The Value Of Therapeutic Cloning For Patients:
“There is some confusion surrounding use of the word “cloning.” BIO opposes cloning to create a new human being (reproductive cloning) because it is unsafe and unethical.”
World Human Cloning Policies:
“World policies on human or reproductive cloning range from complete prohibition to no policies on record. Thirty-one countries, including France, Germany, and Russia, have banned human cloning altogether.”
Could We Clone Our Organs To Be Used In A Transplant?:
“How would you like a clone of yourself stowed away somewhere in case you need a new heart or liver, like a spare tire in the trunk of a car?”
A Primer On Cloning And Its Use In Livestock Operations:
“Imagine the perfect dairy cow. For eight years she has gotten pregnant on the first try, given birth easily, and produced gallon upon gallon of the best milk.”
FDA Approves Cloned Meat For Consumption:
“It could be years before meat from cloned animals hits store shelves now that the Food and Drug Administration has given producers permission to sell it, but the milk from cloned offspring could hit the markets sooner.”
E.U. Parliament Votes To Ban Cloning Of Farm Animals:
“The European Parliament today voted to ban the cloning of all farm animals as well as the sale of cloned livestock, their offspring, and products derived from them.”
Pet-Cloning Company Makes A Landmark Sale:
“The first cloned-to-order pet sold in the United States is named Little Nicky, a 9-week-old kitten delivered to a Texas woman saddened by the loss of a cat she had owned for 17 years.”

The Eyes of Nye was a science program airing on public television in the United States in 2005 and featuring Bill Nye. The show was more sophisticated than its predecessor Bill Nye the Science Guy, as it was aimed more toward adults and teenagers than children. All episodes were rated TV-G, except for “Addiction” and “The Evolution of Sex”, both rated TV-PG. The creation of the show was motivated by the success of the television program Bill Nye the Science Guy, as well as a widespread contempt among scientists for scientific journalism in the media. The program was based in Seattle, Washington, produced by Buena Vista Television and broadcast during primetime by KCTS, the local PBS affiliate. I own no rights to this.

A clone is a collection of genetically identical organisms. It is a procedure used to create a new organism whose genetic constitution is a replica of an another existing individual. It is achieved by substituting the nucleus; that contains genes from one of the cells making up that individual’s body for the nucleus of a fertilized egg.
In 1997, led by researcher lan Wilmut embryologists at Roslin Institute, Scotland reported that they had cloned a sheep ‘dolly’ from the cell of an adult eve. A year later, scientists at university of Hawaii cloned a mouse creating three generations of cloned clones. Two research teams succeeded in growing embryonic stem cells in same year- what an impressive work in the field of genetic engineering!
And finally came yet another breakthrough in genetic engineering cloning of first human embryo. The supporters of human cloning untrammeled by ethics, consider it yet another milestone but for moralists the news was a bombshell. The Europe US, Britain, France speaking vehemently against human cloning said that the world had taken a step further to the nightmares of humans replicated in lab. US President Mr. George W. Bush condemned human cloning ans said “We should not as society grow life to destroy it. The use of embryos to clone is wrong”.
For pure scientists, by studying cloning, they hope to figure out how to transform a full-grown adult cell into an entirely new tissue. This implies that when one has a heart attack, doctors will remodel one of the patients skin cells into heart tissue and all the damaged heart cells would be replaced by normal healthy cells. This remodelling could heal kidney malfunction, burns, trauma, fractures etc. Embryonic cloning could prove to be a valuable tool for studying new transplant technologies. Hailed at scientific marvel researchers at ACT have successfully taken a cell from man’s leg and cow’s egg and prduced a human embryo. They say that this aims at treating a wide number of diseases. For them cloning is a blessing -an option for infertile parents who consider having children. They intend to create a disease free good genetic composition of animals, plants and human beings. But the dangers of human cloning rule out any of its advantages. Human beings should not be cloned to stock a medical junkyard of spare parts for experimentation. It implements use of clones in producing offsprings for their organs. An embryo at any stage of life is worth protection and research that entails destroying embryo, worthy of protection is immoral – no matter whatever the intention cloning turns human life into a thing, a commodity. It is unethical and unreligious man should not br defying the very foundations of natural creation.
