Pinterest is adding a new feature today that allows users to pinch a photo to zoom in and out on various Pins, matching a feature that’s available on a lot of other services, like Instagram.


Pinterest is trying to be a central hub of high-quality photos and videos centered around ideas and products, but this still more or less exemplifies that the ability to manipulate photos within the app has started to become table stakes for sites like Pinterest. It also has to refine its visual search product as more and more companies offer similar products, like Google (ironically also called Lens, the same name as Pinterest’s camera search product). As the company becomes increasingly focused on mobile and discovery centered around photos, users will start expecting the kinds of behaviors that exist on other services (like Instagram) to exist on Pinterest.


One of Pinterest’s core directives is to push people closer and closer toward a moment of inspiration where they act on some kind of idea they discover on Pinterest. That can include buying a product, downloading an app or even changing things in their closet based on something they see on Pinterest. If Pinterest is able to do that, it can go to advertisers and explain that it has a different kind of user behavior that they won’t find on Facebook or Snap — and get them to start spending a lot of money on Pinterest.


Zooming in on a photo to get a better look at something seems like a good feature for digging through cluttered photos in order to identify a product. Pinterest is giving users a way to take photos in order to search for products, but those kinds of amateur photos might not have the right products in focus. That might be especially true for rooms in homes and could hold true even for professional photos.




That might also help Pinterest fend off apps picking off certain use cases that the company has traditionally owned. Houzz, for example, is trying to become a go-to place for interior design and products you would buy for your home. That’s catapulted Houzz into a startup with a $4 billion valuation.


Pinterest is also making a small tweak to make the option to search visually on a Pin easier to find. All these kinds of tweaks may seem somewhat small. But the sum of these incremental changes may help Pinterest continue to show advertisers that it’s a company that deserves a big chunk of their ad budgets typically reserved for Google and Facebook. Pinterest recently raised capital at a $12.3 billion valuation, and if it’s going to justify that valuation it has to turn into a critical spend for marketers.

Pig organs are the same size as human organs and function pretty much the same way, but pig to human transplantation has long been an elusive goal for researchers due to fear of activating dormant viral diseases in the pig’s cells Derma 21 hard sell.

But there’s hope on the horizon, thanks to a new study out in Science today involving CRISPR’d piglets. Researchers in the study used the gene-editing technology to effectively cut out a porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV) commonly found throughout pig bodies.

The findings represent an important breakthrough in the potential for xenotransplantation, or the use of animal organs in humans. Currently there are more than 117,000 men, women and children on the donor waiting list in the U.S., 22 of whom die each day from lack of a matching donor. The ability to use a pig heart, lungs or other body parts could shore up the shortage and save numerous lives.

This is the first time researchers have been able to demonstrate they were able to inactivate PERV and open the way for xenotransplantation without cross-species contamination Derma 21 hard sell.

The company behind the study, eGenesis, which was founded by Harvard genome godfather George Church and Luhan Yang, says it used a technique involving a combination of CRISPR and a method preventing primary cell death during the editing process to inactivate all 62 copies of PERV in piglet embryos. Those embryos were then implanted in sows, growing to fully formed piglets, free of PERV.

CRISPR holds enormous potential to wipe out diseases in both humans and animals, upend our food system and has many other applications we likely don’t see yet. Just last week, U.S. scientists were able to demonstrate they could successfully CRISPR out a faulty heart gene mutation in human embryos. However, there is still a lot to take into account before applying the technology to fully formed human beings.

eGenesis says it will continue to monitor the piglets for any long-term effects and, according to Yang, will also “further engineer the PERV-free pig strain to deliver safe and effective xenotransplantation Derma 21 hard sell.”

By now, even people who live under rocks know that Beyoncé has shared the names and first images of her twins, who were born on June 13 or 14. World, meet Sir Carter and Rumi, who join their big sister Blue Ivy as our #lifegoals.  reenex


Since the name reveal was a capital-B Big Deal, internet theories abound. While we can't speak to the validity of any of these hunches, there's one in particular we really hope is true. Sir Carter's name might be slightly unconventional, but there's another pretty important Sir in Beyoncé's life, and that's her longtime makeup artist Sir John.  reenex


While he's painted the faces of everyone from Naomi Campbell to Kim Kardashian West, Sir John's arguably best known for the work he's done with Beyoncé. He was the official makeup artist for her Formation World Tour and 2017 Grammys, where we all know she debuted her baby bump in all of its golden glory. In short, they're close pals. Close enough to be the inspiration for Sir Carter's name? 


Again, this is all speculation, but we love the idea of a diva naming her child after someone from her glam squad. For the record, Sir John himself is just as excited as we are about welcoming his potential namesake and Rumi into the world reenex.

Is the night Stew a pot of radish sirloin, Sheng bowl, bow lying on the bowl heard a smell, filled with hot air threw himself on the glasses, off the glasses, with a wooden tsp scoop a little, slowly entrance, some hot, suck it suck Mouth, turned out to be surprisingly fragrant dr bk laser.


Soup and did not put any valuable seasoning and nourishing herbs, only radish, sirloin, water and salt, simple, refreshing cool, delicious is probably because of a long time some.


Boil for a long time, is a very interesting word, in the dishes, in life, the truth is like one A few years, the day flies more difficult, always run into a wall, also in the middle of the night crying Asked his father, "why I am so hard, but not harvest? Is not a bit of a job?"


Father replied: "A long time will always harvest."


Like the vast expanse of wheat in the field, although the cold and sour of the twelfth lunar month, although in the spring simmering awkward jump up, but even if the poor one second boil the summer, the wheat can not The sun is emitting golden light.


