15 Year Old Slays Dragon Force’s Through the Fire and Flames

Someone get Tina S. an agent, because she’s crushing it. If this video evidences what happens when talent and dedication are guided by experience, then clearly teacher Renaud Louis-Servais is earning his bread. For everyone else lacking the skills, desire, or time, there’s always the power of imagination. Then again, who knows how much better she could become with a “certain” teacher?

Fictional Character Propoganda!

IT’S TIME FOR THE DRAWING BOARD. GET. PUMPED. Let’s start this off with last week’s design that will stay on site forever! The winner is….Knight Of The Underworld! The below design was created by Ioannis Hadjikyriakou. Congrats and thanks for an awesome design! And now, for your featured presentation. This week’s theme is Fictional Character Propaganda, and honestly, it’s super badass. I’m too in love with some of these designs. Let’s dive right in! Human Strife, by Jordan Heaver  Right off the bat with some Naruto! I like all the colors in this piece, the purple especially stands out to

Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Stem Cell Contacts Can Restore Sight!

Today in “whoa,” researchers at the University of Sheffield have unveiled contacts loaded with stem cells that they believe can repair and even restore sight to those with damaged eyes.

It’s a biodegradable implant that’s placed over the cornea. Loaded with stem cells, they then multiple and spread throughout the eye, repairing it with fresh new cells.

It’s designed to treat damage to the cornea, keeping pockets of stem cells to house and protect them, keeping them grouped together so that they can take on damaged portions of the eye at full strength and help to kickstart the eye into healing itself naturally.

When commenting about the discs, Dr. Frederick Claeyssens of the University of Sheffield noted the benefits, that they “believe that the overall treatment using these discs will not only be better than current treatments, it will be cheaper as well.”

This is just one of many stem cell stories that we’ve found — and I’ve compiled a nice little list and breakdown of medical breakthroughs that I find quite fascinating.

  • Scientists Make Stem Cells From Blood –  Yup, they just take a vial of your blood and then make some stem cells out of them. Stem cells made from blood are better because it’s coming from a substance already inside your body, thus making the cells less likely to be rejected by the body.
  • Paralyzed Dogs Walk Again — Through the use of stem cells, dogs with spinal damage now have a treatment to regain their ability to walk.
  • Woman Grows New Ear On Arm — Not a stem cell story, but c’mon. A woman grew a new ear. On her arm. It got reattached and now she’s totally fine.
  • Nobel Prize Winners — See that blood stem cell breakthrough? That was through the work of our Nobel Prize winners, who discovered the technique wherein specialized cells of the body can be reprogrammed into stem cells.

Question: What medical breakthrough has you totally excited? We’re living in the future, right?
