Turbo Twist

To successfully reach and fertilise an egg, sperm must endure a long and arduous journey through the female reproductive organs. Many fall by the wayside, but a team of scientists has recently developed a technique that could provide struggling sperm with a little roadside assistance. They developed magnetic micromotors, based on minute metal-coated helices, which can be linked to sperm and remotely guided to power them towards their destination. As seen in this video, a tiny motor attaches itself to the sperm’s tail, drives it towards the egg and finally releases it to bring about fertilisation. For couples unable to conceive because of problems with sperm motility, this method could provide a more effective solution than traditional IVF, without having to extract eggs and induce fertilisation in an artificial environment. While much more research is needed, motorised assistance has the potential to transform the future of fertility treatments.

What if we actually let up on the training of children and allow ourselves, as adults, to be retrained instead? […] [I]f, for the child, language is a playground where meaning is contingent, illusionary, motile, impermanent, and constantly shifting to keep up with the data flows that course across their inchoate consciousnesses, then maybe adults should improvise more, pick up terms, words, lexicons from children who, in many ways, live the world differently than we do, live it more closely, live it more intensely, and, sometimes, live it more critically.

sorry if this is offensive... I'm just curious, and really feel bad for the stress you're going through. why exactly is it difficult for you to get pregnant? is there anything that would help, other than what the doctors can do? sorry for the ignorance :s I really dont mean to be rude, if it is, just tell me or ignore this. sincere apologies if it does come off as rude. wishing you the best.

Nah, it’s fine.

It boils down to that my husband and I are, putting it bluntly, infertile. I have PCOS, which has affected both the frequency with which I ovulate and the quality of the eggs I release. My husband has low morphology and motility, which basically means that anything he releases is shaped weird and mostly just swims around in circles–basically, they’re a bunch of drunk mutants.

As to what else would help, that’s what we’re looking into. If this pregnancy doesn’t keep, we’ll be meeting back up with our reproductive endocrinologist to figure out what’s going on and see what else we can do to improve our chances. I get the impression that this cycle’s particular fuckups stem from the massive amounts of stress we were under a couple of months before starting this cycle, which can affect egg quality as well.

We have formed the idea that in each individual there is a coherent organization of mental processes; and we call this his ego. It is to this ego that consciousness is attached; the ego controls the approaches to motility — that is, to the discharge of excitations into the external world; it is the mental agency which supervises all its own constituent processes, and which goes to sleep at night, though even then it exercises the censorship on dreams. From this ego proceed the repressions, too, by means of which it is sought to exclude certain trends in the mind not merely from consciousness but also from other forms of effectiveness and activity.

Inhibition of bacterial motility and spreading via release of cranberry derived materials from silicone substrates

     You’ve been listening to me talk about cranberries for awhile now, and I’m sure you’re dying to know what is being done about this potential anti-biofilm agent. Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that researchers from McGill University have been working on incorporating cranberry derivatives into silicone discs! Silicone is frequently used in medial devices like catheters and often falls foul of biofilm build up. But, by having the silicone itself secrete the cranberry derivatives we’ve been talking about, there is much less chance of a biofilm developing on the medical device. This article shows the potential effectiveness of cranberry-containing medical devices.

Hey guys!

I’m trying to be a bit more relaxed(?) and personal in my posts lately and just keep you updated in my real world, day-to-day life as a patient who has Crohn’s Disease (and some extraintestinal manifestations that come with it) and a motility disorder.
