US Government Prepares For 'Space Weather Event' As NASA Warns "Solar Minimum Is Coming"   

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

A new report and video out from NASA about the upcoming ‘solar minimum’ has been published. The report titled ‘Solar Minimum is Coming’ outlines every 11-years, the sun oscillates from a solar minimum to a maximum. Today, the sun is called “solar minimum,” says Dean Pesnell of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. “And it’s a regular part of the sunspot cycle”. The sun is heading towards a solar minimum where the sunspot count will be relatively low.

The report goes on to say, “while intense activity such as sunspots and solar flares subside during solar minimum, that doesn’t mean the sun becomes dull. Solar activity simply changes form”. During a solar minimum, we can expect more space weather events called coronal holes.

According to the report, coronal holes are vast regions of the sun’s atmosphere where the sun’s magnetic field opens up and allows streams of solar particles to escape the sun as fast solar wind.

Pesnell says “We see these holes throughout the solar cycle, but during solar minimums, they can last for a long time – six months or more”. Solar particles from coronal holes are then ejected towards earth’s magnetic field causing space weather events.

Space weather refers to the environmental conditions in Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere and thermosphere due to the Sun and the solar wind that can influence the functioning and reliability of spaceborne and ground-based systems and services or endanger property or human health.

Meanwhile, The White House in October 2016 quietly passed through an Executive Order— “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events”. 

Here is snippet of section 1 of the executive order:   

Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events — those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure — could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

Back in April 2017, we wrote an article titled ‘Yesterday’s Broad Power Outage Likely Caused By Geomagnetic Storm‘. While everyone thought terrorism was to blame, we correctly pointed out that large power failures in major US cities was due to an intense geomagnetic storm registering 8-10 on K-Planetary Index.

Conclusion: Our fragile nation is not adequately prepared for space weather events as highlighted in the recent Exec Order.

Frankly, this should of been done years ago, but it appears that our nation will soon deal with the consequences such as April 2017 power failures in major US-cities. Couple the solar minimum period with The Fourth Turning in the west, and we’re staring at the perfect cocktail for self-destruction of an empire. Perhaps, the downfall of America is not some external threat that the mainstream media makes you believe, but in actuality, it’s an implosion from with-in. It’s happened to the greatest empires that have attempted to rule our planet, why not now? 

Don’t believe me? Here are various minimums verse the rise and fall of Chinese Dynasties

This video is an overview of the scientific research paper "Plastic pollution in the world's oceans: More than 5 trillion plastic pieces weighing over 250,000 tons afloat at sea," published on the 9th of December 2014 by Dr. Marcus Eriksen - of the 5 Gyres Institute - and an array of esteemed colleagues from around the world.

Abstract:
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous throughout the marine environment, yet estimates of the global abundance and weight of floating plastics have lacked data, particularly from the Southern Hemisphere and remote regions. Here we report an estimate of the total number of plastic particles and their weight floating in the world's oceans from 24 expeditions (2007-2013) across all five sub-tropical gyres, costal Australia, Bay of Bengal and the Mediterranean Sea conducting surface net tows (N = 680) and visual survey transects of large plastic debris (N = 891). Using an oceanographic model of floating debris dispersal calibrated by our data, and correcting for wind-driven vertical mixing, we estimate a minimum of 5.25 trillion particles weighing 268,940 tons. When comparing between four size classes, two microplastic 4.75mm, a tremendous loss of microplastics is observed from the sea surface compared to expected rates of fragmentation, suggesting there are mechanisms at play that remove

CERN Breaking Records With Unprecedented Number of Particles In Record Time 
CERN is the evil program which will literally open the "gates of hell".   Our Lady said to wear her scapular and pray her rosary but how FEW take this message seriously.  I guess that is why 3/4 of the world will die in the 3 days of darkness...
Apocalypse 9: 1-5 with St. Jerome's commentary: "And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. [2] And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. [3] And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: [4] And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. [5] And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man. 

[1] "A star fall": This may mean the fall and apostasy of great and learned men from the true faith. Or a whole nation falling into error and separating from the church, not having the sign of God in their foreheads.
[1] "The key of the bottomless pit": That is, to the angel, not to the fallen star. To this angel was given the power, which is here signified by a key, of opening hell.
[3] "There came out locusts": These may be devils in Antichrist's time, having the appearance of locusts, but large and monstrous, as here described. 




An unprecedented number of particles has been reached in record time. Just five weeks after physics resumed, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is already running at full throttle. On Wednesday 28 June 2017 the LHC established yet another record-breaking high, with 2556 proton bunches circulating in each direction of the accelerator. The beams in the LHC are made up of bunches of protons, spaced seven metres (25 nanoseconds) apart, with each one containing more than 100 billion protons. 2556 is the maximum possible number of bunches that can be reached with the beam preparation method currently used.
The particle bunches that are delivered to the LHC are prepared and accelerated by a chain of four accelerators. Since last year, a new method to group and split the bunches enables the particles to be squeezed even closer together. With an equal number of protons, the beam diameter was reduced by 40 per cent. Denser bunches means a higher probability of collisions at the centre of the experiments.
This success has led to a new luminosityrecord for the LHC of 1.58x1034 cm-2s-1. This figure may not mean much to most of us, but it's crucial for the accelerator's experts. It measures the number of potential collisions per second and per unit of area . This new peak luminosity surpasses initial expectations defined by the original designs for the LHC, which hoped it could reach a maximum of 1x1034cm-2s-1.
A higher luminosity means more collisions for the experiments collecting data: in just a few weeks ATLAS and CMS stored more than 6 inverse femtobarns, over an eighth of the total anticipated for the whole year.
Nevertheless, the operators cannot sit on their hands. Many parameters can be tuned to further improve the luminosity.
Next week, the LHC and its experiments will take a short break for the first of the two technical stops planned for the year. This will be an opportunity to carry out maintenance.

THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS

 Marie-Julie announced the three days of darkness during which the infernal powers will be loosed and will execute all the enemies of God. "The crisis will explode suddenly; the punishments will be shared by all and will succeed one another without interruption ..." [January 4, 1884] "The three days of darkness will be on a THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Days of the Most Holy Sacrament, of the Cross and Our Lady ... three days less one night."

"The earth will be covered in darkness", says Our Lady on 20th of September 1882, "AND HELL WILL BE LOOSED ON EARTH. Thunder and lightning will cause those who have no faith or trust in My Power, to die of fear."

"During these three days of terrifying darkness, no windows must be opened, because no one will be able to see the earth and the terrible colour it will have in those days of punishment without dying at once ..."

"The sky will be on fire, the earth will split ... During these three days of darkness let the blessed candle be lighted everywhere, no other light will shine ..."

"NO ONE OUTSIDE A SHELTER.. will survive. The earth will shake as at the judgment and fear will be great. Yes, We will listen to the prayers of your friends; NOT ONE WILL PERISH. We will need them to publish the glory of the Cross ..." [December 8, 1882]

"THE CANDLES OF BLESSED WAX ALONE WILL GIVE LIGHT during this horrible darkness. ONE CANDLE alone will be enough for the duration of this night of hell ... In the homes of the wicked and blasphemers these candles will give NO LIGHT."

"And Our Lady states: "Everything will shake except the piece of furniture on which the blessed candle is burning. This will not shake. You will all gather around with the crucifix and my blessed picture. This is what will keep away this terror."

"During this darkness the devils and the wicked will take on THE MOST HIDEOUS SHAPES ... red clouds like blood will move across the sky. The crash of the thunder will shake the earth and sinister lightning will streak the heavens out of season. The earth will be shaken to its foundations. The sea will rise, its roaring waves will spread over the continent. .."

 "THE EARTH WILL BECOME LIKE A VAST CEMETERY. The bodies of the wicked and the just will cover the ground."

"Three-quarters of the population of the globe will disappear. Half the population of France will be destroyed."


"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church (Catholic), and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
[Matthew 16:18]

Uterine Fibroids Signs, Prognosis And Remedy Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a non-surgical method that shrinks fibroids with out eradicating them. Tiny plastic particles are injected by means of the catheter into uterine arteries to cut the blood provide to the tumor, inflicting the fibroids to shrink. The embolic agent is released into each the best and left uterine arteries by repositioning the same catheter that was initially inserted. Patients taken with pregnancy after therapy may be thought of for UFE, however solely after cautious consideration of the patient's wants and preferences. Harm to different pelvic organs is feasible and the possibility of different significant issues is lower than 1 percent. About 20% of women with fibroids have extreme signs-usually heavy menstrual bleeding and/or pelvic pain or stress. Comply with-up studies show that after therapy with GnRH agonists is stopped, there is regrowth of both the fibroid tumors and the uterus to near-pretreatment dimension, which is commonly associated with the return of fibroid-associated signs. Most often, both uterine arteries could be treated by means of a single catheter insertion. While the fibroids might cross on their own, a D and C may be wanted to take away the tissue. Arteriography is performed ( Determine 1 ), and tiny particles of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), approximately 500 μm in diameter, are injected in a slurry into the artery ( Figure 2a ). The process is repeated in the right uterine artery. Although not reported publicly we assume she has had no troublesome unwanted side effects and experienced relief from her symptoms. In more than 99 percent of fibroid circumstances, the tumors are benign (non-cancerous).

Description:

Clusters: a miniature ballet performed by thousands of colored dots.

How many ways can colored dots chase each other around? What happens when a hundred dots fall in love with each other? What happens when some dots are afraid of other dots and fly away when they come near?

With the Clusters app, you can explore the dynamics of colored dots that huddle, hug, swarm, squiggle and scram. It's all based on a clever particle system algorithm that uses a mix of attractions and repulsions.

Each color is like a species in an ecosystem. Some species enjoy each other's company, so they stick together. Other species avoid each other like the plague. So, you may ask...what happens when a yellow dot and a blue dot are in love, but the yellow dot hates red dots, while the blue dot loves red dots? What happens when a red dot comes along?

Sometimes there's a skirmish. Other times, there's a delicately-balanced symbiotic relationship. When hundreds of these dots converge, the results can be quite unpredictable.

With the Clusters app, you can set up little experiments and watch what happens. It's a little bit like biology; it's a little bit like physics. So, what is it exactly? Let your imagination decide.

Air Pollution and Mortality in the Medicare Population.

N Engl J Med. 2017 Jun 29;376(26):2513-2522

Authors: Di Q, Wang Y, Zanobetti A, Wang Y, Koutrakis P, Choirat C, Dominici F, Schwartz JD

Abstract
Background Studies have shown that long-term exposure to air pollution increases mortality. However, evidence is limited for air-pollution levels below the most recent National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Previous studies involved predominantly urban populations and did not have the statistical power to estimate the health effects in underrepresented groups. Methods We constructed an open cohort of all Medicare beneficiaries (60,925,443 persons) in the continental United States from the years 2000 through 2012, with 460,310,521 person-years of follow-up. Annual averages of fine particulate matter (particles with a mass median aerodynamic diameter of less than 2.5 μm [PM2.5]) and ozone were estimated according to the ZIP Code of residence for each enrollee with the use of previously validated prediction models. We estimated the risk of death associated with exposure to increases of 10 μg per cubic meter for PM2.5 and 10 parts per billion (ppb) for ozone using a two-pollutant Cox proportional-hazards model that controlled for demographic characteristics, Medicaid eligibility, and area-level covariates. Results Increases of 10 μg per cubic meter in PM2.5 and of 10 ppb in ozone were associated with increases in all-cause mortality of 7.3% (95% confidence interval [CI], 7.1 to 7.5) and 1.1% (95% CI, 1.0 to 1.2), respectively. When the analysis was restricted to person-years with exposure to PM2.5 of less than 12 μg per cubic meter and ozone of less than 50 ppb, the same increases in PM2.5 and ozone were associated with increases in the risk of death of 13.6% (95% CI, 13.1 to 14.1) and 1.0% (95% CI, 0.9 to 1.1), respectively. For PM2.5, the risk of death among men, blacks, and people with Medicaid eligibility was higher than that in the rest of the population. Conclusions In the entire Medicare population, there was significant evidence of adverse effects related to exposure to PM2.5 and ozone at concentrations below current national standards. This effect was most pronounced among self-identified racial minorities and people with low income. (Supported by the Health Effects Institute and others.).

          COMMUNICATION   

A lifelong process in the human life, COMMUNICATION is a way to express oneself in various ways : using words and without using a single word.

COMMUNICATION is the exchange or interchange of ideas or objects between two people or designated locations. More precisely the definition of communication is the consideration and action of impelling an impulse or particle from source point across a distance to receipt point, with the intention of bringing into being at the receipt point a duplication and understanding of that which emanated from the source point. The formula of communication is: cause, distance, effect, with intention, attention and duplication and understanding. Communication by definition does not need to be two-way. Communication is one of the component parts of understanding.


COMMUNICATION is the process of exchanging information and ideas. An active process, it involves encoding, transmitting, and decoding intended messages. There are many means of communicating and many different language systems. Speech and language are only a portion of communication.

Ask yourself: Who? What? How? When? Where? Why?

- Who are you speaking to?
- What do you wish to communicate?
- How can you best convey your message?
- When? Timing is important here.
- Where? What is the physical context of the communication in mind?
- Why? What disposes them to listen?

COMMUNICATION requires effective time management : RIGHT WORD AT THE RIGHT MOMENT...

          $2 million NIH grant to help UF researchers pursue multiple sclerosis vaccine   
Many drug treatments for multiple sclerosis suppress the entire immune system, a big drawback that leaves patients susceptible to infection and cancer. Now two University of Florida researchers have been awarded a $2.6 million grant by the National Institutes of Health to study the development of a vaccine in mouse models that could delay a relapse of MS, a bit like a flu or chickenpox vaccination. A key to their work is the vaccine’s ability to narrowly target an undesirable immune response causing MS while leaving intact a patient’s general immunity to infection and disease. The five-year grant was awarded to Dorina Avram, Ph.D., a professor of medicine and immunology in the UF College of Medicine and the director of pulmonary immunology in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine; and Benjamin Keselowsky, Ph.D., an associate professor in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering. The collaboration is based on Keselowsky’s pioneering work using the vaccine method as a treatment for Type 1 diabetes. “We want to give hope to people with multiple sclerosis,” said Avram. “You cannot cure MS. There is no way. But the hope of this treatment would be to extend the remission period in the patient and keep the patient with an intact immune response in such a way that it can respond to infections.” An estimated 2.5 million people worldwide and 400,000 in the United States have the disease, according to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. About 200 new cases are diagnosed each week in the U.S. MS is a debilitating neurological and inflammatory disease that typically affects young adults. In patients with MS, the body’s immune cells target and destroy the myelin sheath that wraps nerve cells like the insulation on a wire. This invariably makes it difficult for the central nervous system to communicate with the rest of the body. Symptoms vary widely and include muscle weakness, problems with coordination, vertigo, numbness and, in extreme cases, paralysis. The key to treatment is to discourage the body’s attack on itself. Keselowsky and Avram’s grant proposes using microscopic particles composed of the same material used to make sutures, which easily dissolve in the body and already are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These particles then deliver specific antigens – molecules that induce a response by the immune system – and other agents that essentially reprogram the T cells’ behavior and their ability to recruit other immune cell populations. The hoped result is that the T cells and other immune cell populations are then less likely to attack and destroy the myelin sheath protecting nerve cells. The technique works like a therapeutic vaccine, re-educating the body’s immune response and blocking the attack. “We are hoping to do the treatment during the remission phase of MS to extend the remission so the mouse patients do not go back into relapse, which is ideal,” Avram said. And the antigen delivery by the microscopic particles is so specific, she said, it is believed that it will not generally suppress the immune system. The grant, she said, also allows researchers to study the mechanism by which the vaccine operates and to determine whether it can be extended during the relapse of the disease. In addition, Avram noted the goal is to extend the vaccine treatment to patients and to other immune diseases. The Research Project Grant, commonly called an RO1, is NIH’s oldest and most competitive. Among RO1 applications by established principal investigators to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – the NIH institute overseeing Avram’s grant – about 11 percent of proposals are funded.

Instead of behaving like a fluid surface that flows to balance unequal stresses, the 'armor' of particles on the surface of the bubbles actually supports the unequal stresses inherent in non-spherical shapes." - Anand Bala Subramaniam

Why is Conditional Self-Esteem important?

Happiness doesn't depend on anything outside ourselves.

