Week in Review

  • Blood might be the secret to remaining young in both mind and body. A series of studies backed by the San Francisco-based company Ambrosia found that adults 35 and older injected with blood from 16-25-year-old donors showed improvements in biomarkers for age-related diseases. Ambrosia currently sells teenage blood plasma to older patients at a rate of $8,000 for 2.5 liters (Sept. 8).
  • Derek Loccident, a football player for the University of Central Oklahoma, lost his foot on Sunday after a train ran over it. Loccident had attempted to crawl under a stopped train when it began moving and severed his foot (Sept. 9).
  • A road sign along I-71 in Columbus currently directs drivers south toward “Cinicinnati.” It’s unclear how long the typo has existed, if there are any plans to fix it or if there is a new town in the works (Sept. 10).
  • King’s Walk Golf Course, located in Grand Forks, N.D., plans to introduce a new drone food delivery service on Friday. Customers will place their orders through an app, and the drones will lower their snacks to them on a rope (Sept. 11).
