Science on Google+574,637Please join us on 3/4 for a Developmental Science HOA with Dr.@102662655160025117683, Associate Professor of Psychology at @109618943120182321190 and director of the Developmental Language and Cognition Lab. Dr. Wagner studies how children acquire language, and in particular, how they learn about meaning. Her research has looks at various dimensions of meaning, including children's understanding of temporal and event semantics (especially the linguistic category of aspect), and their understanding of social indexical meanings coded in dialect and register. She conducts her studies at her lab on OSU's campus, and also at the Columbus Center of Science and Industry (@108175964516692755798). We will enable the Q & A app prior to the HOA so feel free to posts your questions on the event post or by using the app. RSVP “yes” to add this event to your calendar. *Relevant Links:* Faculty page: http://goo.gl/la3xYa  Lab page: http://goo.gl/CduTn0  Buckeye Language Network: http://goo.gl/YA6dNW  *Relevant Readings:* Wagner, L., Clopper, C.

Mount Roraima, South America: This tabletop mountain is one of the oldest mountains on Earth, dating back two billion years when the land was lifted high above the ground by tectonic activity. The sides of the mountain are sheer vertical cliffs, with several waterfalls, making it very nearly impossible to climb.

The mathematician Archimedes once said, “Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the Earth." As it turns out, he was describing the fundamental principle behind the lever

The lever is balanced when the product of the effort force and the length of the effort arm equals the product of the resistance force and the length of the resistance arm. This relies on one of the basic laws of physics, which states that work measured in joules is equal to force applied over a distance.

A lever can’t reduce the amount of work needed to lift something, but it does give you a trade-off.Increase the distance and you can apply less force. Rather than trying to lift an object directly, the lever makes the job easier by dispersing its weight across the entire length of the effort and resistance arms.

Rather than trying to lift an object directly, the lever makes the job easier by dispersing its weight across the entire length of the effort and resistance arms. So if your friend weighs twice as much as you, you’d need to sit twice as far from the center as him in order to lift him. By the same token, his little sister, whose weight is only a quarter of yours, could lift you by sitting four times as far as you.

With a big enough lever, you can lift some pretty heavy things. A person weighing 150 pounds, or 68 kilograms, could use a lever just 3.7 meters long to balance a smart car, or a ten meter lever to lift a 2.5 ton stone block, like the ones used to build the Pyramids. If you wanted to lift the Eiffel Tower, your lever would have to be a bit longer, about 40.6 kilometers.

The Earth weighs 6 x 10^24 kilograms, and the Moon that’s about 384,400 kilometers away would make a great fulcrum. So all you’d need to lift the Earth is a lever with a length of about a quadrillion light years, 1.5 billion times the distance to the Andromeda Galaxy.

And of course a place to stand so you can use it.

We’ve solved the mystery of the food coloring drops that chase each other

A puzzling observation, pursued through hundreds of experiments, has led Stanford researchers to a simple yet profound discovery: Under certain circumstances, droplets of fluid will move like performers in a dance choreographed by molecular physics.

What makes drops of food coloring able to dance, chase, sort themselves, or align with one another? This unexpected behavior is a consequence of food coloring consisting of two mixed liquids: water and propylene glycol. Both have their own surface tension properties and evaporation rates, which ultimately drives the behavior you see in the animated gifs. Both long-range and short-range interactions are observed. The former are due to vapor from each droplet adsorbing onto the glass around the droplet, thereby changing the local surface tension andc... more »

Both have their own surface tension properties and evaporation rates, which ultimately drives the behavior you see in the animated gifs. Both long-range and short-range interactions are observed. The former are due to vapor from each droplet adsorbing onto the glass around the droplet, thereby changing the local surface tension and causing nearby drops to feel an attractive force. The short-range effects are also surface-tension-driven.

Droplets with lower surface tension will naturally try to flow toward areas of higher surface tension, which causes them to “chase” dissimilar adjacent drops. You can learn more about the research in the videos linked below (especially the last two), or you can read about the work in this article.

Watch set into a single Colombian emerald crystal, circa 1600; the watch is part of the Cheapside Hoard, a cache of jewels and jewelry buried since the Great Fire of London in 1666 and rediscovered in 1912. This looks like the kind of thing you write a whole novel about, starring relatable youths who are irreversibly altered by their strange experiences.

