Markos Giannopoulos22,807A circle of relevance and engagement // It's been a while since I've done a circle like this, I've been neglecting my duties! This is a thank you to people who have engaged with my recents posts, added me in an original circle of their own and also people which Google has ranked them to be of high relevance to my posts and my overall G+ tastes.  So, thank you for making my Google+ better! :) As always, this circle could not be created without +Circloscope and +CircleCount  #circlesunday   #circleshare   #circlediscovery   #engagers   #relevance  2014-11-02 13:08:162295210

Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Jack C Crawford67,189So you all might remember the Angels circle, right?This one has 440 cool guys (caveat emptor ... my preferences may differ from yours ... I like all of these gentlemen).So here's to the men!G+{I added myself just because ...}2013-07-10 20:10:59441913783
Gideon Rosenblatt28,713Gideon Rosenblatt's Top 100These are the folks Google tells me are my most relevant people (slightly modified to remove people who are relevant, but not active here on Google+).Looking through this list, I can tell you that these are great people full of interesting ideas and engagement. I'm not in the circle here, so I can objectively say that this group is a worthy addition to your circles. Enjoy this group of people - I know I do. They enrich my experience here. Without them, I probably wouldn't still be here today. P.S. - If you got a notification, that means you're in the circle. 2013-06-11 20:53:39100662467
Gideon Rosenblatt23,936My Top 150 Here are the 150 people that Google tells me are most relevant to me here on Google+. This is a really good group of people, full of interesting insights and a willingness to help others.I give you a hardy recommendation to add these folks to your circles here. Your stream will thank you for it later.:-)2013-02-22 00:43:3815037734
INTP0Since last time I shared the INTP circle, the followers circle grew from 66 to 192. So I'm sharing this circle again. If you do not want to be in the circle being shared, please let me know.This circle will be updated from time to time. If you'd like to be included in this circle, add INTP page. That way I can add you back. (A Google Plus page cannot add any user unless the user add the page first.)2012-11-17 09:56:49193202
Matthew J Price4,908Here it is again, my Accelerated Thinkers circle.  These futurists, authors, transhumanists, nerds, experts, pages, and all around thought leaders account for the vast majority of the good news I receive from G+.  Whatever I share that I didn't find in my RSS feed came from these ladies and gentlemen.If you followed nothing but these 70 people, you would have a pretty solid idea of what sort of craziness is coming down the pipe.I owe them a great debt for the thoughtfulness of their content curation and the added value of their voices. Thank you!I no longer spend any meaningful amount of time searching for new people to add to this circle.  If you know someone that belongs here please leave a comment nominating them (or yourself) or send me a message.  If you know someone with educated opinions about the future who posts future relevant thoughts and news the majority of the time, that's what this circle is about. #ScienceSunday   #Transhumanism   #Futurism   #AcceleratedChange  2012-10-22 00:32:2970317

John Kellden10,222Social Curation, part 6: Social Curators v3"...what watch? Ten watch. Such much?"Subterranean Homesick Blues:+Bradley HorowitzPearltrees:+Oliver StarrSocial curation - an evolving set of buckets:1. Social media - which to me boils down to getting your story, your brand straight in this new networked, participatory, two-way market.2. Social business - including a large part of the startup scene, and also things like hackerspaces, 3D-printing, large companies struggling to adopt a new more social culture...3. Social signal - the whole analysis/symthesis thing, where we'll help each other understand what is going on, whether deeper learning, social learning, peer learning, informal learning, a quiet pervasive revolution happening as we speak.4. Social practices - where we share success stories, business cases , hangouts and experiential stuff, assessing what works and what doesnt.5. Social innovation and transformation - the difficult, complex, slightly less accessible corner - how global and local intersect, design thinking, narrative, sensemaking, semiosis, patterns, culture, transitions. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you all would find the odd post from me here. :)Social cocreation is da shiznitMy intention here is to honour two principles - one, the cocreated nature of this circle, since it is all about social curation. Two, if at all possible, provide an as rich and diverse signal as possible, for the benefit of all other Google plussers in need of our various social curation insights.Social curation: how we shape our content and how it shapes us in returnThere is quite probably as many different takes on social curation as there are people in this circle, and then some.Whither Dunbar? - What size circles?Keeping this circle under two hundred people thereabouts, might be a good size for new google plussers should they want to derive benefit from the gathered collective intelligence from this bunch of social curators.2012-09-26 07:52:4314620522

