The researchers used a special cochlear implant to deliver electrical impulses to the surrounding cells to deliver localized gene therapy. The treatment helped cells produce a protein called neurotrophin which causes auditory nerve endings to regenerate. The procedure could pave the way to help people regain their hearing and potentially make the need for hearing aids…

    The complexity of global interdependencies arising from the proliferation of the Internet over the past thirty years has drastically reduced its utility as a strategic information asset to a single nation.

It should be of no surprise that a responsible democracy, carrying the torch of liberty on the world stage, would finally elect to divest its interest in governance of the Internet to the greater global community in good faith.