Smart Mineral products affect your vibration, clear your emotional fields by changing the resonance with which you are interacting with the universe. Guilt produces a strong negative pull on your emotions to draw into your life many unwanted and undeserved manifestations.

This product will help you clear the vibration and break the link that pulls you into manifesting more of what you are trying to move away from, leave behind so that you can live your life to your design, not as the consequence of some unwise choices you have made in the past.

What are Levels of Consciousness? What level are we at? Professor Farrell S. Brenner shares his scales of Consciousness.

There is no doubt that we live in "interesting times" of extraordinary challenge. For example, geo-scientists say that global warming is a massive threat. Biologists say that entire species are going extinct at an alarming rate. There is news of impending epidemics from Bird Flu, West Nile virus, while potential super viruses loom on the horizon, and the climate of terror and war capture the world's attention.  

Paradoxically, wise men from several indigenous cultures have given the message that this is also a time of great opportunity to awaken to higher consciousness.

Most recently, Professor Farrell S. Brenner discovered that raising self-esteem can result in surprisingly large increases of LOC. His research in beliefs dovetailed with his nutritional research regarding the consciousness mediating effects of highly charged, structured minerals of ultra fine particle size. These discoveries and a bolt of inspiration resulted in creation of The Gift.

          Candida Cleanse | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast | Podcast #192

If you've had a long standing problem (more than one year) then it will take some time to clear because the spores of Candida spread from your digestive system into all tissues of your body. Intestinal cleansing alone will not cleanse your lymph and tissues. The only way to completely clear Candida problems is to get the Candida into circulation in your body, where it can then be eliminated. But this takes time. The key point to remember is that you must provide your body with enough friendly microbes, over time, in order to outnumber the problem causing ones and repopulate their territory. Ultimately, without getting the dormant candida spores that are resting in your muscle and brain tissue, you will never clear the candida. This concept is greatly misunderstood by many. In fact most people will not go through the die-off stage because it can be very severe. However this detox is necessary to clear out your system. If you want a healthy and clean ecology, there will be disruption in order to strike the balance. The rate of detox and die off are directly related to product input and consequently the activation of the dormant spores within tissues. The rate of detox and elimination are directly proportionate to the amount you put in. Die-off and detoxifying can be tempered by the rate at which you ingest Genki Foods. Compliance to the program is essential to reach the goal. Candida Cleanse Natural Mineral Detoxifier Zeolite Pure is the all natural mineral Zeolite that has been proven to absorb toxins, free radicals, and heavy metals from your body, as well as boost your immune system. This mineral will balance your body's pH, creating an environment that foreign cells can not grow in. For those not wanting to take capsules, this is pure powdered Zeolite in an economical container. Zeolite is a natural mineral that has a cage like structure and is negatively charged by nature. The negative charge acts like a magnet to attract toxins and heavy metals into its cage structure and carry them out of the body. It also balances the pH in the body which doesn't allow foreign cells to grow. Purification, Detoxification, and Purging with Zeolite Pure Unbalanced diets, pollution and food additives can all cause toxins and heavy metals to build up and damage your body. This often leads to acidosis and clogging of cell membranes. In other words, our cells slowly suffocate. Buildup of heavy metals (especially cadmium, mercury and lead) are the cause of many serious medical conditions. The particles of Zeolite Pure are so fine that they can actually pass in between your body's cells. Due to its extraordinary adsorption and selection capabilities, Zeolite Pure binds with toxins and, most importantly, harmful heavy metals, allowing these substances to be easily eliminated from your body. Zeolite Pure is often used to eliminate heavy metals like lead and cadmium and to remove buildup of mercury (used in dental amalgam fillings). Due to Zeolite Pure's alkaline properties (buffer action) it is also possible to properly regulate your body's pH balance. But Zeolite Pure can do a lot more! It is also a highly effective antioxidant, which means it neutralizes free radicals.

You could fill a small library with the books and official research reports written on this subject. Do some research if you or your family suffer from allergies or unexplained physical symptoms. Many popular building materials, including plywood, particle board, treated lumber, adhesives, paint, paint thinners, insulation, paint strippers, carpets, and carpet pads--even decorative paraffin candles--contain highly toxic materials such as formaldehyde, chloroform, lead vapor, arsenic, and countless other toxins. They can enter your living area as gaseous vapors and increase the toxic load of the body. Add to that the problem of toxic black molds, and you have a very toxic home. For detailed information on this subject, see The Safe Shopper's Bible by David Steinman and Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Diet for a Poisoned Planet by David Steinman, and Toxic Relief by Don Colbert, M.D. Each week Martin Pytela and Scott Paton discuss Holistic principles for healthy living.

          Search for heavy Majorana neutrinos in Run II and feasibility study of a track-trigger for Phase 2 with the CMS detector at the LHC   
This thesis intends to present the salient anspects of the research work carried forward in collaboration with the CMS experiment group, during my PhD. The LHC accelerator and CMS detector main features are illustrated in the first chapter. The second chapter regards the CMS tracker subdetector status, performances, and future perspectives. The crucial role of the tracker in the HL(High Luminosity)-LHC era, starting from 2020, is here introduced. Once clarified the technological context and the principles of work of the machines, where the proton collisions take place, and thanks to which the particles can be revealed, a specific data anlysis of the 2015 data collected by CMS will be shown. First, the current state of the searches of new physics, focusing on heavy neutrinos and leptoquarks, is illustrated in chapter 3, where the basis for a new search are provided. An original model is proposed (chapter 4), that leads a new experimental analysis, whose strategy and results are examined in chapter 5. This is a search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) in the final state with two same-flavour leptons (electrons or muons) and two quarks. The analysis is performed using proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV, recorded by the CMS experiment, at the CERN LHC. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb−1; the results are interpreted in the framework of a recently proposed model, in which a heavy Majorana neutrino stems from a composite scenario. The CMS collaboration is preparing the field to extend these searches in the future, at higher luminosity conditions. The HL LHC will require a totally different trigger paradigm, with the inclusion of the tracker at Level-1. After introducing the general needs and upgrade plans towards this new phase (chapter 6), a specific track-trigger proposal is formulated, based on the PCA statistical method. The software simulation and the hardware prototype of this innovative system will be discussed in chapter 7.

          In-vitro replication of Chelonid herpesvirus 5 in organotypic skin cultures from Hawaiian green turtles (Chelonia mydas)   

Fibropapillomatosis (FP) is a tumor disease of marine turtles associated with Chelonid herpesvirus 5 (ChHV5) that has historically been refractory to growth in tissue culture. Here, we show for the first time de novo formation of ChHV5-positive intranuclear inclusions in cultured green turtle cells, which is indicative for active lytic replication of the virus. The minimal requirements to achieve lytic replication in cultured cells included 1) either in-vitro culturing of ChHV5-positive tumor biopsies (plugs) or organotypic cultures (rafts) consisting of ChHV5-positive turtle fibroblasts in collagen rafts seeded with turtle keratinocytes and 2) keratinocyte maturation induced by raising raft or biopsy cultures to the air-liquid interface. Virus growth was confirmed by detailed electron microscopic studies revealing intranuclear sun-shaped capsid factories, tubules, various stages of capsid formation, nuclear export by budding into the perinuclear space, tegumentation, and envelopment to complete de novo virus production. Membrane synthesis was also observed as a sign for active viral replication. Interestingly, cytoplasmic particles became associated with keratin filaments, a feature not seen in conventional monolayer cell cultures where most studies of herpesvirus replication have been performed. Our findings draw a rich and realistic picture of ChHV5 replication in cells derived from its natural host and may be crucial not only to better understand ChHV5 circulation but also to eventually complete Koch's postulates for FP. Moreover, the principles described here may serve as model to culture other viruses that are resistant to replication in conventional cell culture.


          Comparison of size, terminal fall velocity, and density of bighead carp, silver carp, and grass carp eggs for use in drift modeling   
Invasive Asian carp established in the United States spawn in the turbulent water of rivers, and their eggs and early larvae develop while drifting in the current. The eggs, which are believed to perish if they settle before hatching, are slightly denser than water and are held in suspension by water turbulence. It is possible to use egg drift modeling to assess the capability of a river to support the survival of Asian carp eggs. Detection of spawning and estimation of egg abundance in the drift are typically assessed by ichthyoplankton trawls. Correct sampling design and interpretation of trawl data require knowledge of the vertical distribution of eggs in the drift, which can be accomplished with particle transport models. Data that are required to populate models of egg drift and vertical distribution include physical properties of assessed rivers and information on egg size, density, and terminal fall velocity, but data on these egg characteristics have not been previously available. Physical characteristics of the eggs are presented as a function of postfertilization time. We recorded mean egg diameter and terminal fall velocity for eggs from each Asian carp species during the first 5 h of development and at approximately 12 and 22 h postfertilization. Eggs of all species reached their maximum size before 4 h. Water-hardened eggs of Silver Carp Hypophthalmichthys molitrix and Grass Carp Ctenopharyngodon idella were similarly sized in our trials, and water-hardened eggs of Bighead Carp H. nobilis were the largest. After water hardening, Silver Carp eggs sank slowest, and Bighead Carp eggs sank fastest. For a given species, smaller-diameter eggs generally had faster terminal fall velocities and higher specific gravity than larger eggs. We provide regression models of egg density and diameter for all three species, discuss usage of these data in modeling the drift and dispersion of Asian carp eggs, and discuss implications for egg sampling design.
          The deep chlorophyll layer in Lake Ontario: Extent, mechanisms of formation, and abiotic predictors   

Epilimnetic production has declined in Lake Ontario, but increased production in metalimnetic deep chlorophyll layers (DCLs) may compensate for these losses. We investigated the spatial and temporal extent of DCLs, the mechanisms driving DCL formation, and the use of physical variables for predicting the depth and concentration of the deep chlorophyll maximum (DCM) during April–September 2013. A DCL with DCM concentrations 2 to 3 times greater than those in the epilimnion was present when the euphotic depth extended below the epilimnion, which occurred primarily from late June through mid-August. In situ growth was important for DCL formation in June and July, but settling and photoadaptation likely also contributed to the later-season DCL. Supporting evidence includes: phytoplankton biovolume was 2.4 × greater in the DCL than in the epilimnion during July, the DCL phytoplankton community of July was different from that of May and the July epilimnion (p = 0.004), and there were concurrences of DCM with maxima in fine particle concentration and dissolved oxygen saturation. Higher nutrient levels in the metalimnion may also be a necessary condition for DCL formation because July metalimnetic concentrations were 1.5 × (nitrate) and 3.5 × (silica) greater than in the epilimnion. Thermal structure variables including epilimnion depth, thermocline depth, and thermocline steepness were useful for predicting DCM depth; the inclusion of euphotic depth only marginally improved these predictions. However, euphotic depth was critical for predicting DCM concentrations. The DCL is a productive and predictable feature of the Lake Ontario ecosystem during the stratified period.


          Collecting a better water-quality sample: Reducing vertical stratification bias in open and closed channels   

Collection of water-quality samples that accurately characterize average particle concentrations and distributions in channels can be complicated by large sources of variability. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed a fully automated Depth-Integrated Sample Arm (DISA) as a way to reduce bias and improve accuracy in water-quality concentration data. The DISA was designed to integrate with existing autosampler configurations commonly used for the collection of water-quality samples in vertical profile thereby providing a better representation of average suspended sediment and sediment-associated pollutant concentrations and distributions than traditional fixed-point samplers. In controlled laboratory experiments, known concentrations of suspended sediment ranging from 596 to 1,189 mg/L were injected into a 3 foot diameter closed channel (circular pipe) with regulated flows ranging from 1.4 to 27.8 ft3 /s. Median suspended sediment concentrations in water-quality samples collected using the DISA were within 7 percent of the known, injected value compared to 96 percent for traditional fixed-point samplers. Field evaluation of this technology in open channel fluvial systems showed median differences between paired DISA and fixed-point samples to be within 3 percent. The range of particle size measured in the open channel was generally that of clay and silt. Differences between the concentration and distribution measured between the two sampler configurations could potentially be much larger in open channels that transport larger particles, such as sand.


          Comparison of benthos and plankton for Waukegan Harbor Area of Concern, Illinois, and Burns Harbor-Port of Indiana non-Area of Concern, Indiana, in 2015   

During two seasonal sampling events in spring (June) and fall (August) of 2015, the U.S. Geological Survey collected benthos (benthic invertebrates) and plankton (zooplankton and phytoplankton) at three sites each in the Waukegan Harbor Area of Concern (AOC) in Illinois and in Burns Harbor-Port of Indiana, a non-AOC comparison site in Indiana. The study was done in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Samples were collected concurrently for physical and chemical parameters (specific conductance, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll-a, total and volatile suspended solids in water samples; particle size and volatile-on-ignition solids of sediment in dredge samples). The purpose of the study was to assess whether or not aquatic communities at the AOC were degraded in comparison to communities at the non-AOC, which was presumed to be less impaired than the AOC. Benthos were collected by using Hester-Dendy artificial substrate samplers and a Ponar® dredge sampler to collect composited grabs of bottom sediment; zooplankton were collected by using tows from depth to the surface with a 63-micrometer mesh plankton net; phytoplankton were collected by using whole water samples composited from set depth intervals. Aquatic communities at the AOC and the non-AOC were compared by use of univariate statistical analyses with metrics such as taxa richness (number of unique taxa), diversity, and a multimetric Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI, for artificial-substrate samples only) as well as by use of multivariate statistical analyses of taxa relative abundances.

Although benthos communities at Waukegan Harbor AOC were not rated as degraded in comparison to the non-AOC, metrics for zooplankton and phytoplankton communities did show some impairment for the 2015 sampling. Across seasons, benthos richness and diversity were significantly higher and rated as less degraded at the AOC compared to the non-AOC; however, benthos IBIs were not significantly different. Multivariate comparisons revealed that the benthos communities in the AOC and non-AOC were significantly different, but these comparisons do not address current degradation in either harbor. The dominant taxa in dredge samples were oligochaete worms in both harbors, but there were differences in the relative abundances of Dreissena as well as oligochaete and midge taxa. Although zooplankton richness and diversity in the AOC were lower and rated as more degraded in spring, these metrics were rated as less degraded in fall compared to the non-AOC, effectively balancing out so that there was no difference across seasons. Multivariate comparisons also indicated that zooplankton communities in the AOC were significantly different from those in the non-AOC for spring only but not across seasons, possibly because of lower water temperatures in spring at Waukegan Harbor than at the non-AOC site. The spring zooplankton community in Waukegan Harbor was dominated in density and biomass by the rotifer Synchaeta. Across seasons, diatom richness was significantly higher and rated as less degraded in the AOC than the non-AOC because of spring values, whereas soft algae richness was significantly lower and rated as more degraded in the AOC because of fall values. Spring richness of combined phytoplankton (soft algae and diatoms) was significantly higher in the AOC than in the non-AOC. Neither diatom diversity nor soft algae diversity differed significantly between the harbors, but combined phytoplankton diversity across seasons, if replicates were included, was significantly lower and rated as more degraded in the AOC than in the non-AOC. Multivariate tests indicated that the combined phytoplankton communities in the harbors were not significantly different across seasons. Significant differences were not found between harbors for chlorophyll-a, suspended solids, algal densities, or biomass.


          Assessing changes in the physico-chemical properties and fluoride adsorption capacity of activated alumina under varied conditions   

Adsorption using activated alumina is a simple method for removing fluoride from drinking water, but to be cost effective the adsorption capacity must be high and effective long-term. The intent of this study was to assess changes in its adsorption capacity under varied conditions. This was determined by evaluating the physico-chemical properties, surface charge, and fluoride (F) adsorption capacity and rate of activated alumina under conditions such as hydration period, particle size, and slow vs. fast titrations. X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy analyses show that the mineralogy of activated alumina transformed to boehmite, then bayerite with hydration period and a corresponding reduction in adsorption capacity was expected; while surface area analyses show no notable changes with hydration period or particle size. The pH dependent surface charge was three times higher using slow potentiometric titrations as compared to fast titrations (due largely to diffusion into pore space), with the surface acidity generally unaffected by hydration period. Results from batch adsorption experiments similarly show no change in fluoride adsorption capacity with hydration period. There was also no notable difference in fluoride adsorption capacity between the particle size ranges of 0.5–1.0 mm and 0.125–0.250 mm, or with hydration period. However, adsorption rate increased dramatically with the finer particle sizes: at an initial F concentration of 0.53 mmol L−1 (10 mg L−1), 90% was adsorbed in the 0.125–0.250 mm range after 1 h, while the 0.5–1.0 mm range required 24 h to achieve 90% adsorption. Also, the pseudo-second-order adsorption rate constants for the finer vs. larger particle sizes were 3.7 and 0.5 g per mmol F per min respectively (24 h); and the initial intraparticle diffusion rate of the former was 2.6 times faster than the latter. The results show that adsorption capacity of activated alumina remains consistent and high under the conditions evaluated in this study, but in order to increase adsorption rate, a relatively fine particle size is recommended.