John Kellden9,492Google+ : Top EngagersLa creme de la cremeFifty people are selected by +John Fanavans :I have no idea how many people follow me. At some point, you decide that you will become a broadcasting service, and engage primarily with a core group. It happens to everyone. When you do, I suggest you reach out to new people like I do from time to time. Just to ensure you dont stagnate. And run public hangouts, they are hard, but they are worth it.He is not your guru. What he is though, is someone having thrown every conceivable angle and the kitchen sink on people, figuring out who are the top engagers:https://plus.google.com/u/0/118328436599489401972/posts/A8QsWpXLnXBHeuristics For The Win Win WinI've added a whole bunch of people, applying my own super seekrit heuristics, towards turning this into what is probably the best circle ever, never to be surpassed. Until next week that is, when I've cooked up a fresh batch of algorithms. But that's then, and this is now, here, enjoy:2012-08-08 07:35:1012933626

Chris Robinson24,784General Science Circle- Final UpdateLast August I started this General Science Database (http://goo.gl/tp06X), which could be uploaded into Google+ using the import contacts feature. Over the last year, the database has morphed into a shared circle and more recently into +Science on Google+: A Public Database. Due to the increasing overlap with the +Science on Google+: A Public Database, this will be the last time that I will be updating and sharing this circle.If you are a scientist, science teacher, or science writer, please feel free to add your profile/page to the +Science on Google+: A Public Database by filling out this form (http://goo.gl/yEg7M) and circling +Science on Google+: A Public Database. 2012-07-25 14:47:31300101339
Jeff Jockisch18,43275 Non-IdiotsI haven't done a circle share recently to let you know who I'm interacting with a lot.  This is half of my top 150 most relevant.  I couldn't stop at 50 or 100 -- too many good people here :)  Look for the other half of the 150 most relevant share as 75 Non-Ghosts2012-07-25 01:43:317521327

Matthew J Price0Here is my most carefully curated circle of Acceleration Aware individuals.  These 50 people (plus myself) are the most outspoken about the real hot topics in futurism like Genetics Nanotechnology and AI + Robotics, but also about the philosophy, politics, economics and spirituality of the future.I carefully considered everyone on this list, plus many more people who are arguably more important in the transhumanist community, but are not active enough on G+ to contribute meaningfully.  Also, people who had a large majority of posts that were political in nature were selected against.If you want to see where the future is headed, these 50 are a good place to start.  If you feel like you belong in this circle, say so below!2012-07-09 03:01:005132610
John Kellden7,662Here's a few people who are not too shabby.I will spend a week in Greece with wife and kids. Have promised not to bring laptop, and not cheat too much with the G+ mobile thing either. This means you will have to wander aimlessly through the Google Plus Ghosttown while I'm working my tan, enjoying food and wine and sploshing about in the pool. But have no fear, quality content and even higher quality conversation is just a few clicks away, even if you only add a few of the people in the below circle. You all behave now, and talk more in a week.2012-06-18 09:24:0950043238
Gregory Esau9,648My Community Intelligence CircleI use the term community here pretty broadly, in that my community, the global community, and G+ all blur together in ways that make boundaries somewhat meaningless. Therefor, this is my Community Intelligence circle. Reading and engaging with these people will raise your intel (so to speak) of the world around us, the world of Google Plus, maybe your world, and the dots that connect them. For the many people who have circled me over the last few months (and thank you!!), these are the people that raise my IQ and EQ.2012-05-31 23:58:0014220210
Gideon Rosenblatt13,462Highly Relevant CircleI've gotten a bit out of the habit of sharing circles lately, and so thought I'd share this group of people that Google thinks are most relevant to me (in other words, the first 100 I get when I click on "Your circles" and sort by "Relevance"). Looking at this group, I'd have to say that Google does a very good job. Not perfect. There are people who I feel I interact with a lot here who are not in this top 100 of "most relevant" according to the Google relevance algorithm. The only tweaks I made were to take out a small handful of folks who aren't all that active on G+, but had high relevance because they are Gmail contacts I email a lot. So that's it. Enjoy this group. It's a great group of people. Very interesting content. Some are big Google Plussers, some not so big, but all are relevant - at least to me - and if they aren't already, I hope they will soon be for you as well.2012-05-29 23:29:32100702348
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 1 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #1 of the 2, and #2 is next. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #sharedcircles #entrepreneur +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:22:494491159

Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you?

Tesla is cutting some of the options on its Model S sedan. I think this is a good strategy at least until it matures a little more as a company. It's smart to keep its product lineup lean until it becomes more capable of handling the infrastructure requirements of a larger more complicated lineup.

“A magnesium battery’s capacity is 8 to 12 times higher than a lithium battery. In addition, its charge-discharge efficiency is 5 times higher.”

If these numbers hold true after commercialization, can you imagine the value this will have? Wow just wow!!

The point of money is that it makes intermediation easy. [...] Once the use of money is required for any purpose, the people who control the framework—whether those people are government officials, bankers, or what have you—get to decide the terms on which everyone else gets access to money, which amounts to effective control over everyone else. That is to say, they become the primary intermediaries, and every other intermediation depends on them and the money system they control.

This is why, to cite only one example, British colonial administrators in Africa imposed a house tax on the native population, even though the cost of administering and collecting the tax was more than the revenue the tax brought in. By requiring the tax to be paid in money rather than in kind, the colonial government forced the natives to participate in the money economy, on terms that were of course set by thecol... more »

By requiring the tax to be paid in money rather than in kind, the colonial government forced the natives to participate in the money economy, on terms that were of course set by the colonial administration and British business interests. The money economy is the basis on which nearly all other forms of intermediation rest, and forcing the native peoples to work for money instead of allowing them to meet their economic needs in some less easily exploited fashion was an essential part of the mechanism that pumped wealth out of the colonies for Britain’s benefit.

Watch the way that the money economy has insinuated itself into every dimension of modern life in an industrial society and you’ve got a ringside seat from which to observe the metastasis of intermediation in recent decades. Where money goes, intermediation follows

[...]

The Volsunga saga and the Nibelungenlied, for example, are versions of the same story, based on dim memories of events in the Rhine valley in the century or so after Rome’s fall. The primary plot engine of those events is a hoard of the usual late Roman kind,  which passes from hand to hand by way of murder, torture, treachery, vengeance, and the extermination of entire dynasties. For that matter, when Beowulf dies after slaying his dragon, and his people discover that the dragon was guarding a treasure, do they rejoice? Not at all; they take it for granted that the kings and warriors of every neighboring kingdom are going to come and slaughter them to get it—and in fact that’s what happens. That’s business as usual in a dark age society.

The problem with stockpiling gold on the brink of a dark age is thus simply another dimension, if a more extreme one, of the broader problem with intermediation. It bears remembering that gold is not wealth; it’s simply a durable form of money, and thus, like every other form of money, an arbitrary token embodying a claim to real wealth—that is, goods and services—that other people produce. If the goods and services aren’t available, a basement safe full of gold coins won’t change that fact, and if the people who have the goods and services need them more than they want gold, the same is true. Even if the goods and services are to be had, if everyone with gold is bidding for the same diminished supply, that gold isn’t going to buy anything close to what it does today. What’s more, tokens of abstract value have another disadvantage in a society where the rule of law has broken down: they attract violence the way a dead rat draws flies.

Google launches Contributor, a crowdfunding tool for publishers

Google often gets criticized by publishers for taking their content without asking them first, but the web giant has probably done more to experiment with alternative monetization options for content than any other media entity. On Thursday it starts rolling out a new one called Google Contributor, which is designed to allow web users to pay sites that they visit a monthly fee, and in return see no Google ads when they visit those sites.

Eric Schmidt’s Farm2050 Collective Will Back Agriculture Tech To Feed Earth’s Growing Population

We’ll need to produce 70% more food by 2050 to sustain a world population expected to grow to 10 billion. Yet agriculture startups struggle to get the funding, manufacturing, and test facilities needed to build tech that could boost food production. To fix that disconnect, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors and Flextronics Lab IX today launched Farm2050, a collective that will support AgTech startups with capital, design, manufacturing, and test farms to try out their inventions.

Sunscreen=probably bad. It interferes with hormones, can delay baby development during pregnancy.

Study links ultraviolet filters to pregnancy delays

Benzophenone (BP)-type ultraviolet (UV) filters comprise a class of about 29 chemicals commonly used, among other purposes, in sunscreens and other personal care products to protect skin and hair from sun damage. Some of these chemicals, upon being absorbed by the skin, can interfere with the body's hormones and endocrine system processes. Researchers found that men with high exposure to UV filters BP-2 or 4OH-BP had a 30 percent reduction in fecundity, the biological ability to reproduce. Lower fecundity may result in a longer time to pregnancy.___Sunscreen=probably bad. It interferes with hormones, can delay baby development during pregnancy.

Chemical in coffee may help prevent obesity-related disease

A chemical compound commonly found in coffee may help prevent some of the damaging effects of obesity. Scientists have found that chlorogenic acid, or CGA, significantly reduced insulin resistance and accumulation of fat in the livers of mice who were fed a high-fat diet.

"We're not suggesting that people start drinking a lot of coffee to protect themselves from an unhealthy lifestyle," said Ma, who is also a member of UGA's Obesity Initiative. "But we do think that we might be able to create a useful therapeutic using CGA that will help those at risk for obesity-related disease as they make positive lifestyle changes."

Open Government
PDFTribute

Open Government was published in 2010 by O'Reilly Media. The United States had just elected a president in 2008, who, on his first day in office, issued an executive order committing his administration to "an unprecedented level of openness in government."

Open Government was published in 2010 by O'Reilly Media. The United States had just elected a president in 2008, who, on his first day in office, issued an executive order committing his administration to "an unprecedented level of openness in government." The contributors of Open Government had long fought for transparency and openness in government, as well as access to public information. Aaron Swartz was one of these contributors (Chapter 24: When is Transparency Useful?).

World's oldest people share no genetic secrets

US scientists said Wednesday they've found no genetic secrets shared between a group of 17 supercentenarians, or those who have lived beyond 110. "From this small sample size, the researchers were unable to find rare protein-altering variants significantly associated with extreme longevity compared to control genomes," said the study led by Hinco Gierman of Stanford University.

This Device Diagnoses Hundreds of Diseases Using a Single Drop of Blood

Chan’s team has created a portable handheld device that can diagnose hundreds of diseases using a single drop of blood with what Chan claims is gold-standard accuracy. Known as rHEALTH, the technology was developed over the course of seven years with grants from NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. On Monday, the team received yet another nod (and more funding) as the winners of this year’s Nokia Sensing XChallenge, one of several competitions run by the moonshot-seeking XPrize Foundation.___ #MedicalDiagnostics   #BioInformatics   #InformationScience   #Chemistry   #BloodTesting   #LabOnAChip   #Tricorder   #DiseaseDetection   #Health   #SciTek

#ScienceSunday   #Science  Number 9 interests me the most.

SciTech #ScienceSunday Digest, 45/14.
Isotopic metamaterials, advanced cheap drones, 3D printed LEDs, inter-galactic stars, CAD evolution, sirtuin antiaging evidence, bio-synthetic drug production, trapping rainbows, SCNT better than IPS. 

1. Large Isotropic Metamaterials.
A new generation of split-ring resonator type metamaterials that are largely directionally isotropic can be fabricated to usefully large scales http://www.riken.jp/en/pr/press/2014/20141024_1/. The group managed to fabricate the metamaterial with standard lithographic techniques and materials engineered to fold into the correct shape, and was able to produce functional surfaces with an area measuring 4mm x 4mm - a useful scale that could be used in conjunction with a camera lens for example. While this demonstration metamaterial functions in the infrared range of the spectrum, it is essentially isotropic and worked regardless of the direction from which it was viewed (up to an angle of 40 degrees). The group will explore stacking of layers to engineer other properties and ideally extend the technique into shorter wavelengths. 

