The Double Cluster Neil Fleming

A
lovely starfield

in the heroic northern constellation
Perseus
holds this famous pair of open or galactic star clusters,
h and Chi
Perseii
.

Also cataloged as
NGC
869
(right) and NGC 884,
both clusters are about 7,000 light-years away and
contain stars much younger and hotter than the Sun.

Separated by only a few hundred light-years, the clusters' ages
based on
their individual stars
are similar - evidence that they were likely a product of the same
star-forming region.

Always a rewarding
sight in binoculars,
the Double Cluster is
even visible to the unaided eye from
dark locations.

Star colors (and spikes) are enhanced in this beautiful, wide field,
telescopic image.

How to report in vitro cancer studies: maitake mushroom extract doesn't "fight cancer" [Terra Sigillata]

ResearchBlogging.orgEarlier this week, I saw one of the best treatments of a misinterpreted story that has me thinking about how all news outlets should report in vitro laboratory studies.

Only thing is that it didn't come from a news outlet.

It came a brainwashing site run by those medical socialist types - I am, of course, speaking of the UK National Health Service and their excellent patient education website, NHS Choices.

You may recall reading in the popular dead-tree or online press that investigators from New York Medical College in Valhalla published in British Journal of Urology International about maitake mushroom extract killing bladder cancer cells. The most widely cited reports came from the UK Daily Mail by Tamara Cohen entitled, "Mushroom 'shrinks cancer tumours by 75 percent,'" and "Cancer Cure: Mushrooms Can Shrink Tumors," by Jo Willey of the UK Daily Express.

Well, NHS Choices took a look at the study and detailed how the mushroom extract was only used on bladder cells in culture. Throughout their review and in the conclusion that follows, they specifically took to task the story in the Daily Express:

Potential new ‘twist’ in breast cancer detection

Working with mice, scientists at Johns Hopkins publishing in the December issue of Neoplasia have shown that a protein made by a gene called "Twist" may be the proverbial red flag that can accurately distinguish stem cells that drive aggressive, metastatic breast cancer from other breast cancer cells.