Dr Rudolf Jearmsch – a professor at Massachustees institute of technology says that many cloned animals have subtle brain defects that means little in animals but could be devastating in human beings, so that would mean creating cloned embryos, implanting them and destroying those who look imperfect or disfigured monsters as they grow in womb. Cloning will destroy the age-old concept of father and mother. Human beings will be replaced for one another thus fostering a culture of dehumanization. At the loss of a human being, grief would be diverted in making a clone instead of adjusting to loss. Cloning is a crime against God, against humanity. It is a consequential realm of creating life to take life in the name of science. Cloning will teat society into pieces. What would Hitler have done with this technology if available at that time. There are always powerful leaders in every generation who will create a havoc for their selfish purpose. We should not take the work of god in our own hands and must respect human life or else cloning would take away human individuality, uniqueness and right to live his own life
We have all heard of hair cloning; but just how far along is the actual technology? How can it be used to improve the quality of life of balding persons and how safe and effective is it when used for hair transplantation techniques? In this short review, we would be attempting to shed light on the answers to these questions, and perhaps explore a bit more.
When did hair cloning come about?
It was in the year 1990 when a British scientist by the name of Dr. Jahoda took sheath cells from his own skin and transplanted them to his wife’s own skin. The result of the transplantation was quite interesting, because after the transplantation of the dermal sheath cells, hair began to grow on his wife’s arm. During genomic exploration, it was found that the hairs on this wife’s arm contained both Dr. Jahoda’s DNA and his Dr. Jahoda’s wife’s DNA.
Future application of Jahoda’s work
Dr. Jahoda’s small clinical procedure was not a full-blown hair cloning procedure. At least, his experiment showed two interesting highlights that can be of future application to hair cloning. First, Dr. Jahoda’s experiment showed that it’s possible for dermal sheath cells are somewhat immune-privileged. This means they are not rejected by other skins during the transplantation procedure. Autoimmune rejection of dermal sheath cells may have resulted in severe reactions.
The second highlight of Dr. Jahoda’s work is that the dermal sheath cells had acted as inducing agents that encouraged the growth of new hairs. This is quite useful, because surgeons would not have to harvest the whole hair follicle to be able to encourage new hair growth. Hair surgeons simply have to isolate the dermal sheathe cells and find a way to transfer them to the bald areas of the patient.
Basic issues with the isolation of dermal sheath cells
The first problem with Dr. Jahoda’s approach is the nature of the dermal sheath cells themselves. The said skin cells are very difficult to isolate and very difficult to harvest in large numbers. The culturing process is also difficult, and has to be backed up by a rigorous procedure that was not provided by Dr. Jahoda’s work.
Here’s another funny yet serious problem if the dermal sheath cells had been successfully transferred; the hairs have to grow outward instead of inward. There’s a probability that the hair cells would grow into the skin tissue rather than outward, as expected. Another important issue is the longevity of the hairs that would eventually grow on the scalp. There’s no proof yet that the new hair follicles would renew their reproducible phase; the hairs might die out after the first cycle and never return.
In contrast with normal hair follicles on your scalp that enters reproducible cycles lasting from between 2 years to 6 years, newly transplanted dermal sheath cells might show some promise then die abruptly. Cell division is also a problem; what if the new hair cells cease from reproducing themselves and become dormant, all of a sudden? The patient would be left with a large medical bill and no hair.

The DVLA recently announced a crackdown on suppliers of illegal number plates. The main instances of this are number plates being copied by an unscrupulous supplier and then sold on to groups of criminals dealing with stolen cars. The copied number plates then replace the ones on the stolen cars, and so those cars are no longer registered as stolen for any checks on the registration plates.
As well as enabling the sale of stolen cars, this can also cause ramifications for victims who have had their number plate copied. Being pulled over by the police is never pleasant, but when they begin accusing you of stealing the car you are in, this can quickly become a nightmare.
The Number Plate Crackdown
Last year, laws were introduced that made it an offence for number plate suppliers to supply plates that didn’t meet the Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001 which gave the DVLA new powers to directly prosecute suppliers that were engaged in illegal dealings. Successful prosecutions have already been made and there are others that are currently under investigation.
These laws are important as they are targeted specifically at the source of these plates, rather than attempting to find those selling the cars and imprisoning them. In the former scenario, the supply of copied plates is cut off, in the latter, new criminals can simply take the place of the old, filling a gap in the market.
To find the suppliers that need to be prosecuted in the first place, Trading Standards, the Police and the Courts have also become involved.
The Consumer Benefits
The direct benefits from this initiative will hopefully be a reduction in the number of stolen cars on the road and up for sale. By making it harder for stolen cars to be sold on, the incentive to steal cars in the first place is reduced. A reduction in car theft filters through to a reduction in insurance premiums and so everybody is happier, except presumably the criminals!
In addition to the direct benefits, a service has also been set up for motorists who believe they have had their number plate copied. By recording this information, the chances of you being pulled over because somebody has copied your number plate and put it on a stolen car are reduced. If the Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology also has access to these records, the chances of the return of a stolen vehicle increase as well.
The Ongoing Story
Despite all of this, calls are still being made for even tougher measures to be taken against those who engage in number plate cloning, Although this returns the focus to those who are actually selling the stolen cars, Detective Chief Inspector Mark Hooper, considered the police expert on car crime, has said that either introducing a third party to verify the documentation in all sales, or introducing a mandatory full mechanical inspection for all sales would be two possible options.
With measures being taken against the suppliers of the cloned plates, as well as those who then utilise those plates, there will hopefully be a sharp reduction in this practise.
Until then, one of the best ways to ensure your plate doesn’t get cloned is to go through a trusted number plate supplier.

There may perhaps come a day when cloning a plant would be the only way that you and I can obtain one of our favorite tomato or pepper plants for our garden. As survivalists this can be very important to us in order to ensure our continued existence. In that case I would like to impart his article on plant cloning.
When we say we are cloning a plant we are not talking about physically going into the nucleus of the cell and modifying the DNA or any such procedures as that. What we are talking about is scraping the tissues in this case of a plant and effectively growing it in a sterile environment. Our sterile environment in this case is a cultured media.
Plants are in fact composed of live cells and when we have transferred a minute piece into a culture media we are cultivating these cells which ultimately will continue to divide until such time as it provides us with a perfectly executed genetic copy of our original tissue sample.
This is the technique which can be used on any plant which grows on the face of the earth. When a plant is brought in from nature to our laboratory setting we must provide as much of a sterile environment as we possibly can. This sterile status should include every item that will touch the explants as they are called from the Plant itself to the media.
About ten years ago, I wrote a technical paper on sterile techniques involving a micropropagation laboratory and the principles that I brought forth at that time are just as effective now as then. The object is to isolate the pure plant tissue from its natural contaminants which normally would coexist with it in the natural outdoor situation.
Your laboratory should consist of the following items of equipment and supplies:
A Glove Box for doing the culturing in
A fresh plant
A hobby X-Acto knife
Several Sterile Agar filled Petri dishes or baby food containers
A solution of at least 91percent Alcohol contained in a small dish
A paper towel soaked in alcohol
A cigarette lighter or alcohol lamp
The procedure is as follows:
Cloning is a very easy procedure and can be accomplished in your own kitchen if necessary. A glove box is an enclosed container where you can insert you hands and not infect the items inside. All the following procedures that I am going to explain to you should be completed in the sterile confines of the Glove Box. I can not stress enough that you maintain a completely sterile environment at all times.
Turn the glove box on and place all your equipment and supplies inside. Inside you will place the dishes of prepared agar which has previously been microwave in order to kill any possible pollutants. Also put your sample plant in the glove box as well along with your alcohol soaked paper towel and the remaining supplies. After completing this phase of the process wash your hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap.
Dip your x-acto knife blade into the alcohol and proceed to flame it with your cigarette lighter or alcohol lamp after which you will place it on the alcohol towel to keep it sterile.
Slice the stem of the plant in half lengthwise in order to open up the virgin tissue inside that has never previously been exposed to the open air. With tweezers carefully select a small piece of the plant tissue from within the inside of the stem. Place this small section of tissue in the container of alcohol. Let it sit for several minutes and then transfer it to the center of the agar that you have placed in the baby jar or Petri dish.
Place the x-acto knife into the alcohol once again and flame it as before. Repeat the above process three times for a total of three samples in order to guarantee you will have at least one successful growth.
Set the dishes in a safe place where they will not be distributed and check them everyday. Your explants should remain clean and you will eventually see what appears to be cells multiplying and forming a new plant. This plant is exactly the same as the sample plant that it came from.
There are a number of other variables which come into play as you clone various plants. These variables range from the nutrients that should be placed into the agar all the way to the growth process itself. If you happen to really be interested in this process please by all means ask me for further information, as this has been one of my major interests from years back.
