          Comment on Laser Pointers by Jennifer Inman   
Hi Dr. Greene, I am a physicist who works at NASA, where I serve as the Chair of our Non-Ionizing Radiation Committee (i.e. the laser safety committee). We had noticed that some laser pointers appeared brighter than others and decided to conduct an informal test. Our laser safety officer purchased more than a dozen laser pointers off Amazon and we measured their power output at different wavelengths. Even though most (but not all) of the laser pointers were labeled as being Class 3A/5mW or less, we found that only ONE of them was close, measuring at 6 mW. The rest all exceeded this limit. A few were even over 80 mW. We found that much of the "extra" energy was in the infrared. Green laser light (around 532 nm) is generally created by starting with infrared laser light (around 1064 nm) and doubling it inside a crystal that combines photons through constructive interference. Laser pointers are supposed to have a small filter which block this residual infrared light, but because it is cheaper to NOT include the filter, many manufacturers don't. And because the light is outside the visible spectrum, it won't appear any brighter to your eye. The FDA is the regulatory mechanism responsible for enforcing the 5mW limit, but since many of these laser pointers arrive in large shipping containers from overseas, enforcement is difficult. Since conducting our study, Amazon has instituted an additional layer of screening on merchants selling laser pointers. (see this article about the 2013 change in policy: http://www.laserpointersafety.com/news/news/other-news_files/430accd1095e3cfa5345450a590d78ff-338.php#on ) This seems to have helped a great deal in reducing the number of laser pointers producing in excess of 5mW. But it has not eliminated the problem. A similar, more formal study (Hadler J, Tobares E, Dowell M. Random testing reveals excessive power in commercial laser pointers. J Laser Appl. 2013;25:032007) found that 90% of green laser pointers labeled as Class 3A (3R in the revised classification system) had outputs of greater than 5mW. A nice summary article can be found here: http://retinatoday.com/2015/04/laser-pointer-retinal-injures/ There has also been a growing number of more powerful lasers available on the consumer market that sometimes look nearly indistinguishable from low-power laser pointers. Wicked Lasers is one company that sells such lasers. For an example of an injury to a 15-yr old resulting from one such laser, see for example this letter to the Editor of the New England Journal of Medicine: http://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJMc1005818 Anyway, thanks for your blog. Hope you find this information useful. Kind regards, Jennifer

          Visualizing Epithelial Expression in Vertical and Horizontal Planes With Dual Axes Confocal Endomicroscope Using Compact Distal Scanner   
The epithelium is a thin layer of tissue that lines hollow organs, such as colon. Visualizing in vertical cross sections with sub-cellular resolution is essential to understanding early disease mechanisms that progress naturally in the plane perpendicular to the tissue surface. The dual axes confocal architecture collects optical sections in tissue by directing light at an angle incident to the surface using separate illumination and collection beams to reduce effects of scattering, enhance dynamic range, and increase imaging depth. This configuration allows for images to be collected in the vertical as well as horizontal planes. We designed a fast, compact monolithic scanner based on the principle of parametric resonance. The mirrors were fabricated using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology and were coated with aluminum to maximize near-infrared reflectivity. We achieved large axial displacements $> 400~\mu \text{m}$ and wide lateral deflections >20°. The MEMS chip has a $3.2\times2.9$ mm2 form factor that allows for efficient packaging in the distal end of an endomicroscope. Imaging can be performed in either the vertical or horizontal planes with $430~\mu \text{m}$ depth or $1 \times 1$ mm2 area, respectively, at 5 frames/s. We systemically administered a Cy5.5-labeled peptide that is specific for EGFR, and collected near-infrared fluorescence images ex vivo from pre-malignant mouse colonic epithelium to reveal the spatial distribution of this molecular target. Here, we demonstrate a novel scanning mechanism in a dual axes confocal endomicroscope that collects optical sections of- near-infrared fluorescence in either vertical or horizontal planes to visualize molecular expression in the epithelium.

These radio mics served me very well, getting carted all over the world from the Arizona Desert to Arctic Norway. They never let me down.So really I was in no rush to replace them. However when I was shown some of the neat features of the new UWP-D range of radio mics, I decided to get the UWP-D11 kit. This comprises a belt pack transmitter with a lavalier microphone, and a belt pack receiver that comes with belt clips and a camera mounting bracket.As a cameraman, I find microphones a pretty boring subject. But you know what? Audio is just as important as your pictures – some would say more important. Poor quality sound can really ruin an otherwise decent shot. Choosing the right microphone for the job is important: better still, bring in a sound recordist to look after the sound while you concentrate 100% on the pictures. Sadly however the reality on many of the shoots I’m involved with is that there isn’t the budget for a ‘soundie’. Nor is there the time or space to set up mic stands and fish poles with gun mics. What’s needed is something simple, quick and easy. This is where the ubiquitous radio mic comes into play.No more cables to snag!Being able to power the mic from the camera is hugely beneficial on longer shoots or in remote locations.You can clip a lavalier (tie clip) mic on to your subject quickly and easily. There are no cables to snag, and if you want you can do walking/talking shots. I think most camera crews will own at least one radio mic kit.But radio mics are traditionally a compromise. For years they have used old-fashioned FM radio to send the signal to the receiver… and this has a limited dynamic range and can be prone to noise and hiss. If your budget is big enough you can get around this with a pure digital radio mic system like Sony’s excellent DWX series. The DWX microphones use digital transmission to eliminate hiss. But much as I’d love a DWX system, for the type of work I do they are overkill.So I wasn’t sure about the UWP-D concept – a hybrid digital mic that uses digital processing combined with traditional FM transmission. That is until I got to play with one.Compact without sacrificing build qualityThe first thing I noticed was the size. The UWP-D series is quite a bit smaller than previous generations without sacrificing build quality. They are made from rugged aluminium alloy. The next obvious thing is the size of the LCD display, it’s much larger, clearer and easier to read. It has a backlight on a timer so it’s easy to see even if you’re working in the dark. The other external differences are a little less obvious, but just as important.On the bottom of the belt pack receiver there is a special new docking port that can be used to dock the microphone to an adapter for use with many of Sony’s video cameras. The docking port connects the receiver to a cradle. This then plugs in to the MI (Multi-Interface) Shoe that’s now present on a very wide range of Sony cameras, from the A7 DSLR’s to the consumer AX100 and the new XDCAM PXW series. When you use this cradle the mic is powered by the camera, and the audio passes directly to the camera via the adapter. No more cables to snag! Being able to power the mic from the camera is hugely beneficial on longer shoots or in remote locations. If your camera doesn’t have an MI shoe then all is not lost, as next to the special docking port there is also a micro USB socket. You can use this socket to power the radio mic from almost any standard USB type power supply such as a phone charger. Many cameras have powered USB ports on them – or you can get D-Tap to USB adapters. So there are lots of ways to power these mics. The belt pack transmitter is the same: it too has a micro USB port that can be used to charge the mic’s batteries if you use NiMH rechargeables.While I’m talking about the transmitter, it’s worth noting that this can be switched between mic and line level inputs. So if you need to take a remote feed from an audio desk you shouldn’t have any audio level issues – as can often be the case with transmitters that only accept mic level.Clever features – A true diversity receiver that prevents audio dropoutsBack to the receiver. It’s a true diversity receiver with two antennas. Now, many radio mics have two antennas, but this one actually has two independent receiver sections. The unit automatically switches extremely rapidly to the receiver that’s getting the best signal. This prevents those annoying momentary audio dropouts that can occur in buildings due to signal reflections and other interference. On the top of the receiver there’s a locking 3.5mm jack for the main balanced output, and next to that is a secondary headphone output that could also be used to feed a second camera if needed.The UWP-D radio mics have some clever features. The most useful to me is the ability to have the receiver scan for a clear and unused channel. Once it has found a clear channel it can set the frequency of the transmitter to match the receiver via infrared. This takes just moments to do, and is so much easier than messing around trying to manually enter channel numbers or frequencies. Once your frequency’s set, you can if you wish set the transmitter to a low power setting to make the batteries last longer. Although I do find that a set of good quality AA batteries will reliably give me a solid, non-stop half day’s use anyway.Improved dynamic range resulting in natural soundSo what about the ‘D’ bit in the UWP-D name? To get decent quality sound from an FM radio mic the audio from the transmitter is compressed, making it possible to transmit a wide dynamic range over a single FM channel. Then in the receiver the audio is expanded to restore a natural sound range. This process is called a ‘compander’ (Compression Expander). Traditional systems do this with basic analogue circuits, but in the UWP-D series the compander is digital. This results in improved dynamic range, allowing the mic to better handle transient sounds like claps, clicks and pops. The audio just sounds more natural. I also find that I have less hiss from these mics than my previous ones.On the surface the UWP-D may only seem like a small upgrade over the previous UWP-V series. But the improvements are many, and when combined together into this even smaller and neater package it makes them a worthwhile upgrade. Having used them for a little while now, I find them much more convenient and the audio really does sound better. I’m really pleased with them.