Boil soon, even worse, the wheat will not bow, beef soup will not be delicious, things will not work. Avenue to Jane, cooking seems to cook a porridge soup, but contains thousands of the world, is not it dr bk laser?


Speaking of food by the way of life, there is a person had to mention, that is, Wang Zengqi. His "talk about eating", the text understand the words, his right, the origin of ingredients, diners taste and feast of the atmosphere is right and wrong. This bitter and bitter taste of life, lingering in the tongue, the love of life is also vividly on the paper, secular fireworks and piano Yiyun match, not against.


Wang Zengqi talked about a fried spinach in Kunming is very delicious, why? Great oil, fire evenly, taste very beautiful. He and Chua Lan to eat the same view, respected Yuan Mei "with the garden single" in the "vegetarian meat do". This is talking about the use of meat to add the richness of vegetarian, simple food to dig a different style. Like Artemisia fried bacon, single fried wild marshes, will be some Sentimental, difficult to import, but in the cooking time, add a little bit of bacon taste, it is much different, more taste of the reed fresh.


Real "vegetarian dishes do" actually from Chaozhou cuisine. Chaoshan people believe that vegan food intolerant hunger, and Guaoyou tasteless, to make food delicious delicious, must be combined with meat and vegetables to achieve.


"Dream of Red Mansions" forty-one back, Jia Baoyu once said: "These broken leaves hateful, how not Jiaoren pulled?" Daoshi Lin Daiyu remembered the beauty of listening to the rain, talking about Li Shangyin that poem, "bamboo dock Clean water threshold clear, Acacia tread across the city. Qiuyin scattered frost fly late, stay left to listen to the rain sound. "Autumn night solitary, by the day pouring a rain, raindrops beat in the residual charge, Crisp ring, such as bell, like the sounds of nature, people can faint in the bustling desolate, heart calmly on the dry, wait and see things mature and open-minded.


Painting a painting, looking for a love, and cooking is no different, less than those who seem to be scattered, but in fact there are, tasty match. Vegetables a prime a dirty, fragrant enough. Painting and writing of a lonely a rich, into the Zenhua territory. Love the temper of a hurry a slow, a hero heroic a gentle water, each other arm, love and together.


This world everything, the truth, in fact, but also a bowl of human fireworks dr bk laser.

It’s about time you get rid of those bashful tendencies and own up to the fact that you have some pretty enviable qualities. Sure there are days that you wish you were somewhere or someone else, but the fact is, people wish they were you. It’s easy to discredit this thought, believing rather that with the flaws you have and the mistakes you’ve made, surely there is another more suitable candidate for others to aspire to be, but you’re wrong. As far as those flaws and mistakes go, no one is perfect. You deserve all this adoration. Here’s why:

You’re Intelligent.

Defined as the ability to learn and understand things, intelligence is unique to every person. When you truly think about it, everyone carries a great deal of knowledge about some particular topic. Whether you have the ability to solve complex chemical equations or you’re very crafty when it comes to repairing cars – your talents and knowledge lie in special areas.  Who wouldn’t want to know as much as you do concerning the one thing you’re most passionate about? You’re awesome at it and it really shows .

You Have the Voice of an Angel.

Or maybe you don’t.  But when you’re hanging out or driving around with the stereo up, it doesn’t matter how horribly out-of-tune you may be, your favorite line of a song is coming up so there’s no doubt you’re going to sing along. That song matches your mood perfectly today, and it feels great to belt out that melody. Just think of everyone that’s stuck at work or in a quiet classroom that can’t rock out the way you can. They’re wishing they were you.

You Created a Human.

Or maybe you didn’t. That’s cool too. You’re confident in the decision you made to have your little one, to wait until you’re more stable, or to be completely content with no children at all. You fully acknowledge however, that simply having the ability to procreate is amazing.  Even if for whatever reason the option is not open to you, remember that you yourself were the result of amazing circumstances. The whole process of conception and growth are mind-blowing, but you already knew that.

You’re Hilarious.

You may not be aware of just how funny you are. Do others begin to grin before you can even get a word out? Do they crack up and call you silly when you’re just being yourself? That tends to happen to funny people. Funny people have the ability to tell a simple story and unintentionally provoke laughter. It’s a gift. Own it.

You Dream Big.

Never one to miss out on letting others know your goals, you remind your family and friends that you’ll own your own business, finish writing your book or that once you’re earning the kind of money that allows you to make those large purchases, you’ll buy your mom a new car.  You may even daydream about home improvement projects that you’ll eventually get time to accomplish. Although your dreams are varied, they are achievable because you make it so. You’ll keep working at it until they become real. Not everyone has that kind of work ethic.

You Have a Supportive Family.

You understand that family dynamics differ greatly. Some people are members of a huge family that share the same last name and distinctive features. Then there’s the people who have a blended family made up of halves, steps and adopted individuals – some of whom they’re close to and others, not so much. ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Those family members that share a connection have the ability to encourage one another and make it known that even in times that they feel alone, they’re never truly alone .

All families aren’t made up of those that are related. Some families consist of a tightly knit group of individuals who trust and rely on each other for fun just as much as they rely on one another for support.

Then there’s you. You weren’t particularly close to all of your family members but you did however, start a family of your own. No one can rival the bond you have with your kids. Plenty of people long for that.

The List Goes On.

One of the most desirable traits that you carry is your ability to admit to failures, accept them and move on. If only everyone could learn to do that.  Actually, there’s a whole list of things that make you pretty awesome. You’ve got people wishing they were you because:
