1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

One of the World's Largest: $2.3 Billion EV Battery Plant for Lordstown, Ohio
GM and South Korea's LG Chem Joint Venture
GM and South Korea's LG Chem are investing $2.3 billion to build an electric vehicle battery cell plant in the Lordstown area of Ohio, USA. The plant will be one of the world's largest EV battery cell producing plants. GM and LG Chem will break ground for the new facility in mid-2020 and the new plant will create 1100 jobs at the start of operations. The companies say this plant will be flexible enough to respond to rapid changes in EV battery technology needs. Those needs are accelerating with demand for greater range on less charge times, advancing with electric car technology and they are very expensive. GM CEO Mary Barra's Electric Vehicle Commitment

Continuous Supply of New Neurons Tied to Lifetime Learning & Memory Important Discovery by University of Pennsylvania Medical School Scientists
This is breakthrough research from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The scientists have shown for the first time that brain neurons grow and develop over a lifetime from a single population of stem cells in the hippocampus region of the brain. That region is the brain's center of memory and learning. It's also a key area of reaction to stress and mood adjustments.
Why is This Important to You
The discovery underscores how a continuous supply of new neurons throughout life is the source of youthful like learning and memory throughout your life. The discovery was found in research on mice. And, it sets a new benchmark. It helps neuroscientists to determine how to enable youthful life brain conditions for memory and learning for all of us throughout our lives. It's also a path of discovery to repair and regen…
