theyuniversity:(By Books of Adam)lol, amongst many instances of this, I can recall in detail one party in Manhattan I went to that was exactly like this, except I talked about 3d printers… for like 10 minutes, before everyone slowly backed away.and you know what, 3dP is freaking awesome. I ditched those lame people and now hang out with awesome people who appreciate awesome things. So really, it’s more about going to the right party.Hope the artist doesn’t mind, but […]

spaceplasma:Lightning illuminates the area it strikes on Earth but the flash can be seen from space, too. This image was taken from 400 km above Earth in 2012 by an astronaut on the International Space Station travelling at 28 800 km/h. At these distances a camera flash is pointless to take night-time images of Earth, but our planet moves by so quickly images can end up being blurred.A short video timelapse of this sequence can be found here showing the thunderstorm passing […]

4:30 PM | Prenatal Enviornment and Autism Related Impairment
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication and the presence of restricted or repetitive behaviors. Recent research advances indicate that genetics play a large role in the etiology of ASD1. The presence of de novo copy number variation (CNV), chromosomal deletions ...

knittinggothgirl:Article Link We have all heard that classic “Well, one volcano emits more CO2 emissions than humans do per year!” I have been told this recently in a discussion of the environment and it’s just been on my mind. So now it’s a post, especially since it’s apparently become common knowledge and I just felt like saying something about it. From the article: Published estimates based on research findings of the past 30 years […]

3:49 PM | Uncovering Protein Autoinhibition Using NanoBRET™ Technology
Introducing new assays or technologies is meant to make it easier for you to perform research and craft experiments to test hypotheses. However, scientists are creative people, and new technologies or assays may just be the catalyst for a crucial experiment or new data you are seeking. In the case of a recent Proceedings of […]

1:42 PM | Video Tip of the Week: Aquaria, streamlined access to protein structures for biologists
This week’s Video Tip of the Week is Aquaria, a new resource for exploring protein structures, mutations, and similarities to other proteins. It’s a very well-designed and interactive experience for end users. It is aimed largely at biologists who could benefit from exploring the structural details of their proteins of interest, but are daunted by […]

1:57 AM | Don’t Freak Out. Science Blogs are NOT Dying.
Today I came across Dynamic Ecology’s post Blogs are dying; long live (science blogs). In the post, Dr. Jeremy Fox writes about giving a talk here for an Ecology Center seminar at Utah State University. In the talk, he proposes (realizing that the statement is provocative) that blogs are dying. In his blog post, he cites several pieces of evidence including that there are fewer Google searches for the term “blog” today than in 2009. But what if people don’t... Read more

7:04 PM | Google includes trust for medical website rankings
The Skeptical Raptor, stalking pseudoscience in the internet jungle. There are many times I have joked that pseudoscience pushers got their education from the University of Google–that is, these individuals think that they are PhD’s or MD’s  based on an hour of googling a question about science or medicine, then reading some of the results from the search. Most people keep the default 10 … Continue reading Google includes trust for medical website rankings […]

Not Keen On Getting Old and Sickly? That May Soon Become OptionalI’ve written about anti-aging prospects in the past (x, x, x), and two of the important points I often make when discussing this is that a) I think optional immortality is inevitable, and that b) we can’t really say how long it’ll take to achieve. The reason for the latter is that it’s still a pretty young field (excuse the pun) and while we may continue to make small, incremental gains, it’s hard to […]
