I separated the active and inactive members, put the active members into a science circle, and I am sharing this circle.

The three things that I like about this circle are: (a) the content, (b) self-selection- people added themselves to the circle and (c) it's somewhat transparent. Unlike many of the shared circles on Google+ where you do not know what you are getting until you import the circle, you can quickly get a glimpse of this circle by looking at the database.Please feel free to share this circle with your Science-minded friends.

Love me love my microbiome : Some researchers are now considering the microbiome as a separate organ.  What is the microbiome really? The human microbiome is the is the sum total of microorganisms, that resides in the skin, saliva, GI tract, in fact all over and inside the body. They include bacteria, fungi, and archaea. Some of these organisms perform tasks that are useful for us. However, the majority have been too poorly researched for us to understand the role they play.

How does it all work? : We used to think our relationship with bacteria was simple; there were good ones that kept our digestive tracts healthy and there were bad ones that made us sick. We now know that many bacteria can play both roles, living happily in us or on us as part of a healthy microbiome, but capable of turning nasty under certain conditions. Now there are claims that a truly villainous bacterium... more »

Both rectangles are moving at constant speed

At least that's what the creator of this illusion says!  It looks like the yellow and blue rectangles are taking turns going forward - one step at a time.

This is an illusion that's so good it's hard to believe it's an illusion. When the black and white lines disappear, it's easy to see the rectangles are moving at constant speed.  But before that they seem to be taking turns, and pausing when they reach each new line.

Could the creator of this illusion be cheating - fooling you into thinking there's an illusion?   How can you tell, except by making your own version of this animated gif?

Hide one rectangle with your hand.  Then look closely at the other.  Try not to look at the black and white lines.  I think you'll see the rectangle is moving at constant speed.

Both rectangles are moving at constant speed

At least that's what the creator of this illusion says!  It looks like the yellow and blue rectangles are taking turns going forward - one step at a time.

This is an illusion that's so good it's hard to believe it's an illusion. When the black and white lines disappear, it's easy to see the rectangles are moving at constant speed.  But before that they seem to be taking turns, and pausing when they reach each new line.

Could the creator of this illusion be cheating - fooling you into thinking there's an illusion?   How can you tell, except by making your own version of this animated gif?

Hide one rectangle with your hand.  Then look closely at the other.  Try not to look at the black and white lines.  I think you'll see the rectangle is moving at constant speed.

But if you look away, and watch the rectangle with your peripheral vision, it will seem to move in steps.

We don't just "see what's there".  We construct a mental model of reality from sensory data.  We need  to do this.  But people can manipulate this. 

It's not optical illusions we need to worry about.  It's political illusions, economic illusions, social illusions.  We think we're just seeing what's there... but we're actually constructing a model of reality.  And politicians and other people are busy trying to shape your model, so you'll do what they want.  Escaping their illusions is much, much harder than escaping this optical illusion.

You can probably think of many examples of other  people who are fooled by politicians, ideologies, doctrines and dogmas.   Now list the ways in which you are being fooled.

Oh, you think you're better than average?  Join the club.

Puzzle 1: name the biggest way you've been fooled by a cultural, political or religious illusion.

Puzzle 2: name a way you're just starting to realize that you're being fooled by such an illusion.

For Puzzle 2, it should be just as hard to really believe you're being fooled as it is with this optical illusion.  For example: I'm just starting to realize that I've been fooled into wanting to be a 'bigshot': well-known, and seemingly 'important'.  But it's hard to break out of this belief.  Even now, I'm trying to get you to pay attention to me.  I'm sorry - at least I try to make it worth your while.

Do you have digital eye strain?

Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is strain on the eyes that happens when you use a computer for prolonged periods of time. Anyone who has spent a few hours on the computer has probably felt some of the effects of prolonged use of the computer or other digital technology. It is temporary, and usually goes away on its own – however, the discomfort it causes can be minimized by following a few simple practices.

Medical Mistakes are 3rd Leading Cause of Death in U.S.

Preventable medical errors in hospitals are the third leading cause of death in the United States, a Senate panel was told today. Only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans.

The Journal of Patient Safety recently published a study which concluded that as many as 440,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors in hospitals. Tens of thousands also die from preventable mistakes outside hospitals, such as deaths from missed diagnoses or because of injuries from medications.

Spectrum of theistic probability
Popularized by Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion, the spectrum of theistic probability is a way of categorizing one's belief regarding the probability of the existence of a deity.

