Leonardo da Vinci remains the single most powerfully creative and historically influential figure in human history. Leonard Shlain an associate professor of surgery at University of Californiain in his a remarkable book, Leonardo Vinci’s Brain: Understanding Da Vinci’s Creative Genius, embarks on an astounding investigation into da Vinci’s brain. A posthumous study of Leonardo Vinci’s neuroanatomy is unlocking the secrets of how his astonishing brain was able to function at such a superhuman level. Slain reveals how the “undereducated, left-handed, nearly ambidextrous, vegetarian, pacifist, gay, singularly creative Renaissance male” was able to “attain a different state of consciousness than practically all other humans.” Leonardo da Vinci together with Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino (known as Raphael) and Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (known as Michelangelo), they form the traditional trinity of great masters of the High Renaissance period.
The Medici family, also known as the House of Medici, first attained wealth and political power in Florence in the 13th century through its success in commerce and banking. Beginning in 1434 with the rise to power of Cosimo de’ Medici (or Cosimo the Elder), the family’s support of the arts and humanities made Florence into the cradle of the Renaissance, a cultural flowering rivaled only by that of ancient Greece. The Medicis produced four popes Leo X, Clement VII, Pius IV and Leo XI.

First time I met Jacek Edward Taylor he was a much younger men with head full of ideals and visions of democratic Poland.
Thirty three years later we’ve met again, this time in a democratic Poland, under much different circumstances.
Jacek Edward Taylor is a Polish lawyer and a politician, Member of the Parliament of the 1st and 2nd term. The Sejm, officially known as the Sejm of the Republic of Poland, is the lower house of the bicameral parliament of the Republic of Poland. The Sejm is the highest authority of the Third Republic of Poland since the change of government in 1989. Together with the upper chamber of parliament- the Senate; it forms the national legislative authority in Poland
In 1970s Jacek Taylor became involved with the democratic opposition. He acted as a defender in many political trials, defending, among others, Władysław Frasyniuk, Andrzej Gwiazda, Adam Michnik, Zofia and Zbigniew Romaszewski, Anna Walentynowicz, Lech Wałęsa and me, the accused of criminal offence, an act of artykul 234 paragraph 1kk of the Penal Code.
Jacek Taylor took part in the Round Table discussions. In the years 1991–1997 he was an MP from the list of the Democratic Union. The Round Table Talks were held in Warsaw from February 6 to April 5, 1989. The government initiated talks with the banned trade union Solidarność ( Solidarity) and other opposition groups to alleviate the growing social unrest. The Round Table talks were of great importance for future political events in Poland. They paved the way for a free and democratic Poland, as well as for the final abolition of communism in Poland.
In January 1987, after being released from prison, I went to Gdańsk, to the Church of St. Brygida (in 1992 the pope John Paul II gave the church the status of a minor basilica) to the chaplain of Solidarity, prelate Henryk Jankowski. The Church of St. Brygida at that time was a stronghold of Solidarnosc. Father Henryk Jankowski was instrumental in providing me the help I needed at the time a good defence attorney who could perform miracles and save me from spending the rest of my days in prison. He sent me to Gdańsk to meet lawyer Jacek Taylor. Attorney Jacek Taylor immediately took up my defense and saved my life.
Because of the potential treat to my freedom, well being even life, I decided to leave my homeland. I left Poland in 1987 for Munich, Germany, where I was granted political asylum.
After 33 years, I met with Mr. Jack Taylor to thank him once again for saving me. Seeing him brought back all the memories and emotions from all those years ago, as if it happened yesterday.
Star Wars an American epic space opera media franchise created by George Lucas.
The franchise has been expanded into various films and other media, including American epic space opera.
The franchise holds a Guinness World Records title for the “Most successful film merchandising franchise.” In 2020, the Star Wars franchise’s total value was estimated at US$70 billion, and it is currently the fifth-highest-grossing media franchise of all time.
The original film, retroactively subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope, was followed by the sequels Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983), forming the original Star Wars trilogy. A prequel trilogy was later released, consisting of Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999), Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002), and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005). In 2012, Lucas sold his production company to Disney, relinquishing his ownership of the franchise. The subsequently produced sequel trilogy consists of Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (2017), and Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). Together, the three trilogies form what has been referred to as the “Skywalker saga”. All nine films were nominated for Academy Awards (with wins going to the first two released) and were commercially successful. Together with the theatrical spin-off films Rogue One (2016) and Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018), the combined box office revenue of the films equates to over US$10 billion, and it is currently the second-highest-grossing film franchise.

Biohackers is a new German-language series coming to Netflix following the recent success of Dark.
Biohackers tells the story of a medical student named Mia, and her ruthless professor, Tanja Lorenz.
Synthetic biology can create completely new products that could be helpful in developing new drugs, bio fuels and tailor-made materials. Thanks to a genetic tool discovered in 2012 that works like scissors, even private individuals can edit genes — and the series has quite a few of those hackers. Jasper, the professor’s assistant, suffers from an incurable hereditary disease that he tries to alter. Mia’s roommate makes plants glow and adds meat flavor to vegetables. Another roommate implants various tools in his own body, including magnets in his fingers.
Tesla billionaire Elon Musk thinks tech implants are the future for mankind.
The billionaire Tesla boss has long argued that humans need to become cyborgs – half man, half robot – in preparation for an inevitable AI revolt.
In July 2019, the 49-year-old ploughed £80million into founding the company Neuralink, which aims to develop a terrifying electronic brain implant to connect us to technology.
The proposed implant is injected into the bloodstream and forms a mesh around the brain which controls smart devices, connects to the internet and even allows us to communicate telepathically. It may sound like something out of a sci-fi novel or movie, but there’s a growing band of Silicon Valley billionaires who believe they can achieve eternal life through “biohacking” – the process of making alterations to your body to keep it younger.
Peter Thiel – Thirst for young blood. The real Silicon Valley biohackers – the men who want to be immortal.
Tech implants, like this ‘Eyeborg’ camera developed by filmmaker Rob Spence, are current biohacks
Former NASA scientist Josiah Zaynor is notorious in the biohacking community after a stunt in October 2017, when he injected himself with genetically engineered DNA on a live stream.
He claimed the DNA had passed through the gene-editing device CRISPR to disable its myostatin, the hormone that inhibits muscle growth.
Cyber biohacker Rich Lee takes a more invasive approach, having had magnets that function as headphones implanted in his skull in 2013.
