Marlo Angelo Tito0Andrey (AstouNDing Rig of thE noteworthY )Themed Circle: I delayed the share of TV/Music/Movie circle because I think i need more people in it. So people, if you post stuffs like Music, TV and Movies (SciFi, etc.), just tell me in the comments if you want to be included in the TV/Music/Movie circle. Motivation/Inspiration is still also open!Anyways, this is circle Andrey and it's supposed to be named as Andrej but I cant find any amazing words that has j in it! (lol) Well, they're still pronounced the same though so better use the 'y' instead. ;-DWell this circle is filled with normal folks here in G+. And yes, that is your definition of normal :-). Since this is not a themed circle or whatsoever, this circle has a pretty great mix as it shows a great diversity among the people. As I am done introducing these folks to you, you're gonna have to add them to know more! :-D SongS for the Week! The Killers- BootsTalain Rayne- 16 [HD]Have a nice day, everyone! :-DAnd God Bless :-) #Circle   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #sharingcircles   #sharingiscaring   #add   #addmetoyourcircles   #justanaverageteenagerwhoexpresseshisopinionsovertheinternetcircle  2014-04-20 16:00:2232510083122CC G+

Marlo Angelo Tito83,357April (A PRecious cIrcLe)Happy April Fools Day! :-DTHEMED CIRCLESo guys, the humor circle will be shared in less more or less, 8 days and this is the final call for the humor circle . I only have like 3 people in it. So if you are in the category of Humor/Tv and Movie and Music, just tell me in the comments! TV/Movie/Music circle is the third themed circle.So this is circle April and it's a bit of a coincidence that she got released on the first day of April. Well I wasn't expecting though that this circle will have a huge change of relevance in this circle (although there is a very little change at the cover but the rest of is just.. (whoosh). Although this is a pre-reboot circle, I did not remove anyone from this edition.Well this circle is filled with normal folks here in G+. And yes, that is your definition of normal :-). Since this is not a themed circle or whatsoever, this circle has a pretty great mix as it shows a great diversity among the people. As I am done introducing these folks to you, you're gonna have to add them to know more! :-D SongS for the Week!"Open Roads" by Stacey RandolThe XX - IslandsHave a nice day, everyone! :-DAnd God Bless :-) #Circle   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #add   #addcircle   #addpeople   #sharingiscaring   #sharingmeansthankyou   #justanaverageteenagerwhoexpresseshisopinionsovertheinternetcircle2014-04-01 14:06:48331130113164CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321214692CC G+

Sustainable buildings : And the winner is...... wood. I'm not surprised. I did post about this earlier (http://goo.gl/gVzmha) and +Arturo Gutierrez asked me about sustainability. Around a month later, and I have some answers. Though this is still a work in progress, we are getting to know much more as we go along...

Article Extract: The World's cities will need to accommodate an additional 2.4 billion people by 2050, according to the World Health Organization, and a growing number of architects think those residents could live in wooden skyscrapers. Every cubic meter of wood sequesters 1 ton of carbon from the atmosphere. Compared with concrete and steel, building with lumber would reduce emissions by up to 81 percent, says architect Michael Green, who will complete construction on British Columbia's Wood Innovation and Design Centre in September. The finished structure is... more »

The Neuroscientist Who Wants To Upload Humanity To A Computer : Transhumanism is something which has made its way into popular culture. But there is a real and serious push for understanding how one achieve singularity. And there are serious people with loads of research funding who are in the race. Both the Obama BRAIN Initiative and the EU Human Brain Project are in the running. While the reality may still be a decade away, the journey is fascinating indeed.

