Using skin cells from a young horse, the researchers successfully turned them into stem cells using a technique that was originally developed for human cells. The re-programmed cells are pluripotent, which means they can be induced to become any type of cell in the body.

Professional players of the card game are also fans of equestrian in the city
Many poker players have chosen to visit Los Angeles every year not only because of the city’s metropolitan charm but also due to the city’s strong connection with horses. We’re not referring to the high stakes poker variant of HORSE (or Texas Hold’em, Omaha hi-lo split eight or better, Razz, Seven card stud, and Seven card stud hi-lo split-Eight or better), but the four-legged animal that belongs to the Equus family. Besides Kansas, LA is arguably the other equine centre of the United States, thanks to the equestrian facilities and enthusiasts from the city.
LA’s fascination with the English sport of equestrian began when the city hosted the 1932 Summer Olympic Games. With eventing, show jumping, dressage and cross-country competitions held during the 15-day affair, Los Angelenos were exposed to the fun and excitement of equestrian (which was repeated again when it organized the 1984 Olympics). Today, the city boasts of world-class equestrian facilities, including the 75-acre Los Angeles Equestrian Center (LAEC). It is home to the Equidome, a 3,500-seater indoor stadium that has hosted some of LA’s top notch equestrian events like the Tournament of Roses Equestfest, Hollywood Horse Show, and the Los Angeles International Jumping Festival.
Poker, on the other hand, took root in LA thanks to its high-profile residents who are also fans of the card game, and the international tournaments that are held here. Among its big-time competitions are the World Poker Tour (WPT) LA Poker Classic, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) LA Circuit, the Los Angeles Poker Open, and the National Championship of Poker. Poker runs are also regularly held on its thoroughfares, taking different modes of transportation around the city like bicycles, motorcycles and, not surprisingly, horses.
With the popularity of equestrian in LA, it’s no wonder why the participants of its numerous poker competitions are flocking to the bleachers of LA’s equestrian arenas.
American poker pros John Bonetti and Pat Lyons are self-confessed equestrian fans, who first took an interest in the sport via the horse races at the city’s Bet Fair Hollywood Park and the Santa Anita Racetrack. Now, as newly-baptized followers of dressage and jumping events, the two now watch in the stands of the LAEC

With horse racing in Los Angeles on a steady decline, traditional equestrian events are witnessing a recent surge thanks to the support of many organizations and its high-profile fans. With poker champions like John Bonetti and Pat Lyons on the bench, equestrian will continue to see the light of day in the City of Angels.
