6-PACK — PrEP Study + Republicans Favor Postponing Reality + Selena Gomez Gives Him A Woody + The Mooch Tripps Himself Up + Corey Feldman Rant On Video + Chelsea Manning Does VANITY FAIR! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-08-10 at 12.58.25 PMA new study of 361 men from Canada and France suggests that taking two doses of Truvada for PrEP from 2 to 24 hours before intercourse, another 24 hours later and a fourth dose 24 hours after that dramatically reduced the risk of HIV transmission. Just as with men on PrEP daily, the rate of protection was found to be 97%.

Some Important Facts About DNA Testing Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-07-26 at 12.03.01 AM

Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA is a molecule that is often referred to as the blueprint of human life. It consists of the genetic code that makes the cells inside our bodies and is found in every living thing. Opting for DNA testing may prove to be just the right thing to help you ascertain your true identity. All that a lab may require to do your DNA analysis is a few of your body cells, which can be obtained easily by scraping the insides of your cheeks (using a special swab). 

Uses of DNA testing

Please note, performing a single DNA test may not be all that useful. The DNA testing results actually gain significance when they’re compared against the results of other individuals. That way you can figure out if two or more people share a common ancestor or not. Thereafter, paper trails can be used to find out the exact ancestors. DNA testing can also provide solid conclusive evidence that two individuals don’t have common ancestors. You can even perform these tests using a home DNA test kit. There are lots of popular sites out there where you can take DNA tests at home, and in a matter of weeks and get the results sent to you at home, there is nothing intrusive about them either- all they require is a swab of the inside of your mouth and that is about it!

About yDNA

Every man inherits yDNA from his father. yDNA testing is done primarily on males, as they have one Y and one X chromosome. As yDNA is passed down from male parent to male 

child, just like the surnames, it can be easily visualised and tracked via genealogy. That’s why the organisation of yDNA projects is around the surnames.

As may be evident, females can’t take yDNA test, however, they can use this test for convincing a male relative to take a similar test for the surname line. Unlike their male counterparts, females have no Y chromosome and have 2 X chromosomes instead. A male researching the surname line that came through a female can have a male relative undergo the test to represent her line. His yDNA would’ve come to him from his father’s father’s line.

About mtDNA

The mtDNA test can be taken by both men and women. All women have a specific DNA material that’s useful in the field of genealogy, referred to as the mitochondria or the mtDNA. It’s the material that surrounds the chromosomes. This DNA is passed down from a mother to her kids, and essentially remains unchanged. While both men and women inherit mtDNA from their moms, it’s only the women that can pass it on. 

A mtDNA test is useful to test the mother’s line of the participant. As this line changes in every generation, you may not be able to track down more than a few generations.

About atDNA

Also known as family-finder DNA, Autosomal DNA or at DNA, it is carried by both men and women, and is inherited from both the parents. This DNA is found on the non-sex chromosome. All human beings have a pair of sex chromosomes (which are X and Y chromosomes) and 22 pairs of the autosomal chromosomes. Two related people may have some linked blocks of these 22 autosomal chromosomes, and the degree of matching can be used for ascertaining the relationship.

Hedy First — A Review Of HEDY!: THE LIFE & INVENTIONS OF HEDY LAMARR Comments (0)

I was able to catch HEDY!: The Life & Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, written and performed as a one-woman show by Heather Massie, here in NYC last night.

The show  — playing tonight at 5:15 p.m. — benefits the Intrepid Sea, 5904c5e51400002600a9c946 Air & Space Museum's GOALS for Girls Program, which is fitting since its subject is a Hollywood beauty icon who is becoming more properly known for her incredibly important frequency hopping invention.

In the show, Lamarr addresses the captive audience, narrating the story of her life in Austria, rise to fame in Hollywood, her many marriages, and — most importantly — a bit about how her WWII-time invention would go on to become the basis for so much of what we use today, including cellphones, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and many military applications.

As Hedy tells it, her invention could have ended WWII without nuclear weapons had the U.S. taken it seriously at the time. Instead, the government waited until the invention was theirs to use — with no compensation for Lamarr or her co-inventor George Antheil.

HEDY! is an informative piece, albeit one that lacks sufficient drama. Too often, it feels like a Wikipedia entry brought to life. It works best when Massie, who captures Lamarr's kooky grandeur and cerebral air, jokes with the audience, and pokes fun at herself. Was the real Lamarr so convivial? I don't know. But she was definitely ahead of her time.

Check it out here.