Article Extract: ''As a species, we really only inhabit a small sliver of time and space,''Koene said when he took the stage. ''We want a species that can be effective and influential and creative in a much larger sphere.'' Koene's planned to upload his brain to a computer. By mapping the brain, reducing its activity to computations, and reproducing those computations in code, Koene argued, humans... more »

Hey, not to be pulling another plug here (coughs), but did you know that if you have Amazon Prime you can read CHIMERAS for free through the Kindle Landing Library ? So, what are you waiting for? Click!! :-)

What people are saying :

"Classic hard-boiled noir crime thriller sculpted by lovely prose and set in the present, this is a surprisingly terrific read." -- Cole Alpaugh, author of The Bear in a Muddy Tutu and The Spy's Little Zonbi

"I was intrigued by the opening, and the questions I had kept me intrigued as the investigation unfolded. E. E. Giorgi writes some truly gorgeous prose, and I felt like I was experiencing everything right along with Track." -- Autumn Kalquist, author of The Legacy Code

Cymatics : While this is not new, we have all seen the gifs showing powders and particles which have been arranged in geometric patterns based on the frequency of the vibration applied to plates. As early as 1680, Robert Hooke observed nodal patterns made on glass plates based on modes of vibration. More recently, Jun Rekimoto a researcher at the University of Tokyo has built a device which levitates objects using just sound, and for the first time used it to maneuver them using sound. Read on to know more on the science behind Cymatics!

Article Extract: Physicists have levitated milli­meter-sized objects by trapping them in pockets of low pressure between the crest of one sound wave and the trough of another. But moving those suspended objects has been difficult. Rekimoto’s team set up four arrays of speakers pointed at the center of a half-meter-wide chamber. Once the researchers gotan... more »

Pcells... Smithsonianmag checks the claim : Steve Perlman promises a lot... and if true, the disruptive technology will run counter to how networks work currently. DIDO technology is something which could be a game changer. But will the wireless service providers adopt it? Only time will tell. In the meantime, read on....

Checking The Claim: A Wireless Network That Streams A Thousand Times Faster? : The demand for data, which doubled in the past year, is expected to multiply by a factor of 25 by 2020. While that year may seem far off, carriers are already scrambling to ease the growing congestion. Entrepreneur Steve Perlman's proposed solution, developed over the past decade, is a radically different solution. Instead of spacing out cellular sites so they can send and receive signals with less interruption within a defined radius, his pCell technology is designed toactually t... more »

An Idea worth writing about : I had an idea. A story arc which a lot of people here on Google plus may have guessed I was developing. While it is slightly longer than my usual flash fiction, it is something I thought which people would enjoy reading.... see the blogpost here: http://www.lacerantplainer.com/2014/04/an-idea-worth-writing-about.html

Literally eating people alive : No kidding. We have heard of Naeglaria fowleri, the brain eating amoeba found in water. Now there is new research that shows that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica , which was earlier thought to kill human cells by toxins, actually eats them while they are still alive.

Article Extract: It used to be thought that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica killed human cells with toxins and only ate them once they were dead--and that during its meals, it would eat cells by engulfing them whole, like other amoebas. But a new study shows that these parasites instead chomp on human cells while they are still alive, taking little bites until the cells die and then moving on.

“This process of nibbling of cells went unrecognized by everyone in this field, including me, for over a hundred years,” study co-author and infectious disease specialistWilliam... more »

While astronomers look at the lunar eclipse (already started) : A whole new drama is ongoing. NASA's  LADEE may well crash into the moon soon, or may get affected by the lunar eclipse and it's propulsion system could freeze and burst. Though current predictions are that it will survive. Scientists know that LADEE's days are numbered. But it has already achieved it's mission profile. (See more on the eclipse here from +NASA : http://goo.gl/pXBsyL )

Article Extract: Scientists have no delusions about the fate of NASA's LADEE robotic probe, which has been exploring the shroud of dust and the trace gases that surround the Moon. On April 21, if not sooner, the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer will crash into the surface of the Moon and vaporise. But before its demise, scientists hope to break new ground by flying LADEE literally just above the ground.... more »

Air to space launches : Even before the Space Shuttle was planned, humans have dreamed of launching spacecraft from aircraft. While the Shuttle was but one stepping stone in the development of tech, we are closer than ever to achieving Air to space launch. +DARPA, +European Space Agency, ESA and even +Virgin are looking at tests which are currently underway and may see the light of day in the next year or two. Why is this important? The huge cost of putting something up in orbit is something people are looking to vitiate. By ingenious methods.