2. Affordable Drones Becoming More Advanced.
A basic neuromorphic chip containing 576 neurons has been tested successfully to read sensory data from a tiny sub-100 gram quadrotor drone http://www.technologyreview.com/news/532176/a-brain-inspired-chip-takes-to-the-sky/. The chip processes data from optical, ultrasound, and infrared sensors as it flies between rooms, forming and reforming on-chip neuronal connections in real time and being able to tell if it is in a new room or one it had been in before, all while drawing less than 50 milliwatts of power. Built as part of a DARPA challenge it’ll be a while before capabilities like this find their way into consumer drones. But consumer-level drones are becoming pretty advanced in any case with the new eXom drone http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/aerial-robots/sensefly-exom-drone-vision-and-ultrasonic-sensors that includes 5 vision and 5 ultrasound sensors for 360 degree awareness and uses this with new algorithms to set new standards in positional stability and autonomous control.

3. 3D Printed Quantum Dot LEDs.
3D printing can now produce interwoven structures of quantum dots, polymers, and metal nanoparticles to create the first fully 3D printed LEDs http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=37985.php. As a proof-of-concept the team created 2x2x2 arrays of LEDs that included both horizontal and vertical electrical wiring, and also the ability to 3D scan a curved surface (such as a contact lens) and to conformally print the LEDs on non-flat topologies. The approach involves first identifying the right materials with the required characteristics, dissolving the different materials in different orthogonal solvents, and printing from a suitable CAD design. The team next hope to increase resolution and improve performance and aim to print other active devices such as MEMS, transistors, solar cells, and photodiodes. These new conductive polymers http://phys.org/news/2014-11-path-electrons-polymers-limits.html may also prove useful in these applications. 

4. Half of Stars Found Outside of Galaxies.
Recent, and quite provocative, studies on astronomical observations strongly suggest that half of all stars in the Universe float outside conventional galactic boundaries http://www.nature.com/news/half-of-stars-lurk-outside-galaxies-1.16288. The best explanation seems to be that the stars wound up in intergalactic space as the result of galactic collisions and mergers. The observations were made with the Cosmic Infrared Background Experiment that unexpectedly showed a huge surplus of light coming from between galaxies; as much light as galaxies themselves produce. A second version of the experiment is planned and will look for signatures in visible instead of infrared light, which would help to support the conclusion that half of stars occupy intergalactic space. If the models hold up, then I wonder what impact this will have on other models describing the evolution of the Universe, its energy budget, and especially dark matter given the implication that half of a given galaxy’s stars (mass) may have been ejected and the implications this has for the conservation of galactic angular momentum. 

5. Autodesk CAD Software now Evolves 3D Designs.
I’ve always been a big fan of software using evolutionary principles to design real and virtual objects and materials. Autodesk’s new Dreamcatcher CAD software represents the latest development in the space http://www.technologyreview.com/news/532126/software-designs-products-by-simulating-evolution/. A user or designer first adds basic design goals into Dreamcatcher such as a starting model, materials, performance criteria, and cost constraints. The software then mutates and breeds many generations of solutions based on this information, often producing innovative and creative designs that a human would never have thought of. As a basic demonstration Dreamcatcher designed a rear-suspension component for a motorcycle that is currently undergoing road testing. I really think the applications for such evolved generative designs are limitless; we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface. 

6. Sirtuin Anti-Aging Drugs Showing (More Credible) Promise.
Prominent researcher David Sinclair and his group continue to generate data and evidence for the promise of sirtuin drugs and pathways in combating aging and age-related illnesses, press release here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-11-04/scientists-reverse-ageing-process-in-mice/5865714, publication here: http://www.cell.com/cell-reports/abstract/S2211-1247%2814%2900065-5. The latest results demonstrated that a particular sirtuin 1 activator resulted in (i) extension of mean lifespan of mice fed a standard diet, (ii) improved healthspan of mice fed a standard diet, (iii) reduction in age-associated risk factors for metabolic disease, and (iv) anti-inflammatory properties in target tissues. Human clinical trials have so far demonstrated the molecules are safe for use in humans. Quote: We've discovered genes that control how the body fights against ageing and these genes, if you turn them on just the right way, they can have very powerful effects, even reversing ageing. 