          re: How to Detox Heavy Metals to Help End Exhaustion and Chronic Fatigue   

This may sound counterintuitive. The ocean has all the minerals the body uses, a least 60 and maybe as many as 90. In my personal experience ocean bathing works as well or better than supplements in providing minerals to the body and at the same time the body is totally grounded and protectet from man made EMF so the absorption is not interfered with. I lived in CA and after Fukushimat I started taking KI, potassium iodide. A self test for iodine deficiency is to stain a patch of skin with iodine. If the stain disappears in less than 6 hours the body is absorbing it and it is deficient. In spite of taking KI, I tested deficient until I spent a week in La Paz, MX swimming in the ocean and then I no longer tested deficient. It would be interesting to do an actual before and after clinical trial to determine what is going on. I think that the skin is a better absorber and mediator of mineral intake than the average gut of the 21st century.

Can a green house be built that concentrates the infrared from the sun that will protect from UV? I live in Ecuador where there is much sun but little access to the latest lighting or it is expensive to import. Electricity is cheap though and 90% is hydroelectric.

For those who live far from the sea or where it is to cold to tolerate much, perhaps there is a salt water swimming pool nearby or you can build or convert your own. I would think that the detox program depletes some beneficila minerals as well as the toxic. After the sauna a jump in a cold saa water pool wwould be beneficial and at the same time ground and insulate from EMF. A rinse with filtered water after the dip would get rid of the toxins. Don't know. Just asking.

If you garden or farm, to replete the minerals in your soil, spray your plants with diluted, at least 4-1, sea water about twice a month. Observe!! They will absorb the minerals and the overspray will feed the soil microbes. Animals fed sea salt will excrete it and somehow they know enough not to over eat.

Mineral Depositions of Calcifying Skin Disorders are Predominantly Composed of Carbonate Apatite.

Acta Derm Venereol. 2017 Jun 29;:

Authors: Franzen M, Müller-More E, Cadamuro J, Koller J, Salmhofer W, Wohlmuth-Wieser I, Kronberger C, Salmhofer H

Abstract
Subcutaneous calcifications can lead to complications, including pain, inflammation, ulceration and immobilization. Studies on the pathophysiology of mineral compositions and effective treatment modalities are limited. We therefore studied 14 patients with subcutaneous calcifications. Mineral material was collected and analysed by Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. Blood analyses were run to evaluate systemic alterations of mineral metabolism. Carbonate apatite (CAP) was found to be the single constituent in the majority of patients (n = 9, 64.3%), 3 cases (21.4%) had a composition of CAP and calcium oxalate dihydrate and one case had a combination of CAP and magnesium ammonium phosphate, whereas CAP was the major component in all 4 cases. Only one case showed predominantly calcium oxalate. CAP was found to be the only or predominant component in subcutaneous calcifications. Chemical analyses of the mineral compositions may aid in the development of new treatment regimes to improve the solubility of mineral components and to decrease extraosseous calcifications.

          Mid-infrared images from the Subaru telescope extend Juno spacecraft discoveries   
(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) Subaru Telescope images reveal weather in Jupiter's atmosphere in the mid-infrared. High-resolution thermal imaging of Jupiter by the COoled Mid-Infrared Camera and Spectrometer (COMICS) mounted on the Subaru Telescope on Maunakea is providing information that extends and enhances the information that the Juno mission is gathering in its unprecedented mission to probe that planet's interior and deep atmospheric structure together with details of the magnetosphere and its auroral interactions with the planet.
          Remote Control Reflection   

Infrared radiation is widely used in technology, ranging from night vision (in which infrared radiation is detected when there isn’t enough visible light to see an object) to studying the composition of materials through a process called spectroscopy. In this activity, you will explore how the infrared radiation from a remote control interacts with different materials by trying to bounce the IR beam off of a material to control a television from around a corner.

