Star Wars has come out and millions have witnessed this J.J. Abrams/Disney debacle. George Lucas compared Walt Disney Studios to "White Slavers" that he had sold his children to. He quickly recanted and apologized taking back all his comments on how they had failed in telling a decent story in order to strike nostalgia in the multi-million fan base. Disney calm the F&%k Down has finally made people aware of Disney's reach into our minds from every store aisle.
Clone Wars BoyaLife will operate the facility with its South Korean partner, Sooam Biotech, that runs a center that can clone dogs for customers willing to pay $100,000 (£66,000), and has already produced more than 550 puppies. Company head Hwang Woo-Suk was considered a national hero when he pioneered the world’s first cloned dog in 2005, but his research into creating human stem cells was found in 2006 to have been faked. The new facility will initially produce 100,000 cattle embryos a year, eventually increasing to one million.
Hwang Woo-suk, 56, once a scientist with rock-star like status for bringing South Korea to the forefront of stem cell studies, had also been on trial on charges of misusing state funds and violating bioethics laws. "He was guilty of fabrication," the Seoul court said in a verdict in the trial that stretched more than three years and included painstaking details about the scientific work Hwang and his team had performed at Seoul National University. The court also said that Hwang illegally diverted a portion of the money he received for research for his personal use.
"The technology exists. It's been carried out on animals," said Lee Silver, a professor at Princeton University in New Jersey, who wrote a book on cloning ethics. "The technology to clone human beings is essentially going to be the same."
Land Wars "We plan on staying," Bundy told reporters following a meeting. "I'm not afraid to go out of state. I don't need an escort."
The leader of a group of armed protesters occupying the headquarters of a federal wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon met briefly with a local sheriff and rejected the lawman's offer of safe passage out of the state to end the standoff.
In a takeover that began on January 2nd at the headquarters of the refuge is the latest incident in the so-called Sagebrush Rebellion, a decades-old conflict over federal control of land and resources in the U.S. West.
The move followed a demonstration in support of two local ranchers, Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven, who were returned to prison earlier this week for setting fires that spread to federal land. The Rainbow Family has been doing this since 1974.