Cell Reproduction

Interphase: Period of growth and replication of DNA. (90% of cell’s life). 
G1 Phase: Period of regular growth; mitochondria and chloroplasts multiply.  
Synthesis: DNA is replicated (semi-conservative replication).
G2 Phase: Another period of growth in preparation of dividing. 

Prophase: Nuclear membrane breaks down, DNA condenses, spindle fibers appear. 

Metaphase: Chromosomes align and attached to spindle fibers. 

Anaphase: Sister chromatids (DNA) are split apart to either pole of the cell by the pulling of spindle fibers. 

Telophase: Nuclear membrane forms around DNA, chromosomes decondense, spindle fibers break down.

Anaphase: Sister chromatids (DNA) are split apart to either pole of the cell by the pulling of spindle fibers. 

Telophase: Nuclear membrane forms around DNA, chromosomes decondense, spindle fibers break down. 

Cytokineses: Cytoplasm divides. 

And the new cells start the cell cycle once more!

Life After #Cancer : Survivorship By the Numbers.

The American Cancer Society defines a cancer survivor as anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is still alive. And according to our latest reports on cancer survivorship and treatment statistics, produced in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute, there are nearly 14.5 million cancer survivors living in the United States today, and that number is projected to grow significantly by 2024.

This infographic illustrates findings from the Cancer Treatment & Survivorship Facts & Figures 2014-2015, that show the growing number of cancer survivors, the probable reasons for that growth, as well as steps you can take to understand and help support the continuing needs of cancer survivors.

We now know that many bacteria can play both roles, living happily in us or on us as part of a healthy microbiome, but capable of turning nasty under certain conditions. Now there are claims that a truly villainous bacterium – Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes TB – is actually symbiotic and helped us evolve our large brains.

Your mobile phone carries your microbiome : James Meadow and colleagues from University of Oregon used DNA sequencing to compare bacteria living on the skin of smartphone users with those living on their phones. “We found that we each have more bacteria in common with our own phones than with anyone else’s,” Dr Meadow said. “This opens up the possibility that we might be able to use this biological connection to understand more about the microbes that are carried around on our bodies and on our personal effects.”  (Article source: http://goo.gl/KZr4Au and related paper https://peerj.com/articles/447/ )

You share your microbiomes with your pets : Well dogs at least.... A new study finds that families share skin, tongue and gut microbes with each other... and their dogs. The study shows how the people and pets you live with affect the microscopic bacteria, fungi and other creatures living all over your body. As with other family members, adults share more microbes with their own dogs than they do with other people's dogs. But the researchers also found that simply owning a dog seems to have an effect on overall microbe-sharing. Cohabiting couples shared more microbes with one another if they had a dog, compared with couples that didn't have dogs. Dog owners also had more species in common with other dog owners than they did with puppy-less people. ( Popsci source: http://goo.gl/kxjyfs )

Soil microbiomes can set plant flowering times : Scientists grew plants in soil inoculated with microbes to study the flowering time phenotype. Researchers wanted to learn more about the impact of soil, and specifically of the microbial communities in soil, on a plant's flowering time. Flowering time has been known to been affected by factors such as temperature, water availability and pathogens, and the team wondered if microbes could also affect this particular trait in a plant's phenotype.

Searching for Sugar Man

If you watch just one documentary this year (or month, or week -depending on how often you watch them), make it this one. In the late 1960s, amidst the height of the apartheid in South Africa, a bootleg recording of an album titled 'Cold Fact' by a mysterious American artist known as Rodriguez suddenly became a phenomenon. But his album failed miserably in America, and there were rumours about a gruesome onstage suicide - one in which he set fire to himself. After that, he disappeared into oblivion. But two South African fans turned into musical detectives to find out more about what really happened to him. The story is incredible, with an unbelievable plot-twist. I won't give it away, but it is a humbling, poignant story that was gripping from start to finish.

24, the Monster, and quantum gravity

Think of a prime number other than 2 or 3. Multiply the number by itself and then subtract 1. The result is a multiple of 24. This observation might appear to be a curiosity, but it turns out to be the tip of an iceberg, with far-reaching connections to other areas of mathematics and physics.

This result works for more than just prime numbers. It works for any number that is relatively prime to 24. For example, 25 is relatively prime to 24, because the only positive number that is a factor of both of them is 1. (An easy way to check this is to notice that 25 is not a multiple of 2, or 3, or both.) Squaring 25 gives 625, and 624=(24x26)+1.

