Prophecies of 2017 Fulfilled
Rev. Lelia Cutler Channelling Dr. Alan
“This is Dr. Alan, good news first. Current population medical field has new strides, new discoveries – eliminating illnesses – cancer, diabetes, heart attacks. New advances coming, we are working with doctors and researchers. There are other means to conquer illnesses such as genes of people, herbs and knowledge gained abroad in the medical field. A year from today, in 2018, strides in medical field."

Gene therapies for cancer. Some leukemia and lymphoma patients got new hope with the first U.S. approvals of gene therapies that harness the immune system to fight cancer. These CAR T-cell therapies are extremely expensive – from $373,000 to $475,000 per patient. But when they work, they can work very well, leading to sustained remissions. The treatments are likely to be approved for additional forms of cancer in the future.
The end of hemophilia? Gene therapies for hemophilia remain in the testing phase, but results released late this year were so promising that the New England Journal of Medicine ran an editorial with the headline “A Cure for Hemophilia Within Reach.” In preliminary studies, patients with the inherited bleeding disorder were able to stop regular blood-clotting treatments for many months after a single gene-therapy infusion. Questions remain over longer-term safety and how many patients will benefit.
The promise of pig organs. The idea of using pig organs for human transplant – relieving organ shortages that lead to about 20 U.S. deaths each day – gained momentum after researchers reported good results in primates transplanted with a kidney and a heart from genetically engineered pigs. But researchers need to do more work in animals before trying pig organs in humans.
Gene editing of embryos. Scientists are not ready to make “designer babies.” But one Oregon-based team announced that it had successfully used gene editing technology to rid human embryos of a disease-causing gene. The controversial experiment was a first in the United States and it improved upon some previous attempts in China, even while raising new technical and ethical questions. No one has used altered embryos to create a pregnancy – something that remains illegal in the United States.
Uterus transplant. A woman born without a uterus gave birth to a baby boy in Dallas, thanks to a transplanted womb. It was the first such success outside of Sweden and gives renewed hope to women who lack a uterus or have lost it due to cancer or another illness. The transplant procedure can be risky and has failed in some other U.S. attempts.
Gene testing for the masses. Sales of home DNA testing kits took off, as millions of consumers sent off spit samples to companies such as Ancestry and 23andMe, mostly to learn about their heritage. But thanks to an FDA approval granted this year, 23andMe customers also could learn about risks for conditions including Parkinson’s and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Despite concerns about potential harms, including privacy breaches and emotional fallout, proponents say the tests give people information they want and give researchers valuable new DNA databases.
A new drug for ALS. For the first time in 22 years, the FDA approved a new medication for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The drug, Radicava, slows but does not stop the decline in physical functioning in people with ALS. That might mean people with the disease can walk, speak, swallow and breathe on their own a bit longer.
A new drug for MS. The FDA approved the first drug for people who have aggressive, steadily worsening multiple sclerosis. The drug, Ocrevus, also was approved for the more common relapsing form of MS, in which symptoms, such as pain, tremors, slurred speech and blurry vision, come and go over months and years. Many patients have fewer flare-ups and develop fewer new brain lesions while taking the drug.
Progress on HIV. The long, slow global fight against HIV and AIDS has reached apromising new milestone – more than half of the 36.7 million people living with HIV worldwide now receive anti-viral treatment, according to the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS. In the United States, about 85% of people with HIV know they are infected, 62% are getting treatment and 49% have the virus suppressed, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Hope for Huntington’s. In still preliminary research, scientists used spinal injections of an experimental drug to lower the levels of toxic proteins in the brains of people with Huntington’s. Right now, there is no treatment for the fatal inherited neurological condition, which causes profound physical and mental deterioration in mid-life. A drug that had any impact on the course of the disease would be a big deal.

