Scientists discover a revolutionary method against baldness.





A group of researchers at the University of Southern California (UCLA) in Los Angeles, USA, has developed a new method that stimulates hair growth from stem cells and could lead to the development of drugs against Alopecia associated with hormonal imbalances, stress, aging and chemotherapy.

The research published in the journal Nature Cell Biology, led by Heather Christofk and William Lowry, found that stem cells of the hair follicle - responsible for the cyclical growth of hair throughout life - have a different metabolism than other cells of the skin and can be stimulated. In this way, when your cell cycle is interrupted by different factors, baldness appears.

The follicles process glucose from the bloodstream to produce energy in the form of pyruvate, used by mitochondria for cellular activity, or turn it into another metabolite known as lactate. Based on these observations, the experts attempted to deduce the role of both metabolites in the capillary cycle and thus determine how they influence their growth.

The analysis revealed that by genetically blocking lactate production in mice, this prevented the activation of stem cells in the follicles. On the other hand, if the pyruvate entry into the mitochondria was genetically decreased, the stem cells were forced to produce more lactate, and with that, they caused the birth of new hair faster.

"Prior to this, no one knew that increased or decreased lactate would have an effect on stem cells of the hair follicle," says Lowry on the UCLA portal.

Two hopeful drugs: RCGD423 and UK5099

After the discovery, scientists were able to develop two possible drugs (RCGD423 and UK5099) that were tested in mice and succeeded in stimulating lactate production through different metabolic pathways.

Although they have not been tested in humans and are not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. (FDA), Lowry says this method is "promising" and could help millions of men and women. "I think we have barely begun to understand the critical role that metabolism plays in hair growth," concludes the expert.

LG UX 6.0+ to debut in LG V30. LG shows V30 OLED Full Vision Display screens w/floating bar.



UPGRADED UX IN LG V30 ENABLES MORE PERSONALIZATION OPTIONS FOR MAXIMUM CONVENIENCE
Multimedia Excellence, User Personalization and Intuitive Usefulness
at the Heart of LG’s New Smartphone UX

The new UX 6.0+ to make its debut in the upcoming V30 from LG Electronics (LG) is an advanced version of LG’s UX that has been optimized to work even better with the immersive 18:9 OLED FullVision display while offering more personalization options for a more intuitive user experience. Featuring the company’s first OLED FullVision display and an advanced dual lens camera, the LG V30 is a powerful multimedia tool and the new UX is designed so that users can leverage its advanced capabilities to the fullest.

Graphy, which can be accessed in the camera’s Manual Mode, gives any shutterbug professional quality photography capabilities. With Graphy, users can choose from among a portfolio of professional shots, each with a different style and mood or they can download photos taken by professionals from the Graphy website or mobile app and apply those metadata presets – such as white balance, shutter speed, aperture and ISO – to photos taken with the V30. 

Different shooting modes such as auto, grid shot, snap shot and match shot are conveniently grouped under one menu for ease of selection. GIFs can be quickly created in the Gallery menu while the Create Movie option allows for the creation of movie using photos and/or video files which can then be edited in the included Quick Video Editor.

The Second Screen in the LG V20 has evolved to become Floating Bar on the V30. The semi-transparent Floating Bar allows for quick access to frequently used functions and can be dragged completely off the FullVision display when not needed. 

When powered off, the Always-on Display is even more customizable than before. The AOD now not only shows the clock, it can also be set to display Quick Tools, Music Player or a personal photograph as well.

Security features in the LG V30 are also more advanced than in LG’s previous smartphone UX. Using Face Recognition, the V30 can be unlocked instantaneously using the front facing camera even when the phone’s display is off. And there is no need to press the power button first, unlike on other phones. 

Voice Recognition uses a combination of the user’s voice and self-generated keywords (ideally three to five syllables combined) to unlock the V30 without the need to press a button or swipe the screen. It is supported by Qualcomm Aqstic voice UI technology for always-on, always-listening capabilities that requires very little battery power.

Even the feel of the UX can be tailored to users’ preference. Haptic feedback on the LG V30 can be customized with various included vibration combinations that can be matched to the phone’s ringtone.

LG V30 will have much better camera photo resolution than the LG V20.





LG V30 TO ELEVATE SMARTPHONE CAMERA TO NEW HEIGHTS
Largest Aperture Smartphone Camera and Glass Crystal Clear Lens
Deliver Brighter, More Vivid Images Than Ever Before.

LG Electronics (LG) will incorporate an F1.6 aperture camera and glass lens in the dual camera of its upcoming V30 flagship smartphone, introducing industry-leading innovations that bring a new level of photographic innovation to the mobile industry.

Excellence in smartphone cameras has long been a core competency of LG’s mobile devices and the dual camera module in the upcoming LG V30 will include the world’s largest aperture and clearest lens ever to be featured in a smartphone. LG’s first F1.6 lens is also the largest aperture among existing smartphone cameras, delivering 25 percent more light to the sensor compared to an F1.8 lens. 

The glass Crystal Clear Lens also delivers greater light-collecting ability than a plastic lens as well as better color reproduction. This makes the V30 particularly well suited for photography and videography.

“LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and our decision to adopt glass in the V30 camera is specifically because this has traditionally been the realm of DSLRs,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “For the users for whom the V series was designed, this kind of innovation is significant.”

In all areas, the camera in the LG V30 is superior to the camera of its predecessor, let alone other smartphones. The camera in the V30 cuts edge distortion by a third compared to the V20 when capturing wide angle shots, making it ideal for group wefies, spacious interiors and expansive landscapes.

Even with all these improvements, the rear camera module of the LG V30 still manages to remain svelte, 30 percent smaller in size compared to the V20. Paired with LG’s specialized UX featuring laser detection AF, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization, shutterbugs will find the V30 as easy and convenient to use as its predecessor.

The LG V30 smartphone will be unveiled in August 31st in Berlin at IFA 2017.

iPhone 7S/7S Plus for September w/edge to edge LCD displays. iPhone 8 delayed to November, design to change.


Korean sources are saying Apple`s iPhone 7S and 7S Plus will be unveiled in September and will still have LCD panels, but the interesting thing is  that both units will have edge to edge displays, that wraps around the side.

Not saying anything about NO home button on these 7S and 7S Plus models.

Still undecided on the detailed specifications of some hardware and design features, US tech giant Apple has postponed the unveiling of the iPhone 8 fitted with an OLED screen to November.
“Apple’s top brass recently approved the September launch of two LCD models, but the OLED iPhone launch is likely to be delayed to November,” an official from a Korean supplier told The Investor on condition of anonymity.  

The OLED iPhone 8  is failing to work the fingerprint scanner on the front display.

The iPhone’s rear design has not yet been finalized. We are still awaiting Apple’s final decision before shipping parts,” he said, hinting that the phone is also likely to have a fingerprint scanner on the back. 
“Fingerprint scanning, which plays a crucial role in safeguarding payment solution Apple Pay, needs to be fault-free. Apple seems to have failed to fully develop the technology for the upcoming iPhone,” said a local display expert who wished to be unnamed.  
Samsung is making OLED displays for the iPhone 8 in small amounts at this time.