Article Extract: Airborne Launch Assist Space Access (ALASA) is a project of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Like NASA’s Nanosatellite Launch Challenge, ALASA hopes to develop a reliable, cost-effective launcher for small satellites. DARPA’s definition of “small” is a bit different, though. The NASA challenge istargeti... more »

Cats control humans : Well, this is not really news. Any cat owner knows this is true. And science has already shown us how the cat's cry is very similar to a human baby's cry. The same demanding vocalization is seen by researchers. Though that is not where it stops. Some of the findings of The Secret Life of Cats undertaken by the BBC folks is amusing if not amazing :)

Article Extract: If you've ever wondered who's in control, you or your cat, it's obvious. It's your cat. Household cats exercise this control with a certain type of urgent-sounding, high-pitched meow. This meow is actually a purr mixed with a high-pitched cry. While people usually think of cat purring as a sign of happiness, some cats make this purr-cry sound when they want to be fed.

What does a fruit fly have in common with the world's most advanced fighter jets like the US Air Force's F-22 Raptor? More than you might think. : The fruit fly is a model organism (See http://goo.gl/NiCs5a ) and researchers have been studying it's flight for a long time. The escape response is a reflex action and now scientists are seeing how they bank and turn with amazing dexterity. It does not surprise me at all. Incidentally the fruit fly is also the inspiration for the micro UAVs with flapping wings ( See http://goo.gl/3O3sFm )

Article Extract: Scientists using video cameras to track a fly's aerial manoeuvres found the insect employs astonishingly quick mid-air banked turns to evade predators much like a fighter jet executes to elude an enemy. Their study, published in the journal Science, documents aerial agility in fruit flies such as the capacity to begin to change... more »

How water does most of the dirty work for acids : Acids are corrosive to the skin and even to metals. But when you look into the chemistry of how it works, you realize that acids don't tear down things by themselves. All they do is provide water a way to break things down.

Article Extract: Acids don't tear things apart on their own; all they do is put a chink in the electron armour surrounding molecules. But that chink is enough to let water molecules reach the chemical bonds inside, and that's where things like skin and metals go all to pieces.

With its two hydrogens flanking one oxygen atom, the electron cloud around water has a fat bulge around the middle, and fairly sparse coverage of the hydrogen nuclei around the ends. So water molecules are like a boomerang with a negative bend in the middle and two positive ends. That negative oxygen 'corner' is what... more »

Quantum Tornados And Kelvin Waves : Anyone who has drained a bathtub knows that it forms a spinning 'tornado'. Faster spinning water creates a vortex, which is one of the first introductions to classical mechanics. Now researchers have observed quantum tornadoes, which display 'reconnection' and develop ripples called Kelvin waves. Read on to know more!

Article Extract: In a bathtub, as water is drained, a vortex appears. Yet if the water is extremely cold liquid helium, the fluid will swirl around an invisible line to form a vortex that obeys the laws of quantum mechanics. Sometimes, two of these quantum tornadoes flex into curved lines, cross over one another to form a letter X shape, swap ends, and then violently retract from one another—a process called reconnection.

Computer simulations have suggested that after the vortexes snap away from each other, theyd... more »

Micro-Flyer That "Swims" in the air : Unlike most microflyers, this one is not inspired from aircraft or dragonflies or fruit flies. The microflyer created by researchers at New York University swims like a jellyfish though the air, rather than looking at bird or insect flight. While this is not practically for carrying humans, the flight is very stable for hovering and can be used in applications which will require this quality.

Article Extract: Lief Ristroph and Stephen Childress of New York University have taken an alternate route around evolution's highway: They've created a miniature flying machine that moves not like a bird or insect, but a jellyfish. Rather than flapping its four wings up and down, this micro-ornithopter's wings use a swimming motion, opening and closing its wings in order to ascend, descend, and hover.