          Stay Cool    

Summer officially started this week. Has anyone checked with Mother Nature? Are we sure she got the memo? Seriously, sometimes I can’t tell where we are with the weather. I don’t really mind the hot weather at all, as long as I can do things like jump in a river, or ride my bike. The warmer days had me thinking about an interesting topic that spans a bit more than just electricity and magnetism, but I thought it might be interesting anyway. How do we cool things down?

I’ve always been fascinated by this actually. Even as a child, I could understand, heating things up was easy. Fire is easy. Warming myself up in winter with a heavier jacket was easy. Cooling things down is always trickier, and there are several ways to do it. To get a better understanding of how we cool things down, we have to start at the very basics. What is temperature? Actually, what we call temperature is a measure of motion, specifically of atoms and particles. They’re not moving from A to B, but rather, vibrating in place, or in the case of gases, moving around haphazardly. The faster they move, the higher the temperature of the substance. When all motion stops, the substance if brutally cold. So cold, in fact, that it has a special name: absolute zero. Absolute zero is approximately -273.15 Celsius or -459.67 Fahrenheit. We even have a temperature scale that starts at absolute zero, called the Kelvin scale. 0 Kelvin is absolute zero. The motion of the atoms or particles also gives off something called black body radiation. This is simply thermal-spectrum electromagnetic radiation. As such, it’s part of the electromagnetic spectrum I wrote about some time ago. This is how infrared cameras work as well as any thermal imaging camera.

With that background in place, it’ll make more sense when I explain certain cooling methods we commonly use. One of the most efficient and effective cooling methods is gas decompression. This is how nearly all refrigerators, air conditioners and heat pumps work. In any gas, the molecules comprising the gas are spaced pretty far apart. When you compress them into a tinier volume of space, the gas will increase in temperature. Is this because the particles are now hitting each other more often and creating more frictional heating? It would be nice if that’s how it worked, but it’s actually a bit more complicated than that. The simplest way to understand heating of compressed gas is to understand conservation of energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Compressing a gas requires some amount of energy, and that energy has to go somewhere. It ends up going into the gas causing the particles to move faster, which we observe as heat. From a physical standpoint, the gas particles are interacting with the boundaries of their space more frequently as the space containing them shrinks. The most scientifically accurate explanation of the temperature increase is that by reducing the available volume of space, you’re increasing your theoretical knowledge of where each particle is. Instead of being somewhere in a huge volume of space, each particle is now in some much smaller volume. You’re decreasing the entropy of the gas. That knowledge doesn’t come free though. The particles essentially say, “ok, we’ll let you know more about where we are, but in turn we’re going to let you know less about our speeds, because we’re going to move faster.”

Whew…all of that. Are you still with me? Hadley, you haven’t mentioned a single thing about cooling yet! Just heating! Yes, but now all the pieces are available. When we compress a gas, it heats up for the reasons stated above, but we can do something with that heat. We don’t have to let the gas just stay hot. This is what refrigerators do. Once they compress a gas, they pass it through some type of heat sink. This is a device that allows the heat of the gas/fluid inside to dissipate as quickly as possible to the ambient environment. Once this happens, we have a roughly room temperature compressed gas. If we allow the gas to decompress, its temperature will fall…to below room temperature. The particles are now saying, “ok, you’re increasing our volume, and this means you’ll know less about where we are. So to compensate, we’ll slow down a bit so you can at least know how fast we’re going.” Obviously the trick in any of these refrigeration systems is being able to compress the gas a lot as well as being able to efficiently remove the heat from the compressed gas.

This process will work for any gas, including air. In fact, I encounter this phenomenon every time I air down the tires on my bike. The tires are filled with ordinary air, compressed to between 90 and 110 PSI. When initially pressurized, they do heat up, but over time, they cool to ambient temperature. When I rapidly release the pressure, the valve becomes noticeably cold to the touch. In most refrigeration, we don’t use air, we use some kind of refrigerant, like Freon. Freon is the trademark name for any number of different gasses used as refrigerants known as halocarbons. You’ve probably heard of at least some of these by their scientific name, chlorofluorocarbons (abbreviated CFCs). These are the same CFCs that scientists discovered were causing ozone depletion in the 1980s and 1990s, so they aren’t in widespread use anymore. All refrigerants are just special types of gas that have properties that are beneficial to what we’ll be doing with them.

The important thing to remember is that if you’re unable to remove the heat from the compressed gas, and you let it decompress, all it will do is decrease back to roughly room temperature where it started. So it won’t be cool the way we want it. If you want the gas to be very cold, you have to make its starting temperature less. There is actually no limit to this (beyond absolute zero) and this is how we create extremely cold substances like liquid nitrogen. In fact, you can sometimes create bits of dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) by releasing a fire extinguisher into a burlap sack. The CO2 in the fire extinguisher is compressed, and if it’s been sitting long enough, it’s also at room temperature. Releasing the pressure causes a large decrease in temperature. So large that the gas actually solidifies into its solid state.

Hopefully this was an interesting slight deviation from my usual topics of electromagentism.

          Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon 2.5 inch Cream 007 3 yard Bias Cut by flowerseedpaper   

12.00 USD

Here we have listed our 2.5" wide silk in three yard increments for $4 per yard. If you order multiple quantities, we will supply one continuous length. This ribbon will be cut from our 38 yard spools which are available to purchase for $109 (which would be @ $2.87 per yard).

Wash before use! Our hand dyed silks need to be washed before use to prevent transference of dye (if they will be exposed to water in any form). In our wash process we cannot get the last bits of unexhausted dye molecules out of the fabric. For a dry use application this is not relevant as there is only slight crocking on only a few of the more vibrant colors. The bleeding that happens with our silks can be prevented by gentle handwashing (really no more than a light soak in a bowl of water) of the length you intend to work with. Since our silks are dyed and washed on the spool, the pressure present while the spools are tightly wrapped prevents the last few dye particles from leaving the material. Once you unwrap the silk for use on your project the last bit of dye will easily leave the fabric and you don’t want that to end up on a bride’s gown! A gentle hand wash will not alter the color of the fabric at all. No cleaning agent or setting agent is necessary, the dye has already bonded with the silk fibers. The excess just needs to be rinsed away. After rinsing you can squeeze the water out, lay the silk flat on a towel to dry and then iron flat if you prefer to avoid wrinkles. We don’t recommend hanging the silk to dry as it will stretch and may become narrower than you want.
These silk ribbons are colorfast (after washing) washable, dry-cleanable, 100% silk and are bias cut which gives them a dramatic drape. Because of the bias cut, there is a seam every two yards in the continuous spool and the raw unfinished edges will naturally soften with wear. We finish our seams with silk thread to help create a seamless appearance throughout the spools.

We highly recommend ordering samples if your project is color sensitive. We also recommend washing a sample to see how it behaves before working the silk into anything that may be exposed to water.

These Earth Silk spools are made by hand in our Seattle studio. Our hand dipped dyeing process produces a unique look with subtle qualities that cannot be found in traditional ribbon dyeing. Our process creates almost zero waste and generates a stunning work of art.

In conventional dyeing the thread is first dyed in a vat and then loaded onto a loom where the strands are woven together to form the ribbon. In our hand dyeing method all of the action happens while the bias cut spool is tightly wrapped, and that pressure influences where and how the dye is absorbed. We hope you enjoy our ribbons as much as we like making them! There are over 150 colors in our line and we continue to add more as our customers continue to bring custom requests. Contact us with yours!

In the many years that we have been working with the conventional silk dyes we have encountered time and time again inconsistencies from the dye manufacturer's goods that impact our colors. What we have found, for instance, is that one batch of "Black" has a visible green undertone to it and the next batch of "Black" has a visible blue undertone to it. Calls to the dye manufacture unfortunately are not met with helpful comments. Rather than speaking about the noticeable visible difference in both the wet and dry format of their product, they enquired about our dyeing process, suggesting that our methods were the root cause of the color difference in the finished fabric. As a result; when we open a new container of dye we have to rebuild some of our colors so that our finished silks match the ribbon colors you see on your sample cards. This is leading to a build up of "seconds" that we have on hand of colors that are close, but not on the money. You can find these in our store here in Seattle and on Etsy. Thanks for your understanding if you encounter color differences and know that we do everything we can to ensure a consistent and quality product of the highest standards.

          Peach pearl earrings, handmade eco friendly fine silver earrings-OOAK by envydesignsjewelry   

73.00 USD

Peach baroque pearls that drip from handmade recycled fine silver 'pods'. The silver links reminded me of potato bugs when I finished them! I gave the silver an antique patina after they were fired, tumbled and domed.
The earrings are finished with sterling silver french hook ear wires and come with rubber stoppers to keep them snugly on your ears.
These earrings mesure 43mm x 14mm, or just a bit over 1 1/2 inches long. The pearls are 10.5 mm.

A note on precious metal clay:
ArtClay silver is a recycled product that consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. The clay can be worked like other forms of clay, sculpted to almost any shape you desire. The product is then fired at an extremely high temperature, either by kiln or torch. The binder burns away resulting in a pure silver (.999) piece. The silver is reclaimed from such sources as 35mm film and medical and industrial leftovers. No strip mining necessary.

          Citrine & sapphire bracelet, handmade fine silver and orange padparadscha sapphire bracelet-OOAK Summer Court by envydesignsjewelry   

235.00 USD

The sun is on full display in this sunny citrine and orange sapphire bracelet. I created the sun link from recycled fine silver, and added a lab created orange sapphire. To compliment the link I wrapped step faceted citrine gemstones and orange sapphire briolettes together forming a hand linked chain of gems. There is a single citrine drop right at the clasp as well.
The link has a stippled texture on the back side and it measures 37mm x 14mm. Complete with a sterling silver toggle clasp that is 17mm around.
I gave all of the silver an antique patina and buffed it back up.
This is an 8 inch bracelet, but it fits like a sightly loose 7 inches because of the thickness of the citrine gems.
Can be made slightly longer or shorter for no charge. Please send a convo first, thank you!

          Mint leaf earrings, handmade eco friendly fine silver leaves with Kyanite and vesuvianite-OOAK envy designs original by envydesignsjewelry   

147.00 USD

A new color for my signature gemstone topped leaves. These handmade fine silver mint leaves are topped with gem quality deep blue kyanite and accounted with carved vesuvianite leaves. These are one of my most popular designs, this time with mint leaves.
I make the leaves by painting silver paste to the back side of the real leaves, sometimes more than 15 layers. It is a very zen like activity if time consuming. After they are done, they are fired in a kiln.

I gave the finished leaves and wrapping wire as well as the sterling silver lever back ear wires an antique patina. All the silver was then buffed up to a high shine.

These earrings are 51.5mm x 16mm. Just a hair over 2 inches long.

If you would like these leaves with another gemstone, just shoot me convo and we can discuss options, and they will be made to order.

The powerful active ingredient in Pure Quosa is colloidal silver and is known to be anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial for odor neutralizing. Many of the essential oils and plant hydrosols have anti-bacterial properties as well. Pure silver (.999%) from a silver bar or wire is transferred into the water and suspended. These tiny particles are then permanently suspended with an electrical charge keeping the silver from bunching in clumps. Brownian motion is known as the random motion of particles that are suspended in a fluid and resulting from the fast-moving atoms which are not colliding. These tiny particles are always moving in the spinning water and suspended indefinitely because of the positive electrical charge. In simple terms, colloidal silver near a pathogen, virus, fungi, or bacteria starves the oxygen. These tiny particles are then metabolism enzyme of air. Silver suffocates the pathogen, and it dies. Therefore, it is an alternative to antibiotics that cause an imbalance in the gut, causing other health issues to flare up. 

Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, and hydroflorates, are products from steam distilling plant materials for separating the plant's oils. The essential oil rises through a condenser, and the nutrient-rich steam/water is left behind. Hydrosols offer the same benefits of the plant in a gentler strength.

Personally, I loved these sprays. I felt they were a nice way to get clean when out of the house. I think these are much better than regular hand sanitizers. These can be used all over the body and make you feel better and smell better. You can use these when you cannot get to a shower. The sprays would be great for camping, after a long day of cycling, running, etc. And the best thing is, they really do get rid of body odor. These are not antiperspirant sprays, but deodorant sprays. I love the fact that physics is used here. The colloidal silver is suspended in the solution. Very cool. I think you would enjoy these sprays as much as I do. The scents are wonderful and so are the sprays.

          The ridge effect and three-particle correlations   
Pseudorapidity and azimuthal three-particle correlations are studied based on a correlated-cluster picture of multiparticle production. As already obtained for two-particle correlations in a previous work, where an explanation of the near-side ridge in proton-proton and heavy-ion collisions is provided, here we conclude again that azimuthal cluster correlations are definitely required to explain three-particle correlations in the ridge effect.
          Density response and collective modes of semi-holographic non-Fermi liquids   
Semi-holographic models of non-Fermi liquids have been shown to have generically stable generalised quasi-particles on the Fermi surface. Although these excitations are broad and exhibit particle-hole asymmetry, they were argued to be stable from interactions at the Fermi surface. In this work, we use this observation to compute the density response and collective behaviour in these systems. Compared to the Fermi liquid case, we find that the boundaries of the particle-hole continuum are blurred by incoherent contributions. However, there is a region inside this continuum, that we call inner core, within which salient features of the Fermi liquid case are preserved. A particularly striking prediction of our work is that these systems support a plasmonic collective excitation which is well-defined at large momenta, has an approximately linear dispersion relation and is located in the low-energy tail of the particle-hole continuum. Furthermore, the dynamic screening potential shows deep attractive regions as a function of the distance at higher frequencies which might lead to long-lived pair formation depending on the behaviour of the pair susceptibility. We also find that Friedel oscillations are present in these systems but are highly suppressed.
          Resolving Combinatorial Ambiguities in Dilepton $t\bar t$ Event Topologies with Constrained $M_2$ Variables   
We advocate the use of on-shell constrained $M_2$ variables in order to mitigate the combinatorial problem in SUSY-like events with two invisible particles at the LHC. We show that in comparison to other approaches in the literature, the constrained $M_2$ variables provide superior ansatze for the unmeasured invisible momenta and therefore can be usefully applied to discriminate combinatorial ambiguities. We illustrate our procedure with the example of dilepton $t\bar{t}$ events. We critically review the existing methods based on the Cambridge $M_{T2}$ variable and MAOS-reconstruction of invisible momenta, and show that their algorithm can be simplified without loss of sensitivity, due to a perfect correlation between events with complex solutions for the invisible momenta and events exhibiting a kinematic endpoint violation. Then we demonstrate that the efficiency for selecting the correct partition is further improved by utilizing the $M_2$ variables instead. Finally, we also consider the general case when the underlying mass spectrum is unknown, and no kinematic endpoint information is available.
          Pollution in the Himalayas: Time to call the sweep?   
Print section Issue:&nbsp; How to cut the deficit Fly Title:&nbsp; Pollution in the Himalayas Location:&nbsp; Kathmandu Main image:&nbsp; Could do with a clean Could do with a clean THE Himalayas and the adjacent Tibetan plateau are sometimes referred to as the Earth&#39;s third pole, because of the amount of ice they host. They are also known as Asia&#39;s water tower. Their glaciers feed the continent&#39;s largest rivers—and those, in turn, sustain some 1.5 billion people. Many studies suggest, though, that the Himalayan glaciers have been shrinking over the past few decades. This has usually been attributed to rising air temperatures, but climate researchers have now come to realise that tiny airborne particles of soot and dust are also to blame. Being dark, they absorb sunlight. And that warms their surroundings. Near cities, and in regions like South-East Asia, where people are clearing vegetation by burning it, soot is expected. But as Angela Marinoni of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate in Bologna explained to an audience at the 2nd Third Pole Environment Workshop in Kathmandu on October ...

          Yeast lysates carrying the nucleoprotein from measles virus vaccine as a novel subunit vaccine platform to deliver Plasmodium circumsporozoite antigen.   

