    Re: Duke the menace

    From Jeff Altman professional of Filmworkers (Chicago, EUA)
    Footage from my grandfathers trip to Lisbon, Portugal sometime in the 1950s. I’m unsure of the specific circumstances of this visit, but I believe it to be related to his serving in the US Naval Reserve.

    Re: Duke the menace

    A veterinary Brenham, United States, killed a domestic cat with bow and arrow and later boasted on Facebook. The incident occurred on April 15, when the veterinary Kristen Lindsey published a photograph of a dead animal in the social network. In the legend, wrote: "My first hunting with bow and arrow, lol The only good wild cat is one that has an arrow in the head veterinary Award of the year ... Accept soon.!."

    It was a domestic cat and his name was Tiger SHAME on YOU Kristen Lindsey as a veterinary you should know better than that.

    Cold Spot suggests largest structure in Universe: A supervoid 1.3 billion light years across


    A map of the cosmic microwave background made using the Planck satellite. The Cold Spot, the ellipse at the bottom right, area resides in the constellation Eridanus in the southern galactic hemisphere. The insets show the environment of this anomalous patch of the sky, as mapped by Szapudi's team using PS1 and WISE data and as observed in the cosmic microwave background temperature data. The angular diameter of the vast supervoid aligned with the Cold Spot, which exceeds 30 degrees, is marked by the white circles. Credit: Graphics by Gerg? Kránicz.

    Summary:
    In 2004, astronomers examining a map of the radiation left over from the Big Bang discovered the Cold Spot, a larger-than-expected unusually cold area of the sky. The physics surrounding the Big Bang theory predicts warmer and cooler spots of various sizes in the infant universe, but a spot this large and this cold was unexpected.

    New Test Lets Women Pick Their Best IVF Embryo
    But the FDA-approved technology for use with in vitro fertilization has yet to prove it leads to better babies
    April 16, 2015 |By Dina Fine Maron


    Promising embryos will divide into even numbers of cells.

    When sperm meets egg not every match is a winning one. That is particularly true in the petri dishes of the scientific dating game called IVF, or in vitro fertilization. For the first two or three days after the arranged coupling, scientists carefully scrutinize the budding relationship for any signs that it has veered off course. Embryos with a good shape and rapidly dividing cells receive high marks and may be selected for implantation in a woman’s womb or frozen for future use. Embryos with poor chemistry, however, are typically cast aside.

    Those embryos dawdle or multiply into odd cell numbers—three and then maybe seven cells, as opposed to a healthy two to four to eight progression—and studies suggest those abnormalities may indicate embryos would not be as likely to eventually form a promising blastocyst, a rapidly dividing ball of over 100 cells. By day five that cluster of cells should form a well-defined ...

    Não vale a pena olhar para o céu com muita fé e pouca luta.

    Not worth look at the sky(heaven) with much faith and little fight.

    AWWA·QG "Progress Eagle" Quantum Airplane

    The AWWA·QG “Progress Eagle” concept plane was “born” like his brother the AWWA·VA “Sky Whale” with the same airplane’s concept, designed for improving the physical characteristics of the commercial airplane and reducing the environmental impact, in the case of the “Progress Eagle” using the future advanced technologies of the 21st century, based in Quantum proprieties (latest advances in many different ambits like, nanoparticles-properties & applications, knowledge about subatomic particles). These concepts are based on the idea of thinking about the future “Super Jets” as if they were complex mathematical equations, with its constant and variable values which ever have a fixed result on a “safe transport”, with high performance and totally environment friendly.
    The “Sky Whale” was designed for a closer future, because the technology in which it is based could be feasible to produce in ten years’ time or less, is within our reach!

    Nepal earthquake videos
    http://www.usatoday.com/videos/news/...4/26/26363877/

    I am asking what should we do here in our BOINC community to try to help people in Nepal.

    We could crunch for one of Nepalese teams or try to send our help to them.

    I will try to be in the help of the Portuguese community to Nepal, small gifts can make a big difference on a such a poor country.

    We should try to HELP NEPAL.

    Dr Stephen Brusatte - Tyrannosaur Discoveries

    Dr Stephen Brusatte, Chancellor's Fellow in Vertebrate Palaentology, delivers the second 2014 Science on a Winter's Evening lecture entitled, Tyrannosaur Discoveries.

    In this lecture, Dr Brusatte introduces "Pinocchio rex" and other newly discovered tyrannosaurs, and describes how palaeontologists discover fossils, using cutting- edge techniques to study dinosaur evolution.

    Recorded on 4 December 2014 at the University of Edinburgh's Michael Swann Building.

    Very interesting video, and fascinating look at the science going on today. Thanks!


    If it's not broken, give me 5 more minutes!