People owned vampire crabs as pets for years before science identified them

The newly described species, Geosesarma dennerle and Geosesarma hagen, were found in separate river valleys on the Indonesian island of Java. "These crabs are kind of special because they've been around in the pet trade for ten years, but no one knew where they come from," said study co-author and professional aquarist Christian Lukhaup of Waiblingen, Germany.

These crabs' blazing eyes and spectacular colors explain their attraction to aquarists.

Homer's Theorem

The Higgs boson was first theorized in 1964 by a team of physicists including Peter Higgs, for whom the particle was named. The Higgs boson and the Higgs field are believed to be what gives certain fundamental particles mass. Scientists at the CERN Large Hadron Collider tentatively confirmed their discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. They calculated the mass of the particle to be between 125 and 127 giga-electron volts (GeV).

Homer’s equation, when solved, gives a mass of 775 GeV, more than five times the actual mass of the Higgs boson, but as Singh explains in the book The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets it was, “not a bad guess, particularly bearing in mind that Homer is an amateur inventor and he performed this calculation fourteen years before the physicists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, tracked down theelu... more »

Women of Color Working in STEM Fields Are Frequently Mistaken for Janitors

Almost half of Black and Latina women working as scientists have been mistaken for a janitor or administrator of their offices, reveals a new report (http://www.toolsforchangeinstem.org/double-jeopardy-report-viewer/) on the experiences of women of color working in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

As one Latina statistician told researchers, “I always amuse my friends with my janitor stories, but it has happened not only at weird hours.” She calmly informed someone that she had the key to the office, not the janitor’s closet.

That detail is part of “Double Jeopardy: Gender Bias Against Women of Color in Science,” the new report by the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California that surveyed 500 female scientists and conducted in-depth interviews with 60 more. It provides a damning look at how gender and racial bias impacts women’s mental health and careers.

The conventional wisdom is that women don’t work in the sciences at the same rate as men because of a lack of early encouragement for girls to pursue STEM careers and because they’re more likely to leave careers to have kids. But the interviews show that those explanations leave out the hostile and discouraging environment that many women face in male-dominated classrooms, offices, and labs. Of the 60 scientists interviewed in the report, 100 percent reported that they had experienced gender discrimination during their careers. More than 75 percent of the African-American women scientists surveyed reported having to prove their intelligence over and over again. They feel they can’t afford to make a single mistake.”

Asteroid Miners May Get Help from Metal-Munching Microbes

Asteroid mining may become a multispecies affair.

The asteroid-mining firm Deep Space Industries (DSI) is investigating the feasibility of injecting bioengineered microbes into space rocks far from Earth, to get a jump on processing their valuable resources.

"You could come back [to the asteroids] in 10 to 20 years and have a preprocessed pile of materials," Joseph Grace, of DSI and NASA’s Ames Research Center, told Space.com last month at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco.

"You could come back [to the asteroids] in 10 to 20 years and have a preprocessed pile of materials," Joseph Grace, of DSI and NASA’s Ames Research Center, told Space.com last month at the annual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco.

The scientists working on the concept envision launching a small probe that DSI is developing, called Mothership, out to a promising near-Earth asteroid in deep space. Mothership would be carrying a number of tiny CubeSats, one of which would deploy and spiral down to the asteroid’s surface.

The CubeSat would then inject into the asteroid a low-temperature fluid laden with bacteria, which would propagate through cracks and fissures generated by the injection process. Over time, the microbes — genetically engineered to process metals efficiently — would break down harmful compounds within the asteroid and/or transform resources into different chemical states that are more amenable to extraction.

This work would be slow, but the bacteria would be doing it for free (after the initial expenditure of getting them out to the asteroid, of course).

"The use of self-sustaining biomining mitigates the need for sustained docking, anchoring, drilling, processing or other technically challenging traditional mining approaches," Grace and his colleagues wrote in a poster they presented at AGU. "If shown to function, the use of life to preprocess valuable deep-space resources could change the economic practicality of a large range of human activity in space."

