Science & Social Media: Tamara Zemlo, BioInformatics, LLC

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
On Jan. 6, 2009, in Arlington, Virginia, the National Science Foundation, The Ballston Science and Technology Alliance, and BioInformatics, LLC, hosted a Cafe Scientifique on Science and Social Media. In part 1 of this 4 part video, Dr. Tamara Zemlo from BioInformatics, LLC presents an overview of why scientists need to communicate with each other, the traditional media used, and how new media is changing how science is communicated among professionals.

THE CORONA EFFECT

submitted by: manoliuval
A space program is very expansive but 80% of the weight of the ship is represented by the tanks of fuel. The solution would to find a system or a mechanism that could allow us to use the energy from the particles of the environment that we want to move into then the cost of such a research program would be really cheaper. The quantic propulsed ship is composed out of the main part of the vessel, the auxiliary device and the quantic device of propulsion. The auxiliary mechanism is...

THE NUCLEAR PHOTO-TERMAL-ELECTRIC GENERATOR

submitted by: manoliuval
That eses the radioactive ofval that is transformed in electric current. 1590 years is the life of one gram of radium: that is half of the existing nucleus will disintegrated and tne other half needs 1590 years more. Using the principales of emission of radioactive energy and that of absorption of energy by the photo-thermo-electric panels, we suppose that we could achieve a photo-thermo-*electric nuclear generator which would transform radioactive energy into the electric current....

THE QUANTIC GENERATOR

submitted by: manoliuval
The radiant energy produced under the form of light or heat can be absorbed and transformed into electric current. The first two levels transform the light into electric current and the other three levels take over that heat from the first two levels. The heat lost by the cooling process transforms itself into electric current. By closing the space between the coil and the photo/thermo/electric panels, we obtain two atomic systems, one isolated with N and S electromagnetic...

THE GREAT UNIFICATION

submitted by: manoliuval
For the scientists, the Unified Field represents the union of the weak nuclear force and the powerful nuclear force with the electromagnetic force and the force of Gravity. In the Great Union case, there is supposed the possibility of the union of the weak nuclear force (representing the electronic cover of the atom) with the powerful nuclear force (representing the atomic nucleus composed by protons and neutrons) with the electromagnetic force. The nuclear force and the...

THE NUCLEAR FUSION

submitted by: manoliuval
The nuclear fusion is realized by photo-electric-magneto-thermal effect. The electronic cover is being removed by the “COMPTON” effect and the photons operate directly over the atomic nucleus. The electrical field accelerates the particles but their trajectory will be curved by a magnetic field except for neutrons which don’t have any electrical charge, but only magnetic moments. This iswhy the neutrons move straight ahead, parallel to the axis of the chamber. The...

Antibiotics: Is a Strong Offense the Best Defense? (Part 2 of 3) MWV

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
On September 18, 2008 at the Koshland Science Museum in Washington, D.C., Dr. Stuart Levy, professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology at Tufts University School of Medicine and Dr. Linda Tollefson, Assistant Commissioner for Science at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, discussed how to optimize antibiotic use and how to minimize the emergence of drug resistant pathogens. In part 2 of this 3 part video series, Dr. Levy discusses how antibiotic resistance develops, the development...

Emperors of the Extreme

Emperor penguins can flourish in locales where few other animals roam. But scientists now wonder if they can adapt to a new threat: climate change.

Dry Ice Bubble Art
