

Jericho 941

An Israeli handgun based on the CZ-75. This one is in the much desired matte stainless steel finish, the other option being matte black. They come chambered in 9mm, .45 ACP, .40 S&W and the obsolete .41 AE. You will occasionally find them marked as Desert Eagle Pistol, UZI Eagle or Baby Eagle’s.

Alright, so fairly recently I reached a huge goal and I decided to celebrate with a follow forever commemorating all of the lovely people who have made my dash a better place. The friendships that I have made and the people that I have met, are something that I will cherish forever. Whether we’ve laughed or cried, talked or didn’t, I love you all!

t-o-ews (I am not worthy) helped me by making the graphic, Maddie is perfect. All credit of the pictures goes to her.

The babes are bolded but I love everyone. (I really hope I didn’t forget anyone!)

This is a hockey blog first and foremost, so let’s start this off right.

It’s hard to put these blogs in one, single category, but they are so closely related (at least to me) that I can put them in one grouping. Either way, these blogs are super cool and deep. 10/10 recommend because whatever type of blog you have, we all have THAT side to us.

CZ75B

Legendary handgun originating from Czechoslovakia (now theCzech Republic). One of the most copied and imitated handgun designs in the world, with guns such as the Bren-Ten and Jericho 941 tracing their lineage to the CZ75. It’s often all steel construction makes its quite heavy but some variants and clones now employ polymer framed lowers in the very competitive conceal carry market. (GRH)
