Ohio Resource Libraries: Tour Day 2
I’ll bet you wondered what happened to the posts for the second and third day of our journey! Well, the charger for my laptop was mislaid at the airport (likely O’Hare) and my laptop became an expensive paperweight for the remainder of the trip. My plans to use the computer at the hotel were dashed when we stayed at a decidedly dodgy Hawthorn Inn and Suites near Toledo, which didn’t have such luxuries. On the second day of our journey across Ohio, we got up at the crack of dawn (not Linda’s favorite time of day) to visit Northeast Ohio Medical University in Rootstown, Ohio. There, we met with&n...

Elon Musk ’s Moon Mission Is Exciting, Audacious … and Iffy
Elon Musk has been known to keep only few books on the shelf behind his desk at the SpaceX factory floor in Hawthorne, Calif. Most of them are basic books on rocket design. The remaining one is Einstein, the biography of the great physicist, by former TIME editor Walter Isaacson. There’s an odd push-pull in a man like Musk, who is humble enough to own a space launch company and yet still keep his how-to-build-a-rocket-ship books on display, and ambitious enough to make it clear who his role model appears to be.

The apple maggot fly -- how an altered sense of smell could drive the formation of new species
(National Centre for Biological Sciences) Scientists from the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore have gained insights into how evolution can be affected by a change in how an organism senses smells. Using apple flies as models, these scientists have shown that a switch in the wiring of two channels in the brain -- one coding for detection of hawthorn fruit smells, and one for apple, can potentially drive the formation of new species.

The Scoop On Finding A Healthy Plant-Based Protein Powder
Conclusion After completing this study, and factoring in the above, of all the plant based proteins I have tried, I would personally choose Nutiva's Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake in either vanilla or chocolate as my top choice. For me it is obvious since Nutiva is actually certified organic, is at a great affordable price, low in sugars (and not stevia) and has a great taste. Serving suggestion: Add 2 tablespoons of Hempseeds to your shake for an extra 8g of Protein and 1.7g Omega-3.Consider the addition of 1 tablespoon of Nutiva Coconut Manna (ie coconut butter) and water to eliminate the need for buying cartons of al...

After sending the Dragon capsule on its way, the first-stage booster peeled away. Instead of dropping into the Atlantic like leftover junk, the 15-story booster steered to an upright touchdown on the barge, withstanding 50 mph gusts. Engines slowed its descent, supporting...

[Report] Nematicity in stripe-ordered cuprates probed via resonant x-ray scattering
In underdoped cuprate superconductors, a rich competition occurs between superconductivity and charge density wave (CDW) order. Whether rotational symmetry-breaking (nematicity) occurs intrinsically and generically or as a consequence of other orders is under debate. Here, we employ resonant x-ray scattering in stripe-ordered superconductors (La,M)2CuO4 to probe the relationship between electronic nematicity of the Cu 3d orbitals, structure of the (La,M)2O2 layers, and CDW order. We find distinct temperature dependences for the structure of the (La,M)2O2 layers and the electronic nematicity of the CuO2 planes, with only th...
