Thought for the day….” It is a mistake to look too far ahead. The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time” (Winston Churchill).
“The road to success is always under construction”.
Did you see the alarming story in the news about scientists who have now managed to make an artificial worm that can wriggle? Computer modelling of cells is being used to make an artificial creature that mimics a real worm. The beginnings of Frankenstein perhaps??? Add artificial intelligence to artificial creatures and something very bad can be made. Already in the USA, the FDA is approving certain genetically modified animals. Back in 2007 there was the story about the South Korean scientists who had genetically modified some cats so that they glowed in the dark. The most famous example though was ‘Dolly the Sheep’, the first mammal to have been successfully cloned. Dolly the Sheep got her name after the famous singer Dolly Parton, as apparently cells from mamary glands were used to clone the sheep!!
Smile times three for the photo today. Despite all the economic problems, run-down buildings, broken infrastructure and few facilities for children, these Albanian boys certainly look very happy. Not a care in the world ! And certainly not cloned.
