recently came across a study that was published in the Neuron
Journal. This study was conducted by researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis and it showed that skin cells can actually be converted into brain cells and made to function like native cells! This study showed that the human skin cells can be converted into brain cells by exposing them to the right transcription factors and microRNAs. The study is certainly unusual because the cells that were converted were directly converted into brain cells known as medium spiny neurons, without making them return to the stem cell stage, thereby avoiding the risk of creating other cell types altogether. Another thing that made this study unique was that the researchers were successful in transforming the skin cells into a particular type of brain cells, instead of a particular range of cells.
According to the study, the brain cells that were produced from the skin cells managed to survive for almost 6 months after being injected into the brains of a group of mice. The researchers also indicated that these cells were important in helping to control the movement and were the main type...

Thousands of women who got married early have found out that things work quite well for them. They believe that getting married early really helps them to live a fulfilled and enriched life. However, those who believe otherwise, like to base their arguments on data which suggests that women who marry later are less likely to get divorced. The same data also suggests that women who marry later are more likely to earn more when compared to women who get married early. So the question that needs answering is whether you should wait before tying the knot. OROGOLD Cosmetics
examines the evidence for and against marrying early and tries to help you understand when to get married.
The evidence in this case is certainly mixed. It might not come as a surprise to you but when you get married mostly depends on what you’re looking to get out of your life, your marriage and your career. First and foremost, there is a lot of hard core data when it comes to the age at which one should get married. According to Sociologist Brad Wilcox, those who get married younger are somewhat different than those who marry when...

How do you pick the perfect moment to ask your other half the BIG question? How do you make your romantic decisions? Do you base your decisions on your gut feeling or make use of science while approaching decisions on love? Do you have a pro-and-con list that you follow or are there other factors that you base your decisions on? OROGOLD
has discovered that advances in the field of neuroscience can go a long way in determining how the human brain makes romantic choices.
Jonah Lehrer, the author of How We Decide, states that studies of the human brain have shown that there is a lot of information that cannot be accounted for. Simply put, the rational side of your brain is not equipped to make decisions like when to get married. According to Jonah, the rational side of the human brain can only take in 7 pieces of information at a time. The moment you increase the amount of information being processed, the brain begins to work like one of those ancient computers.
Due to these limitations, it always helps to listen to the emotional part of your brain when it comes to making big decisions, because...

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