          Nisi NANO4565IRND9G (NANO-4565-IRND-9-G) 4 x 5.65 IRND 0.9 Graduated Neutral Density Filter 186.21 +VAT   
The camera is different from the human eye. The dynamic range of the human eye is quite wide, allowing us to easily see detail in bright and dim areas simultaneously. While modern cameras have made great advances in range, they are still not able to match what we can see with our own eyes. They have trouble holding detail in scenes with a wide range of tones. To compensate for this, we can use ND Grads to selectively darken an area of the frame. NiSis IRND Grad uses the same patented infrared damping coating technology as the IRND filters. It absorbs the light from the IR spectrum, up to 1200 nm, effectively eliminating IR light pollution from reaching your sensor. This ensures that you are able to accurately and uniformly capture the full spectrum of visible light.

See for yourselves what mums said about the Luvion Prestige Touch 2:


Tested by mum Charlotte Minton for the M&B Awards 2017:


Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this; I loved the ease of use of the Luvion Prestige Touch 2. The manual had clear instructions, so I was able to set up and use quickly. The monitor has a touch part under the screen and a great joystick button to move through menus. I loved the pan, tilt and zoom function, on the monitor you use the joystick to change position of camera to see around room. The camera comes with fixing and mount for ceiling.

How did this product make your life easier?

The monitor has two way talk back, I was able to just press the talk button on top of the monitor so I could talk so baby would hear in her room, I also tested in my toddler’s room and she could hear me talking to her. This product has a great feature, it has preset lullaby music - you just press the lullaby icon and it plays music into the baby’s room, and you can adjust how loud it is on the camera. The camera also has a night light option also which is great and comes with fixings and mount to attach to ceiling if you wish.

Would you choose this product to win?

Overall this product is great, and it is packed full of features. The size of the HD monitor makes this product stand out, it is a 7" screen, which helped me view it easily at a glance. The look of the monitor stands out, it is a nice neutral glossy white, to suit most tastes, it even has an SD card slot to record to.


Tested by mum Zoe Mccoy for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The Luvion Prestige Touch 2 is the best monitor I have ever come across - it has all the best bits of other monitors combined. It is robust - the monitor has been dropped by my toddler and no scratches or breaks. The picture quality even in the dark is fantastic, it has a zoom feature and you can turn the camera all around and up and down. There is a 2-way talk feature and you can play lullabies from the hand-held monitor. The nightlight is a great feature as well. You can attach the camera to the wall or ceiling with attachments provided.

How did this product make your life easier?

It's fantastic to be able to watch baby sleep or kids play while you are doing other stuff about the house. I can still talk to them without shouting all over the house with the 2 way talk feature. I love that you get a mini screwdriver in the box so you can install the battery. This really made my day as it’s always a pain trying to find a screwdriver to fit.

Would you choose this product to win?

The Luvion Prestige Touch 2 has the best features from all baby monitors and is a fantastic piece of equipment. I have never heard of the brand before and haven't seen it sold anywhere but online. I think if more people knew about this they would definitely buy it.

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn't change anything about the equipment itself, it is fantastic.

          Defend Your Glow with HydroPeptide Solar Defense Products   

Defend Your Glow with HydroPeptide Solar Defense Products

We're all in search of the "secret" to slow down aging. One of the most powerful ways to put the brakes on wrinkles and sagging skin and protect the results you are achieving with all those great skincare products is not a secret at all. It's sunscreen. Some may cringe when they hear this news, estheticians and dermatologists experience this all the time hearing things like, "I'm just not someone who wears sunscreen", "I hate the way it feels" or "I don’t live in a sunny area so I don't need sunscreen, but I'm always sure to wear it when I go on vacation." The fact is we need sunscreen year-round, no matter the weather.

HydroPeptide Solar Defense TINTED Broad Spectrum SPF 30When it is sunny we are exposed to UVA or "aging" rays as well as UVB or "burning" rays. We all understand why sunscreen is important in direct sunlight as we want to avoid getting a sunburn. However, when it is cloudy, even though we are not getting the "burning" rays, the "aging" rays can still make it through the clouds. These rays break down our collagen and cause wrinkles, beginning around the eye area where the skin is the thinnest and working their way to our entire face, neck and décolleté over time.

Additionally, many people think they are most at risk while they are at the beach or somewhere else sunny but given that most of us vacation only once or twice per year and we are more likely to wear sunscreen during these times, we actually gain the majority of our sun exposure going about our daily lives; walking from our car to the office, getting the mail, going in and out of the grocery store. These small exposures add up to cumulative sun damage that far exceeds our few days at the beach wearing sunscreen. So, love the idea of preventing aging but hate the thought of sunscreen? Maybe you just haven't found the right product.

HydroPeptide Solar Defense Non-Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF 50"HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle + Protect products are the sunscreen for people who hate using sunscreen. They overcome all of the reasons people choose not to add this important step to their routine while protecting from UVA, UVB and Infrared damage. These three powerful sunscreens include Solar Defense Tinted SPF 30 for face, Solar Defense Non-Tinted SPF 50 for face, and Solar Defense Body, a SPF 40 spray with 80 minutes water resistance. A top concern about sunscreen is it can be white or chalky but not with these products. In fact, Solar Defense Tinted has color adjusting spheres that blend to any skin tone and cover minor imperfections.

HydroPeptide Solar Defense Body Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 40Additionally, many people with sensitive or breakout-prone skin are afraid sunscreen will break them out but Solar Defense products leave a light, matte finish and incorporate Galanga Root which helps to maintain a clearer complexion so they're great for absolutely any skin type. The final plus is the luxurious scent, whether you prefer the Acai aroma of the Tinted, the Passionfruit essence in the body spray or want to go scent-free with Non-Tinted, you'll never have an overpowering "sunscreen smell" with these products which makes them perfect for daily use. You can find HydroPeptide Solar Defense products on EDCskincare.com or at medical clinics and luxury resorts throughout the world.

          Effect of thermal stress on the space charge distribution of 160 kV HVDC cable insulation material   
The injection and accumulation of space charge in the bulk of XLPE insulation will be intensified due to the ageing of HVDC cable insulation which will affect the normal operation of the HVDC cable. In this paper, the effects of thermal stress of different endurance time and temperature on the space charge distribution of HVDC cable were studied. The samples used in the tests were all slices of 160 kV DC cable insulation and the thermal stress temperatures were 90 and 135 °C, which represented the low temperature thermal stress and high temperature stress, respectively. The Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) method was used to measure the space charge accumulation and decay characteristics of the samples. And then, the electron trap properties of the test samples were analyzed based on the PEA space charge decay model. Meanwhile, in order to further understand the influence of thermal stress on the physicochemical property of the samples, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrum (FTIR) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) tests were conducted in this paper. The results showed that the 90 °C thermal treating could help to improve the crystalline morphologies of the XLPE at the early stage which led to the decrease of electro traps and space charge density. However, for a much longer thermal stress, the total amount of space charge would trend to increase with the gradually degradation of the XLPE caused by long term thermal stress. Besides, the high temperature thermal stress of 135 °C caused the rapid degradation of the XLPE molecular structure, reducing the crystallinity, creating more deep traps in the insulation and resulting in the accumulation of space charge. With more deep electron traps, the de-trapping process became much more difficult and slower.
          Structural, dynamic mechanical and dielectric properties of mesoporous silica/epoxy resin nanocomposites   
Research of mesoporous silica/polymer composite indicated that the mechanical property and thermal stability of the composite were remarkably enhanced due to the effective utilization of nanopore specific surface area. Furthermore, the performance of the mesoporous silica/polymer under a high electric field was promising. In this work, an organic-inorganic hybrid structure composed of mesoporous silica (SBA-15) and epoxy resin was prepared. The silane coupling agent, KH550, was used to enhance the interaction between the particles and the epoxy molecules, and the particles were more evenly dispersed in the polymer matrix. Nitrogen adsorption-desorption and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy experiments showed that the KH550 molecules spread into the nanopores, and reacted with the hydroxyl group of the SBA-15 particles. The transmission electron microscopy analysis for the composites showed that the epoxy was inserted into the nanopores of SBA-15, and an organic-inorganic hybrid structure composite was formed. The dynamic mechanical and dielectric properties of the composite were studied. The storage modulus at 120 °C, glass transition temperature, and AC breakdown strength for 0.3 wt% SBA-15-KH550/epoxy composite were 1784 MPa, 148.2 °C, and 56.2 kV/mm, increased 1241%, 14%, and 73% compared to those of pure epoxy, respectively. Moreover, the permittivity for the 0.3 wt% SBA-15-KH550/epoxy composite decreased from 3.10 (pure epoxy) to 2.73 due to the voids provided by the unfilled nanopores and the improved interfacial interaction between the SBA-15 and the epoxy.
          Studies on high temperature vulcanized silicone rubber insulators under arid climatic aging   
In recent times, high temperature vulcanized (HTV) silicone rubber (SIR) insulators featuring several advantages, have gained importance over conventional ceramic and glass insulators. However, environmental stresses and electrical discharge activities degrade their superior performance therefore long term reliability of polymeric insulators is still under investigation. In the present work, arid climate aging experiments are carried out on SIR and effects of dry thermal exposure on composite insulators are investigated. Hydrophobicity recovery phenomenon for contaminated polymeric insulator sheds is reported with elevated temperature and a method proposed for achieving uniformity in pollution layer is also highlighted. Furthermore, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) techniques are utilized to assess and analyze the changes in the material properties. The consequence of arid heating on tensile strength of SIR is evaluated. Also the dry flashover studies are carried out to discern the concerns related to the effects on thermally aged SIR insulators due to sudden overvoltages occurring in transmission lines.
          Thermo-oxidative aging analysis of HTV silicone rubber used for outdoor insulation   
In China high temperature vulcanized (HTV) silicone rubber has been applied to manufacture the sheds and sheath of composite insulators for decades. Being exposed to environmental stressors including sunlight, UV radiation, oxidization, electrical stress and moisture throughout the whole operation period, various aging phenomena could be observed, among which color fading and hardening are two important indexes which may be directly related to the performance of composite insulators. According to polymer aging theory, thermo-oxidative could be the main aging reaction leading to the hardening of HTV silicone rubber and in this paper, Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) combined with Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Infrared Spectroscopy (IR) and Mass Spectroscopy (MS) are applied to study the degradation and decomposition process of HTV silicone rubber in air (oxidizing atmosphere) and nitrogen (inert atmosphere) respectively. 18 composite insulator specimens have been collected and their color fading degree, hardness, crosslink density as well as thermal performance have been measured and calculated. A correlation analysis showed that physical crosslink density had a strong positive relation with hardness of specimens whereas chemical crosslink density showed negative relations with hardness. It is concluded that TGA is an effective method to simulate and study the thermo-oxidative aging process of HTV silicone rubber and the measurement results of crosslink density shows that decomposition and over crosslinking reactions have taken place simultaneously in HTV silicone rubber and led to the aging of composite insulators together.
          Improved DC performance of crosslinked polyethylene insulation depending on a higher purity   
Super-clean crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) has been widely used in DC power cables. In order to understand the nature of purity dependence of electrical insulation performance, two kinds of insulating XLPE materials used in AC and DC high voltage cables, whose abbreviation were AC-XLPE and DC-XLPE respectively, were investigated in this paper. The results showed that DC-XLPE had a relative higher DC electrical conductivity and relative lower thermal activation energy than AC-XLPE, which was governed by the trap characteristics. The thermal activation energies could match the energy depths of the bulk deep traps calculated by thermal stimulated current. Both positive and negative charges can be found in AC-XLPE while there were only positive charges in DC-XLPE. Meanwhile, DC-XLPE showed higher electric breakdown strength than AC-XLPE. It was proposed that the improved DC insulation performance of DC-XLPE was closely related to its higher purity. The Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy results showed AC-XLPE contained more polar groups such as carbonyl groups than DC-XPLE, which were caused by antioxidants. The oxidative induction times verified a higher content of antioxidant in AC-XLPE. X-ray diffraction showed little difference of crystallinity between two samples, but DC-XLPE exhibited a larger spherulite size. As a result, it is suggested that more efforts should be made to achieve higher purity of XLPE in HVDC insulation.
          Study of dielectric strength in EPDM by nondestructive dynamic mechanical analysis in high electrical field   
In the present work the value of the degree of the area swept by the polymer chain due to an electrical force for a given mesostructure was related to the corresponding value of the dielectric strength. This value was deduced from the electric inclusion formalism applied to dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) studies conducted under high electric field, which were performed in commercial ethylene-propylene-diene M-class rubber (EPDM); used for the housing of polymeric electrical insulators. EPDM samples with different arrangements of the polymer chains and crystalline degree, promoted by controlled neutron irradiation were studied. Several characterization techniques, as infrared absorption spectroscopy (IR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) and dielectric strength (DS) were also used. The relationship between the DS and the degree of movement of polymer chains promoted by electrical forces coming from the electric field applied in a non destructive test as the DMA was successfully established. In fact, a larger empty space in the sample leads to larger areas swept by the polymer chains during bending under the application of the field strength in the dynamic mechanical analysis tests. Therefore, an increase in the capability of movement of charges occurs, corresponding to smaller dielectric strength values. Crystallinity improves the dielectric strength due to the increase in the internal stresses which decreases the capability of movement of the polymer chains and electric carriers by electric forces.
          Polypropylene-nanoclay composites under electron irradiation in SEM: Structure, charge trapping and electron emission properties   
In this work, polypropylene (PP) and its polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) films containing very low contents (2–6 wt %) of Cloisite 20A natural montmorillonite clay platelets were investigated. In a first, they were characterized by means of several analytical techniques such as X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and UV-visible spectroscopy. Secondly, the nanocomposites are submitted to an electron beam in a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and the induced currents are measured using a time-resolved current method. These currents are used to determine the trapped charge and the electron emission yield. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of the effect of different concentrations of nanoclay platelets on the studied properties by correlating the results obtained by both techniques. The analytical characterization showed that upon the increase of nanoclays concentration an intercalated structure and an increase of crystallinity are induced. On the other hand, the optical band gap energy is modified because the increasing of the density of localized states in the forbidden energy band. As regards the measurement of the trapped charge, it was found, surprisingly, that not only the leakage current increases as a function of clay loading level but also the trapped charge (or the surface potential). This could be related to the increase of conductivity in one hand and to proliferation of interfaces between nanoparticles and neighboring materials on the other hand.

          Stay Cool    

Summer officially started this week. Has anyone checked with Mother Nature? Are we sure she got the memo? Seriously, sometimes I can’t tell where we are with the weather. I don’t really mind the hot weather at all, as long as I can do things like jump in a river, or ride my bike. The warmer days had me thinking about an interesting topic that spans a bit more than just electricity and magnetism, but I thought it might be interesting anyway. How do we cool things down?

I’ve always been fascinated by this actually. Even as a child, I could understand, heating things up was easy. Fire is easy. Warming myself up in winter with a heavier jacket was easy. Cooling things down is always trickier, and there are several ways to do it. To get a better understanding of how we cool things down, we have to start at the very basics. What is temperature? Actually, what we call temperature is a measure of motion, specifically of atoms and particles. They’re not moving from A to B, but rather, vibrating in place, or in the case of gases, moving around haphazardly. The faster they move, the higher the temperature of the substance. When all motion stops, the substance if brutally cold. So cold, in fact, that it has a special name: absolute zero. Absolute zero is approximately -273.15 Celsius or -459.67 Fahrenheit. We even have a temperature scale that starts at absolute zero, called the Kelvin scale. 0 Kelvin is absolute zero. The motion of the atoms or particles also gives off something called black body radiation. This is simply thermal-spectrum electromagnetic radiation. As such, it’s part of the electromagnetic spectrum I wrote about some time ago. This is how infrared cameras work as well as any thermal imaging camera.

With that background in place, it’ll make more sense when I explain certain cooling methods we commonly use. One of the most efficient and effective cooling methods is gas decompression. This is how nearly all refrigerators, air conditioners and heat pumps work. In any gas, the molecules comprising the gas are spaced pretty far apart. When you compress them into a tinier volume of space, the gas will increase in temperature. Is this because the particles are now hitting each other more often and creating more frictional heating? It would be nice if that’s how it worked, but it’s actually a bit more complicated than that. The simplest way to understand heating of compressed gas is to understand conservation of energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Compressing a gas requires some amount of energy, and that energy has to go somewhere. It ends up going into the gas causing the particles to move faster, which we observe as heat. From a physical standpoint, the gas particles are interacting with the boundaries of their space more frequently as the space containing them shrinks. The most scientifically accurate explanation of the temperature increase is that by reducing the available volume of space, you’re increasing your theoretical knowledge of where each particle is. Instead of being somewhere in a huge volume of space, each particle is now in some much smaller volume. You’re decreasing the entropy of the gas. That knowledge doesn’t come free though. The particles essentially say, “ok, we’ll let you know more about where we are, but in turn we’re going to let you know less about our speeds, because we’re going to move faster.”

Whew…all of that. Are you still with me? Hadley, you haven’t mentioned a single thing about cooling yet! Just heating! Yes, but now all the pieces are available. When we compress a gas, it heats up for the reasons stated above, but we can do something with that heat. We don’t have to let the gas just stay hot. This is what refrigerators do. Once they compress a gas, they pass it through some type of heat sink. This is a device that allows the heat of the gas/fluid inside to dissipate as quickly as possible to the ambient environment. Once this happens, we have a roughly room temperature compressed gas. If we allow the gas to decompress, its temperature will fall…to below room temperature. The particles are now saying, “ok, you’re increasing our volume, and this means you’ll know less about where we are. So to compensate, we’ll slow down a bit so you can at least know how fast we’re going.” Obviously the trick in any of these refrigeration systems is being able to compress the gas a lot as well as being able to efficiently remove the heat from the compressed gas.

This process will work for any gas, including air. In fact, I encounter this phenomenon every time I air down the tires on my bike. The tires are filled with ordinary air, compressed to between 90 and 110 PSI. When initially pressurized, they do heat up, but over time, they cool to ambient temperature. When I rapidly release the pressure, the valve becomes noticeably cold to the touch. In most refrigeration, we don’t use air, we use some kind of refrigerant, like Freon. Freon is the trademark name for any number of different gasses used as refrigerants known as halocarbons. You’ve probably heard of at least some of these by their scientific name, chlorofluorocarbons (abbreviated CFCs). These are the same CFCs that scientists discovered were causing ozone depletion in the 1980s and 1990s, so they aren’t in widespread use anymore. All refrigerants are just special types of gas that have properties that are beneficial to what we’ll be doing with them.

The important thing to remember is that if you’re unable to remove the heat from the compressed gas, and you let it decompress, all it will do is decrease back to roughly room temperature where it started. So it won’t be cool the way we want it. If you want the gas to be very cold, you have to make its starting temperature less. There is actually no limit to this (beyond absolute zero) and this is how we create extremely cold substances like liquid nitrogen. In fact, you can sometimes create bits of dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) by releasing a fire extinguisher into a burlap sack. The CO2 in the fire extinguisher is compressed, and if it’s been sitting long enough, it’s also at room temperature. Releasing the pressure causes a large decrease in temperature. So large that the gas actually solidifies into its solid state.

Hopefully this was an interesting slight deviation from my usual topics of electromagentism.

