Dr. Gerald Pollack: Institute for Venture Science — Funding "Out of the Box" Ideas - EU2014

In recent decades the scientific enterprise has produced many technological revolutions but few conceptual revolutions. Professor Gerald Pollack describes the reasons why. He goes on to describe how the newly founded Institute for Venture Science will restore science to the creative enterprise it once was.Dr. Pollack is a professor in the bio-engineering department of the University of Washington. He has spent the last 10 years researching the role of water in biological tissue. His discoveries will have a profound impact on the nature of disease and healing.Video courtesy of Thunderbolts Project… »

Scientists show that bacteria can evolve a biological timer to survive antibiotic treatments

The ability of microorganisms to overcome antibiotic treatments is one of the top concerns of modern medicine. The effectiveness of many antibiotics has been reduced by bacteria’s ability to rapidly evolve and develop strategies to resist antibiotics. Bacteria achieve this by specific mechanisms that are tailored to the molecular structure or function of a particular antibiotic. For example, bacteria would typically develop drug resistance by evolving a mutation that breaks down the drug.Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem set out to determine if they could predict a different evolutionary process and follow it in real time. Using the quantitative approach of physicists, the team developed experimental tools to measure precisely the bacterial response to antibiotics, and … »

Night sky guide for July 2014

July is the month when meteor activity starts to increase and continues into August. Several minor meteor showers during July and average Delta Aquarids on July 28/29 will introduce us to Perseids (August), one of the strongest meteor displays of the year. 2014 should be a great year for Delta Aquarids because the thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be a good show.Comets Jacques and Catalina will reach their perihelion on July 3rd and 6th, respectively.The later half of July is among the most enjoyable times of the year to enjoy a meteor display because of several minor meteor showers that mostly emanate from the constellations of Capricornus and Aquarius. After midnight on almost any day during the las… »

Plastic waste found in open oceans may be passing to the marine food chain

Researchers have demonstrated the existence of five large accumulations of plastic waste in the open ocean, which match with the five major twists of surface water circulation…However, central surface waters of the oceans may not be the final destination of plastic debris since, as indicated by the study performed by the Malaspina Expedition, large amounts of microplastics could be passing to the marine food chain and the ocean floor. Results of the study, led by the University of Cadiz (Spain), have been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).Andrés Cózar, researcher from the University of Cadiz, explains: “Ocean currents carry plastic objects which split into smaller and smaller fragments due to solar radiation. Those lit… »

Welded Water Tanks Installed At Fukushima Daiichi

Welded water tanks to replace the miles of leaking bolt together tanks at Fukushima Daiichi are being installed. The tanks are welded off site and shipped in by barge, ready to install. This allows workers to do the bulk of the work somewhere safe, leaving only the final move and installation to be done in the radioactive areas. This does make one wonder why TEPCO hadn’t thought of this themselves when the first tanks were being assembled and installed on site.

Long duration M1.4 solar flare erupted near the northeast limb

A long duration solar flare measuring M1.4 at its peak time erupted on July 1, 2014, at 11:23 UTC. The source of this event was AR 2106 (‘beta’) located near the northeast limb. The event started at 11:05, peaked at 11:23 and ended at 11:59 UTC. Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from this event should not be Earth directed.Forecasters estimate 40% chance of M-class, and 5% chance of X-class solar flares over the next two days.M1.4 solar flare on July 1, 2014 @ 11:41 UTC. Image credit: NASA SDO / AIA 304SunspotsThere are currently 8 numbered sunspot regions on the Earth side of the Sun. Two old and huge active regions AR 2080 and AR 2085 are making another rotation over the Earth side of the Sun. They both emerged over the weekend and are now numbered 2104 and 210… »