The Microbial world : In a number of senses, the Earth belongs to microbes. They have existed since life was first here. And they continue to exist and thrive on our planet. They are most likely to survive any extinction event. We depend on them for life (see link on gut microbiota) and living things depend on them. More than we can imagine. They are our true overlords. 

A teaspoon of dirt contains 50 billion microbes, more than seven times the number of people on Earth. Yet despite such abundance, scientists know little about the microbial ecosystem. We understand less about the bugs in our home, for example, than the animals in the deepest ocean trenches. We know even less about their impact on us. (http://goo.gl/ckf8Z6)

Zebra Stripes in the Van Allen Belt : The Van Allen Belt is a plasma (charged particles) which are held in place by the Earth's magnetic field. Most of the charged energetic particles are thought to come from solar winds and cosmic rays. These radiation belts often damage sensitive satellites, but is part of the Earth's natural magnetic shield against harmful cosmic radiation. According to new research, the' Zebra Stripe' pattern observed in the Van Allen Belt may be due to the Earth's rotation, rather than due to geomagnetic storms on the Sun as earlier theorized.

Article Extract: A weird zebra-stripe pattern discovered in Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt is generated by the planet's rotation, according to new research. The study may provide new insights into the complicated dynamics of similar belts around other planets. It also overturns previously held... more »

Material science, nanotechnology and biology meet : They really do. For some time now, since the time I read Isaac Asimov's 'Innerspace', one has been reading about the idea of self-assembly, of creating living materials and of medical nanotechnology and nanomachines.... something which would change the world as we know it. Forever. While it is still a decade away, work is on to get to a stage where at the very small scale, we will be able to manipulate these tiny machines. h/t to +Corina Marinescu for bringing up Richard Feynman in a post, which got me thinking of this....

The U.S. Quietly gives up control of the internet : Last month, I had read this article which talked about how the U.S. had plans of giving up the internet. While they 'definitely don't want to give it to the U.N., it seems like it's unclear who will control the internet in the near future.

From Popsci: Last month, the United States announced some very big news in a very boring way. The U.S. government is relinquishing its last official control over the internet. The phrasing chosen by the Department of Commerce announces its intent "to transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community."

Here's what that means. The U.S. government is giving up control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). ICANN is the body that coordinates unique names for websites, making it responsible forth... more »

Artificial Yeast Chromosome : While there have been advances in technology which allow for creation of a Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC), which has been demonstrated in E.Coli, this is the first time scientists have a chromosome of Yeast from scratch. While the artificial chromosome is a first step in many ways, it's still quite a fascinating story. Man has been engineering Yeast for a number of years. Not least for brewing. However, this new development takes it to a whole new level!

Article Extract: Humans have been engineering yeast "for thousands of years," says Jef Boeke, a researcher with New York University's medical center who is one of the world's top yeast biology experts. Yeast has been ubiquitous in science labs for decades now, studied in every possible way. But we also have an industrial relationship in engineering yeast for brewing and baking.more »

Parallel evolution and the ecological niche : Parallel evolution fascinated Charles Darwin and was one of the pillars on which he built the theory of evolution and natural selection. It is indeed quite amazing that a marsupial would evolve to fit an ecological niche which was empty. That of a top predator; much like the big cats evolved in some parts of our planet. Even now, the Fossa (http://goo.gl/LtEXdd) is a top marsupial predator in Madagascar. While the Thylacoleo was a top marsupial predator in Australia, it had enormous bite strength, more powerful than any living predator. A evolutionary niche indeed!

Marsupials are the group of mammals commonly thought of as pouched mammals (like the wallaby and kangaroo ). They give live birth, but they do not have long gestation times like placental mammals. Instead, they give birth very early and the young animal, essentially a helpless embryo... more »

The mediocre Barrier Reef : Is what has been predicted with continued acidification of the water bodies on our planet. While Coral reefs are shrinking rapidly, the warnings are dire and the 'rainforests of the seas' are in a bitter struggle for survival. Read about Symbiodinium and how they are related (and essential) to the living coral reefs.