Kidney images reveal the secrets of how organ develops

These incredible images have revealed insights into how the kidney develops from a tiny cluster of cells into a complex organ. The time-lapse pictures of growing mouse kidneys are helping scientists to understand the early stages of development in mammals.

If nephrons don’t work properly, it can cause a wide range of health problems — from abnormal water and salt loss, to dangerously high blood pressure. The findings will help scientists to grow nephrons in the lab that can be used to study how kidneys function.

Using the time-lapse technique also means that the same mice can be studied over time, at different developmental stages. This significantly reduces the number of animals needed for this type of research. The research was funded by the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research.

MRI Technique Developed for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Children Study makes strides toward noninvasive diagnostic for increasingly common pediatric liver disease

Between 5 and 8 million children in the United States have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), yet most cases go undiagnosed. To help address this issue, researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based technique to help clinicians and researchers better detect and evaluate NAFLD in children. The study is published Feb. 5 in Hepatology.

“Currently, diagnosis of NAFLD requires a liver biopsy, which is not always available or performed. This leads to both misdiagnosis and missed diagnoses, hampering patient care and progress in clinical research,” said Jeffrey B.

MRI Technique Developed for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Children Study makes strides toward noninvasive diagnostic for increasingly common pediatric liver disease

Between 5 and 8 million children in the United States have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), yet most cases go undiagnosed. To help address this issue, researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based technique to help clinicians and researchers better detect and evaluate NAFLD in children. The study is published Feb. 5 in Hepatology.

“Currently, diagnosis of NAFLD requires a liver biopsy, which is not always available or performed. This leads to both misdiagnosis and missed diagnoses, hampering patient care and progress in clinical research,” said Jeffrey B. Schwimmer, MD, professor of clinical pediatrics at UC San Diego, director of the Fatty Liver Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and the first author of the study. “Thus, a noninvasive method for diagnosing and/or evaluating NAFLD has the potential to impact millions of children.”

NAFLD is characterized by large droplets of fat in at least five percent of a child’s liver cells. Obesity and diabetes are risk factors for NAFLD. Doctors are concerned about NAFLD in children because it can lead to hepatitis, liver scarring, cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Traditionally, NAFLD is diagnosed by a gastroenterologist in consultation with a pathologist, who examines the patient’s biopsied liver tissue under a microscope. The presence and severity of liver fat is graded by the pathologist as none, mild, moderate or severe, based on the percentage of liver cells that contain fat droplets.

In an effort known as the MRI Rosetta Stone Project, Schwimmer and colleagues used a special MRI technique known as magnitude-based MRI, which was previously developed by researchers in the UC San Diego Liver Imaging Group, to estimate liver proton density fat fraction (PDFF), a biomarker of liver fat content.

“Existing techniques for measuring liver fat are dependent upon the individual scanner and the center at which the measurements were made, so they cannot be compared directly,” said Claude B. Sirlin, MD, professor of radiology at UC San Diego and senior author of the study. “By comparison, PDFF is a standardized marker that is reproducible on different scanners and at different imaging centers. Thus, the results of the current study can be generalized to the broader population.”

In this study, the researchers compared the new MRI technique to the standard liver biopsy method of assessing fat in the liver. To do this, the team enrolled 174 children who were having liver biopsies for clinical care. For each patient, the team performed both MRI-estimated PDFF and compared the results to the standard pathology method of measuring fat on a liver biopsy.

The team found a strong correlation between the amount of liver fat as measured by the new MRI technique and the grade of liver fat determined by pathology. This is an important step towards being able to use this technology for patients. Notably, the correlation was influenced by both the patient’s gender and the amount of scar tissue in the liver. The correlation between the two techniques was strongest in females and in children with minimal scar tissue.

Depending on how the new MRI technology is used, it could correctly classify between 65 and 90 percent of children as having or not having fatty liver tissue.

“Advanced magnitude MRI can be used to estimate PDFF in children, which correlates well with standard analysis of liver biopsies,” Schwimmer said. “We are especially excited about the promise of the technology for following children with NAFLD over time. However, further refinements will be needed before this or any other MRI technique can be used to diagnose NAFLD in an individual child.”

