Newswise WASHINGTON, D.C., October 30, 2014 Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a way to use sound to create cellular scaffolding for tissue engineering, a unique approach that could help overcome one of regenerative medicines significant obstacles. The researchers will present their technique at the 168th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), held October 27-31, 2014, at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown Hotel.

The development of the new technique started with somewhat of a serendipitous discovery. The University of Washington team had been studying boiling histotripsy – a technique that uses millisecond-long bursts of high-intensity ultrasound waves to break apart tissue – as a method to eliminate cancerous tumors by liquefying them with ultrasound waves. After the sound waves destroy the tumors, the body should eliminate them as cellular waste. When the researchers examined these decellularized tissues, however, they were surprised by what the boiling left intact.

In some of our experiments, we discovered that some of the stromal tissue and vasculature was being left behind, said Yak-Nam Wang, a senior engineer at the University of Washingtons Applied Physics Laboratory. So we had the idea about using this to decellularize tissues for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

The structure that remains after decellularizing tissues is known as the extracellular matrix, a fibrous network that provides a scaffold for cells to grow upon. Most other methods for decellularizing tissues and organs involve chemical and enzymatic treatments that can cause damage to the tissues and fibers and takes multiple days. Histrostipsy, on the other hand, offers the possibility of fast decellularization of tissue with minimal damage to the matrix.

In tissue engineering, one of the holy grails is to develop biomimetic structures so that you can replace tissues with native tissue, Wang said. Stripping away cells from already developed tissue could provide a good candidate for these structures, since the extracellular matrix already acts as the cellular framework for tissue systems, Wang said.

Due to its bare composition, the matrix also induces only a relatively weak immune response from the host. The matrix could then theoretically be fed with stem cells or cells from the same person to effectively re-grow an organ.

The other thought is that maybe you could just implant the extracellular matrix and then the body itself would self-seed the tissues, if its just a small patch of tissue that youre replacing, Wang said. You wont have any immune issues, and because you have this biomimetic scaffold thats closer to the native tissue, healing would be better, and the body would recognize it as normal tissue.

Wang is currently investigating decellularization of kidney and liver tissue from large animals. Future work involves increasing the size of the decellularized tissues and assessing their in-vivo regenerative efficacy.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (UPI) — Recently, while observing changes in Jupiter’s most famous atmospheric cyclone, the swirling Great Red Spot, Hubble found itself caught in the eye of the storm, so to speak.

As the telescope honed in on Jupiter’s red spot, one of the planet’s 69 moons, Ganymede, passed between Jupiter and the sun, casting a perfectly round shadow.

For a brief moment, the moon’s shadow intersected the Great Red Spot — adding a pupil to Jupiter’s iconic storm. The Hubble Space Telescope found itself in a staring contest.

“For a moment, Jupiter ‘stared’ back at Hubble like a one-eyed giant Cyclops,” officials at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center wrote in a caption for the newly captured image.

This week in Bitcoin is still overshadowed by last weeks Bitcoin sidechains AMA by the authors of a vastly popular whitepaper on this technology that might fundamentally change how the Bitcoin protocol can be used.

Scams can be fairly prevalent in the wild, wild west of BTCeven as it slowly gains mainstream adoption (or perhaps because of that approach to the mainstream) so its important to know how to tell who is good and who is bad so we take a look at

The G+ Bitcoin Community surpassed 100,000 members andSiliconAngle briefly interviewed Avatar X, the community host, as to its future.

The Bitcoin market has been seeing a continued downward trend since the lastBitcoin Weeklyfalling to around $340 from almost $385. Last week around Oct 22 the market value of BTC had reached $385, but then quickly dropped to a band around $355; however today, the value fell even further to around $340.

This and more in this Bitcoin Weekly.

Bitcoin sidechains: What they are and what they arent, with Blockstream

Last week, two Bitcoin core devs and other extremely smart people made a splash in the Bitcoin community with the release of a white paper on Bitcoin sidechains: a concept that allows the construction of blockchains that provide external functionality to Bitcoin but remain entangled with Bitcoin itself.

The whitepaper announcement came along with the revelation of Blockstream, a business co-founded by several of the authors of the whitepaper dedicated to innovating around the idea of sidechains.

The sidechain whitepaper and Blockstream both have a very strong lineup of people involved including Bitcoin core developers Gregory Maxwell and Pieter Wuille. While the authors of the whitepaper and Blockstreams founders are not entirely the same people, there is some overlap.

The whitepaper announcement opened with a Reddit AMA and this led to a sweep of the news media and community with articles from SiliconAngle, CryptoCoinsNews, TechCrunch, and CoinDesk. As well as blogs working to demystify the entire meaning of and concepts behind sidechains such as this excellent article by Gendal.

BERLIN:More than 80 countries signed an agreement in Berlin on Wednesday (Oct 29) that could end banking secrecy in the global battle against tax evasion and fraud, even though critics pointed to shortcomings in the deal. Among the signatories were EU countries but also previously staunch proponents of banking secrecy such as Liechtenstein and tax havens like the Cayman or Virgin Islands.

The deal – known as the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement – crowned two days of talks by the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. The meeting was hosted by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble.

Fifty-one countries signed one agreement to put in place an automatic exchange of information between the participating countries beginning in September 2017. The agreement designates the national authority in each country which will be responsible for collating the data and transferring it to the other countries. The aim is for every country to be kept fully informed about the offshore holdings of its citizens.

Around 30 other countries – including Austria and Switzerland, the Bahamas and the United Arab Emirates – pledged to join the agreement from 2018. “Banking secrecy, in its old form, is obsolete,” Schaeuble told the mass-circulation daily Bild in an interview. The danger of being caught is now “very high”, Schaeuble said.

The forum was set up under the auspices of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris, which estimates that “offshore tax evasion is a serious problem for jurisdictions all over the world”. Economist Gabriel Zucman, a specialist in fiscal fraud, has calculated that about 5.8 trillion (US$7.4 trillion) is stashed away in tax havens, depriving authorities all over the world of around 130 billion in revenue each year.


The international movement to end banking secrecy has gained new momentum recently with the enactment in the United States of its 2010 Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act or FATCA. FATCA obliges foreign banks to report to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on the offshore holdings of US clients in excess of 50,000.

The move prompted five European countries – Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain – to call for a generalised automatic exchange of information in 2011. Following months of talks, amid fierce resistance in countries such as Luxembourg and Austria where banks continue to uphold banking secrecy, the EU finally came up with an accord two weeks ago.

“The more countries sign up, the more difficult it will be for others to attract investment,” said the OECD’s director for tax policy and administration, Pascal Saint-Amans. However, a number of financial centres remained a “source of concern”, he said. Panama, for example, still had not set a concrete date for its exchange of information.

Saint-Amans said the OECD will compile a list of countries that do not automatically exchange information, a measure which could act as a disincentive for investment funds and international organisations looking to invest in those countries. But experts in fiscal fraud, such as Andres Knobel of Tax Justice Network, believe such a “blacklist” would prove a rather feeble deterrent.