We present a novel extended-focus optical coherence microscope (OCM) attaining 0.7 μm axial and 0.4 μm lateral resolution maintained over a depth of 40 μm, while preserving the advantages of Fourier domain OCM. Our system uses an ultra-broad spectrum from a supercontinuum laser source. As the spectrum spans from near-infrared to visible wavelengths (240 nm in bandwidth), we call the system visOCM. The combination of such a broad spectrum with a high-NA objective creates an almost isotropic 3D submicron resolution. We analyze the imaging performance of visOCM on microbead samples and demonstrate its image quality on cell cultures and ex-vivo brain tissue of both healthy and alzheimeric mice. In addition to neuronal cell bodies, fibers and plaques, visOCM imaging of brain tissue reveals fine vascular structures and sub-cellular features through its high spatial resolution. Sub-cellular structures were also observed in live cells and were further revealed through a protocol traditionally used for OCT angiography.

Hangovers happen. Hopefully, not too often - but we're not judging. Whether it's the last party favor left after a good evening out or the unintended consequence of a friend's poor mixology skills, we've got you covered.

While hosting Shape Magazine's L.A. Body Shop event earlier this summer Pretty Little Liars actress, Shay Mitchell, told Shape her go-to hangover trick:

"Food, food, and more food to soak it all up. I also suggest reminding yourself during that state of too many beers to order food. And the next day? Loose clothing—just pajamas—and if you can, get in a sweat sesh. Not a workout sweat sesh, but literally sit in a sauna or steam room or go to a Korean spa and literally sweat it out."

We couldn't agree more on the inclusion of high-quality calories when you're planning on drinking and as for the sweating? An infrared sauna sweat is our favorite - learn more from an infrared pro here. Korean spas more your style? You might die laughing over our simple "Korean Spa Rules".

          Bagaimana Cara Kerja Teleskop Antariksa Hubble?   
Teleskop Antariksa Hubble dipotret oleh astronot dari dalam pesawat ulang alik. Kredit: NASA/ESA
Info Astronomy - Teleskop Antariksa Hubble saat ini dianggap sebagai karya ilmiah manusia yang paling sukses. Bagaimana tidak, berkat Hubble kini kita bisa melihat benda-benda alam semesta jauh. Tapi, bagaimana cara kerja Hubble dalam memotret gambar?

Diluncurkan pada tahun 1990, Hubble adalah teleskop yang mengorbit di atas atmosfer Bumi. Hubble telah berjasa dalam menyajikan gambar-gambar alam semesta yang telah membantu peradaban manusia dalam memecahkan beberapa misteri terbesar di jagad raya.

Tidak hanya dianggap sebagai salah satu misi sains yang paling sukses, Teleskop Antariksa Hubble juga merupakan wujud kemajuan terbesar yang pernah dilakukan manusia di luar angkasa.

Teknologi Hubble

Setiap 97 menit sekali, Teleskop Antariksa Hubble menyelesaikan satu revolusinya terhadap Bumi. Ia mengorbit Bumi kita dengan kecepatan sekitar 8 km per detik. Bahan bakar apa yang dipakai untuk mengorbit secepat ini?

Untuk dapat mengorbit Bumi, pada dasarnya Teleskop Antariksa Hubble maupun satelit-satelit buatan lainnya di orbit Bumi tidak membutuhkan bahan bakar, apa lagi bahan bakar bensin yang notabene hanya untuk kendaraan manusia di permukaan Bumi.

Menurut hukum kekekalan energi mekanik yang telah kita semua pelajari sewaktu sekolah menengah, dikatakan benda diam akan terus diam sampai ada gaya yang menggerakkannya, begitu juga benda bergerak akan terus bergerak sampai ada gaya yang menghambatnya.

Karena di luar angkasa tidak ada udara (ruang vakum), maka tidak ada gaya gesek yang menghambat laju Teleskop Antariksa Hubble (atau laju benda apapun) setelah dirilis oleh roket yang meluncurkannya, sehingga ia akan terus bergerak mengelilingi Bumi.

Kembali ke topik utama, Hubble adalah jenis teleskop yang dikenal sebagai reflektor Cassegrain. Cahaya dari benda-benda alam semesta yang menyentuh cermin utama Hubble, atau cermin primer, kemudian akan memantul ke cermin sekunder. Cermin sekunder memfokuskan cahaya melalui lubang di tengah cermin utama yang mengarah ke instrumen teleskop.

Orang sering keliru bahwa kekuatan teleskop terletak pada kemampuannya untuk memperbesar objek. Namun sebenarnya, kemampuan teleskop yang sebenarnya adalah kemampuan untuk mengumpulkan cahaya sebanyak-banyaknya dari yang mata manusia bisa lakukan.

Cermin primer Hubble berdiameter sekitar 2,4 meter. Cermin ini berukuran lebih kecil dibandingkan dengan teleskop berbasis darat, yang dapat mencapai 10 meter bahkan lebih. Namun Hubble memiliki kelebihan tersendiri: ia ditempatkan di luar atmosfer sehingga memberikan kejelasan yang luar biasa.

Setelah cermin menangkap cahaya, instrumen ilmiah Hubble yang disematkan pada badannya bakal bekerja sama atau sendiri-sendiri untuk memberikan pengamatan. Setiap instrumen dirancang untuk meneliti alam semesta dengan cara yang berbeda.

Seperti yang diketahui oleh fotografer manapun di dunia, kamera Anda harus stabil agar bisa mendapatkan gambar yang tajam, terutama saat memotret objek yang jauh. Konsep yang sama faktanya juga berlaku untuk Hubble, namun bedanya adalah teleskop ini tidak memiliki tripod untuk keseimbangan.

Walau begitu, Hubble dilengkapi teknologi penyeimbang yang bisa mengunci target atau objek yang akan diamati tanpa menyimpang lebih dari 7/1000 detik busur, atau sekitar lebar rambut manusia yang terlihat dari jarak satu mil.

Hal inilah yang membuat gambar-gambar alam semesta yang dipotret Hubble tampak selalu tajam walaupun ia bergerak sangat cepat dalam mengorbit Bumi kita.

Instrumen-instrumen Hubble

Untuk mengaktifkan instrumen-instrumen ilmiahnya, Hubble memanfaatkan sinar Matahari yang ia serap dengan dua panel surya utamanya. Kedua panel surya tersebut masing-masing selebar 7,7 meter yang mampu mengubah sinar Matahari menjadi listrik.

