BGT fans spot magician card clue as Alesha Dixon 'robs' Golden Buzzer in 'fix'
Britain’s Got Talent say they could see exactly how a magician wowed the judges with his sleight of hand card tricks, amid claims that he should have got the Golden Buzzer.Junwoo, 23, who travelled from his home in South Korea to audition for the ITV show, had the audience gasping as he produced an endless stream of cards, seemingly out of nowhere, to the soundtrack of Cake by the Ocean by DNCE.Alesha Dixon, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden all rose to their feet in admiration at the end of his routine.Some viewers praised his “supernatural” performance and criticised Alesha for not awarding him the Golden Buzzer straight through to the live shows, claiming it was a fix when it went to a hip hop duo later in the show.But others weren’t as impressed with Junwoo’s act, saying they could easily see how he was making his “magic”. One posted on Twitter: “Magician needs to use smaller cards so we don't clearly see them in his hand, and make it less glaringly obvious when he's taking more from his sleeves.”Others noted: “Magicians have done this for years, but with doves,” and: “They’re talking like they’ve never seen magicians do sleight of hands tricks."Junwoo, who only took up magic tricks after watching other contestants on BGT on YouTube, started his act by borrowing Alesha Dixon’s glasses and making them disappear.At the end he produced a box made from cards that contained her missing sunnies.

Scientists who resurrected a corpse’s eyes question if 'death is truly irreversible'
scientists who resurrected a corpse’s eyes say.Technicians were able to ‘bring back to life’ peepers harvested from organ donors.They fired up neurons in the retina five hours after a donor died and witnessed them sending signals “resembling those recorded from living subjects”.Writing in the journal Nature, study chiefs said their work “raises the question of whether brain death is truly irreversible”.Research lead author Dr Fatima Abbas, from the Moran Eye Centre at the University of Utah, said: “We were able to wake up photoreceptor cells in the human macula, which is the part of the retina responsible for our central vision and our ability to see fine detail and colour.“In eyes obtained up to five hours after an organ donor’s death, these cells responded to bright light, coloured lights and even very dim flashes of light.”Dr Frans Vinberg, also from the University of Utah, added: “We were able to make the retinal cells talk to each other, the way they do in the living eye.“This has never been achieved in the macula, and never to the extent we have now demonstrated.”The research is a step up from a 2019 Yale University study, which used a cocktail of chemicals to kickstart the brains of 32 decapitated pigs slaughtered four hours earlier.It failed to revive activity in neurons – a key part of the central nervous system that includes the brain and spinal cord.The new development will bring joy to billionaires including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, 58, who have been pouring millions of dollars into immortality research.Simon Cowell, 62, has also been obsessed with living forever.But he pulled out of his plan to have his body cryogenically frozen after he learned it involved having his head removed from his body.To achieve their