7. Highjacking Existing Gene Networks to Mass Produce Drugs.
Producing large amounts of complex bio-synthesised compounds can be difficult and one way to do this is to identify and hack an existing organism that already produces large amounts of a complex compound. Researchers have discovered a particular fungus that happens to produce large amounts of the compound equisetin in particular environments (and food sources); by swapping two genes out of the equisetin-production pathway for genes from another organism involved in synthesis of their drug candidate of interest (an anti-TB molecule) they produced an engineered fungus that synthesises large, useful amounts of drug when grown in a conveniently controllable environment http://phys.org/news/2014-11-rewriting-natural-drug-compounds.html. Splicing synthetic gene pathways into an organism like this typically only produces small amounts of your molecule of interest; it is surprising that not more work has been done to build up a library of organisms and pathways that can be conveniently hacked in this manner to produce large amounts. 

8. Producing Nanodiamond Films with Pulsed Lasers.
A new technique called confined pulse laser deposition uses, as the name implies, laser pulses to convert regions of confined graphite (layered graphene) into a graphitic plasma that quickly solidifies into a nanodiamond diamond film http://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/releases/2014/Q4/direct-writing-of-diamond-patterns-from-graphite-a-potential-technological-leap.html. This allows for arbitrary nanodiamond patterns to be directly written onto surfaces and all without the need for high temperatures and high pressures that normal synthetic diamond production usually entails. In related news this week graphene was (i) successfully used to create a new p-n junction architecture http://phys.org/news/2014-11-single-sheet-graphene-p-n-junction-gates.html, and (ii) combined with nanopores and optical antennas to enable better DNA nanopore sequencing http://phys.org/news/2014-11-unique-graphene-nanopores-optical-antennas.html. 

9. Trapping A Rainbow on Silicon.
Until this week it was only possible to completely trap light in a Bose-Einstein condensate at ultra-low temperatures. Now, by building on optical theories a group of researchers has managed to directly engineer a Goos-Hӓnchen effect (where the point of reflection of a light beam shifts due to interfering with itself) with a negative value large enough to stop and trap a beam of light https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/first-experimental-demonstration-of-a-trapped-rainbow-using-silicon-795ff204385e. This was accomplished with a silicon interference grating placed on silica in which changes in grating spacing allows trapping of light of different wavelengths, and in this way allows a gradient of different spacings to tease and trap a rainbow of light. Control of such a phenomena should allow optical buffers, optical signal processing, and optical computers. 

10. SCNT vs IPS Stem Cells.
A recent study suggests that the method of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) produces better stem cells than the method of induced (reprogrammed) pluripotency (IPS) https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2014/11/suggesting-that-scnt-is-better-than-induced-pluripotency-for-producing-cells-for-therapy.php. SCNT is difficult and used nowhere near as often as the very popular and more recently developed IPS technique. While copy-number variations were similar to both, whereas the DNA methylation profiles of IPS cells differed substantially from embryonic stem cells and SCNT stem cells, and more closely resembled the DNA methylation patterns of their parent somatic cells. While IPS cells are still expected to have great utility in coming years, SCNT cells are the ideal option if possible for cell therapies due to their being faithfully reprogrammed. This result might also encourage the development of better IPS reprogramming techniques to more faithfully produce better stem cells.

Learn About Artificial Intelligence, and You'll Write Better

You just never know where you're going to learn something. I just learned about simplifying my writing from an article about artificial intelligence. This one is a fascinating look at some really exciting news from Google's stealthy DeepMind acquisition.

The heart of the lesson has to do with how the human mind stores information in memory:
 
"Miller’s striking conclusion was that the capacity of short-term memory cannot be defined by the amount of information it contains. Instead Miller concluded that the working memory stores information in the form of “chunks” and that it could hold approximately seven of them."

