La bolla d'acqua commestibile che può liberarci dalle bottiglie di plastica Una piccola bolla chiamata Ooho potrebbe rimpiazzare ben presto le bottiglie di acqua fatte con la plastica. Un team di giovani designer e ricercatori infatti ha creato da estratti di alghe brune una membrana gelatinosa che funziona da contenitore per l’acqua come una vera e propria bottiglia. In pratica Ooho è stata ricavata tramite un processo di sferificazione, lo stesso usato per alcuni cibi, che permette di rendere solida la parte esterna evitando che i liquidi fuoriescano. Chiunque potrebbe riprodurla a casa - La membrana che permette di trasportare l’acqua può essere forata in qualunque momento, quando si ha sete per bere o anche decidere di mangiarla per fare uno spuntino.

Eternal Curves Sculptors immortalize them. Poets regularly regale them. Even ordinary men pay tribute. American males, it has been calculated, spend some $3 billion a year to gaze at women with hourglass figures, those whose small waists blossom into sinuously curvy hips. Men rate women as most attractive when they have a waist size that is 60 to 70 percent of their hip size, the late psychologist Devendra Singh found in a series of pioneering studies begun 20 years ago. That this kind of hourglass figure is not only typical of the women men pay to look at, such as Playmates and adult film stars, but is also a preference found in many different social groups and cultural settings, suggests it has been shaped over millennia by evolutionary forces, like our tastes for sugar and fat. It is likely that men who preferred curvy hourglass figures in women had more children who carried their fathers’ preferences down to the present. What it comes down to, in a word, is fat.

Nuova Invenzione Rende l'Acqua dell'Oceano Potabile | Guarigione Naturale Ingegneri chimici dell’Università del Texas e l’Università di Marburg hanno ideato un metodo che prevede l’utilizzo di un piccolo campo elettrico per rimuove il sale dall’acqua di mare. Incredibilmente questa tecnica richiede poco più di una batteria che si può trovare in qualsiasi supermercato. Questa tecnica chiamata dissalazione elettrochimica mediata dell’acqua di mare (Electrochemically Mediated Seawater Desalination o EMSD), ha migliorato il metodo di dissalazione di acqua esistente fin’ora. Richard Cooks, professore di chimica presso l’Università di Austin, ha dichiarato: “La disponibilità di acqua potabile e per l’irrigazione delle colture è uno dei requisiti fondamentali per mantenere e migliorare la salute umana.“ Cook continua dicendo: “La dissalazione dell’acqua di mare è un modo per rispondere a questa esigenza, ma la maggior parte degli attuali metodi per la desalinizzazione dell’acqua si basano su membrane costose e facilmente contaminati. f.i.

The Heinz Dilemma Might Reveal That Morality Is Meaningless I don't know where you get the idea that morality is chaos. Morality has become increasingly logical over the millennia as people have become more sophisticated. Kohlberg was comparing moral logic to the cognitive development that Piaget studied. Preliterate societies never went above Kohlberg's stages 1 and 2 (based on my reading of a lot of early texts, e.g. The other thing is if you are dealing with a group that are authoritarian and focussed on law and order, and you try to push them into universal human rights, they may not realize that is what you are doing and think you are trying to push them back into the anarchy they are trying to get out of.
