Scientists create artificial sperm cells

Papers hype all-female conception
Yahoo News

Scientists say they have managed for the first time to create artificial sperm cells, a development that the popular press has seized upon as a sign that sterile men -- and even women -- may be able to fertilize eggs in the future.

The researchers turned adult stem cells from bone marrow into immature sperm cells. They're excited about the discovery, but say that it could take three to five years to develop a process whereby the cells develop into the more mature sperm cells found in the testes.

"This finding is of interest but we really need to be very cautious about the interpretation," a leading biologist tells BBC News.

No one seems to have shared that word of caution with the headline writers on Fleet Street. Here's how the story's being covered by the British press:

Daily Mail: "A transplant technique has been devised that could effectively remove men from the process of creating life."

Daily Telegraph: "Women could one day grow their own sperm, says a scientist who today claims to have turned bone marrow into early-stage sperm cells."

The Independent: "Women might soon be able to produce sperm in a development that could allow lesbian couples to have their own biological daughters, according to a pioneering study published today."

On Your Feet: High Heels' Effects on the Body

Submitted by Tovleeyah

Experts warn against what one group of foot doctors calls "cruel shoes" -- such as the high heels that Semmelhack says have historically been "one of the primary ways to express what [people] don't have to do," such as walk long distances and do strenuous work.

Shoes with "pointed toes, shoes with thin soles, and shoes with high spike heels" are of the cruel variety, according to the Web site of the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, because they can "cause crowding of the toes and increased pressure," which can result in hammertoes and bunions. The American Society of Podiatric Sports Medicine reports that a three-inch heel creates seven times more stress than a one-inch heel.

Bonding with the New Covenant

Promoting a wave of Yah consciousness
By Yehuda H. Cohane -
KNN Resident Priest

In a world filled with deception, much misdirection and confusion, it is difficult for the human family to know where to turn for guidance; they have had no choice but to choose, that which has been given to them. They have been desensitized to the evil that fuels this contemporary civilization. We as the children of the Most Holy must be more inspired than ever to hasten an alternative into the consciousness of those who are seeking life and truth.

The Kingdom of Yah at Jerusalem possesses a people who have distinguished themselves in the eyes of the God of Israel. For forty years we have been on this course that has lead us now to a time in prophetic history wherein the record of our Fathers, the reputation that they obtained with him has been washed away/ cleaned up / repaired.

It is essential that you now know who you are in this prophetic development, and what you must do to continue to strengthen this unique relationship, this unique agreement known prophetically as the “New Covenant”.

We have got to understand the Covenant that has been made with us, our generation. We are bonded with a new Covenant now…and [I] will be their God, and they shall be my people.

“The Teaching Priests have certainly convinced us that there are Teaching Priests again! They have not had the opportunities to articulate during the course of the year in the fullness of classes so now every home during the course of the year they will visit the homes to teach and to restore honor, glory and the beauty of Yah (Yah’s Laws). Every individual from the smallest to the greatest in that intimate setting can understand this great inheritance and the great honor it is to be a part of this High, Holy and Sacred culture that we have.”
Ben Ammi. Memorial Passover Close-out message 2007

We are inviting you to strengthen your understanding by acquiring classes and study materials from the Prophetic Priesthood during this season.
