Chris Patil from Ouroboros has done another great job of hosting, and writing up the connections between the various blog pieces on the biology of aging (Hourglass). Go check it out the 2nd installment of the Hourglass.
“Hourglass III will be hosted on September 9th by Alvaro at SharpBrains, and Hourglass IV on October 14th by Anne at Existence is Wonderful. We’ll set up a standalone email address and archive page for the carnival at some point — but for now, if you have submissions (or want to volunteer to host the carnival), please email me and I will forward them to the current host.”
There are pieces that cover databases of aging and longevity in a number of organisms at FightAging, personal experience of being involved in a human calorie restriction study by Elizabeth Ewen at weekly adventures of a girl on a diet, reseeding decellularized organs by Attila Csordas at Partial Immortalization - you have to go read it to figure it out, an interview by Alvaro Fernandez at SharpBrains of a leading neuroscientist who suggested the practical idea of a walking book club (which I was so impressed with that I wrote a short piece on here), and my piece on the possible link between intelligence/education and lifespan.
Thanks again Chris, look forward to the next installment of the Hourglass carnival on August 12th - contact Chris if you are interesting in contributing a piece and/or hosting.