Yeast lysates carrying the nucleoprotein from measles virus vaccine as a novel subunit vaccine platform to deliver Plasmodium circumsporozoite antigen.

Malar J. 2017 Jun 29;16(1):259

Authors: Jacob D, Ruffie C, Combredet C, Formaglio P, Amino R, Ménard R, Tangy F, Sala M

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Yeast cells represent an established bioreactor to produce recombinant proteins for subunit vaccine development. In addition, delivery of vaccine antigens directly within heat-inactivated yeast cells is attractive due to the adjuvancy provided by the yeast cell. In this study, Pichia pastoris yeast lysates carrying the nucleoprotein (N) from the measles vaccine virus were evaluated as a novel subunit vaccine platform to deliver the circumsporozoite surface antigen (CS) of Plasmodium. When expressed in Pichia pastoris yeast, the N protein auto-assembles into highly multimeric ribonucleoparticles (RNPs). The CS antigen from Plasmodium berghei (PbCS) was expressed in Pichia pastoris yeast in fusion with N, generating recombinant PbCS-carrying RNPs in the cytoplasm of yeast cells.
RESULTS: When evaluated in mice after 3-5 weekly subcutaneous injections, yeast lysates containing N-PbCS RNPs elicited strong anti-PbCS humoral responses, which were PbCS-dose dependent and reached a plateau by the pre-challenge time point. Protective efficacy of yeast lysates was dose-dependent, although anti-PbCS antibody titers were not predictive of protection. Multimerization of PbCS on RNPs was essential for providing benefit against infection, as immunization with monomeric PbCS delivered in yeast lysates was not protective. Three weekly injections with N-PbCS yeast lysates in combination with alum adjuvant produced sterile protection in two out of six mice, and significantly reduced parasitaemia in the other individuals from the same group. This parasitaemia decrease was of the same extent as in mice immunized with non-adjuvanted N-PbCS yeast lysates, providing evidence that the yeast lysate formulation did not require accessory adjuvants for eliciting efficient parasitaemia reduction.
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that yeast lysates are an attractive auto-adjuvant and efficient platform for delivering multimeric PbCS on measles N-based RNPs. By combining yeast lysates that carry RNPs with a large panel of Plasmodium antigens, this technology could be applied to developing a multivalent vaccine against malaria.

          [Project Peril] Particle Systems/Ability Effects, Procedural Dungeon Generation   
This week I implemented a system to spawn and display particle systems which convey abilities, fixed a variety of bugs in the procedural dungeon generator, and refactored old code + optimized a few things here and there to maintain smooth performance. With dungeon generation in a good state I was able to begin writing the logic that handles placement of dungeon assets (walls, gates, textures, doodads, chests, monsters, etc). Overall Project Peril is making excellent progress. I expect to have some sort of playable demo by the end of 2017. Maybe sooner if I bust ass. Programming is getting a a bit stale as of late, I might be switching my workflow to animation and effects for a few days. It never hurts to have more eye candy.
          Search for heavy Majorana neutrinos in Run II and feasibility study of a track-trigger for Phase 2 with the CMS detector at the LHC   
This thesis intends to present the salient anspects of the research work carried forward in collaboration with the CMS experiment group, during my PhD. The LHC accelerator and CMS detector main features are illustrated in the first chapter. The second chapter regards the CMS tracker subdetector status, performances, and future perspectives. The crucial role of the tracker in the HL(High Luminosity)-LHC era, starting from 2020, is here introduced. Once clarified the technological context and the principles of work of the machines, where the proton collisions take place, and thanks to which the particles can be revealed, a specific data anlysis of the 2015 data collected by CMS will be shown. First, the current state of the searches of new physics, focusing on heavy neutrinos and leptoquarks, is illustrated in chapter 3, where the basis for a new search are provided. An original model is proposed (chapter 4), that leads a new experimental analysis, whose strategy and results are examined in chapter 5. This is a search for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) in the final state with two same-flavour leptons (electrons or muons) and two quarks. The analysis is performed using proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV, recorded by the CMS experiment, at the CERN LHC. The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb−1; the results are interpreted in the framework of a recently proposed model, in which a heavy Majorana neutrino stems from a composite scenario. The CMS collaboration is preparing the field to extend these searches in the future, at higher luminosity conditions. The HL LHC will require a totally different trigger paradigm, with the inclusion of the tracker at Level-1. After introducing the general needs and upgrade plans towards this new phase (chapter 6), a specific track-trigger proposal is formulated, based on the PCA statistical method. The software simulation and the hardware prototype of this innovative system will be discussed in chapter 7.

What do you do when you can't trump the biggest bogeyman ever invented in catastrophic anthropogenic global warming and the dumb deplorables don't seem to be alarmed enough or the evidence is wearing a bit thin and not cutting through? We even had a speculative post on that as to what would be the next big thing for the doomsayers and a number of possibilities were postulated. Well it seems Friends of the Earth have hit upon the obvious. You go to the other end of the spectrum and start banging on about the microscopic doom facing us all along with the babies and fluffy kittens- http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/parenting/babies/potentially-dangerous-nanoparticles-found-in-australian-baby-formula/news-story/8cdf31244446a02d95c35b3ee5f27671 They have form- http://www.foe.org.au/whats-story-nanoparticles-sunscreen even though when you read between the lines- "Some industry spokespeople have argued there are nanoparticles in everything and that our body does appear to have defences to deal with these. It's true that any finely ground powder will have a small tail end of nanoparticles. However, it can't be assumed that because our body has the defences to deal with occasional nanoparticles that it can deal with products that are entirely comprised of nanoparticles." Just as it can't be assumed that because a giant asteroid didn't hit us last week it won't tomorrow so naturally the precautionary principle applies as usual. Welcome to nano-doom. Oh and send more grants naturally.

          Maltodextrin   

Maltodextrin is an oligosaccharide composed by a maximum of seventeen chains of dextrose molecules, linked with alpha-glycosidic bonds. Maltodextrin can be chemically extracted by wheat or corn, obtaining starch. In particular,  food supplements proceeds from corn starch can be consumed also by gluten intolerant subjects. Maltodextrin is classified by Dextrose Equivalent Values: this number represents the measure of the hydrolysis degree used to extract it from starches, and depends on the length of chains which compose a single molecule of maltodextrin. D.E. can vary from four to thirty-nine. The maximum value represents a very short molecule, so it is more easily digestible and sweet. Maltodextrin normally used by food industries or by athletes has a D.E. from three to twenty, because a higher value is called glucose syrup.

matlodxtrin food supplementsMaltodextrin is used as food additive in many commercial aliments and beverages. In fact it is a valid thickening, and it is water-soluble, easily digestible, colorless and almost tasteless. It is used especially in dressings and toppings, sauces and oatmeal. Maltodextrin is also a valid filler for foods and beverages, so it consents to increase the amount of product, without altering its characteristic and properties. An example consists in its use by many brewers, in order to make beer heavier to the taste. Moreover many pharmaceutical companies use maltodextrin as an additive to make pills.

For these aspects maltodextrin is largely used by athletes, because it can be easily converted in energy for the body during intense exercise. This carbohydrate is moreover more digestible than the common sugar, sucrose, so it is perfect especially for endurance exercises or bodybuilding. Athletes use maltodextrin with a D.E. value from twenty to twenty-four, to obtain energy in right time, not too early and nor too slowly.

Maltodextrin benefits

Maltodextrin is largely used by athletes, because it provides quickly the right amount of energy during the exercise. Differently from other carbohydrates, maltodextrin can be more easily digested, so it doesn't slow down the body. The high glycemic index helps to provide a constant level of energy in time, without creating spikes of drops of glycemia. It has also the characteristic to be not too sweet, as other additives used to make sports supplements, so it doesn't leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Maltodextrin and foods

Maltodextrin is used by many food industries as an additive, to thicken and fill different kinds of foods or beverages, as sauces, dressings, ice cream, sweet drinks or beer. It is obtained enzymatically from the hydrolysis of starch-based foods, as potatoes, corn, rice, wheat or tapioca.

matodextrin food supplements - sport supplements for athletes

Maltodextrin in sports supplements

Following your workout, your body need high glycemic index carbs to quicly restore blood glucose levels that may be dropping from a hard exercise session, and promote an anabolic (growth) state within muscle proteins.

If you just take in a simple carb like dextrose though, you actually reduce the body’s ability to transport these carbs swiftly into the body due to a chemical state known as osmolarity. Osmolarity refers the amount of particles in a solution, and monosaccharides will induce a high osmolarity state, while polysaccharides induce a lower one.

If a beverage has a high osmolarity (fe: dextrose) , it will slow the emptying from the stomach into the intestine and thus, limit absorption. Drinks that only contain dextrose have high osmolarity, while maltodextrin has a lower osmolarity.

Maltodextrin properties

Maltodextrin is a particular carbohydrate, with a lot of interesting properties, which make it ideal for many uses. In fact this molecule is used by food industries as soluble additive for different kinds of food, but it is also the ingredient of many sports supplements. It is almost tasteless, just a little bit sweet, colorless, easily digestible. It is composed by many chains of carbohydrates, but these are linked in quickly decomposable bonds. For this reason the molecule of maltodextrin can be immediately digested and assimilated by the gastrointestinal tract.

Maltodextrin is also gluten-free, in particular the form obtained by corn or potatoes, but even the one extracted from wheat is now processed in a specific way, so that gluten can be entirely removed. For this reason it can be also used by people who suffer from Celiac disease.

Maltodextrin is considered almost devoid of a nutritional value, because it has only four calories per gram, and it has a minimum quantity of proteins or vitamins.

Maltodextrin sides

Maltodextrin has a high or low glycemic index, but it can be more quickly digested and absorbed by the body. It dipends from the degreee of polymerization. In fact maltodextrin, as other kinds of sugar, stimulates the storage of fats into the body, so people who consume it regularly without performing adequate exercise, will tend to gain weight. If it is consumed in excess, it can cause gastrointestinal problems, as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, headache, nausea, weakness.

If you went to the doctor with the suspicion that your leg was broken, the doctor probably wouldn't go digging around trying to look at the bone itself—if they did, you'd probably be on the phone with another doctor the moment they picked up a scalpel. Instead, they'd use X-rays to produce a visual representation of the bone. It turns out that archaeologists have a similar tool they can use to look inside delicate structures without disturbing them: an elementary particle known as the muon.

          Jupiter seen by Juno spacecraft in Near Infrared   
Jupiter seen by Juno spacecraft in Near Infrared

This composite infrared image of Jupiter reveals haze particles over a range of altitudes, as seen in reflected sunlight. It was taken using the Gemini North Telescope's Near-InfraRed Imager (NIRI) on May 18, 2017, in collaboration with the investigation of Jupiter by NASA's Juno mission. Juno completed its sixth close approach to Jupiter a few hours after this observation.

The multiple filters corresponding to each color used in the image cover wavelengths between 1.69 microns and 2.275 microns. Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS) appears as the brightest (white) region at these wavelengths, which are primarily sensitive to high-altitude clouds and hazes near and above the top of Jupiter's convective region.

The GRS is one of the highest-altitude features in Jupiter's atmosphere. Narrow spiral streaks that appear to lead into it or out of it from surrounding regions probably represent atmospheric features being stretched by the intense winds within the GRS, such as the hook-like structure on its western edge (left side). Some are being swept off its eastern edge (right side) and into an extensive wave-like flow pattern, and there is even a trace of flow from its northern edge.

Other features near the GRS include the dark block and dark oval to the south and the north of the eastern flow pattern, respectively, indicating a lower density of cloud and haze particles in those locations. Both are long-lived cyclonic circulations, rotating clockwise -- in the opposite direction as the counterclockwise rotation of the GRS.

A prominent wave pattern is evident north of the equator, along with two bright ovals, which are anticyclones that appeared in January 2017. Both the wave pattern and the ovals may be associated with an impressive upsurge in stormy activity that has been observed in these latitudes this year. Another bright anticyclonic oval is seen further north. The Juno spacecraft may pass over these ovals, as well as the Great Red Spot, during its close approach to Jupiter on July 10, 2017, Pacific Time (July 11, Universal Time).

High hazes are evident over both polar regions with much spatial structure not previously been seen quite so clearly in ground-based images

The filters used for observations combined into this image admit infrared light centered on the following infrared wavelengths (and presented here in these colors): 1.69 microns (blue), 2.045 microns (cyan), 2.169 microns (green), 2.124 microns (yellow), and 2.275 microns (red).

          Higgs Boson Magnetism Inauguration (06)   
My intention to complete Higgs boson magnetism inauguration frame is strong, and I know that I have an unlimited number of words to add to this blog. Higgs boson magnetism inauguration frame is not a work of imagination but it's idea is based on true scientific researches, its also based on achieved theories such as the theory of everything, the theory of the end of life, Higgs boson theory, True Bose Einstein Condensate system (BECs) theory, and the discovery of the Rugosa corals as the main and the important stone in the building of all these theories. I think that many other theories should be included to this frame such as the theory of relativity, the string theory, my theory of the dot theory, the theory of particles genesis explained in "Higgs Boson Manifesto" post and many other theories in the stream of theories in particle physics. I think that the integration of theories inside Higgs boso magnetism inauguration is a work of mathematicians and physicians and their participation in the building of this frame is an obliged duty towards humanity.

My theory of everything is very consistent because its based on Higgs boson in it's solid state full of it's all components, and also its ready to execute all tasks from it's excitement, swallowing to particles and decaying them; these tasks are the most important processes in any experiment in particles physics. The theory of everything should fulfill Higgs boson magnetism inauguration frame because its including all human beings knowledge in all kind of sciences.

Higgs boson magnetism inauguration is a proposed project by myself to all scientific communities; and this project is including all kind of sciences to deal with Higgs boson magnetism influence on everything, and the first step is to recognize it's existence and it's strengthening day after day by particle physics scientists then other scientists will be able to link all changes in life to Higgs boson magnetism consequences. 

Education at all it's levels should consider Higgs boson magnetism inauguration frame in  order to catch missed scientific information otherwise the cleavage between whats real in all natural phenomena and all aspect of life and human beings knowledge will be so huge. I think that the headline of education inside Higgs boson magnetism inauguration frame should be considered and given priority because the matter is about the revolutionizing of human beings future knowledge.

Acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) is a hydroacoustic current meter similar to a sonar, attempting to measure water current velocities over a depth range using the Doppler effect of sound waves scattered back from particles within the water column. The term ADCP is a generic term for all acoustic current profilers although the abbreviation originates from an instrument series introduced by RD Instruments in the 1980s. The working frequencies range of ADCPs range from 38 kHz to several Megahertz.
          Norwex VS Chemicals   
I recently had the privlege of discovering Norwex through Jeni Schultz a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant.  It was not until I actually started researching Norwex products that I realized just how harmful everyday household cleaning products and popular household names that we use everyday are.  Just how ignorant have I been?

I was sent three Norwex Products to personally review from Jeni Schultz.  The first was the Basic Package from Norwex Collections.  This included two microfiber cloths, one "enviro cloth" and one "window cloth".  With these two clothes you can clean almost any surface in the home.  I also received a set of Dryer Balls.  Below I am posting some interesting facts that will have you wanting to become more green and then a detailed description of each item and my personal experience with the products follows.

-In the last 50 years over 80,000 chemicals have been created for household cleaning

-Indoor Air Pollution is one of the top five highest ranking environmental health problems in America.

Click Here to Read the Environmental Protection Agency facts on Indoor Air Quality

-Click Here to Read the Consumer Product Safety Commission facts on Indoor Air Quality

-Indoor Air Quality can be worse than outside air

-Norwex Microfiber allows you to eleminate the chemicals, saves you time, and money

-The average household spends an estimated $700 on household chemicals a year

My Personal Opinion/Review

Initially I thought, gosh, these products are expensive.  After tons of research and resources available at our fingertips online, I realized how ignorant I have been and educated myself on indoor air pollution and just how harmful all those household cleaners really can be.  Also, I realized why keep spending money on something that keeps running out when I can be using something that is environmentally friendly "green" and reusable.  Norwex is changing my life!