Why Science Needs Art

UCSC's Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz gives us a glimpse of how he visualizes his research. Since much of what he studies is abstract calculations and theories, he shows us how important it is to have visuals to both explain and comprehend his work.

Physicists tend to be polymaths, so no surprise, Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz, UC Santa Cruz professor of astronomy and astrophysics, cites the short story The Library of Babel by the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges as his inspiration. Borges played with notions of time and space, so it’s easy to see the attraction to a young physicist. And like Borges, Ramirez-Ruiz can fairly be called a wunderkind.

He uses computer simulations to explore violent phenomena such as stellar explosions, gamma-ray bursts and the accretion of material onto black holes and neutron stars. The video is under a minute.

The giant Humboldt squid First squid cam

Scientists working with a remote imaging team at National Geographic decided to put camera sweaters - tubes of Lycra-like material - on a few Humboldts to get a squid’s eye view of easily one of their most interesting behavior: Color-flashing communication. Scientists aren’t sure what the squid are trying to say, but they are fairly certain they are communicating with each other. Humboldt squid do this by rapidly squeezing cells in their skin called chromatophores and turning their whole bodies from white to red and back again. This flashing can change speed and direction on the skin in response to all kinds of squid interactions, from mating attempts to displays of aggression. But which patterns the squid show off have yet to be mapped onto some kind of color vocabulary.

"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour...." William Blake

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) put together and released an amazing photo set not long ago showing us the smallest marine creatures living in our planet's seas and oceans. Phytoplanktons, diatoms, different types and forms of algae, they all look beautiful under the microscope. Without these tiny lifeforms, invisible for the naked eye, there would be no life in our seas. And the most enlightening thing is this: these shots look like those spectacular Hubble space photos of galaxies, nebulas, stellar clouds.

Patricia Piccinini brings a deeply personal perspective to her work, through manipulation and enhancement

Patricia Piccinini's monstrously beautiful works

Piccinini was born in 1965 In Sierra Leone but moved to Australia in 1972 with her family. She initially studied economic history before enrolling at art school in Melbourne. Since 1991 her work has been exhibited around the world.

Piccinini works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, video, sound, installation and digital prints. She has an ambivalent attitude towards technology but enjoys exploring what she calls... the often specious distinctions between the artificial and the natural. She is keenly interested in how our changing understanding of these concepts will effect the further evolution of our society. Specific works have addressed concerns about biotechnology, such as gene therapy and ongoing research to map the human genome. She is also fascinated by the mechanisms of consumer culture. 

Probably one of my all-time favorite artists, each and every one of her works invites and rewards closer study. What at first sight appears shocking often reveals something surprisingly tender. Most of her work is very layered and can be interpreted in a multitude of ways.

“Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely,” said the British historian Lord Acton. As we know unfortunately, this is not entirely a myth.

A great deal of research - especially from social psychology - lends support to Acton’s claim: Power leads people to act in impulsive fashion, both good and bad, and to fail to understand other people’s feelings and desires.

UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner explains some of the ways in which power encourages individuals to act on their own whims, desires, and impulses. “When you give people power, they basically start acting like fools. They flirt inappropriately, tease in a hostile fashion, and become totally impulsive.” They actually begin to exhibit behavior similar to neurology patients with brain damage, which prevents them from relating to others.

Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

With 75,000 patients dying from hospital acquired infections every year in the US, making future doctors cognizant of how infections may spread is more than just a gross-out teaching tool.

Bacteria can utilize many different things as vectors in order to promote their transmission. Insects, water, food, coughs and sneezes, sexual contact, and rain are just a few examples. The mobile phone appears to be no exception this rule. As part of BMS1035 Practical and Biomedical Bacteriology, an undergraduate module that I run, I get the students to to imprint their mobile phones onto bacteriological growth media so that we might determine what they might carry. From these results, it seems that the mobile phone doesn’t just remember telephone numbers, but also harbours a history of our personal and physical contacts such as other people, soil, etc.The images here are from the latest version of this experiment performed by the University of Surrey Level 4 UG  students in 2014.

