Dara Keo was just 12 when her mother sold her virginity for $500 to a wealthy, powerful Cambodian man. The virgin trade in Cambodia thrives due to a cultural myth that sex with a virgin can help men stay young and prevent illness — and also because no one has ever been convicted of purchasing virgins in Cambodia’s courts. Rattana Chey, 21, learned that her mother was planning to sell her virginity six years ago, and sought help from Riverkids, an organization that provides refuge, schooling and vocational training for children. The organization bribed Rattana’s family with rice in exchange for not selling her. She also learned sewing, making her the family breadwinner, and also allowing her to save her two younger sisters. “My mother wants to try to sell their virginity, but I will never let that happen,” Rattana says. “Thanks to my earning ability, I am the most powerful person in our family now. I am determined to break the pattern.”Learn more via Marie Claire.

"Have you talked to the [Almost Human] writers about what’s behind the wall?"
"Yes… but I can’t tell you… I’d love to, I really would… but the truth is, I just don’t know. No, I do, but I can’t tell you. I have an idea. It could be many things… But it’s like… what’s the island? What’s behind the wall? Ooops, she’s pissed. ‘That’s it, I’m outta here.’ God bless you, thank you for your question.” (x)

A Ghost Heart, ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart — one that won’t be rejected — can be grown.
"Take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.
Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor - a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it - and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.
Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this — first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts — for years. …
'The nice thing about this technology,' Taylor says, 'is that it will work with any organ or tissue. So it's not just about hearts.'”
Ghost heart [spectacularuniverse]

The future is nigh.
