2020 is gone…

Musically-speaking it has been a great year @51beats. Right after the first lock-down, optimism came jointly with the release of the Hana Sent‘s hit: Summer’s Long Shadows featuring Dana Jean Phoenix. The track has been streamed thousands of times, you can download it here. The REMIXES release followed, where the song has been creatively rebuilt by Crayon Mortel, Double Precision, Jack Bags, Martino Nencioni and Tracya. Another breakthrough, with a so far >70.000 access worldwide to the official release page !

The debut-release by Andy Morello: Collateral Fluxus of imaginary thoughts followed. An imaginific work, a unique merge of dub, techno, ambient and experimental electronic music, all performed with an extensive use of modular synthesizer environments. The track “Strange as usual” has been underlined by XLR8R’s staff as “..beautifully warped glitch dub“. To celebrate, you can freely download it here.

Giacomo Vanelli‘s “Growing Wings On The Way Down” closed our journey through 2020. Sounds to evoke distant landscapes of human emotions and spiritual transformations. An attempt at the grandiose through improvisation ….. and hope …. nothing can better identify our wishes for the immediate future: HOPE.

Can spinal cord injured people hope to walk again? The meeting between medicine and nanotechnology gives new hope in this direction!

In the framework of the EU-founded project ByAxon, researchers from Spain, Italy, France and Germany are developing a new nanotechnology to couple special magnetic sensors with the spinal cord. The aim is to bypass the injured part of the spine, thus enabling neural re-connection back again.

If successful, this breakthrough technology will give new hope to half million persons that – according to the World Health Organisation – every year start suffering from spinal cord injuries. See the video here.

An important step to defeat cancer has been done by developing an efficient and non-invasive method to early-detect damaged cells.

Researchers in the U.S., Denmark and the Netherlands developed a non-invasive method to detect early-stage tumors. The research is published in Science Translational Medicine. There are 2 very promising (if not impressive) elements here: 1. the research is conducted on 200 humans, patients (being not a controversial study on cavies as usual…), and 2. the rate of success in detecting several type of different tumors at different stages, ranged from 60% to 70%!

An enormously important research that we hope will be routinely applied to all humans worldwide some day.

Would you expect your yesterday heavy-rain to have its origin in the United States? Now you can.

As reported in Physics World, extreme rainfall events occurring several days and thousands of kilometers far away can be synchronized! This is reported by researchers at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change in the UK and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany.

This is an astonishing discover that can revolutionize future weather forecast models and help to predict catastrophes.
