Directing evolution: Laurie Garrett at TEDxDanubia 2014

31/05/2014 13:00:37

Laurie Garrett -writer and journalist- examines the consequences of health care and biotechnology. She claims Charles Darwin a true hero as he is the one recognizing the essence of existence: the evolution. In her speach she points out how wonderful evolution is in its natural way. Unfortunately Humanity would like to control it...

Laurie Garrett író és újságíró, az egészségügy és a biotechnológia nagyhatalmi vonatkozásait vizsgálja. Charles Darwint nevezi hősének, mert ő volt az első, aki meglátta az összefüggést a létezésben, magát az evolúciót. Az evolúciós fejlődés csodálatos, amíg természetes keretek között marad. Csakhogy az emberi faj, mint oly sok mindent, a fajok fejlődésének irányítását is szeretné a maga kezébe venni.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* *Subject to certain rules and regulations

Darwin, Evolution, Revolution, references to your kids are smarter than you, Revolution, Revolution, Revolution.  I think she is right and informative though, but dramatic in the Scientific for sure.

>The scientists then created a short loop of DNA, called a plasmid, containing a single pair of the foreign bases, and inserted the whole thing into E. coli cells. With the diatom protein supplying a diet of foreign nucleotides, the plasmid was copied and passed on to dividing E. coli cells for nearly a week. When the supply of foreign nucleotides ran out, the bacteria replaced the foreign bases with natural ones.

Straight lie at 3:43 a PCR machine is not a sequencer, it is used to amplify DNA not sequence it. She doesn't have any idea what she's talking about.

 @ 5:09 QUOTE "Indeed already, a graduate student at Berkeley brought back a form of plant that had been extinct since the Devonian age, and it's back, it's alive, it's replicating it's part of Earth again. Who made that choice? This kid." - This was a rather startling claim! So I checked it out. It turns out the headline "Graduate Student Brings Extinct Plants To Life" only means he did a beautifully rendered illustration of a Devonian age plant. I love you Laurie, but that was very sloppy. He did not bring an extinct plant back to life.  See link :

Unhappily the Leclercqia scolopendra was not back to real life, it was only rendered on a computer
