According to a prominent Australian researcher, drugs that combat aging may be available within five years, following landmark research.
The study, published in a recent issue of the journal Science, finally proves that a single anti-aging enzyme in the body can be targeted, with the potential to prevent age-related diseases and extend lifespans.
The paper shows all of the 117 drugs tested work on the single enzyme through a common mechanism. This means that a whole new class of anti-aging drugs is now viable, which could ultimately prevent cancer, Alzheimer's disease and type 2 diabetes.
"Ultimately, these drugs would treat one disease, but unlike drugs of today, they would prevent 20 others," says the lead author of the paper, Professor David Sinclair, from UNSW Medicine, who is based at Harvard University. "In effect, they would slow aging."

Seven Tips From Ernest Hemingway on How to Write Fiction

Seven Tips From Ernest Hemingway on How to Write Fiction | Gratitude | Scoop.it

Mike Springer:  "Before he was a big game hunter, before he was a deep-sea fisherman, Ernest Hemingway was a craftsman who would rise very early in the morning and write."


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Roger Ellman's insight:

All the rage - it seems. There has been a gushing out of lists of writing tips in the last three months, Hemingway, Nonnegut, Bradbury, Dillard, Miller and more.

They are ALL worth reading if you are writing, writing anything at all!

At the least they inspire as a curiosity, at best they are helpful. Most agree on core ideas of how to get going, continue, try again and --- keep writing!

So read this one and read them all!

I began this travel of storytelling with Hemingway never wrote a treatise on the art of writing fiction. He did, however, leave behind a great many passages in letters, articles and books with opinions and advice on writing. First rule: To get started, write one true sentence.
