In unusual but true stories this week, we have 3D printing enabling a breakthrough in lab-grown human hair, a street art trail inspired by the Harry Po
tter map, a close-knit community, a Turkish beekeeper growing a “bee beard” for Guinness World Records, and the world’s most energy-efficient vehicle.s上海419论坛

3D printing to grow hair: A potential cure for baldness上海419论坛
上海419论坛上海品茶Researchers from the Columbia University Irving Medical Center
are making headway in their work to treat human baldness thanks to 3D printing.
The team, led by Angela Christiano, has found a way to grow human hair in a dish using stem cells and 3D printed plastic molds上海419论坛
that mimic the natural microenvironment of hair follicles.For the first time, scientists have successfully gen
erated human hair follicles in a dish without the need for skin implantation. This achievement is owed in part to 3D pr
i上海419论坛上海品茶nting technologies, which enabled the research team to closely recreate the 3D environment in which human hair cells live.
The Marauder’s map in the Harry Potter books has been the i
nspiration for a town’s art trail, according to the BBC. Dunstable’s Invisible Street Art Trail has blac
k and white maps showing more than 20 artworks on pavements that are only revealed in the rain.

Joanne Bowes, one of the people behind the trail, said she hopes it will get people interested in the town’s history.

herdsmen what kind of plants grow in what area, and she continued collecting data and ad
ding to it. In 2015, Xin and her team published a book summarizing guidelines and methods to cultivate pastures in China.上海419论坛
Two years ago, Xin’s team launched an app aimed at helping herdsmen around China to manag
上海419论坛e their pastures and predict their harvest. Using the remote sensing techniques to observe the eco
systems of the grasslands and combining the data collected by her team of researchers, the app models growth patterns of the grass.
“We used to monitor and manage the situation using remote sensing (aerial scanning). Now with these formulas, we can predi上海419论坛
ct the future and even make future plans based on them, which can raise the income of herdsmen in China,” says Xin.
上海419论坛”That’s what Li Bo planned 20 years ago, and now I’m fulfilling his vision,” Xin says.
Xin is now looking for her successor to take up her work at the station in Hulunbuir, as she thinks it should not rely on her to keep running.
“No matter who is the head of the organization, it should continue to operate efficiently. That’s my hope for the station,” says Xin.
Xin’s team in Beijing now has around 50 researchers, including gradua上海419论坛品茶微信
te students, and there are also more than 20 staff members at the Hulunbuir station.
上海419论坛品茶微信Xu Lijun, 40, joined the station in 2009 and took over its management in February.
“Now I understand how difficult this role is, because besides doing research, I have to take上海419论坛品茶微信
care of the team members, visiting researchers, and also stay in contact with the government,” says Xu.

The much-anticipated two-day European Union summit ended on Friday with no progress
toward filling the institutions’ top jobs and no consensus on ambitious net-zero greenhouse gas emission target by 2050.
A crisis summit has been scheduled for June 30 in order to fill the posts before the new European Parl
iament meets in Strasbourg, France, on July 2. Meanwhile, most EU leaders attending the
G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, for from June 28 to 29 are expected to hold informal talks on their own issues.
Shada Islam, director of Europe and Geopolitics at Brussels-based Friends of Europe, said she hop
es for a quick decision on the EU leadership. “If they keep postponing and are not so decisive, I thin
k we are sending a wrong message to Europeans and to the rest of the world,” she said on Friday.