Article Extract: Coral reefs cover less than one-tenth of one per cent of the area of the world's oceans — but they support more than 25 per cent of all creatures that live in the oceans. The Great Barrier Reef lost half of its coral cover in the 27 years between 1985 and 2012.

The Great Barrier Reef stretches some 2600 km off the coast of Queensland, with over 2900 individual reefs and some 900 islands. This is made of trillions of tiny animals known as 'coral polyps'. Each polyp is a cylindrical animal usually onlya... more »

Chimera Apple : We now know much more about Chimeras.... and the information is quite amazing. While the signature case of the woman who had two DNA is part of an earlier post and linked here, scientists are still looking into microchimerism. The wikipedia defines it thus A chimera (also spelled chimaera) is a single organism composed of genetically distinct cells. This can result in male and female organs, two different blood types, or subtle variations in form. Chimerism is an rare disorder that mixes the chromosomal population in a single organism. In these cases, chimerism may manifest as the presence of two sets of DNA, or organs that do not match the DNA of the rest of the organism.

The Expanding Universe.. and some embarrassing calculations! : This is a beautifully written article in Ars Technica, which explains the role of the cosmological constant, and more particularly how physicists are at a loss to explain absurd results when taking this as a constant. More particularly, it's a really excellent exposition on the basics.

Article Extract: The vacuum of space isn't actually "empty"; it teems with particles that pop in and out of existence, giving the vacuum an energy of its own. But here's an embarrassing fact about that energy: it predicts that the cosmological constant (which provides a measure of the rate of the expansion of the Universe) should be 10^120 times larger than we think it actually is.

When Einstein was first formulating a new theory of gravity, his solutions predicted that the Universe was expanding. At the time, the... more »

The Google Robotic movement : The Google movement towards buying out robotic companies continues. It started with self-driving cars, hiring roboticists and robots acquired from KAIST. After purchase of over eight robotics companies, it is not a coincidence anymore. Purchases include SCHAFT Inc., Industrial Perception, Redwood Robotics, Meka Robotics, Holomni, Bot & Dolly, Autofuss, Boston Dynamics...and a host of other related M&A. My take? There is confluence of events which point to where this may be headed.......

Article Link: Brian Gerkey, CEO of the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), ballparks the purchases in the hundreds of millions of dollars—an investment that should attract venture capital to other robotics start-ups. “Now, as of 2014, things are finally changing,” says Dennis Hong, who directs the Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory at UCLA. “The factthat Goog... more »

The Placebo Effect : Since I was in the Pharmaceutical industry a long time back, the placebo effect has always mystified me. It even works when the patient knows that it is a placebo apparently. However, it makes me feel better that scientists also do not really know why it exists. In fact, a lot of alternative medicines rely on the effect. It's fascinating.

Article Extract: Dr Kallmes, a radiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota – one of the world’s leading hospitals; has been treating patients with damaged backs for 15 years. All of the 130 patients he studied were prepared for their “operation” in the same way, including being wheeled into theatre and given a local anaesthetic in their back, but only half actually underwent the operation.

Dark Matter : “What makes the universe so hard to comprehend is that there’s nothing to compare it with.” -Anonymous. Such is the theory of Dark matter. What is it? As Dr. Amanda Peet said "It's not visible, so we called it Dark ". There is a large amount of mass which is missing and unaccounted for - which has a gravitational effect on visible matter. It was first postulated by Jan Oort in 1932 to account for the orbital velocities of stars in the Milky Way and by Fritz Zwicky in 1933 to account for evidence of "missing mass" in the orbital velocities of galaxies in clusters.

Tracking an aircraft : While there has been much consternation of the Malaysian airliner MH370 which has 'disappeared', the relatives of the people are understandably inconsolable. This does bring the whole tracking systems used into question. I decided to do some digging into the various technologies available. The system currently used is highly dependent on Radar, and a the transponder in the aircraft pinging back. Here is what I found.... it's open to discussion on cost etc, but there is a lot to digest.

