These scientific ideas will drive you crazy Much has been made of this year’s question at John Brockman’s Edge, generally described as an online salon. Brockman asked for recommendations about which scientific ideas should be retired, and some 170 salonists replied.

New Body Health

Signs and symptoms[edit] The disorder causes muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body due to the degeneration of the upper and lower motor neurons. Unable to function, the muscles weaken and exhibit atrophy. Individuals affected by the disorder may ultimately lose the ability to initiate and control all voluntary movement, although bladder and bowel sphincters and the muscles responsible for eye movement are usually, but not always, spared until the final stages of the disease.[1] Cognitive function is generally spared for most patients, although some (about 5%) also have frontotemporal dementia.[2] A higher proportion of patients (30–50%) also have more subtle cognitive changes which may go unnoticed, but are revealed by detailed neuropsychological testing.

Ernest Rutherford’s Nucleated Century
Prof. Robert Zoellner, with a model of the molecule created by ten year-old Clara Lazen I don't know about other people, but when I was a child, I was inventing things such as a musical instrument made out of a folded piece of cardboard and some rubber bands. Ten year-old Clara Lazen, however, has done something a little more noteworthy. The fifth-grader from Kansas City, Missouri, built a model of a molecule that is new to science. If the molecule itself were to actually be created, it could possibly be used for energy storage, or in explosives.

Science The more we understand about science and its complexities, the more important it is for scientific data to be shared openly. It’s not useful to have ten different labs doing the same research and not sharing their results; likewise, we’re much more likely to be able to pinpoint diseases if we have genomic data from a large pool of individuals. Since 2004, we’ve been focusing our efforts to expand the use of Creative Commons licenses to scientific and technical research. Science

CHEMISTRY & PHYSICS

Otherwise, there are a quite a lot of sites out there covering physics and biology at this level, but my impression of them is that they would be good for revision, but not so good if you were struggling to understand something in the first place. If you want to find what is available a Google search on "a level" physics or "a level" biology should throw up a good selection. If you are doing some other exam - IB, for example, or Scottish Highers - you could try searching for these in a similar way, but it would still be worth looking for A level sites (and vice versa for A level students). physics and biology sites physics and biology sites

Virtual Laboratory: Thermodynamic Equilibrium Here is a snapshot of the applet. Read the instructions and then go to the links at the bottom of this page to activate various kinds of experiments that can be done with this applet. This applet is designed to simulate the diffusion process which occurs when gases of different temperatures are mixed. To activate the mixing click one time on the red vertical bar that separates the two chambers. After a few moments, the bar will turn green and the gases will start to mix and share their energy. The counters in the respective chambers indicate the number of particles in that chamber. Virtual Laboratory: Thermodynamic Equilibrium
Click chemistry was first fully described by K. Barry Sharpless and Valery Fokin of The Scripps Research Institute and M.G. Finn of Georgia Institute of Technology in 2001[1][2] and describes chemistry tailored to generate substances quickly and reliably by joining small units together. The trio of researchers were predicted by Thomson Reuters to be a front runner to win the 2013 Nobel Prize. Click chemistry is not a single specific reaction, but was meant to mimic nature, which also generates substances by joining small modular units. Click chemistry Click chemistry

Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have put out a new video to address false claims about the "Mayan apocalypse," a non-event that some people believe will bring the world to an end on Dec. 21. In the video, which was posted online on March 7, Don Yeomans, head of the Near-Earth Objects Program Office at NASA/JPL, explains away many of the most frequently cited doomsday scenarios. [See video] Addressing the belief that the calendar used by the ancient Mayan civilization comes to a sudden end in December 2012, and that this will coincide with a cataclysmic, world-ending event, Yeomans said: "Their calendar does not end on December 21, 2012; it's just the end of the cycle and the beginning of a new one. It's just like on December 31, our calendar comes to an end, but a new calendar begins on January 1." NASA video crushes 2012 Mayan apocalypse myth