Draco Lizards patagia color

There are 42 species of flying dragons, or Draco as they are formally known, and they all glide on extended flaps of skin or patagia. Some of the species signaling and gliding. Some of the shots are extraordinary - it’s particularly cool to see them use their throat lappets and wings for communication. Draco: http://goo.gl/h0p3Ad

Forecasting the Sun’s Fury: How Artificial Intelligence Can Predict Solar

This is a visualization of all of the solar flares observed by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Plotted with D3, this stereographic projection of the Sun onto a plane shows X-class flares as red, M-class flares as green, and C-class flares as yellow.

Predicting flares and other solar activity is one of the goals of SDO. But how do you predict a solar flare? The solution lies in machine learning algorithms. In a blog post, solar physicist Monica Bobra discusses how machine learning can be used to predict solar flares.

Taming the flame: Electrical wave “blaster” could provide new way to extinguish fires

A Flame being extinguished by Electricity. Whoa What? How/why does this happen? explanation please!

“carbon particles generated in the flame are key for its response to electric fields. carbon particles can easily become charged. The charged particles respond to the electric field, affecting the stability of flames.”

Wonderful Things: The Giant Transparent Ribbons of Eel Larvae

Leptocephalus: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leptocephalus

Series: Wonderful Things: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/artful-amoeba/tag/wonderful-things/

The video shows large leptocephali that were filmed by divers at 3 locations within the Indonesian Archipelago from 2009 - 2011. These leptocephali were observed in Lembeh Strait adjacent to northeastern Sulawesi Island, at Ambon Island and at Bali, from December to April.

These leptocephali are about 300 - 400 mm long and appear to be metamorphosing larvae of some type of moray eel of the family Muraenidae. The morphological similarities between these leptocephali and ribbon eels, Rhinomuraena quaesita, suggest they may be ribbon eel larvae.

AR9077: Solar Magnetic Arcade

A major solar flare produced an arcade resembling a slinky. That flare has been featured here before, but this time we are showing a set of composite images that shows the thermal evolution of the material. The X5.7 flare occurred on 14 July 2000, in Active Region 9077, and was observed by TRACE in three colors: the red image shows the ultraviolet continuum, generally characteristic of cool, dense gas; the blue image shows the 171Å pass band, characteristic of material around 1 million degrees; the green channel shows material hotter than about 1.5 million degrees up to approximately 10 million degrees.

Photo Set Image: The top image is a collage of six images. Frame 1, right after the onset of the flare, shows very bright, rapidly evolving flare kernels and the beginning formation of ridges, or ribbons, that give this “two-ribbon flare”its ... more »

Photo Set Image: The top image is a collage of six images. Frame 1, right after the onset of the flare, shows very bright, rapidly evolving flare kernels and the beginning formation of ridges, or ribbons, that give this “two-ribbon flare” its name. Frame 2 shows an image 22 minutes later, when the ribbons have developed along much of their length, and loops connecting them are showing up on the right-hand side of the arcade. Frame 3 shows a bright ridge between the ribbons; this is presumably very hot material, but it remains unclear whether that lies below or above the now cooling loops connecting the ribbons. Frame 4 shows green loops forming on the left-hand side, that cool to blue in frame 5. In Frame 6 most of the arcade loops have cooled to around 1 million degrees.

Because TRACE observes gas of very different pass bands, it allows us in principle to perform a very detailed study of the thermal evolution of this flare, which was very large, and caused the largest particle storm of the cycle thus far.

How to Build the World’s Simplest Electric Train

The AmazingScience YouTube channel demonstrates how to build a ridiculously simple electric kind of train with the help of a few magnets, a battery, and a copper coil. You can also use the same materials to build a little spinning motor-like-esque contraption.

Primordial Sounds - Big Bang Acoustics Sounds From The Newborn Universe

Cosmology is in a golden era, with extraordinary advances, both experimental and theoretical, coming every year. The aim of this project is to cast some of the most recent developments in a novel and engaging manner, choosing sound as the primary vehicle. Perhaps, with this experiential access to Nature, the excitement which is almost palpable in the astronomical community, can be felt more widely.
          
The project has also allowed me, a non-cosmologist astronomer, the opportunity to follow more closely what is, I think, a precious time in the history of science - indeed, in human history. With each passing year, the biography of the Universe is being penned in an ever firmer hand. In fact, since we are of the Universe, it is really an autobiography.