Enviro Cloth

The Enviro Cloth can be used dry to dust without using any chemicals.  The dirt/dust just clings to the cloth without stirring up all those particles in the air that always get in my eyes and contacts when I use that dang swiffer wand I have (I had) :/  The Enviro Cloth can be used wet with water or a environmentally friendly Norwex product to clean dirt/grime off of counters, cabinets, stove tops, or how about those dusty fan blades?  Again, the dirt just clings to this cloth, then you simply rinse the dirt off to reuse or throw it in the wash and use it later.

Window Cloth

The Window Cloth can be used in a variety of ways as well.  I was confused because it is labeled polish!  Well I suppose it does polish since it cleans windows with water!  You heard me right.  We detailed the cars and boat and used this handy cloth to clean the windows!  This product is advertised to clean mirrors, widows, jewelry, and shiny surfaces!  So we put this to work on our brushed nickel chandelier, ceiling light covers, vanity lights in the bathroom, and sink fixtures with water.

Now as far as using a chemical to get rid of bacteria that is safe and environmentally friendly, try Hydrogen Peroxide!

Norwex Dryer Balls

I know I have tried other "as seen on TV" dryer balls and quiet honestly I felt like I got ripped off. I was anxious to get the chance to try a product that seems to be tried and proven.  In my quest to become a more "green" mom I have decided to change my laundry habits dramatically, starting with cutting out the use of fabric softener completely if at all possible.  These Norwex Dryer Balls work wonderfully.  Honestly I just use one at a time, I don't know if I am suppose to use two, but the benefits are obvious from one.  First, my clothes don't have static cling, they still smell clean, and the clothes were pretty much wrinkle free.  Sometimes the kids forget softener and that leads to hard to get out wrinkles (aka wrinkles that have to be starched out).  They think putting these dryer balls in is so fun, so these dryer balls are a hit in my house, silly kids!  Everyone in my family will be getting these next Christmas!!!

Thank you Jeni for this awesome opportunity!

          NPR continues to find hundreds of cases of advanced black lung

Howard Berkes | NPR

NPR's ongoing investigation of the advanced stage of the fatal lung disease that afflicts coal miners has identified an additional 1,000 cases in Appalachia.

That brings the NPR count of progressive massive fibrosis, the most serious stage of the disease known as black lung, to nearly 2,000 cases in the region, all of which were diagnosed since 2010.

In the same period, researchers at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reported just 99 cases nationwide. NPR's count is now 20 times what had been considered the official tally of the advanced stage of disease.

NPR contacted black lung clinics, physicians and attorneys across the country. Seventeen in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia and Kentucky provided data. Their diagnoses of advanced disease have not been independently confirmed. But the actual occurrence of disease is likely higher because many clinics across the region and the country were unable to provide data and others didn't have data for the full 2010-16 time period.

NIOSH is surveying clinics and has also found astonishing rates of disease, according to epidemiologist Scott Laney.

"There's a great deal of evidence ... that definitively demonstrates that we are in the midst of an epidemic of black lung disease in central Appalachia," Laney said Thursday in Morgantown, W.Va., during a presentation before a National Academy of Sciences committee investigating efforts to control the coal mine dust that causes the disease.

Laney and a team of NIOSH epidemiologists have reviewed medical records and diagnostic X-rays at four clinics in Kentucky and Virginia and are continuing to approach clinics so that they can get an accurate count of PMF cases.

As part of that effort, Laney addressed an auditorium filled with coal miners, medical students, physicians and attorneys in Pikeville, Ky., in April.

"If we come to your town, there's generally something bad going on there," Laney told the crowd. "We're at the epicenter of one of the largest industrial medicine disasters that the United States has ever seen."

So far, Laney's team has published one study focused on a single clinic in Kentucky, reporting 60 cases there of advanced black lung.

Laney declined to reveal specific findings at other clinics until a new study is published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are also conducting an independent study of the spike in advanced black lung.

Black lung results from exposure to coal dust. Progressive massive fibrosis is an especially aggressive form of the disease blamed on inhalation of silica dust, which results from the cutting of quartz rock and coal together.

Laney's grim assessment Thursday at the NAS committee meeting was preceded by a much sunnier presentation from a federal regulator about the efforts to control coal mine dust.

Gregory Meikle of the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration said 99 percent of mining companies were complying with new and tougher dust exposure limits and more rigorous requirements for detecting dangerous levels of dust.

"The compliance rates are very impressive," Meikle said. "It's meeting the objective."

Meikle also acknowledged that black lung can take a decade or more to be detected or show symptoms.

"Have we eliminated the disease?" he asked. "That's a question and we won't know. But if we wait until we do know, it'll be too late to do anything about it." So we continue to look and analyze and work."

But Laney said the mining industry's compliance record has been high for at least a decade. There wouldn't be as much advanced black lung disease now, he suggested, if the compliance rates accurately reflected actual exposure to the coal and silica dust that cause advanced disease.

"I don't think there's any reason for me to believe that there's any exposure measurements on the books that can account for that level of impairment," Laney said.

A spokesman for the National Mining Association, the industry's main lobbying group, said there was no one available to comment.

Clinics across Appalachia report a growing flow of sick miners. In just three clinics in Virginia in the last four months, 84 miners were diagnosed with advanced black lung.

          New feedback system could allow greater control over fusion plasma   

Like a potter shaping clay as it spins on a wheel, physicists use magnetic fields and powerful particle beams to control and shape the plasma as it twists and turns through a fusion device. Now a physicist has created a new system that will let scientists control the energy and rotation of plasma in real time in a doughnut-shaped machine known as a tokamak.

“When designing fusion machines, it’s becoming more and more important to use control systems and modeling techniques taken from the world of aeronautics engineering,” said Imène Goumiri, the scientist who led the work. “What’s new is that these tools have now been applied to plasma physics problems; that’s what makes this research unique.” Goumiri was a Princeton University doctoral graduate student who conducted research at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and now is a physicist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Goumiri’s system, known as a feedback controller, includes sensors within the tokamak that are linked to a computer algorithm that interprets the data the sensors gather. The algorithm actuates six beams of neutral particles that heat and spin the plasma inside the tokamak and actuates six rectangular magnetic coils situated around the machine’s exterior. “This is the first time these two actuators have been used together to control the plasma rotation profile,” said Steven Sabbagh, a senior research scientist and adjunct professor of applied physics at Columbia University who has collaborated with PPPL for 27 years and was one of the paper’s co-authors.

By controlling rotation, physicists can prevent instabilities from degrading the magnetic field and allowing the plasma to dissipate, shutting down the fusion reactions.

Researchers designed the algorithm for the National Spherical Torus Experiment-Upgrade (NSTX-U), which has an enhanced neutral beam system that affects the plasma rotation by colliding with the plasma’s charged particles and transferring momentum. The system has two emitters with three neutral beam sources each. One emitter targets the core of the plasma while the other targets the edge to exert leverage over the plasma as a whole. A flexible magnet system allows physicists to further control the plasma rotation distribution. In general, the algorithm uses the magnetic coils and the neutral beam emitters in different combinations to change how different regions of the plasma rotate.

The algorithm also balances the effects of the magnets and the neutral beams to make sure the overall plasma doesn’t lurch roughly from one speed to another. The aim is to achieve a particular amount of plasma heat, or stored energy, along with the desired plasma rotation — an innovation that an earlier version of the algorithm lacked.

Goumiri and the team tested the new controller algorithm on a simulated tokamak created by the computer code TRANSP, a PPPL-designed program used in magnetic fusion research around the world. The test showed that the algorithm could successfully modify both the plasma’s rotation profile and stored energy in ways that would increase the plasma’s stability.

In the future, Goumiri hopes to test her controller algorithm on NSTX-U. Once in operation, the lessons physicists learn from using the algorithm could influence the design of future fusion reactors. Such reactors will have more than one algorithm to control plasma rotation, electric current, and the shape of the plasma. Future research will need to focus on how all the controllers operate together and to design a global system that will allow the controllers to operate harmoniously.

This research was published in February 2017 in the online version of Physics of Plasmas and was funded by the DOE’s Office of Science (Fusion Energy Sciences).

PPPL, on Princeton University’s Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro, N.J., is devoted to creating new knowledge about the physics of plasmas — ultra-hot, charged gases — and to developing practical solutions for the creation of fusion energy.

          PPPL physicist uncovers clues to mechanism behind magnetic reconnection   

Physicist Fatima Ebrahimi at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has published a paper showing that magnetic reconnection — the process in which magnetic field lines snap together and release energy — can be triggered by motion in nearby magnetic fields. By running computer simulations, Ebrahimi gathered evidence indicating that the wiggling of atomic particles and magnetic fields within electrically charged gas known as plasma can spark the onset of reconnection, a process that, when it occurs on the sun, can spew plasma into space.

That plasma can eventually interact with magnetic fields surrounding the Earth, endangering communications networks and power systems. In fusion facilities, reconnection can help start and confine the plasma that fuels fusion reactions. This research was funded by the DOE’s Office of Science (Fusion Energy Sciences) and was published in the December issue of Physics of Plasmas.

Using a computer code developed by researchers at universities and fusion labs, Ebrahimi simulated plasma circulating within a vessel shaped like a doughnut. The vessel mimicked the doughnut shape of fusion facilities called tokamaks. The simulated facility had an opening in its floor for physicists to inject magnetic field lines that would balloon in the tokamak’s interior and initiate the fusion process.

Reconnection occurred in the following way. The field lines forming the balloon created an electric current that produced three-dimensional wiggles and wobbles that pushed the open end of the balloon until it closed. At that point, magnetic reconnection occurred and turned the magnetic balloon into a magnetic bubble called a plasmoid that carries electric current.

Ebrahimi is now expanding that research. She is currently looking into how to harness the current to create and confine a fusion plasma without using a large central magnet called a solenoid. 

Different conditions can set off the reconnection process. “If the strength of the field lines associated with the original magnetic balloon is not enough on its own to instigate reconnection,” Ebrahimi said, “the secondary magnetic wiggles can amplify the magnetic fields at the reconnection site, triggering the event.” She is also investigating the amplification of magnetic fields through these secondary three-dimensional magnetic and fluid wiggles known as the dynamo effect.

These findings on the effect of magnetic fields can have a broad impact. “The analysis and the modeling can help us better understand how the reconnection process that is triggered by magnetic perturbations in plasmas can lead to the detachment of magnetic loops on the surface of the sun, or efficient startup for fusion plasmas,” Ebrahimi said.

          PPPL physicists make first-ever direct observation of collisional plasmoid instability during magnetic reconnection in a laboratory setting   

Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have for the first time directly observed a phenomenon that had previously only been hypothesized to exist. The phenomenon, plasmoid instabilities that occur during collisional magnetic reconnection, had until this year only been observed indirectly using remote-sensing technology. In a paper published in the August 2016 issue of Physical Review Letters, PPPL physicists report that they created the phenomenon in a laboratory setting where they could measure it directly and confirm its existence on the electron scale, which describes the range of motion of electrons and how quickly they move. This research was funded both by the DOE’s Office of Science and NASA’s Heliophysics Division.

Plasmoid instabilities create magnetic bubbles within plasma, superhot gas whose atoms have separated into electrons and atomic nuclei. The magnetic bubbles then cause fast magnetic reconnection, when a plasma’s magnetic field lines break apart and join together again, releasing large amounts of energy. Before now, physicists at NASA and other institutions had only been able to directly confirm the existence of these instabilities in collisionless plasmas, like those surrounding Earth in the upper atmosphere, in which the plasma particles do not collide often.

Scientists had not been able to confirm the existence of plasmoid instabilities in collisional plasmas, in which the particles frequently collide, because such plasmas occur in outer space, far from Earth. Collisional plasmas like those on the surfaces of stars are so far away that scientists have difficulty measuring them directly. But physicists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and elsewhere had predicted their existence years ago.

Scientists have obtained, however, indirect evidence of plasmoid instabilities in outer space. Using telescopes and spectroscopes, as well as fusion facilities like PPPL’s former flagship device known as the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX), which has since been upgraded, scientists took photographs and analyzed light that hinted at the existence of the instabilities. But without direct measurements, they were unable to confirm that the instabilities existed.

“These findings are significant because data gathered in past magnetic reconnection experiments involving collisionless plasma does not apply to the large, collisional plasmas found throughout space,” said Hantao Ji, a professor at Princeton University’s Department of Astrophysical Sciences, distinguished fellow at PPPL, and co-author of the paper. “Scientists have long had difficulty studying these plasmas because it’s hard to create the necessary conditions on Earth, and we can’t just stick probes directly into stars. Now we have a glimpse into their workings.”

During the research, lead author and graduate student Jonathan Jara-Almonte and the team used a PPPL device known as the Magnetic Reconnection Experiment (MRX). Unlike in past experiments, Jara-Almonte and his team used a plasma made out of argon atoms, rather than hydrogen, deuterium or helium. Using argon, they found, allowed them to produce conditions for collisional reconnection within the plasma more easily.

Along with confirming the existence of plasmoid instabilities in collisional plasmas undergoing reconnection, the research showed that instabilities can arise even when a plasma does not conduct electricity well, a condition known as having a low Lundquist number that scientists thought would hinder plasmoid development. This was a surprising finding, since scientists have long predicted that plasmoids would form only when a plasma conducts electricity well.

“The bigger picture is that these results raise some questions about plasmoid instability theory that haven’t been answered yet,” said Jara-Almonte. “The results raise questions about what is really happening in other systems.”

The MRX experiment also confirmed that plasmoids speed up the rate at which reconnection occurs — the first time the effect has been observed in a collisional environment. Understanding how fast reconnection occurs is important because it can affect Earth in dramatic ways. When reconnection happens on the surface of the sun, enormous blobs of plasma shoot into space and can collide with Earth’s magnetic field, creating geomagnetic storms that threaten communication satellites and electricity grids.

PPPL, on Princeton University’s Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro, N.J., is devoted to creating new knowledge about the physics of plasmas — ultra-hot, charged gases — and to developing practical solutions for the creation of fusion energy.

Bioconjugation and stabilisation of biomolecules in biosensors.

Essays Biochem. 2016 Jun 30;60(1):59-68

Authors: Liébana S, Drago GA

Abstract
Suitable bioconjugation strategies and stabilisation of biomolecules on electrodes is essential for the development of novel and commercially viable biosensors. In the present review, the functional groups that comprise the selectable targets for practical bioconjugation methods are discussed. We focus on describing the most common immobilisation techniques used in biosensor construction, which are classified into irreversible and reversible methods. Concerning the stability of proteins, the two main types of stability may be defined as (i) storage or shelf stability, and (ii) operational stability. Both types of stability are explained, as well as the introduction of an electrophoretic technique for predicting protein-polymer interactions. In addition, solution and dry stabilisation as well as stabilisation using the covalent immobilisation of proteins are discussed including possible factors that influence stability. Finally, the integration of nanomaterials, such as magnetic particles, with protein immobilisation is discussed in relation to protein stability studies.

          Supreme Leader Submits General Policies for the Environment   

General Policies are high level strategies formulated by experts in the Expediency Council, adopted in that council and endorsed by the Supreme Leader. We were working with the Council for the past year to define the outlines and content of the major policies we need for the environment in Iran. These general policies will enable us to strengthen cross sectoral cooperation and to engage the judiciary, legislative and even armed forces to engage in implementation of environmental policies. The stategic mandate given in this directive also addresses social participation and the civil society which could be instumental for a social campaign to change current mentality and lifestyles particulaly in consumption patterns of water and energy. In addition  the emphasis on greening of the economy and supporting green technologies will give us strong incentives for investment and growth. The need to mitigate greenhouse gases and confront the detrimental effects of climate change is clearly mentioned as well.  The clear focus on environmental diplomacy is also important given the regional role with our neighbours and with the wider international community that we need to persue. The General Policies have given us a strong support in promoting the environmental agenda led by President Rouhani in the current government. These policies have also given a strong signal of committment and cooperation at the international level at the onset of COP21 negotiations on the new climate agreement. 
Iran will have an important role, as an influential and committed regional and global player, for promoting peace and environmental protection for our home, planet earth. 



Leader

Expand green economy, administer justice and raise awareness of the environment

In a letter to the heads of the three branches of government, Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, announced the general policies on the environment on the basis of the first clause in Article 110 of the Constitution. 

The following is the full text of these policies issued on November 17, 2015.

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

    Complications arising frоm coronary heart disease аrе the number оne cause of death in оur country. Atherosclerosis is thе underlying disease process. We have developed nonhuman primate (monkey) models of diet-induced coronary artery atherosclerosis (CAA). We are attempting tо define molecular mechanisms through whiсh dietary fatty acids modify plasma lipoprotein distribution and composition and thеir respective roles in CAA. Increased blood plasma concentrations of low density lipoproteins (LDL) аnd decreased concentrations оf high density lipoproteins (HDL) both contribute to increased CHD іn man and monkeys.