Leg hairs hold secret to walking on water : While we know that the secret of the water strider is linked to the surface tension of the water and its ability to use fluid mechanics and to balance the capillary action with gravity, this new study is quite something. It shows how the leg hair fits a formula which takes into account the contact angle to the water to provide stability.

Article Extract: Chinese researchers have discovered that the spacing of the insect's leg hairs fits a formula that takes into account the contact angle of the hairs and fluid mechanics to ensure maximum load-carrying capacity and floating stability. The results, not only provide an insight into the remarkable ability of these insects, but has implications for the design of miniature rafts and water strider-inspired robots that can float stably and move easily across water.

Making use of Carbon and CO2 : The amount of carbon emissions that are in the form of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere has got some scientists thinking creatively. Why not use it? While trees are natural Carbon sinks, it would be an elegant solution to capture the carbon and use it in manufacturing. It's not even tech which is very far away, in fact most of it is even being tested today and some of the technologies are in use....

The SCSC or SSC as it is now called is something scientists are mulling over. Is it time to look at the fact that 40% of the tunneling has already been done for the now-defunct Super Conducting Super Collider? Time will tell, but physicists are an optimistic bunch as quoted in the linked Ars Technica article. Either ways, a Higgs factory will be created.... whether it will be Texas or the planned Linear Collider.

Article Extract: The US cancelled the construction of hardware that would have outperformed the LHC (the Superconducting Super Collider, or SSC) due to cost overruns, and it shut down its Tevatron once the LHC started up. Now, decisions on the linear collider that will be used to study the Higgs in detail are being made based on which country is likely to come up with the most money.

Born To Swim? : This is a known mammalian response at an early age when babies are dunked in the water.... holding their breath, the heart slows down and blood is shifted away from the peripheral muscles to conserve oxygen for the brain and heart. It's the same reflex which is observed in some other mammals as well. Makes you wonder about our ancestry!

Article Extract: Just blow into a baby’s face and watch him or her gulp air, close eyes, and stop whatever they’re doing. Parents have used this as a way to get their little ones to stop crying – but it’s also the path to swimming.

The response is what’s known as the bradycardic reflex, which is part of the mammalian diving reflex.

First mass-produced fuel cell car : This is a story of commitment, and passion. From human waste and bio-degradable material, scientists have been able to extract Hydrogen. And this is what is the promise of the Tuscon Fuel Cell, a car which is planned for launch in 2014. While it is early days yet, the tech may be close to as green we can get in moving people around. Fascinating indeed.

Article Extract: Brouwer, a scientist at the University of California at Irvine, pioneered a method for deriving pure hydrogen from human waste, food scraps and other matter flushed from homes. The aroma surrounding his prototype project at the Orange County Sanitation District’s Fountain Valley waste facility isn’t for everyone. “It smells like money,” he said.

More accurate version of the "space vortex" viral gif

I whipped this up this afternoon, so it isn't nearly as pretty as the original. I really can't be bothered putting much effort into this (unless someone finds a mistake, in which case I'll look very silly), I never really saw the appeal of it in the first place.

Anyway, it shows the motion of the planets (only the inner planets here) as they move through space. In my version, the plane of the solar system is at the correct 60 degrees, relative to the Sun's motion around the galactic plane. The speed at which the Sun moves has been slowed by a factor of 2. The planetary orbits are modelled as circles rather than ellipses, but I don't think the difference would be visible on this scale. Finally, the size of the Sun has been exaggerated.

How fast is Spaceship Earth traveling through space? : The answer is not as simple as one would assume. Because all motion is relative. So it could be a variety of different answers. Depending on the frame of reference, the answer could be zero or a variety of different answers. We do know that everything is moving. The Earth, the Sun, the Milky way, the local galactic cluster..... all of it. Read on to look at the motion from different perspectives....

Article Extract: The problem with motion is that “true motion” doesn’t exist.  The best we can do is talk about “relative motion” and that requires something else to reference against.  What you consider to be stationary (what you chose to define your movement with respect to) is a matter of personal choice.  The universe isn’t bothered one way or the other.