***Mortgage Rates Up Slightly December 21, 2017
30-year fixed mortgage rates have been bouncing around in a narrow 10 basis points range since October. The U.S. average 30-year fixed mortgage rate increased 1 basis point to 3.94 percent in this week’s survey. The majority of our survey was completed prior to the surge in long-term interest rates that followed the passage of the tax bill. If those rate increases stick, we’ll likely see higher mortgage rates in next week’s survey. SEE ARTICLE

Can billions of dollars’ worth of high-tech research succeed in making death optional?
The National Academy of Medicine’s Grand Challenge in Healthy Longevity, which will award at least twenty-five million dollars for breakthroughs in the field. Victor Dzau, the academy’s president, has praised several scientists for their work with enzymes that help regulate aging; with teasing out genes that control life span in various dog breeds; and with a technique by which an old mouse is surgically connected to a young mouse, shares its blood, and within weeks becomes younger.

Cycles of environment – earth is over a million years old, many eons. It has been frozen and warm. We are in cycles. The core of the earth is warm – people population contributes to the warmth. Melting glaciers will continue but animals will survive. 100 years ago you didn’t have what you have today. Today life is simpler but disconnected. Cell phones are harmful – there are waves around the earth, across the nations there is energy. There are changes in energy.
***Earth’s changing global atmospheric energy cycle in response to climate change. The Lorenz energy cycle is widely used to investigate atmospheres and climates on planets. However, the long-term temporal variations of such an energy cycle have not yet been explored. Here we use three independent meteorological data sets from the modern satellite era, to examine the temporal characteristics of the Lorenz energy cycle of Earth’s global atmosphere in response to climate change. The total mechanical energy of the global atmosphere basically remains constant with time, but the global-average eddy energies show significant positive trends. The spatial investigations suggest that these positive trends are concentrated in the Southern Hemisphere. Significant positive trends are also found in the conversion, generation and dissipation rates of energies. The positive trends in the dissipation rates of kinetic energies suggest that the efficiency of the global atmosphere as a heat engine increased during the modern satellite era. READ ARTICLE
***Cell phones (including smartphones) give off a form of energy known as radiofrequency (RF) waves, so some concerns have been raised about the safety of cell phone use. With respect to cancer, concern focuses on whether cell phones might increase the risk of brain tumors or other tumors in the head and neck area. READ MORE

No. 1: Kilonova: A meeting of two stars
This year really had some competition but one story rose above all the rest — the merger of two neutron stars.
This year’s pick is closely related to last year’s and shows how refined our ability to detect gravitational waves is becoming. There are now three gravitational wave observatories in the world and they are currently undergoing further upgrades to make them even more sensitive. I think the next big thing in gravitational-wave astronomy will be our detection of gravitational waves from the Big Bang, the event that brought our universe into existence. That may be years away and require space-based gravitational wave assets.
No. 2: It came from outer space
In October 2017, astronomers discovered what they thought was an asteroid. But upon calculating its orbit they were stunned to learn that this was no ordinary asteroid — it originated from outside our solar system. Named Oumuamua (OH’-moo-ah-moo-ah), which in Hawaiian means “a messenger from afar arriving first,” this interstellar interloper also had another surprise in store for astronomers: it was shaped unlike any known asteroid in our solar system.
Oumuamua was long and slender and rather large. There was some speculation that this could be some sort of artifact from an alien civilization, perhaps a spaceship. Discussion about its actual composition and designation, whether it’s an asteroid, comet or alien artifact, is still ongoing. Follow-up observations were made and published papers as to the results will be forthcoming. The Green Bank Radio Telescope in West Virginia even listened to see if any signals were coming from Oumuamual; to date, none have been reported.
No. 3: The great American eclipse
Truth be told, this would probably be everyone’s top pick of the year, as an estimated 200 million-plus people saw this celestial spectacle with their own eyes. NASA geared up in a big way for the eclipse by conducting a multitude of observations by aircraft, spacecraft and ground-based assets. NASA also provided extensive public outreach about the eclipse.

***A newly discovered photograph suggests legendary aviator Amelia Earhart, who vanished 80 years ago on a round-the-world flight, survived a crash-landing in the Marshall Islands.The photo, found in a long-forgotten file in the National Archives, shows a woman who resembles Earhart and a man who appears to be her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock. The discovery is featured in a new History channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence," that airs Sunday.
Independent analysts told History the photo appears legitimate and undoctored. Shawn Henry, former executive assistant director for the FBI and an NBC News analyst, has studied the photo and feels confident it shows the famed pilot and her navigator.