Lalu, bagaimana kinerja Hubble ketika ia tidak tersinari Matahari? Untungnya, Hubble juga dilengkapi teknologi yang dapat menyimpan sebagian dari listrik yang dimilikinya dan di dalam sebuah baterai untuk mempertahankan kekuatannya bila tidak tersinari Matahari.

Hubble memiliki seperangkat instrumen ilmiah yang telah sering diperbarui selama ini. Instrumen yang paling kuat adalah Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), yang memungkinkan Hubble menangkap gambar beresolusi lebih besar dibanding perangkat lainnya. WFC3 bahkan mampu mempelajari energi gelap, materi gelap, dan pembentukan bintang secara individu.

Instrumen WFC3 memiliki dua saluran: satu untuk sinar ultraviolet dan cahaya tampak, serta yang lainnya untuk inframerah-dekat (near-infrared). Kedua saluran pada WFC3 ini akan memproses gambar dalam cara yang berbeda.

Anda bisa melihat perbedaan kedua foto Carina Nebula ini yang dipotret dengan Hubble menggunakan instrumen WFC3. Foto pertama menggunakan cahaya tampak:

Dan yang ini dipotret dalam inframerah-dekat:

Instrumen lain Hubble yang terbilang baru adalah spektrograf yang mampu melihat secara eksklusif dalam cahaya ultraviolet. Spektrograf tersebut bernama Cosmic Origins Spectograph (COS). Instrumen ini bekerja seperti prisma, memisahkan cahaya dari alam semesta menjadi warna komponennya.

COS mampu memberikan gambar objek yang diamati Hubble dalam berbagai panjang gelombang, yang dapat memberikan informasi tentang suhu, komposisi kimia, densitas, dan gerak objek yang diamati. COS berperan meningkatkan sensitivitas ultraviolet Hubble setidaknya 10 kali, dan bahkan sampai 70 kali ketika mengamati benda-benda yang sangat samar.

Bagaimana Hubble Mengirim Gambar ke Bumi?

Teleskop Antariksa Hubble dilengkapi dua antena komunikasi. Antena-antena tersebut berguna sebagai media pengiriman dan penerimaan informasi antara Hubble dan tim pengoperasian di Goddard Flight Center di Greenbelt, AS.

Untuk dapat berkomunikasi, tim pengoperasian menggunakan satelit untuk mengirimkan sinyal ke antena komunikasi Hubble. Sinyal tersebut berisi satu set algoritma petunjuk dan perintah yang harus dilakukan Hubble.

Teleskop Antariksa Hubble memiliki dua komputer utama dan sejumlah sistem yang lebih kecil. Salah satu komputer utama menangani perintah dan seluruh sistem fungsi. Sementara komputer lainnya berfungsi untuk menerima data dan mengirimnya ke satelit yang pada gilirannya mengirimkan ke tim pengoperasian.

Data yang dikirim dari Hubble juga masih merupakan data mentah berupa gelombang elektromagnetik. Setelah diterima tim pengoperasian, staf-staf di sana akan menerjemahkan data ke dalam unit-unit baru seperti gambar maupun video.

Sekadar informasi, Hubble mampu mengirimkan data yang cukup untuk mengisi sekitar 18 DVD setiap minggu. Para astronom maupun masyarakat umum dapat dengan mudah mengunduh data-data itu melalui Internet dan menganalisa dari mana saja di dunia.

Walaupun saat ini Hubble masih sangat aktif, teleskop antariksa tersebut nyatanya sudah berusia tua. Penggantinya bahkan sudah disiapkan untuk diluncurkan pada tahun 2018 mendatang, yakni Teleskop Antariksa James Webb. Penerus Hubble ini diklaim akan jauh lebih mengagumkan hingga bahkan nantinya akan mampu menemukan galaksi pertama yang terbentuk di alam semesta awal.

          Simultaneous Lightwave Information and Power Transfer (SLIPT) for Indoor IoT Applications. (arXiv:1706.09624v1 [cs.IT])   

Authors: Panagiotis D. Diamantoulakis, George K. Karagiannidis

We present the concept of Simultaneous Lightwave Information and Power Transfer (SLIPT) for indoor Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Specifically, we propose novel and fundamental SLIPT strategies, which can be implemented through Visible Light or Infrared communication systems, equipped with a simple solar panel-based receiver. These strategies are performed at the transmitter or at the receiver, or at both sides, named Adjusting transmission, Adjusting reception and Coordinated adjustment of transmission and reception, correspondingly. Furthermore, we deal with the fundamental trade-off between harvested energy and quality-of-service (QoS), by maximizing the harvested energy, while achieving the required user's QoS. To this end, two optimization problems are formulated and optimally solved. Computer simulations validate the optimum solutions and reveal that the proposed strategies considerably increase the harvested energy, compared to SLIPT with fixed policies.


          From Faddeev-Kulish to LSZ. Towards a non-perturbative description of colliding electrons. (arXiv:1706.09057v1 [hep-th] CROSS LISTED)   

Authors: Wojciech Dybalski

In a low energy approximation of the massless Yukawa theory (Nelson model) we derive a Faddeev-Kulish type formula for the scattering matrix of $N$ electrons and reformulate it in LSZ terms. To this end, we perform a decomposition of the infrared finite Dollard modifier into clouds of real and virtual photons, whose infrared divergencies mutually cancel. We point out that in the original work of Faddeev and Kulish the clouds of real photons are omitted, and consequently their scattering matrix is ill-defined on the Fock space of free electrons. To support our observations, we compare our final LSZ expression for $N=1$ with a rigorous non-perturbative construction due to Pizzo. While our discussion contains some heuristic steps, they can be formulated as clear-cut mathematical conjectures.

          Bacon Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Summer Squash Succotash    
[FTC Standard Disclaimer]  This post is sponsored by Smithfield's line of Marinated Fresh Pork products.  Any stated opinions are my own.

Summer time is here and that means time for some of the best vegetables of the year.  Summer can also mean chaotic schedules but that doesn't mean you don't have time to make a quick dinner like this Bacon Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Summer Squash Succotash.

Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork #RealFlavorRealFast

I was able to get this done in about 30 minutes because I used Smithfield's Hardwood Smoked Bacon and Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin for the main course.  They already did the prep work for me, including that bacon crust.  I didn't have to do anything other than take it out of the package and roast it.

Since Smithfield uses only 100% fresh pork in these products, we wanted to use the freshest vegetables.  So we headed to the Farmers Market in Maryville, Tennessee to see what the local farms had to offer.

We ended up buying corn (not all of it!), yellow squash, yellow and green zucchini, bell pepper, sweet onion, and some small variety tomatoes.

