True Films: reviews of educational and documentary films Sigalon's Inspired Thinking Soup An artist’s rendering of a bacterial cell engineered to produce amyloid nanofibers that incorporate particles such as quantum dots (red and green spheres) or gold nanoparticles (credit: Yan Liang) MIT engineers have coaxed bacterial cells to produce biofilms that can incorporate nonliving materials, such as gold nanoparticles and quantum dots. These “living materials” combine the advantages of live cells — which respond to their environment, produce complex biological molecules, and span multiple length scales — with the benefits of nonliving materials, which add functions such as conducting electricity or emitting light. This approach could one day be used to design more complex devices such as solar cells, self-healing materials, or diagnostic sensors, says Timothy Lu, an MIT assistant professor of electrical engineering and biological engineering. The researchers also demonstrated that the cells can even coordinate with each other to control the composition of the biofilm.

Of all movies, “Jackass 2.5″ is first released straight to the Internet Steven Soderbergh is being followed by a Jackass. Soderbergh, the acclaimed director of such hits as “Erin Brockovich”, “Ocean’s Eleven”, and “Traffic”, tested the traditional delivery method of Hollywood films by debuting the low-budget 2006 movie “Bubble” simultaneously in theaters, on HDNet, and four days later on DVD. Soderbergh’s experiment was a far cry from the usual practice of debuting a major film in theaters first. Now Paramount Pictures is releasing what it says is the first studio-backed feature film to premier online. “Jackass 2.5” will include footage left over from “Jackass 2”, which earned more than $70 million at the box office, and new antics before “Jackass 3” is released in 2008. “Jackass 2.5” can be streamed free for one week. Beginning Jan. 1, Joost and other advertising-supported streaming sites, will let viewers watch the movie for free. “Within 30 days we’ll have a very good idea where the consumption is coming from,” he said.

Social Network Aggregators knopen alle online sociale netwerken Het lijkt een paradox. Online sociale netwerken zijn er om het ons gemakkelijk te maken, maar door het grote aanbod aan netwerken wordt het juist moeilijk om contacten terug te vinden. Een oude schoolvriend staat op, een studiegenoot op LinkedIn , de buurvrouw en haar kinderen op Hyves en de Italiaanse vakantieliefde op Facebook .
