Scientists Reveal How Microbe 'Eats' Electricity. Some microbes, simple as they may be, have an ability to gather energy from extreme sources like sulfur, formic acid, minerals, and... electricity?

Yes, electricity. A team led by Peter Girguis from Harvard has discovered how a certain bacteria gets its energetic needs from electrons pulled from the environment. The results of this study were published in Nature Communications. Rhodopseudomonas palustris are gram-negative bacteria that has remarkable dexterity in obtaining energy and is able to take cues from the environment to employ photoautotropic, photoheterotrophic, chemoautotrophic, or chemoheterotrophic metabolism. This flexibility has baffled microbiologists for some time. Girguis’s team focused on the phototrophic aspects of its metabolism in order to begin teasing out some answers. Electrons are essentially the energy currency for most forms of life and they are exchanged through oxidation-reduction reactions.

By 2025 Half of all US Children Will Have Autism and Monsanto is to Blame. Dave Mihalovic, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times The overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food is causing glyphosate toxicity and it is now being considered as the single most important factor in development of autism and other chronic disease. At a recent panel discussion about GMOs, a senior scientist has stated that one in two children will be autistic by 2025. Glyphosate does induce disease and is a “textbook example of exogenous semiotic entropy.”

Glyphosate inhibits detoxification of xenobiotics and interferes with cytochrome P450 enzymes, which enhances the damaging effects of other chemical residues and toxins, and very slowly damages cellular systems in the body through inflammation. Residues of glyphosate are found in sugar, corn, soy, and wheat, some of the main components of the Western diet. Common psyche drugs and vaccines require the Cytochrome P450 gene 2D6 in order to be metabolized. 2D6 refers to the most major metabolic liver enzyme.

Bionic Plants: Turning Plants Into Energy Producing Factories.

A group of scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a system aimed at increasing the energy yield of plants through the use of nanomaterials. Using a similar system, they also hope to be able to assign plants the novel function of chemical detection, which could be used to sense explosives amongst other things. This new field of research has been entitled plant nanobionics​, and it is hoped these findings will precipitate a wave of research into this exciting new area. In a paper released in Nature Materials yesterday, a team led by Michael Strano were able to improve a plants' ability to capture light energy by 30%. Alongside this, they were able to increase the photosynthetic ability of chloroplasts by almost 50% In a press-release, Strano said "Plants are a very attractive technology platform. Next, the team wanted to increase the amount of sunlight that the chloroplasts can use to make energy.

LAPHAM Oct. 23, 2014 The portraits here are of men and women in their 80s and 90s, rich in the rewards of substantial and celebrated careers, and although I know none of them except by name and reputation, I’m asked why their love’s labor is not lost but still to be found. Why do they persist, the old masters? To what end the unceasing effort to discover or create something new? The short answer is Dr. “From the time that I was 6 years old I had the mania of drawing the form of objects. Hokusai died in 1849 in his late 80s, by all reports still far from satisfied with his work then in progress. On the way through my 50s I could see signs of progress, producing manuscripts that required only extensive rewriting, not the abandonment of the whole sorry mess of a dumb idea.

Now I am 79. T. John D. Resources for School Librarians. Exploiting Bacteria to Produce "Living Materials" A group of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have unveiled a system whereby bacterial cells are engineered in such a way that they incorporate specific non-living materials into their biofilms, creating a "living material". Biofilms are generated when bacteria cluster together and stick onto a surface. Often the bacteria will secrete substances that assist in this adherence, such as proteins and carbohydrate polymers (called polysaccharides) which form a slime. Numerous different species of bacteria have been found to form biofilms including E. coli and P. aeruginosa​, and often more than one bacterial species is found within a biofilm.

You might be more familiar with biofilms than you think, since dental plaque is a type of biofilm. Biofilms also often frequent pipes and can cause clogging and erosion. But that's not all they did. They generated a system whereby the cells could communicate with each other and subsequently control the composition of the biofilm. Socrative. Experiments, Ethics & Society.

Spiritualism (philosophy) In philosophy, spiritualism is the notion, shared by a wide variety of systems of thought, that there is an immaterial reality that cannot be perceived by the senses.[1] This includes philosophies that postulate a personal God, the immortality of the soul, or the immortality of the intellect or will, as well as any systems of thought that assume a universal mind or cosmic forces lying beyond the reach of purely materialistic interpretations.[1] Generally, any philosophical position, be it dualism, monism, atheism, theism, pantheism, idealism or any other, is compatible with spiritualism as long as it allows for a reality beyond matter.[1][2] Theism is an example of a dualist spiritualist philosophy, while pantheism is an example of monist spiritualism.[2] Spiritualism has held a particularly prominent position in French philosophy.[3]

U.S. Navy Killing Marine Life With Sonar and Weapons Testing. Arjun WaliaActivist Post Not only have whales been showing up dead with dozens of pounds of toxic, plastic waste inside their stomachs, the U.S Navy plans to raise the death toll by conducting underwater testing of explosive weapons and sonar devices. Tests will be and are taking place in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, including the Gulf of Mexico. These events are set to commence and take place from 2014 through 2019. The title is not an exaggeration, depending on the vicinity of the animals, detonating these explosives underwatermwill kill whales and dolphins and injure many, according to two environmental impact statements released by the military.(1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(8) Keep in mind, these events have been occurring for a number of years, and are responsible for the death of large amounts of marine life. (9) The Navy is not denying these facts.

Don't die wondering. Create something. How to Ask for (and Get) Everything You Want. The best way of getting what you want is thinking about your request before you actually make it. The big reason many people fail to get what they want is that they are too afraid to ask or they view their requests as all-or-nothing gambits—instead of a series of negotiations and compromises. But there is a middle ground. Here are strategies to help you begin the “asking” process and avoid becoming upset if things don’t go exactly as planned.

Steps to Success 1. Tell yourself there is nothing to fear except fear itself. Strategy: Before making your request, take plenty of time to remind yourself of the importance of what you are asking for. 2. Strategy: An extreme emotional reaction to any hurdle will almost certainly doom your mission, causing the other side to take you and your points less seriously. Tell yourself from the outset that you may not immediately get what you want. 3. Strategy: Write out exactly what you want. 4. Strategy: Ask in an enthusiastic manner and voice. 5. 6. 10 Time Management Mistakes Most People Fall Into. Are you feeling overwhelm and are getting nowhere? Or do you feel like you are having too much time and are feeling bored because you don’t accomplish much in life? In this article, you will discover the 10 time-management mistakes most people fall into. 1. Never envisioning or thinking about tomorrow.

This is very common and it is one of the main reasons most people have a problem with time management. Great businessmen and women and those who created extraordinary results in life are typically visionaries. When you think about how you are going to go through tomorrow, you will better equip yourself with what’s coming. 2. “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”

There seems to be some truth in this saying. A lot of people wake up late on the weekend. 3. If you study the success stories of all the great people out there, almost all of them started their days early. Can you see it now? 4. Never ever forget your goals and your targets. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Read full content.
