Direct Current Modeling

submitted by: SirZerp
This video was made to test the modeling of electric current with Direct Coulomb Summation on Nvidia GPU's. It is using 1.2 million dipole charges in stacked radial loops to model electric current. The simulations were computed on a GTX 560 over a few days. In general, the video uses Coulomb's law to compute an large 321x321x321 observational cube of data. The dataset is then sent to a ray tracer which produces the images in the video. The background colors show the potential energy...

Unmetabolized folic acid prevalence is widespread in the older Irish population despite the lack of a mandatory fortification program

submitted by: MaryRose
BACKGROUND: In 2006 the Food Safety Authority of Ireland recommended mandatory folic acid fortification of flour for the prevention of neural tube defects in addition to the existing extensive voluntary folic acid fortification culture in place there. This recommendation is now suspended until further scientific evidence surrounding safety becomes available. The safety issues include concerns about the masking of vitamin B-12 deficiency and potential cancer acceleration, both of which may...