    Pathways regulating plasma lipoprotein concentrations аrе undеr study. In addition, increased LDL cholesteryl oleate content hаѕ bееn asѕocіatеd wіth increased CAA. Isolated, perfused primate livers hаve bеen used tо demonstrate that hepatic cholesteryl oleate secretion rate is correlated wіth LDL cholesteryl oleate enrichment and increased CAA. The enzyme іn the liver responsible for cholesteryl oleate formation and secretion haѕ bееn identified aѕ acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase 2 (ACAT2). This enzyme has bееn cloned, expressed, and regulation bу cholesterol аnd fatty acids iѕ undеr investigation. Intrahepatic metabolism оf cholesterol determines the type аnd extent оf lipoprotein particle secretion by thе liver, so we are quantifying entry and exit pathways fоr cholesterol іn the liver. To accomplish this, wе аrе examining transcriptional regulation оf thе genes controling hepatic cholesterol metabolism, partіculаrlу ACAT2 аnd cholesterol 7-a-hydroxylase, аs this regulation is influenced bу cholesterol and fatty acid type.

    Scientists tell us that the way things work at quantum level are unlike what we experience in our visible world. In macroscopic world “classical” physics of Newton et al rules the roost. Fundamental particles of the quantum realm behave in seemingly impossible ways: they can exist in two places at once, or disappear and reappear […]
               Microbots to remove harmful bacteria from water developed    
    Scientists have developed magnetic microbots with silver nanoparticles that can zoom around contaminated water and clean up disease-causing bacteria. Drinking water contaminated with pathogenic bacteria can cause serious illnesses that, in areas with spotty medical services, are potentially life-threatening without proper treatment. Water can be disinfected with chlorine or other disinfectants, but there are some hardy bacteria and other microorganisms that are hard to remove. Treating water with a combination of disinfectants or increasing their concentrations can help. However, they remain in the water, and their byproducts can be harmful to human health. In recent years, researchers have been exploring

              Comment on HitFilm 4 Pro: Easier, Faster, and Sexier Than After Effects by Amiya Bindhani   
    Surely Hitfilm will win. This is not Hollywood workstation, this is your personal room or home. Requirement is for Youtube Video, Promo, Music Video or small freelance vfx works. Not for Hollywood blockbuster movie to release worldwide of a budget starting 100million USD. My experience Hitfilm vs After Effects: Compare the Software size. When AE is more than 2GB, Hitfilm is only 500mb. AE opens after 30-40 sec while Hitfilm within 10-20 sec AE cache files (don't ask) watch OS drive C: drive getting red compare to Hitfilm. AE is not the solution, you will need support of C4D, Video Copilot Plugins, Red Giant, etc.. and obviously Premiere (it's brother) while Hitfilm is the only one solution to all. So compare the price. Hitfilm is offering 3D model import even rigged model, fbx and abc animation import, direct material editor, shader (ambient occlusion) editor, light shadow, camera, 3d-2d particles and simulation etccc... with element 3d rendering quality and 10X faster rendering time. What more you want? All the most and only most important video effects offering by hitfilm, not the complete ocean to spend the valuable time in only searching and experimenting the effects. Export time of video in Hitfilm than AE is 5-10X faster. We have seen the excellent progress of Hitfilm in vfx from its ver.1 to ver.5xx within 6 years. The next hope update of Hitfilm is atleast PBR, crowd simulation, 3d models with breakable bullet physics, fur, foliage (speed tree) paint, fluid simulation and volumetric particles. Then who could compete with Hitfilm. As a vfx artist, I would refer Hitfilm for quick, quality and low budget works but AE for hight budget works and if you have extreme VFX knowledge and a team of large amount of vfx artists specialized in different sectors and very high-end PCs.

              Does this colander seem practical to anyone?   
    I've always found the short TV ad for this in-sink colander (see picture), I believe made by Kohler, shown before some episodes of America's Test Kitchen, to be rather awkward. It shows a woman pushing spinach leaves around the bottom of the colander under running water, in an attempt to clean them. That's not generally how I wash my greens. I prefer a light round colander that I can toss the greens in with a few flips, tossing handfuls around under running water, rather than scraping them against the bottom of this colander which could easily bruise the leaves, as well as pick up the dirt and particles that would wind up on the bottom of this flat colander with few holes. The way it was demonstrated in the ad just seemed off to me. Did it to anyone else who saw the ad? Besides that, it just doesn't seem that practical, although it's pretty how it fits squarely in one side of the sink. Any thoughts?

    Advances in Alzheimer's Diagnosis and Therapy: The Implications of Nanotechnology.

    Trends Biotechnol. 2017 Jun 27;:

    Authors: Hajipour MJ, Santoso MR, Rezaee F, Aghaverdi H, Mahmoudi M, Perry G

    Abstract
    Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a type of dementia that causes major issues for patients' memory, thinking, and behavior. Despite efforts to advance AD diagnostic and therapeutic tools, AD remains incurable due to its complex and multifactorial nature and lack of effective diagnostics/therapeutics. Nanoparticles (NPs) have demonstrated the potential to overcome the challenges and limitations associated with traditional diagnostics/therapeutics. Nanotechnology is now offering new tools and insights to advance our understanding of AD and eventually may offer new hope to AD patients. Here, we review the key roles of nanotechnologies in the recent literature, in both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of AD, and discuss how these achievements may improve patient prognosis and quality of life.

              Гравитационные волны могут скрывать в себе следы иных измерений   

    http://jpegshare.net/images/e7/47/e7476a945c931e2e4bdfa12ec57e3caf.jpg

    Всплески гравитационных волн, порождаемые сливающимися черными дырами или пульсарами, могут содержать в себе информацию по скрытым или "свернутым" измерениям Вселенной, заявляют ученые в статье, опубликованной в Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics.

    "По сравнению с другими фундаментальными силами, такими как электромагнетизм, к примеру, гравитация очень слабо воздействует на материю. Причиной этой слабости может быть то, что она взаимодействует не только с тремя "видимыми" измерениями и временем, а гораздо большим их числом", — заявил Дэвид Эндриот (David Andriot) из Института гравитационной физики в Потсдаме (Германия).

    Сегодня у ученых нет единого мнения о том, является наша Вселенная четырехмерной или в ней гораздо больше измерений, часть из которых мы не видим по разным причинам. Существование этих измерений, как надеются физики, поможет "примирить" теорию относительности и квантовую физику и создать теорию квантовой гравитации, объясняющую, что происходит внутри черных дыр.

    К примеру, теория суперструн постулирует, что Вселенная изначально родилась десятимерной и обладала одним временным и девятью пространственными измерениями. Часть сторонников этой теории считают, что "лишние" шесть измерений схлопнулись и замкнулись сами на себя. Другие физики полагают, что наша четырехмерная Вселенная является лишь частью многомерной мультивселенной (мультиверса), а остальные шесть измерений мы не можем увидеть и изучить.

    Эндриот и его коллега Густаво Гомез (Gustavo Gomez) заявляют, что следы этих измерений, потенциальных параллельных Вселенных и мультиверса могут скрываться в том, как "эйнштейновские" волны распространяются от их источника к детекторам LIGO и другим гравитационным обсерваториям на Земле.

    Гомез и Эндриот попытались выяснить, так ли это на самом деле, просчитав, как будут выглядеть гравитационные волны в "эйнштейновской" четырехмерной и суперструнной десятимерной Вселенной и сравнив их между собой.

    Как показали эти расчеты, дополнительные измерения действительно должны влиять на поведение и структуру колебаний пространства–времени, серьезно меняя два их свойства – гравитационные волны из "многомерной" Вселенной будут обладать необычной поляризацией, а их сила в высокочастотной части спектра, превышающей тысячу герц, будет аномально высокой.

    Пока оба этих эффекта измерить затруднительно в том числе и потому, что LIGO просто не может наблюдать за столь высокочастотными колебаниями. В свою очередь, ученые не смогут измерить поляризацию гравитационных волн до ввода в строй главного "конкурента" американской обсерватории, европейского детектора VIRGO, который начнет работу в конце августа этого года, когда работа LIGO будет в очередной остановлена.

    Как отмечают исследователи, их теория может быть проверена только в конце 2018 года или в начале 2019–го, когда обе гравитационные обсерватории будут работать одновременно. Тогда, надеются Эндриот и Гомез, мы впервые сможем узнать, существуют ли другие измерения и связанные с ними параллельные миры или объединяющая их мультивселенная.

              Can I REALLY Run My Car on Water?   
    Read more about Water 4 Gas

    Many people have started looking at alternative fuels in order to cut down their expenses on gas. While electric cars have been around for some 7 years now, they are quite expensive to be of any real value to the average car buyer. Now under the cumulative effect of rising gas prices, Environmental degradation and huge emission of green house gases, huge pressure is mounting on average consumer to look at feasible alternative fuel technologies. The idea of water car has thus become quite popular often rising to cult status.

    But lets do some reality check, right away. First off, vehicles which run on 100 percent water are still in experimental stages around numerous labs in America. Truth be told, no practical solution has yet emerged from all this research. Moreover, whatever little breakthrough has been achieved in this area is way too expensive and complex to be incorporated into current vehicles.

    But don’t loose hope yet, as an alternative solution exists to this problem. Instead of thinking a 100 percent water powered car, you should think about a hybrid water powered car. The word “hybrid” suggests that water is used in conjunction with conventional petroleum based products and hence a “hybrid” is used to power the vehicle. This water hybrid technology is proven to reduce harmful environment emissions while simultaneously reducing your gas expenditure. This hybrid technology is completely workable in your current vehicle without any major modifications.

    How Does Water 4 Gas Work? Read here

    Many encouraging results are obtained from the usage of water powered cars. Several Tests have confirmed a huge savings in energy bills with the usage of hybrid fuels, for example a 250 V8 can save 50% and a Toyota can save upwards of 70%, while a ford truck can save upto 60%.
    It’s important to note here that some vehicle engines need minor adjustments for making use of water as a fuel. However, there are many vehicles in which none are required. The other obvious advantage of using hybrid vehicles is the decrease in harmful emissions to the environment. By adopting water powered technology, you will be doing your bit in reducing green house gas emissions, thereby ensuring better health for your family, community and society at large.

    Burning of fuel inside the internal combustion engine results in the movement of crank shaft and hence your car. Water enhances the quality of the combustion cycle and has numerous benefits when used in conjunction with petrol or diesel. Some of the benefits include enhancement in engine power and performance. Since Water acts as a solvent, it also removes the carbon particles deposited inside the engine. This further improves the quality of the combustion cycle. In addition to this, water also provides a cooling effect and hence the temperature inside the engine is reduced. This leads to decrease in waste heat.

    Although it may take a little while before we have a “full fledged hundred percent water running car”, a water hybrid is definitely a reality and can go a long way in saving your gas dollars while ensuring a cleaner environment for all.

              Surfactant Assisted Stabilization of Carbon Nanotubes Synthesized by a Spray Pyrolysis Method   
    Surface modification of carbon nanotubes has been an interesting issue from a composites materials point of view. A nanotubes agglomeration has to be avoided to achieve a homogeneous dispersion in a composite matrix. In this research, we report on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes using a variant of the chemical vapor deposition technique known as spray pyrolysis method. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies showed that the synthesized products had an aligned structure with low purity degree, high content of catalyst particles, and a smaller amount of amorphous carbon. A secondary method was applied, which involves an acidic treatment that dissolves contaminant particles to enhance the purity of the nanotubes. Microstructural analysis, which includes XRD and SEM, indicates an effective reduction of impurities. Dispersion of the nanotubes was assessed using different surfactants, such as sodium dodecyl-sulfate (SDS) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). Finally, Raman spectroscopy, UV-Vis, and SEM techniques confirm that better results were obtained with EDTA. For EDTA and SDS surfactants, low concentrations of 0.3 mg/mL and 0.2 mg/mL were most efficient, respectively.

              On the Correct Formulation of the Starting Point of Classical Mechanics   

    The correct scientific and critical analysis of the generally accepted foundations of classical mechanics is proposed. The methodological basis for the analysis is the unity of formal logic and of rational dialectics. The main results of the analysis are as follows: (1) the correct starting point of kinematics is formulated: the informational  definition of the concept of time; definitions of the concepts of motion, speed, and acceleration of material point in the metric system of coordinates; the principle of motion of quantum particle (photon); proof of the mathematical, physical, and formal-logical erroneousness (fallaciousness) of Lorentz transformations; (2) the correct starting point of dynamics is formulated: the definition of force as a physical property of the structure of the system of the interacting objects; (3) the correct starting point of the theory of gravitation is formulated: the condition of existence of the gravitational interaction which represents the condition of existence of the region of overlap (superposition, intersection) of the gravitational fields of the material objects; (4) the correct formulation of the law of gravitation within the framework of the system approach is given (the formulation represents the system of the proportions); (5) it is proved that the formulation of Newton’s empirical law of gravitation represents the formal-logical and dialectical errors.

              Teens take home science gold at Intel ISEF   

    Self-driving vehicles, battery alternatives and analyses of galaxy clusters claim top prizes at global high school science competition

    On the Scene

    PHOENIX — Hate driving your car when you could be a passenger? A self-driving vehicle that one day could chauffer human occupants around town brought its inventor, a 19-year-old Romanian computer scientist, the top prize — and $75,000 — this week at the world’s premier high school research competition.

    Ionut Budisteanu, a student at Liceul Tehnologic Oltchim in Ramnicu Valcea, Romania, was the big winner at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, or Intel ISEF. He was one of three young researchers who each walked away with prizes worth more than $50,000.

    Society for Science & the Public, which publishes Science News, created the fair in 1950 and still runs it. More than one-third of the roughly 1,600 Intel ISEF finalists received awards on May 17 totaling more than $4 million.

    The annual science competition attracts some of the world’s most talented young scientists. This year’s finalists were selected from the winners of science fairs in more than 70 countries, regions and territories. Almost 30 percent of the finalists either have a patent on their work or intend to apply for one.

    “This competition encourages millions of students worldwide every year to explore their passion for math and science while developing solutions for global challenges,” said Wendy Hawkins, the executive director of the Intel Foundation.

    The competition’s $75,000 top cash prize is named for Gordon E. Moore, Intel’s cofounder. Budisteanu received this award for designing software to pilot a low-cost, self-navigating vehicle. Such a car could reduce fatal auto accidents, 90 percent of which are caused by human error.

    The teen’s design relies on Internet-linked cameras, or webcams, to detect people, other cars and large objects such as trees. An onboard 3-D laser radar measures distance to those objects. The software uses that information to adjust the speed of the vehicle.

    Onboard software also helps recognize road signs, lane markers, traffic lanes and curbs. The software adds any newly encountered features to a database that would be available to all cars connected to the Internet.

    Two other young researchers each won Intel Foundation Young Scientist Awards of $50,000.

    Eesha Khare, 18, of Saratoga, Calif., picked up one for designing and building a supercapacitor, a device to store electrical energy. The single electrode in Khare’s device has a core of hydrogen-doped titanium dioxide nanostructures. A flexible, plasticlike polymer surrounds that core. Her novel device can charge up very quickly.

    It also can store almost three times as much electrical energy as previous capacitors. And unlike previous capacitors, it stores that energy in a tiny volume, one comparable to a battery’s. Her new device also holds a charge far longer than batteries do.

    The other $50,000 award went to Henry Wanjune Lin, 17, of Shreveport, La., for modeling the behavior of distant galaxies. Galaxies, the huge collections of stars that are bound by gravity and move as a unit, often occur in clusters. Lin compared his mathematical predictions about galaxy clusters with what astronomers have observed using telescopes.

    He found that the scientists are slightly more likely to find a particular type of cluster: one with galaxies that have cooler-than-usual temperatures at their core. But overall, the teen confirmed, the way astronomers have been surveying clustered galaxies works well.

    Seventeen students won “best of category” awards, each worth $5,000. Budisteanu’s project claimed top honors among computer science projects, Khare conquered the chemistry category and Lin won the day in the physics-and-astronomy group.

