Amazing Scanning Electron Microscope Photos All these pictures are from the book 'Microcosmos,' created by Brandon Brill from London. This book includes many scanning electron microscope (SEM) images of insects, humanbody parts and household items. These are the most amazing images of what is too small tosee with the naked eye. 2-2-11 An ant, Formica fusca, holding a microchip Surface of an Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory silicon microchip Eyelash hairs growing from the surface of human skin The surface of a strawberry Bacteria on the surface of a human tongue Human sperm (spermatozoa) Nylon hooks and loops of Velcro Household dust: includes long hairs of cat fur, twisted synthetic and woolen fibers, serrated insect scales, a pollen grain, and plant and insect remains The weave of nylon stocking fibers The head of a mosquito Head louse clinging to a human hair Eight eyes (two groups of four) on the head of a tarantula Cut human hairs and shaving foam between two razor blades Mushrooms spores Related:  Ecologie & Nature & Art

BOOKLET COMMANDER ISLANDS Actually, the waters between Russia and USA (Alaska and Aleutians) lies a sea so rich in wildlife and so varied in coastal and subsea habitats that it’s considered one of most biologically productive and diverse marine environments. Covering almost a million square miles of subarctic waters, the Bering Sea supports vast populations of fish and shellfish, birds from every continents and countless numbers of the whales, porpoises, dolphins, walruses, sea lions, fur seals, sea otters and seals. But only on the Commander Islands we can found the full picture of that. The main reason are in unique combination some geological and hydrological factors around this small area. Climate of the Islands is typically oceanic and high breadths. Average temperature of the most cold month (January) a minus of 5,4 degrees Celsius, warmest (August) plus of 10,4 degrees Celsius. Also, near Commander Islands there are a few huge and active under water volcanoes.

When a photograph is not just a photograph !! Give Ps a chance - Stanford Medicine Magazine - Stanford University School... A Nobelist’s quest to open our eyes to the next DNA. It’s called Poly P By SPYROS ANDREOPOULOS For the past 15 years, Arthur Kornberg, MD, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist at Stanford, has been deepening his relationship with one of biology’s wallflowers: a molecule he has nicknamed poly P. While most other biochemists ignore the omnipresent molecule (it shows up in every living cell on Earth) Kornberg, 89, can’t pull himself away. He’s convinced poly P is one of life’s great behind-the-scenes power players. “It’s more important than I am,” he says, with a smile. It’s not just his love of a good biochemical mystery that keeps the emeritus professor working in the lab — though that’s certainly part of what drives him. Inorganic polyphosphate, the molecule Kornberg calls poly P, is older than the hills — literally. What exactly is poly P? Kornberg became fascinated by poly P in the 1950s. This underscored for him that the stationary phase of a microbial “bug” is anything but stationary.

Uncontacted Tribes Monsters Hand Draw by Kids | Hand Drawing Art Pictures and Ideas Published on February 2nd, 2011 A little boy is chatting with his old baby ghost friend and passing a very hilarious moment both together.

The stranger is walking through the road by his way and from the jungle ghosts are irritating him but stranger does not care about this big dirty things.

Statistical Data Mining Tutorials Advertisment: In 2006 I joined Google. We are growing a Google Pittsburgh office on CMU's campus. We are hiring creative computer scientists who love programming, and Machine Learning is one the focus areas of the office. The following links point to a set of tutorials on many aspects of statistical data mining, including the foundations of probability, the foundations of statistical data analysis, and most of the classic machine learning and data mining algorithms. These include classification algorithms such as decision trees, neural nets, Bayesian classifiers, Support Vector Machines and cased-based (aka non-parametric) learning. I hope they're useful (and please let me know if they are, or if you have suggestions or error-corrections).

Rencontre d'un génie inconnu, Nikola Tesla Préface Un sondage effectué parmi les élèves du premier cycle de l’INSA de Lyon, donnèrent des résultats surprenants : sur les 87 réponses que j’ai reçues, environ 4 étudiants étaient capables de me fournir des informations pertinentes sur Nikola Tesla, ce qui représente 5 % des étudiants interrogés. C’est très peu vu l’environnement scientifique dans lequel l’étude a été faite. Introduction Carte d’identité de Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla voit le jour le 10 juillet 1856 à Smiljan, en Croatie près de la côte Adriatique et meurt le 7 janvier 43. Décorations de Tesla Partie 1 : L’électricité Ses débuts à l’école En 1875 il rentre à l’école polytechnique de Graz en Autriche où il étudie les maths, la physique et la mécanique. Invention du moteur à courant alternatif Lutte pour la recherche d’un standard électrique Dans les mois qui suivent cette conférence, il s’investit complètement dans le but d’inventer de nouvelles formes de machines à courant alternatif. Partie 2 : La lumière Introduction

Computer learns language by playing games Computers are great at treating words as data: Word-processing programs let you rearrange and format text however you like, and search engines can quickly find a word anywhere on the Web. But what would it mean for a computer to actually understand the meaning of a sentence written in ordinary English — or French, or Urdu, or Mandarin? One test might be whether the computer could analyze and follow a set of instructions for an unfamiliar task. In 2009, at the annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), researchers in the lab of Regina Barzilay, associate professor of computer science and electrical engineering, took the best-paper award for a system that generated scripts for installing a piece of software on a Windows computer by reviewing instructions posted on Microsoft’s help site. Starting from scratch Moreover, Barzilay says, game manuals have “very open text. So initially, its behavior is almost totally random. Proof of concept

La mort des abeilles met la planète en danger Les abeilles s'éteignent par milliards depuis quelques mois. Leur disparition pourrait sonner le glas de l'espèce humaine. C'est une incroyable épidémie, d'une violence et d'une ampleur faramineuse, qui est en train de se propager de ruche en ruche sur la planète. En quelques mois, entre 60 % et 90 % des abeilles se sont ainsi volatilisées aux Etats-Unis où les dernières estimations chiffrent à 1,5 million (sur 2,4 millions de ruches au total) le nombre de colonies qui ont disparu dans 27 Etats. En Allemagne, selon l'association nationale des apiculteurs, le quart des colonies a été décimé avec des pertes jusqu'à 80 % dans certains élevages. " Syndrome d'effondrement "" Légitimement inquiets, les scientifiques ont trouvé un nom à la mesure de ces désertions massives : le "" syndrome d'effondrement "" - ou "" colony collapse disorder "".
