Five fingers of evolution - Paul Andersen In his talk, Paul Andersen explains the five causes of microevolution. Research one example for each cause in the human population. Use the following population simulator to simulate microevolution: Run the simulation using the default settings. Note the change in gene frequencies due to chance. Reset the simulation and increase the population size to 200.

Watch this bead chain loop defy gravity and bend physics | Science! Science is unendingly cool because it can consistently confound the expectations of researcher and layman alike. Case in point, what do you figure would happen if you had a bead chain coiled up in a small container, then pulled one end out? You probably didn’t guess that it would leap up and uncoil like a tiny metallic snake, but that’s what happens. This demonstration is sometimes called Newton’s Beads. It’s an unexpected trick of physics, but the mechanics behind it are fairly simple. The effect seen above in slow motion is a function of momentum. It’s not a smooth arch like you might expect, even after coming to terms with the fact that it’s happening.
Superhero Tee Shirts Science and Space Facts, Science and Space, Human Body, Health, Earth, Human Disease - National Geographic My Superhero Tee Shirts 18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently This list has been expanded into the new book, “Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind,” by Carolyn Gregoire and Scott Barry Kaufman. Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process. Neuroscience paints a complicated picture of creativity. And psychologically speaking, creative personality types are difficult to pin down, largely because they’re complex, paradoxical and tend to avoid habit or routine. While there’s no “typical” creative type, there are some tell-tale characteristics and behaviors of highly creative people. They daydream. According to Kaufman and psychologist Rebecca L. They observe everything.
29 Delicious Slow Motion GIFs Serial killers aside, this week’s full post is kind of intense and just taking more time than usual. It’ll go up early next week. In the meantime, these 29 succulent slow motion GIFs will serve as a distraction. Let’s start with what happens if you shoot a bullet into a steel wall. The wall wins. But a watermelon loses. Doesn’t go particularly well for the egg either. Squishy pool table edge. The tip of a pool cue distorts slightly when it hits the ball. Things popping. Unpleasant. It seems like a drinking dog is just licking the water with his dumb tongue, but he’s actually doing stuff. Officially a monster. I wonder who the first human was to realize this happened when you heated up corn. A violin being creepy. Lightning actually worms its way down to the Earth and the big bolt you see is generated when it first touches the ground. Not really sure what the glass was doing between when it was hit and when it shattered. 2 for 1. The ball gooeys around the bat. But it gooeys when it hits a metal wall.
Questions no one knows the answers to - Chris Anderson 1) Ask teachers for their favorite unanswered questions. Create a large display space in your school or in some other public area in your community where people can write down other big questions, and/or identify which of the already-posted questions seems especially intriguing to them. 2) Anderson asks, “Why do so many innocent people and animals suffer terrible things?” Humans have been asking this whopper of a question for almost as long as humans have existed. Explore some of the explanations that have been offered by religious leaders, philosophers, writers and others.