    Other first-place category winners include:

    For animal sciences, Michael Shao, 16, of Northville, Mich. He won for showing how a worm responds to cold temperatures. The worm, C. elegans, has a simple nervous system often used as a model for the human nervous system. Shao studied the worm at temperatures between 4° and 20° Celsius. His findings may help scientists design treatments that help people better withstand the cold.

    In behavioral and social sciences, Zarin Rahman, 16, of Brookings, S.D. She showed that stressful experiences such as getting too little sleep or watching too much TV impair a teen’s mood and memory.

    In earth and planetary sciences, Gyou Tanaka, 16, of Mobara, Japan. He dug up small seashells from several layers of dirt at a site southeast of Tokyo. His goal: to understand the environment of 300,000 years ago. He found that this region had been part of the Pacific seafloor. Water depths at the time were somewhere between 10 and 30 meters, he reported.

    In electrical and mechanical engineering, Zeyu Liu, 17, of Calgary, Alberta, in Canada. He designed a device that minimizes friction in systems used to store energy in large rotating wheels. The device uses several types of magnets to lift a wheel and make it float in a stable position.

    In environmental sciences, Naomi Shah, 17, of Portland, Ore. She created an air filter that includes natural materials such as peat, mulch and live plants. In tests, the filter reduced some harmful chemicals in indoor air by as much as 24 percent. Her filter also cut the number of small pollution particles in the air by 18 percent. Indoor air pollution contributes to nearly 2 million deaths across the globe each year, she noted.

    In mathematical sciences, Vinay Iyengar, 17, of Portland, Ore. He developed new techniques to efficiently create secret codes. He showed that the new methods work much better than current code-making schemes. But, he warns, the same techniques can break codes, as well.

    In medicine and health, Jessie MacAlpine, 17, of Woodstock, Canada. She demonstrated that people consuming mustard oil, a simple cooking oil, can help slow the spread of malaria. In her tests, ingesting the oil slowed by 94 percent the growth of parasites that spread malaria. The cost of the amount of oil a person would need to take each day costs about one-millionth as much as currently used antimalaria drugs.

    In microbiology, David Zimmerman, 18, of Los Angeles, Calif. He studied a microbe often used in battery-like fuel cells. Until now, it has been difficult to genetically alter the microbe to make it more useful. But this teen developed a way. Scientists can use his techniques to change the genetic code in other difficult-to-modify microbes, he suggested.

    In biochemistry, Savannah Tobin, 18, of Salem, Ore. She found a way to measure a particular chemical in cat saliva that can cause allergies in people. Unlike previous tests, which required veterinarians to take blood samples, her test is inexpensive and quick.

    In cellular and molecular biology, Hannah Wastyk, 17, of Palmyra, Pa. She developed a promising treatment for melanoma, a particularly deadly form of cancer. The treatment kills a large proportion of cancer cells but doesn’t affect most healthy cells.

    In materials and bioengineering, Samantha Marquez, 17, of Midlothian, Va. Using bacteria and algae, she created hollow shells of cells. These living capsules could be injected into patients to deliver drugs, she said. They could also serve as miniature containers for a variety of lab tests. 

    In energy and transportation, Evie Sobczak, 16, of St. Petersburg, Fla. She found a way to grow algae and then break them down to extract their oil, which could be used as fuel. Compared to existing methods, her techniques boosted oil production by up to 20 percent. This might help make biofuels more economical, she said.

    In environmental management, Shixuan Li, 15, of Lynn Haven, Fla. He created an efficient way to extract an antioxidant from shrimp shells. One kilogram of this substance, astaxanthin, sells for about $6,000. The shells he used are typically thrown away as waste.

    In plant sciences, Samantha DiSalvo, Ryan Kenny and Amy Vitha of Hewlett, N.Y. They probed how plants respond to, and sometimes resist, bacterial infections. These processes haven’t previously been studied in detail at the molecular level, the students said.

    In addition to their “best of category” awards, Tobin, Wastyk and Zimmerman received the Dudley R. Herschbach Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar award. Herschbach, a Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, is the former chairman of Society for Science & the Public. The award includes a trip to Stockholm this December, where the teens will attend the Nobel Prize ceremonies.

    Li, Marquez and Sobczak each also won a behind-the-scenes visit to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. During their trip, they will also visit scientists at Caltech to discuss their Intel ISEF research projects.

    Kenny, DiSalvo and Vitha will also participate in the London International Youth Science Forum this summer. The annual two-week program hosts 300 young scientists from more than 50 nations.

    Second- through fourth-place winners in each of the 17 categories received cash awards of up to $1,500. Additional awards from the Intel ISEF competition included college scholarships, medals and paid summer internships.

    “As this competition gets bigger, students not previously involved in such competitions can realize that independent research is both possible and rewarding,” says Elizabeth Marincola, president of Society for Science & the Public.


              Intel Science Talent Search finalists show off their work   

    Young investigators do real research in bedrooms and garages

    On the Scene

    I can remember only two science projects from my teenage years. One was a tennis ball launcher made of rubber tubing and plywood. The other was a bottle rocket with a cardboard nose. I think my dad built both of them.

    I didn’t see anything like those gadgets at Sunday’s Intel Science Talent Search project exhibition in Washington, D.C. The 17- and 18-year-old finalists aren’t gluing together plastic and cardboard, and they sure aren’t getting their fathers to do their projects for them.

    Adam Joseph Bowman built a plasma gun in his family’s garage out of parts he bought on eBay. The gun is about the size of a toaster and shoots searing jets of charged particles down a metal tube. He crafted a fiber optics system to track the plasma’s path, and is working on a simpler device that would cost less than $200. Adam thinks his invention could help institutions with tight budgets teach students about plasma dynamics.

    When I asked Adam how he knew how to make a plasma gun, he shrugged. After all, as a freshman, he built an electron accelerator.

    Like Adam, Catherine Wong and Sara Volz also started their projects at home. Catherine, a 17-year-old from New Jersey, began building wireless medical devices — a stethoscope and an EKG — in her garage. Both instruments are inexpensive (she got her parts at RadioShack) and transmit heartbeats, lung sounds or EKG data to a cellular phone. Her project could bring better health care to people in the developing world, she said.

    Catherine is poised, well-spoken and passionate. In fact, her composure slipped only when someone asked about her summer plans. What special treat had her almost too excited to speak? Tickets to Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift, perhaps? “I’m going to work at MIT!” she answered.

    Sara Volz’s lab is in her bedroom. The 17-year-old Colorado native built an algae farm under her lofted bed. She has 40 glass flasks growing algae 24 hours a day, and has timed her room’s lights to turn on and off with the algae’s light cycle. Sara figured out how to boost algae oil levels, a trait that could make the photosynthetic organisms more attractive as a source of biofuels.

    Sara has a microscope in her room, and this Christmas she got her very own centrifuge. Her long-term goal, she has said, is to understand the universe. In the meantime, maybe she can help me with my latest idea: a biofuel-powered bottle rocket.

              Understanding Radiant Heat Transfer   
    Understanding Radiant Heat Transfer
    Thermal radiation is electromagnetic radiation generated by the thermal motion of charged particles in matter. All matter with a temperature greater than absolute zero emits thermal radiation. When the temperature of the body is greater than absolute zero, interatomic collisions cause the kinetic energy of the atoms or molecules to change. This results in charge-acceleration and/or dipole oscillation which produces electromagnetic radiation, and the wide spectrum of radiation reflects the wide spectrum of energies and accelerations that occur even at a single temperature. Examples of thermal radiation include the visible light and infrared light emitted by an incandescent light bulb, the infrared radiation emitted by animals and detectable with an infrared camera, and the cosmic microwave background radiation. Thermal radiation is different from thermal convection and thermal conduction—a person near a raging bonfire feels radiant heating from the fire, even if the surrounding air is very cold. Sunlight is part of thermal radiation generated by the hot plasma of the Sun. The Earth also emits thermal radiation, but at a much lower intensity and different spectral distribution (infrared rather than visible) because it is cooler. The Earth’s absorption of solar radiation, followed by its outgoing thermal radiation are the two most important processes that determine the temperature and climate of the Earth. If a radiation-emitting object meets the physical characteristics of a black body in thermodynamic equilibrium, the radiation is called blackbody radiation. Planck’s law describes the spectrum of blackbody radiation, which depends only on the object’s temperature. Wien’s displacement law determines the most likely frequency of the emitted radiation, and the Stefan–Boltzmann law gives the radiant intensity.

              8 Minutes review – tripped by the light fantastic   

    Sadler’s Wells, London
    Alexander Whitley follows an inspiring theme, with immersive sounds and visions, but the choreography is rather less earth-shattering

    Photons, particles which transmit light, take eight minutes to travel from the sun to earth. Hence the title of Alexander Whitley’s new work. The piece, which had its premiere on Tuesday, aims to express concepts from astrophysics in dance, and if this quest is only partly successful, the work is an aural and visual tour de force.

    Whitley’s central premise, following a collaboration with space scientists, appears to be that humanity stands at the halfway point between the microcosmic and the macrocosmic, and that what happens on the molecular scale also happens on the incalculably vast scale. This is an inspiring notion, enabling us to read Whitley’s seven dancers as metaphorical entities. As bodies in space, both literally and figuratively.

The way that my hands mold material that once were left as having no value, then becomes worthy of display. It goes beyond the mere conceptual statement that something is worthy as art. The mystery lies for me in the conscious act of infusing the particles of meaning directly into the raw material at hand. The fact that such things as odd wood chips and springs and plastic paint can hold meaning is stunning amazement. The fact that my pure conscious dreaming mind can be manifest into such materials is a miracle of this natural world we live in. I find that meaning in life comes directly from this experience, the act of sitting still enough to listen and see, and the act of creating that vision to share with others. This is true modern magic.”

              17 Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar   
    Apple cider vinegar has been lauded as a miracle fluid. But to fully benefit, it helps to separate the myths from the facts.

    So we’ve heard the amazing and magical things apple cider vinegar (ACV) can do, from curing sunburn and acne to helping you lose weight and prevent cancer.

    The vinegar has long been loved by all types of gurus. But sadly, not many of the claims are scientifically proven. To fully benefit, you must know the myths from the facts.

    Some safety tips first

    Apple cider vinegar, like other types of vinegar, is like acid to your body. Don’t drink it straight up. 

    Instead, you should dilute it. Add one tablespoons (at most 2) of vinegar to a glass of water.

    If you don’t, it’ll be too acidic for your esophagus. It’s also easy to breathe it in and send acid to your lungs. According to some people, that feels like having sunburn on your lungs. Just imagine that.

    In addition, some foods can cancel out the vinegar’s effect. Others may expand it. To be safe, drink the apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach. It’s a great way to start out the day. But probably not so great of a bedtime drink.

    The most popular brand of ACV seems to be Braggs. You can also make your own out of scratch.

    Now, here are some amazing things that will truly happen if you drink (the diluted version of) apple cider vinegar.

    1. Provides an acetic acid boost.

    The vinegar is made with a two-step process.

    First, bacteria and yeast are added to the apple cider. The sugars in the apples turns into alcohol. It is then further fermented. The alcohol turns into acetic acid.

    Acetic acid is a major component of ACV. The acid is often used for medical purposes. Pharmaceutical versions of acetic acid is used to ear canal conditions and others.

    Some researches suggest it helps control blood pressure and unclog arteries.

    Japanese study looked at the effects of acetic acid and dietary vinegar on rats with hypertension (high blood pressure). Both were able to significantly reduce blood sugar. The researchers concluded that acetic acid is the reason for the effect by vinegar.

    In another research, it was found that acetic acid increased blood flow in the colon. Other acids (butyric and propionic) did not alter blood flow. Those acids even prevents oxygen uptake.

    2. Improves a diabetic diet.

    Type 2 diabetes is a condition that affects millions worldwide. Diabetics are either unable to produce insulin, or they experience insulin resistance. This means cells don’t respond to insulin the way they should.

    Insulin plays a major role in lower blood sugar.

    Vinegar was found to improve insulin sensitivity in those with insulin resistance. Even after a high-carb meal, the participants experienced a more significant decrease in blood sugar.

    It was able to reduce blood sugar when consumed in the form of salad dressing too. Another study found that just 2 tablespoons of ACV can reduce fasting blood sugar by 4 percent.

    This is why many list cider vinegar in diabetic diets.

    But if you have type 2 diabetes, remember to check with your doctor first. Make sure there won’t be any complications with your medication.

    3. Help you lose weight.

    ACV is often touted as a dieting miracle. Unfortunately, this claim is riddled with both myths and facts.

    The acetic acid in vinegar works against enzymes in your stomach that digests starch. This may stop you from absorbing the calories from the carbs. And this can probably help with weight loss. A handful of studies support this claim.

    But no one knows yet how effective ACV is because there haven’t been enough research done.

    However, there is evidence that ACV can make you feel fuller.

    It increases satiety, which means you might eat less. In one study, white bread was served with 3 levels of vinegar. The higher the level of acetic acid in the vinegar, the more full the participants felt. They also had lower blood glucose and insulin levels.

    This can help you eat 200 to 275 fewer calories that day.

    The bottom line is, apple cider vinegar can definitely help you. There’s no harm in sipping some before each meal (if you stay within limits). But it won’t work any magic by itself.

    The most effective way of losing weight is still eating healthy and exercise regularly.

    4. Lowers the risk of heart disease.

    Cardiovascular disease includes heart disease and stroke. It is currently the leading cause of death.

    There are multiple factors that can lead to cardiovascular disease. Some are genetic or environmentally-induced. Some biological factors though, may be decreased with the help of ACV.

    In one study, rats were fed a high cholesterol diet. The group that also had acetic acid in their diet had much lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a type of fat in your blood that can increase risk for heart disease.

    In addition to acetic acid, ACV may also contain chlorogenic acid. This antioxidant has effects similar to caffeine. It stops LDL cholesterol particles from oxidizing, shown by various studies. The oxidation of LDL particles crucial in developing heart disease.

    Add this to the fact that acetic acid can lower blood pressure, it sounds pretty good. However, most experiments were done on lab rats.

    The only human evidence comes from Harvard. Women who ate oil and vinegar salad dressing had a lower risk for heart disease.

    The evidence is promising, but not concrete as of yet. Although, it might be beneficial to add some vinegar salad dressing.

    5. Helps absorb more nutrients from your food.

    Your stomach is usually at a pH level of 1.0 to 2.0. And now, that is really acidic. To put things into perspective, white distilled vinegar is a 2.4Battery acid is around 1. Thankfully this acid stays in your stomach (unless there are problems such as acid reflux).

    This uberly acidic environment is what sterilizes the digestive tract and kills the microbes. When the acid level falls, unfriendly bacteria may start to multiply. On the light side, this can lead to bloating and indigestion. And decreased absorption of vitamins and minerals.

    In more extreme cases, it can lead to cancer.

    It seems logical to try to up the acid level by ingesting some vinegar. It was also shown that dietary vinegar enhanced calcium absorption in the intestines. Again, this was experimented on our good friend, the rat. But the researchers concluded that this may even help prevent osteoporosis. So it’s still good news.

    But, of course, make sure you dilute the apple cider vinegar first. Don’t drink too much acid.

    6. Lower risk of heartburn.

    As mentioned above, acid for digestion usually stays in your stomach. Unless you have acid reflux. In which the muscle at the entrance of the stomach fails to close properly or at the right time. This allows the acid to escape and go up your esophagus.

    This can cause the burning pain in your chest called heartburn. If you experience this more than twice per month, you may have acid reflux disease. It’s also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GRD).

    Despite what you may think, various acidic drinks have been noted to prevent heartburn. Other than ACV, coffee and lemon water are also included. Why? Because when diluted with water, there’s an alkalizing effect.

    But with ACV, the effects depend on the cause of your heartburn-like symptoms:

    • Stomach ulcers or esophagus lesions: Vinegar will only make things worse

    • Something you ate: Adding a bit of acetic acid will help neutralize the acid

    As a precaution, make sure you ask your doctor first before adding cider vinegar to your diet if you have heartburn.

    7. Balance your body’s pH levels.

    Now let’s expand the aforementioned alkalizing effect.

    Vinegars, by definition, are pretty acidic. In fact, in the USA, you’re not allowed to label something as vinegar unless the acidity level is at least 4 percent. But unlike others, apple cider vinegar is the one with an alkalizing effect.

    Though acidic, ACV promotes an alkaline environment inside your body. This is due to how ACV is broken down and digested.

    Many viruses and bacteria are unable to live in an alkaline environment.

