Super Cool Science Contributors Circle

I'm creating a new science circle in about 24 hrs. If you like science, then in order to be in the science circle, you must:
Create a public post on YOUR profile about something sciency
Hashtag it with #ILoveScience and LINK to the post here in the comments (simply right click the date of the post and select copy link).

I will take the first 100 people who do it.. compile you up into a SCIENCE circle and share it out. This should give you a few additional science followers. It would then be super awesome if you were in the circle, if you share it out.. because it will truly be a SCIENCE circle... but thats not required. Hopefully this will encourage you to also post about science.. so your new found circles will like interacting with you...

The Day in Science - 18th February

1. Why does the brain remember dreams?
Some people recall a dream every morning, whereas others rarely recall one. In a new study, research shows that the temporo-parietal junction, an information-processing hub in the brain, is more active in high dream recallers. Increased activity in this brain region might facilitate attention orienting toward external stimuli and promote intrasleep wakefulness, thereby facilitating the encoding of dreams in memory.

Add up this amazing geek circle from +Amanda Blain . Gonna do one of these for my science circles too, if that's ok.

*IAmGeek Circle Of Amazing - Add These Geeks to Your Stream*

Wow! A targeted active and engaged circle of Geeks here on G+. Each and every single one of these fine people shared a post about Whatever it is they are geeky about with the hashtag #IAmGeek . I read and commented on posts about space, zombies, video games, people growing up as geeks, sci fi books,  Mobile phones, neuroscience, Dr Who, Anime, and lots more.  (check out the links to the posts here -https://plus.google.com/u/0/107982618909749811163/posts/hb5jfJS3Gmo)

The #IAmGeek  Hashtag trended for most of yesterday. Several people include one post from someone brand new to G+ (less than 100 followers) hit the what's hot list(https://plus.google.com/u/0/107348276687585876026/posts/EuAeicWFVaW), and there were TONS of interactions from the people in this circle, commenting on others posts who used the hashtag.... Awesome!

A great experiment and success if you ask me. Proof Circle shares still matter if you spend some time on it. So if you want some more geek in your stream.. why not add this circle up?  If your in the circle, why not share it to reach more geek fans( and why not share another #IAmGeek  post today or later this week :) ) 

And if i managed to miss you some how.. my apologizes.. There was a lot of stuff happening at once and errors are made. I promise I don't hate you :)

Amazing stuff from +Buddhini Samarasinghe

Why Don't Naked Mole Rats get Cancer?

Naked mole rats are the most fascinating of creatures. There are many reasons I say this, but today I want to focus on one particular feature about them that is just an amazing example of how weird and wonderful they are. Naked mole rats are extremely resistant to cancer - tumors have never been observed in them. How on earth do they manage this?

✤ Before I explain the exact mechanism, we need to go over some basics. A tumor is an aggregation of cells. Cells generally don't like to be too close to each other - in the lab, if a petri-dish has too many cells on it, the overcrowding makes them stop growing. We call this contact inhibition. The cells sense that they are too close to each other and secrete signaling molecules into their surroundings known as anti-growth factors. These molecules signal the cells to stop dividing. I explained this pathway in detail here: http://goo.gl/BsRgR5. Cancer happens when this mechanism fails.

✤ If cancer happens when contact inhibition fails, then it logically follows that enhanced contact inhibition should mean even more cancer resistance. Bingo - that is exactly what happens with naked mole rat cells. These cells are hypersensitive to contact inhibition, which is what makes them so resistant to cancer.

✤ Our cells also have a mechanism for contact inhibition, and yet we are unfortunately more than capable of developing cancer. This begs the question, what is so special about naked mole rat cells that makes them so hypersensitive to contact inhibition?

✤ It turns out that naked mole rat cells have an additional mechanism to make them hypersensitive to contact inhibition. Our cells rely on a protein known as p27 to halt cell division by putting the brakes on the cell cycle. Naked mole rat cells, on the other hand, use p27 for regular contact inhibition just like we do and another protein known as p16 for early contact inhibition. The naked mole rat cells have the same genes we do (we both have p27 and p16) but their functions are distinct; for naked mole rats, p16 functions as the 'early brake' while p27 functions as the 'backup brake'. There are other differences between our cells and naked mole rat cells, but this is the primary mechanism by which they evade cancer.

I find this work fascinating, not just because it features the awesome naked mole rat, but because it explains the molecular mechanism of why naked mole rats don't get cancer. It also shows how the same genes are capable of vastly different functions in different species; although the naked mole rat's anticancer defense strategy evolved separately to us, our cells carry the same tools.

Doesn't get better than this...

D-wave quantum computer being used with Google Glass

Wow - using quantum computing to detect the difference between an intentional wink and an involuntary one. I had to check if it was April 1st today. 

The first practical application has been on Google Glass, as engineers put the quantum chips to work on Glass's blink detector, helping it to better distinguish between intentional winks and involuntary blinks. For engineering reasons, the quantum processor can never be installed in Glass, but it can provide the computing power to create a better blink-detecting algorithm that would allow the conventional Glass processor to perform more effectively. If successful, it could be an important breakthrough for wink-triggered apps, which have struggled with the task so far.
