When you think about starting a family with a third-party help, you start wondering how hard it is to find a donor. Well, let’s discuss it and find the answer to the question that worries so many people.

How to find a donor?

First of all, you need to realize that the best option is to turn to an agency that has a database of potential egg donors. You can find one here  and make a different choice based on your preferences. In addition, you can get a free consultation and ask the questions you want as well as get a general idea of the process. After you sign up, you’ll be able to choose a donor. The database of egg donors is very detailed and you can explore the profiles which state the race, appearance, health, etc.

How hard it is to choose one?

Well, the list of potential donors is often quite long, so there are many options to explore. If you feel overwhelmed by the number of candidates, you can make up a list of what you expect from a donor (the age, appearance, race, etc.) and how would you like your baby to look. The characteristics are sure to narrow down the list to a few candidates. You can contact them and see if you feel the connection. Some people find it really important. In case you are very picky and the problem is that you don’t like any of the candidates, you should think if you really want to start the family. If the answer is yes, then you should simply be patient and the right donor will find himself.

You fold your transparent mobile phone so that it fits into your wallet and charge it on the way to office using your helmet. While in a meeting with your boss, you switch on your washing machine with your phone. Your fancy jacket runs your laptop as you make an award-winning presentation. If this sounds like a sci-fi movie script, you may soon be a part of it.

Flexible, single-layer mobile phones, solar jackets and helmets for energy generation and storage on-the-go and smart power out.

The transparent and foldable mobile phones are made of graphene, the new super material in the tech industry that’s extremely thin, strong and flexible.

The bulky solar panels of today could soon be replaced by aesthetic ‘solar trees’ near your offices and homes with ‘leaves’ made of small panels to generate electricity.

Fluid and flexible solar panels that can be moulded into any shape can make current solar panels a thing of the past as India targets generation of 100 GW.

Neuroscientists at Emory University School of Medicine have discovered a focal pathway in the brain that when electrically stimulated causes immediate laughter, followed by a sense of calm and happiness, even during awake brain surgery. The effects of stimulation were observed in an epilepsy patient undergoing diagnostic monitoring for seizure diagnosis. These effects were then harnessed to help her complete a separate awake brain surgery two days later.

The behavioral effects of direct electrical stimulation of the cingulum bundle, a white matter tract in the brain, were confirmed in two other epilepsy patients undergoing diagnostic monitoring. The findings are scheduled for publication in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Videos of the effects of cingulum bundle stimulation are available, with the patient’s identity obscured.

Cataclysmic collisions between space rocks have helped explain some of the solar system’s biggest mysteries, from how the moon formed to how Uranus got its lopsided rotation. But convincing evidence for such events happening outside of the solar system is scant.

Now scientists think that they have found the first known example of a near head-on collision between two massive worlds in another planetary system, roughly 2,000 light-years away from Earth.

The chance discovery came while researchers were observing Kepler 107, a sunlike star with four orbiting planets first described in 2014, to determine each planet’s mass. Surprisingly, the star’s two innermost planets, each roughly 1.5 times the size of Earth, have dramatically different masses, the team reports February 4 in Nature Astronomy. Analysis of each planet’s mass and size revealed that Kepler 107c is roughly twice as dense as Kepler 107b. That finding suggests that Kepler 107c has a large iron-rich core, similar to the solar system’s innermost planet, Mercury, the scientists say.