    When you don’t have enough alkaline, your body takes calcium in an attempt to become alkaline. This leeching of calcium can lead to loss of bone density and osteoporosis.

    Despite contradicting claims, many people enjoy better health after switching to a more alkalizing diet. It’s definitely worth a try.

    8. Better digestion.

    You’ve probably heard all about probiotics. They are live microorganisms that help with digestion and destroy harmful bacteria. We know them from yogurt and other products, such as skin creams.

    There are five types of probiotics in apple cider vinegar. They may or may not still be alive when you drink your cup of vinegar though.

    Fortunately, there’s another part of the “mother” of ACV (that gunk at the bottom of the bottle): prebiotics.

    Prebiotics, as opposed to probiotics, are a special form of fiber. They nourish the friendly bacteria (probiotics) that are already in laying in your gut.

    Pectin, the prebiotic, is also what slows absorption of glucose. There have been studies that show pectin binds to cholesterol, causing less of it to be absorbed.

    Most benefits from ACV are thanks to prebiotics. So make sure you shake your bottle of ACV well and scoop out the gunk at the bottom.

    9. More energy efficient muscles.

    Athletes drink all sorts of concoctions for optimal performance.

    One of them is pickle juice. A group of young men who were electronically stimulated to cramp were able to stop cramping faster if they drank pickle juice. The hero is the vinegar that’s part of the pickle juice.

    This is probably because vinegar contains potassium. This is one of the seven essential minerals for your body. It is responsible for giving you an energy boost. It also helps fine tune muscle control and sense of touch. Without enough potassium, you get muscle twitches and cramps.

    Athletes are also drinking apple cider vinegar. In another research on rats, acetic acid boosts glycogen repletion in skeletal muscles. This means the acid helps your muscles turn carbs into energy. And this will definitely give you more fuel for your exercises.

    So if you’re planning on a big workout day, drink some ACV and load up on the carbs. You might feel more powerful the next day. But still remember to stay hydrated with regular old water.

    10. Protection against cancer.

    We all know the dangerous implications of cancer. It is one of the leading causes of death in modern day society.

    The disease is characterized by an uncontrollable growth of cells. There are many causes and factors for cancer. There are just as many home remedies that can apparently help prevent it.

    Experts suggest ACV has beneficial systemic effects, with historical records. But still need to be “rediscovered” by modern science. In a 2004 study, vinegar was found to have an antitumor effect. (The researchers note that rice vinegar had a larger effect than wine and apple vinegars though).

    The fermentation process of ACV formed a neutral alpha-glycan content. This was able to decrease cancerous tumors in mice. Again, it might have a different effect on actual humans. But it’s still a good start.

    An observational study also showed that consuming vinegar led to decreased esophageal cancer.

    So cider vinegar seems to be able to slow or stop cancer growth. But it’s definitely not the magic cure for something as dangerous as cancer.

    11. Fresher breath.

    A lot of people use vinegar as a home cleaning tool. It has great antibacterial properties. The handy acetic acid kills bacteria and viruses.

    Bad breath is also caused by bacteria. It makes sense to think that swishing around some ACV can kill those microorganisms. And in theory, that’s the truth.

    However, experts note that the vinegar probably isn’t as effective as products specifically designed for fresh breath. Treat it more like a nice and convenient side effect.

    In addition, apple cider vinegar is highly acidic. As we know. It can erode the enamel on your teeth. (Claims that ACV can whiten your teeth are bogus.)

    To prevent this, consider drinking with a straw. And wait at least half an hour before brushing your teeth afterward. This will protect your teeth while still giving you the benefits.

    12. Control of candida.

    Candida is a chronic yeast disorder. Everyone has candida albicans in their gut. It works to digest sugar. But when you have too much of a sweet tooth, things can get out of hand.

    Some symptoms of candida include bad breath, exhaustion, joint pain and digestive problems. It can really lower your quality of life by draining your energy.

    Apple cider vinegar is a natural remedy against the disorder. It has antifungal properties and contain enzymes to regulate candida levels. The yeast that ferments the vinegar can also act as a prebiotic.

    Do note that there hasn’t been specific research on this. However, apple cider vinegar does seem to be really helpful for your gut.

    13. Nutrition boost.

    People talk about how apple cider vinegar can detox your body. They cite how potassium can break up mucus. The acetic acid should be able to bind to toxins and take them out too.

    Which may all be true. People have experienced good results. Apple vinegar has been found to clear sinuses and heal sore throats too.

    However, there aren’t any true scientific evidence to back up the claims.

    What minerals and vitamins can you get though? Let’s take a look:

    • Calcium: 2% of daily value

    • Phosphorus: 2% of daily value

    • Iron: 3% of daily value

    • Magnesium: 3% of daily value

    • Potassium: 5% of daily value

    • Manganese: 30% of daily value

    Dietary manganese is usually forgotten, but still crucial to our bodily functions. It is responsible for bone production. It helps control blood sugar and fights free radicals.

    In addition, manganese works for skin integrity. It plays a crucial role in creating collagen. So while ACV may or may not detox your body, it can still help give you healthy skin.

    There are also some benefits that you can get without directly drinking apple cider vinegar. It’s great if you want to take advantage of it but don’t really like the taste.

    14. Cleans food.

    Vinegar is often used as a cleaning supply. It has many antibacterial properties.

    Research shows that it can reduce Salmonella and other pathogens. The researchers used lemon water and diluted vinegar to clean fresh rocket leaves and shredded onion. And for best results, you can actually try combining the two cleaning agents. By using a 1:1 mixture, the Salmonella was almost completely destroyed.

    To use, fill a spray bottle with diluted ACV. Then spritz your produce before rinsing and serving. That doesn’t mean salads with ACV dressing is spotless though. More research is needed. But some experts say the other ingredients in salad dressing might negate the effect.

    15. Gets rid of smelly feet.

    Here’s great news if you often get sweaty, or just generally smelly, feet. Vinegar can help freshen your breath. And it can freshen your feet too.

    At the end of the day, moisten paper towels with the apple cider vinegar. Give your feet a few wipes and you’re all set.

    16. Relieves jellyfish stings.

    Not sure how many people deal with jellyfish on a regular basis. But if you ever get stung, don’t worry. Get some diluted vinegar.

    According to WebMD, vinegar helps deactivate the stinging cells. If vinegar isn’t available, you can also use baking soda. After rinsing, soak the area with hot water (or ice packs).

    But if you have immediate access to hot water, that works even better, according to one study.

    17. Fights dandruff.

    Dandruff is a common but annoying scalp condition. It can be caused by overly oily or dry skin, or a fungus called malassezia.

    You can try over-the-counter shampoos and treatments. Look for shampoos that contain:

    • Pyrithione zinc: reduces fungus

    • Coal tar: slows how quickly scalp cells die and flake off

    • Salicylic acid: eliminate scaling

    • Selenium sulfide: slow scalp cells from dying and relieve malassezia

    • Ketoconazole: antifungal

    Of course, there are also natural remedies.

    Some experts recommend using cider vinegar for your dandruff problem. The vinegar’s acidity changes the pH of your scalp and also has antibacterial properties.

    Dilute ACV with equal parts water in a spray bottle. Spritz onto your scalp evenly. Then wrap your head with a towel. After letting it sit in for at least 15 minutes, wash as usual. For best results, do this process twice a week.

    Some things to be careful of

    Despite all the great stuff, apple cider vinegar is vinegar and acidic.

    You must dilute the ACV just a bit. Don’t just drink it straight out of the bottle. And since the acid can erode your teeth enamel, drink with a straw for best results.

    The acid can also irritate your skin. Especially if you have burns or lesions. Sure, apple cider vinegar is antibacterial. But if you can help it, try not to use it for your acne breakout. Or for cleaning wounds. Or sunburn. The vinegar might just make things worse.

    And, as always, take things with a grain of salt. The world of apple cider vinegar benefits is still much uncharted. There’s a bunch of stuff we don’t know much about.

    Effects may be different for everyone. And some might turn out to be bogus claims. But ACV is still a much loved gem.

    A 13 year old once made lollipops with apple cider vinegar and sugar. To cure hiccups. People also swear that ACV can kick a sore throat’s butt or clear up your stuffed up nose. You may find that it works miracles for you too.

    What a narrow view of faith Mr. Kuznicki has! And what a strange view of science. He seems to define faith as the "falsehoods we prefer to keep unexamined". With this definition, faith is clearly foolish. But this is a misunderstanding that simply begs the question. A better definition of faith is "the reliance on things unseen". For example, in the Standard Model, we build the menagerie of particles we observe from six quarks and a handful of leptons. We have never observed a bare quark. There is reason to believe (asymptotic freedom) that we never will. We rely on these unseen particles to craft a simple and beautiful model that explains what we have seen and predicts correctly things we have yet to see. Are quarks real? I have faith they are. I think that the Standard Model of particle physics is an example of good science. But it seems that in Mr. Kuznicki's view, with it's reliance on faith in the existence of quarks, maybe it isn't. The view that science is experimental and religion is given by fiat is a false dichotomy. The council of Nicea wasn't handed the concept of the Trinity from on high, but found that no one concept of God could match their experience: not just a creator, not just a spirit moving in the world, not just a loving redeemer, but all three. Revelation isn't just in scripture but is implicit in the creation itself. Mr. Kuznicki might benefit from reflecting on what is the source of his certainty that the universe _can_ be understood: he may be surprised to find that he too is a man of faith, with a faith not so different from what he now dismisses.

              Brown Researcher Invents Diabetes Drug Delivery Method   
    A Brown University engineering professor has been recognized for her work inventing better ways to deliver drugs into the human body, including an innovation that may help diabetics. Dr. Edith Mathiowitz teaches medical science and engineering at Brown. And she’s been inducted into the National Academy of Inventors for developing new methods for helping the body absorb insulin and other difficult-to-deliver drugs. Insulin, for instance, can usually only be given by injection. Taken orally, if it isn’t destroyed by the stomach, it’s too big a molecule to be absorbed where it’s needed in the intestines. Mathiowitz may have solved the problem by wrapping smaller bits of the drug in nanoparticles. “Those nanoparticles, first of all, protect the insulin from the enzymes in the stomach," said Mathiowitz. "And then, if you make them adhesive, if you put on top of them sticking molecules, and this is done simply by coating, they can penetrate the intestinal mucosa.” So how close are we to a

              Comment on Fourteen Incredible Facts About 9/11 by VN Alexander   
    This article on carbon nanoparticles says, "CNT of commercial origin, common now, would not have been present in substantial numbers in the WTC complex before the disaster in 2001. However, the high temperatures generated during the WTC disaster as a result of the combustion of fuel in the presence of carbon and metals would have been sufficient to locally generate large numbers of CNT. This scenario could have caused the generation of CNT that we have noted in the dust samples and in the lung biopsy specimens." However I could not find where "high temperatures" were defined. How hot does it have to be to create nanoparticles. Were the temperatures sufficient. And is it actually true that the carn nanaparticles can be produced spontaneously in high numbers; no citation was offered for this claim.

    Aerobiology: Experimental considerations, observations and future tools.

    Appl Environ Microbiol. 2017 Jun 30;:

    Authors: Haddrell AE, Thomas RJ

    Abstract
    Understanding airborne survival and decay of microorganisms is important for a range of public health and biodefence applications including epidemiological and risk analysis modelling. Techniques for experimental aerosol generation, retention in aerosol phase and sampling require careful consideration and understanding so that they are representative of the conditions the bioaerosol would experience in the environment. This review explores current understanding of atmospheric transport in relation to advances and limitations of aerosol generation, maintenance in the aerosol phase and sampling techniques. Potential tools for the future are examined at the interface between atmospheric chemistry, aerosol physics and molecular microbiology that could explore heterogeneity and variability at the single droplet and single microorganism level within a bioaerosol. The review highlights the importance of method comparison and validation in bioaerosol research, and the benefits application of novel techniques could bring to increased understanding of aerobiological phenomena in diverse research fields, particularly during the progression of atmospheric transport where complex interdependent physicochemical and biological processes are occurring within bioaerosol particles.

    @Ethan, <i>"produce miniature black holes — which is how you conceive of creating this additive phenomenon"</i> Yes and no, my hypothesis is that any high energy particle collision produces small soundwave-ish ripples is SpaceTime, HiggsField and/or Vacuum, which are currently undetectable because to soft. But there is no theory for such tiny waves except one by Stephen Hawking where BHs dissipate energy; and the fact that we now have proof of GWs produced by BHs; along with the legit theories of MBs, made it for me possible to make an 'acceptable' assumption.

    Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

    There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own. 

    There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.

With respect, please visit:

    You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning. 

    We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
    Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

    Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

    Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

    You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

    Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

    Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn.

    In 1970, National Geographic printed a spread about Missoula’s air pollution, lumping us with the most polluted places in the country. They weren’t wrong. For decades until the early 1970s, tepee burners filled our valley with industrial wood waste smoke, and in the 1980s, residential woodstoves and fireplaces caused such dense smoke that streetlights would turn on during the daylight hours. Health studies from the 1980s showed Missoula children had decreased lung function compared to children from Montana cities with cleaner air… Missoula has come a long way.

              Compressive Sensing for Millimeter Wave Antenna Array Diagnosis. (arXiv:1612.06345v3 [cs.IT] UPDATED)   

    Authors: Mohammed E. Eltayeb, Tareq Y. Al-Naffouri, Robert W. Heath Jr

    The radiation pattern of an antenna array depends on the excitation weights and the geometry of the array. Due to wind and atmospheric conditions, outdoor millimeter wave antenna elements are subject to full or partial blockages from a plethora of particles like dirt, salt, ice, and water droplets. Handheld devices are also subject to blockages from random finger placement and/or finger prints. These blockages cause absorption and scattering to the signal incident on the array, and change the array geometry. This distorts the far-field radiation pattern of the array leading to an increase in the sidelobe level and decrease in gain. This paper studies the effects of blockages on the far-field radiation pattern of linear arrays and proposes two array diagnosis techniques for millimeter wave antenna arrays. The proposed techniques jointly estimate the locations of the blocked antennas and the induced attenuation and phase shifts. Numerical results show that the proposed techniques provide satisfactory results in terms of fault detection with reduced number of measurements (diagnosis time) provided that the number of blockages is small compared to the array size.

Several forms of magnetic behavior have been observed in different materials, including: Ferromagnetic and ferrimagnetic materials are the ones normally thought of as magnetic; they are attracted to a magnet strongly enough that the attraction can be felt. These materials are the only ones that can retain magnetization and become magnets; a common example is a traditional refrigerator magnet. Ferrimagnetic materials, which include ferrites and the oldest magnetic materials magnetite and lodestone, are similar to but weaker than ferromagnetics. The difference between ferro- and ferrimagnetic materials is related to their microscopic structure, as explained in Magnetism. Paramagnetic substances, such as platinum, aluminum, and oxygen, are weakly attracted to either pole of a magnet. This attraction is hundreds of thousands of times weaker than that of ferromagnetic materials, so it can only be detected by using sensitive instruments or using extremely strong magnets. Magnetic ferrofluids, although they are made of tiny ferromagnetic particles suspended in liquid, are sometimes considered paramagnetic since they cannot be magnetized. Diamagnetic means repelled by both poles. Compared to paramagnetic and ferromagnetic substances, diamagnetic substances, such as carbon, copper, water, and plastic, are even more weakly repelled by a magnet. The permeability of diamagnetic materials is less than the permeability of a vacuum. All substances not possessing one of the other types of magnetism are diamagnetic; this includes most substances. Although force on a diamagnetic object from an ordinary magnet is far too weak to be felt, using extremely strong superconducting magnets, diamagnetic objects such as pieces of lead and even mice can be levitated, so they float in mid-air. Superconductors repel magnetic fields from their interior and are strongly diamagnetic.

              Tunnelling of Massive/Massless Bosons from the Apparent Horizon of FRW Universe   
    We investigate the Hawking radiation of vector particles from the apparent horizon of a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe in the framework of quantum tunnelling method. Furthermore we use Proca equation, a relativistic wave equation for a massive/massless spin-1 particle (massless photons, weak massive and bosons, strong massless gluons, and and mesons) together with a Painlevé space-time metric for the FRW universe. We solve the Proca equation via Hamilton-Jacobi (HJ) equation and the WKB approximation method. We recover the same result for the Hawking temperature associated with vector particles as in the case of scalar and Dirac particles tunnelled from outside to the inside of the apparent horizon in a FRW universe.