A mathematician might state this property of the number 24 as follows:

24, the Monster, and quantum gravity

Think of a prime number other than 2 or 3. Multiply the number by itself and then subtract 1. The result is a multiple of 24. This observation might appear to be a curiosity, but it turns out to be the tip of an iceberg, with far-reaching connections to other areas of mathematics and physics.

This result works for more than just prime numbers. It works for any number that is relatively prime to 24.

(An easy way to check this is to notice that 25 is not a multiple of 2, or 3, or both.) Squaring 25 gives 625, and 624=(24x26)+1.

A mathematician might state this property of the number 24 as follows:
If m is relatively prime to 24, then m^2 is congruent to 1 modulo 24.
One might ask if any numbers other than 24 have this property. The answer is “yes”, but the only other numbers that exhibit this property are 12, 8, 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1; in other words, the factors of 24.

The mathematicians John H. Conway and Simon P. Norton used this property of 24 in their seminal 1979 paper entitled Monstrous Moonshine. In the paper, they refer to this property as “the defining property of 24”. The word “monstrous” in the title is a reference to the Monster group, which can be thought of as a collection of more than 8x10^53 symmetries; that is, 8 followed by 53 other digits. The word “moonshine” refers to the perceived craziness of the intricate relationship between the Monster group and the theory of modular functions.

The existence of the Monster group, M, was not proved until shortly after Conway and Norton wrote their paper. It turns out that the easiest way to think of M in terms of symmetries of a vector space over the complex numbers is to use a vector space of dimension 196883. This number is close to another number that is related to the Leech lattice. The Leech lattice can be thought of as a stunningly efficient way to pack unit spheres together in 24 dimensional space. In this arrangement, each sphere will touch 196560 others. The closeness of the numbers 196560 and 196883 is not a coincidence and can be explained using the theory of monstrous moonshine.

It is now known that lying behind monstrous moonshine is a certain conformal field theory having the Monster group as symmetries. In 2007, the physicist Edward Witten proposed a connection between monstrous moonshine and quantum gravity. Witten concluded that pure gravity with maximally negative cosmological constant is dual to the Monster conformal field theory. This theory predicts a value for the semiclassical entropy estimate for a given black hole mass, in the large mass limit. Witten's theory estimates the value of this quantity as the natural logarithm of 196883, which works out at about 12.19. As a comparison, the work of Jacob Bekenstein and Stephen Hawking gives an estimate of 4π, which is about 12.57.

Mice That Feel Less Pain Live Longer

Scientists have found a way to beat back the hands of time and fight the ravages of old age, at least in mice. A new study finds that mice bred without a specific pain sensor, or receptor, live longer and are less likely to develop diseases such as diabetes in old age. What’s more, exposure to a molecule found in chili peppers and other spicy foods may confer the same benefits as losing this pain receptor—meaning that humans could potentially benefit, too.

When you touch something hot or get a nasty paper cut, pain receptors in your skin are activated, causing neurons to relay a message to your brain: “Ouch!” Although pain protects your body from damage, it also causes harm. People who experience chronic pain, for example, are more likely to have shorter lifespans, but the reason for this has remained unclear.

People who experience chronic pain, for example, are more likely to have shorter lifespans, but the reason for this has remained unclear.

To investigate further, researchers from the University of California (UC), Berkeley, bred mice without a pain receptor called TRPV1. Found in the skin, nerves, and joints, it’s known to be activated by the spicy compound found in chili peppers, known as capsaicin. (When you feel like your mouth is burning after eating a jalapeño, that’s TRPV1 at work.) Surprisingly, the mice without TRPV1 lived on average 14% longer than their normal counterparts, the team reports  in Cell.

TEM of T2 Bacteriophage viruses attacking bacterial cells of Escherichia coli.

In the three color-enhanced Transmission Electron Micrograph images, it can be seen virus particles, each with a head and a tail "sitting" on bacterial cells of E.coli. In which genetic material is injected into the bacterium.
As known, bacteriophages can be said to be the parasites of bacterial cells. The virus normally attaches itself to the cell's wall and, using its tail as a syringe, injects its own DNA into the bacterium. The virus DNA then takes over the bacterial cell, forcing it to produce more viruses(orange) as seen in the first image inside the bacterial cell(green).