"That raises the curious question: what is a chunk? In Miller’s experiments, a chunk could be a single digit such as a 4, a single letter such as a q, a single word or a small group of words that together have some specific meaning. So each chunk can represent anything from a very small amount of information to a hugely complex idea that is equivalent to large amounts of information."

"But however much information a single chunk represents, the human brain can store only about seven of them in its working memory."

"Here is an example. Consider the following sentence: “This book is a thrilling read with a complex plot and lifelike characters.”

"This sentence consists of around seven chunks of information and is clearly manageable for any ordinary reader."

"By contrast, try this sentence: “This book about the Roman Empire during the first years of Augustus Caesar’s reign at the end of the Roman Republic, describes the events following the bloody Battle of Actium in 31 BC when the young emperor defeated Mark Antony and Cleopatra by comprehensively outmaneuvering them in a major naval engagement.”

"This sentence contains at least 20 chunks. So if you found it more difficult to read, that shouldn’t be a surprise. The human brain has trouble holding this many chunks in its working memory."

So, that's why keeping your sentences to less than seven chunks of information is important. But then, how do we go on to construct more complex understandings beyond just a sentence? 

"Miller’s answer is that the brain uses a trick known as a recoding. Let’s go back to our example of the book and add another sentence: “This book is a thrilling read with a complex plot and lifelike characters. It is clearly worth the cover price.”

"Once you have read and understood the first sentence, your brain stores those seven chunks in a way that is available as a single chunk in the next sentence. In this second sentence, the pronoun “it” is this single chunk. Our brain automatically knows that “it” means: “the book that is a thrilling read with a complex plot and lifelike characters.” It has recoded the seven earlier chunks into a single chunk."

See. It pays to pay attention to artificial intelligence. You just never know what you might learn. :-)

Transitions between states of matter: It's more complicated, scientists find

The seemingly simple process of phase changes—those transitions between states of matter—is more complex than previously known, according to research based at Princeton University, Peking University and New York University.

Their study, which appears in the journal Science, reveals the need to rethink one of science’s building blocks and, with it, how some of the basic principles underlying the behavior of matter are taught in our classrooms. The researchers examined the way that a phase change, specifically the melting of a solid, occurs at a microscopic level and discovered that the transition is far more involved than earlier models had accounted for.

“This research shows that phase changes can follow multiple pathways, which is counter to what we’ve previously known,” explains Mark Tuckerman, a professor of chemistry and applied mathematics at New York University and one of the study’s co-authors. “This means the simple theories about phase transitions that we teach in classes are just not right.”

According to Tuckerman, scientists will need to change the way they think of and teach on phase changes.

"Basically, the British researchers have taken a chalcogenide glass — which are always p-type semiconductors — and managed to turn it into an n-type semiconductor. (In this case, they germanium telluride (GeTe) and ionically doped it with bismuth to create an n-type). This allowed them to build a p-n junction — the primary building block of almost every semiconductor device, from transistors to LEDs to photovoltaic cells."___ #LightBasedComputing   #OpticalComputing   #ChalcogenideGlass   #Computers   #CPU   #PhaseChangeMaterials   #MaterialsScience   #Science   #Technology   #SciTek

Omega-3 could help reduce cravings to smoke

Taking omega-3 supplements reduces craving for nicotine and even reduces the number of cigarettes that people smoke a day, a new study suggests. "The substances and medications used currently to help people reduce and quit smoking are not very effective and cause adverse effects that are not easy to cope with. The findings of this study indicated that omega-3, an inexpensive and easily available dietary supplement with almost no side effects, reduces smoking significantly," said the study's lead investigator.

Mindfulness has a positive physical impact at the cellular level in breast cancer survivors

For the first time, researchers have shown that practising mindfulness meditation or being involved in a support group has a positive physical impact at the cellular level in breast cancer survivors.

A group working out of Alberta Health Services' Tom Baker Cancer Centre and the University of Calgary Department of Oncology has demonstrated that telomeres -- protein complexes at the end of chromosomes -- maintain their length in breast cancer survivors who practise meditation or are involved in support groups, while they shorten in a comparison group without any intervention.