Understanding what animals are saying would be a huge money spinner : But this one has been debunked by neuroimaging experts. I would say it does make for an interesting thought though (no pun intended). I originally saw the 'No more Woof' campaign, and saw the claim being investigated on +Smithsonian Magazine. Please note I am not saying one will be able to read dog's minds... quite the contrary. Though as a SF writer, it does give one food for thought.

Article Extract: A Swedish design lab that calls itself the Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery thinks that animal behaviorists have been going about it the wrong way.

The World's Most Advanced Building Material Is... Wood : And it's also the most sustainable. While reading about how wood gets its strength by using the structural design of it's components, I was quite taken aback at how much of difference it makes. CLT is not new, but the recent applications are prompting architects and designers to call it "Wood on Steroids." Read on to know more!

Article Extract: The Stadthaus tower’s strength and mass rely on a highly engineered material called cross-laminated timber (CLT). The enormous panels are up to half a foot thick. They’re made by placing layers of parallel beams atop one another perpendicularly, then gluing them together to create material with steel-like strength. “This construction has more in common with precast concrete than traditional timber frame design,” Thistleton says. Many engineers like to call it“plywoo... more »

The Crabster : Despite the silly-sounding name, this is actually a pretty cool submersible. With it's ability to map the area around it, move across all kinds of obstacles and can ostensibly achieve a depth of 656 feet. I found the movements of this robotic sub very reminiscent of a spider. Plus it has the advantage of being almost autonomous.

Article Extract: The world’s largest and deepest underwater-walking robot, the 1,400-pound Crabster CR200, was designed to scuttle along the seafloor like a monstrous crustacean. Its possible vocations include scientific explorer, commercial surveyor, and treasure hunter. In fast currents too dangerous for scuba divers, it steadies itself on six legs by putting its head down, raising its rear, and facing the flow head-on. It has 11 cameras, including an acoustic one to see through cloudy, turbulent waters.

Tentacles or robot-arms? : I would personally prefer tentacles since they are versatile. And can be manipulated better. At least by us Aliens. Space junk has been a problem, and is getting to be quite dangerous to new launches. ESA has been working on a solution. Its a complex solution, since often the debris may have it's own spin or may drag along the capturing system itself. Much needs to be done.

Article Extract: Experts and academics from the ESA's Clean Space initiative will be debating the pros and cons of harpooning debris or grabbing it with giant mechanical tentacles, along with other techniques that could be used on its future e.DeOrbit space cleaning mission.

The ESA statement notes that around 17,000 of these objects are being tracked, but continue to "threaten working missions with catastrophic collision". Not only are the objects travelling in... more »

Soil Microbes alter DNA in response to Warming : It has been a missing piece of information for scientists.... how will the microbes in the soil respond to climate change? Considering a single gram of soil has over a billion bacterial cells, how they will react to warmer temperatures is essential to understanding the overall prognosis in response to climate change.

Article Extract: Compared to a control group with no warming, plants in warmer plots grew faster and higher, which put more carbon into the soil as the plants senesce. The microbial ecosystem responded by altering its DNA to enhance the ability to handle the excess carbon.

However, the microbial communities had increased their rate of respiration, which converted soil organic carbon to carbon dioxide (CO2), so the total carbon in the warm and control soils was similar. The microbial communities in the warm soils had... more »

The Hatchetfish : The Hatchetfish may not be the best-looking fish, but what it lacks in good looks, it makes up in the bioluminescence it displays to break up it's silhouette. The eyes are exceptional in low light, and work well in the depths it inhabits.

Article Extract: Marine hatchetfishes or deep-sea hatchetfishes are small deep-sea mesopelagic ray-finned fish of the stomiiform subfamily Sternoptychinae. The deep sea hatchetfish gets its name from the distinct hatchet-like shape of its body.

These fish have special light-producing organs known as photophores that run along the length of their body. These photophores produce light by means of a chemical reaction similar to that of the land-based firefly. Since these light organs point downward, it is believed they are used to hide the fish from predators through the process of counterillumination. This means that they... more »