Normally I lean towards contrasting flavors but Alexis had the idea to echo the tastes of hardwood smoked bacon and cracked black pepper in our succotash.  She was absolutely right because this was perfect together. The roasted tomatoes brought it all together with their sweet, slightly acidic flavor brightening the entire dish. 

Bacon Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Summer Squash Succotash #RealFlavorRealFast

Bacon Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Summer Squash Succotash

Ingredients




  • Smithfield Hardwood Smoked Bacon and Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • 6 slices Smithfield Hometown Original Sliced Bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups Summer squash, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1 cup diced sweet onion
  • 1 cup fire roasted corn kernels (about 2 ears or 1 can, drained)
  • 1/3 cup fire roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Set up your grill for indirect cooking and preheat it to 425°f (medium-high heat).
  2. Fire roast the tomatoes and pork.  Lightly coat the tomatoes with a small amount (1/2 teaspoon or so) of olive oil and season with kosher salt.  Place on a small roasting pan.  Place the pan and the Smithfield pork tenderloin on the grill, close the lid and roast until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140°f - about 25 to 30 minutes.  Meanwhile make the succotash.
  3. Preheat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-low heat on a grill side burner or stove top.  Add the chopped bacon and cooked until the bacon is crisp, about 8 minutes.  Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate.  Remove all but 2-3 tablespoons of rendered bacon fat.
  4. Add the squash and onion and season with salt and pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until they are tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.  
  5. Add the corn and bell pepper, stir to mix in and cook until warmed through, about 1-2 minutes. Taste for seasoning, adjust with salt and pepper as desired.  Remove from heat and garnish with bacon crumbles.
  6. Remove the tomatoes and Smithfield pork tenderloin from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. 
  7. Slice the tenderloin and serve with the roasted tomatoes and Summer squash succotash.

Notes/Substitutions 


  • Hardwood Smoked Bacon and Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin - This actually also goes well with Smithfield's Roasted Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Tenderloin as well.  They have expanded their marinated fresh products to include a wide variety of fresh cuts, including pork roasts, loin filets, sirloins, pork chops and tenderloins, and can be sliced or cubed for even faster cooking. 

  • Summer squash blend - We ended up using the yellow and green zucchini but you can use whatever is fresh and in season.



Fresh pork and fresh veggies - hard to go wrong there.

You can buy fire roasted corn on the canned vegetable aisle now and jarred fire roasted red bell peppers are available as well.  I prefer to do my own and grilled these on a gas powered infrared grill.

How to remove corn from the cob
With normal sized ears, you get about 1/2 cup of corn per ear.

I fire roasted mine on a kamado style grill but you can use a kettle grill, gas grill, pellet cooker, or even your oven.  The typical indirect set up for a kamado grill is like this, with a plate setter or heat deflector between the meat and the hot coals. Obviously you take the meat out of the package, this is just for demonstration purposes.

That set up works fine.  But what works even better is to use a raised rack on your grill or the upper rack of your oven.  Positioning the meat higher up in the grill will let you use the heat reflecting down from the grill lid to do a better job of crisping that bacon on top of the roast.  Here I used a simple homemade raised rack consisting of a spare grill grate and 4 legs made out of bolts, nuts, and washers.

The bacon in the crust is already hardwood smoked but I used natural hardwood lump coal for fire roasting the pork tenderloin to reinforce the smokiness.

When you put the tenderloin on the grill, make sure that the bacon crust is facing upwards.  It will be obvious which side is the bacon crust once you open the package.  That's parchment paper under the tomatoes, I use it for easier clean up.  I used Korean sea salt on the tomatoes because I like the huge flakes but kosher salt works fine.

Mise en place (aka "mess in place") makes your cooking easier.  You can have all of this prepped out the night before and save even more time.

Side burners on grills tend to run hotter than stove top burners, so it helps greatly to use a heavy bottom pan like this cast iron pan.  

Tip:  If you want to take the Smithfield Hardwood Smoked Bacon and Cracked Black Pepper Marinated Fresh Pork Tenderloin to the next level, spritz it every 10 minutes with an 8:1 mixture of apple juice and bourbon.  The sweet smoky flavor rocks with the bacon and black pepper.


Summer Squash Succotash recipe
You can just stir yours but I like to toss the veggies to get that rendered bacon and seasoning all over them.

recipe ideas summer squash and or zucchini
Once your squash is just starting to turn tender, it is time to add the other veggies.  It took right at 5 minutes for mine but it could take as long as 8.

Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork #RealFlavorRealFast
Mmmmm crispy bacon.  Fire roasting the tomatoes makes them tender and concentrates their naturally sweet taste.

Summer squash zucchini succotash
The general rule of thumb is that eating a color variety of vegetables is good for you so this must be a multi-vitamin! 

Handle the roast carefully when taking it off.  I recommend using a long spatula instead of tongs because squeezing the tongs can break off pieces of the crust.

Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork #RealFlavorRealFast
I surprised myself that I was able to get this done in 30 minutes.  I'm notorious for dragging out dinner and eating at 8pm.
Here's another idea for using their Marinated Fresh Pork products.

          Bacon Jam and Tomato Burgers   
[FTC Standard Disclaimer] We are proud to be sponsored by Certified Angus Beef.  We have no affiliation with Food City or Schweid and Sons.

This is a crazy good burger. It's one of my favorites that we've ever made.  It has a Certified Angus Beef prime burger with quite possibly the best burger condiment ever - bacon jam.

Bacon Jam and Tomato Burger featuring Certified Angus Beef Schweid and Sons

This burger started on the meat aisle at our Food City when Alexis pointed out these gourmet 1/3rd pound burgers that they had just gotten in.  


Bacon Jam and Tomato Burger featuring Certified Angus Beef Schweid and Sons
Normally, I like to make my own burger patties but I saw that they were made with prime grade Certified Angus Beef and thought I would give them a try. 

We started talking about what would be the perfect topping for a great burger and she reminded me of some bacon jam that we had made last year.  The complex smoky bacon and sweet onion flavors would be amazing and I knew this is what we were going to make before we even checked out. 

Bacon Jam and Tomato Burgers

Ingredients


  • 4 One-third pound Certified Angus Beef chuck burger patties
  • 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 4 tablespoons bacon jam
  • 8 thin slices tomato
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Leaf lettuce (optional)

Instructions


  1. Set up your grill for direct heat and preheat the grill to 450°f.
  2. Season your burgers.  Mix the salt, pepper and garlic together and sprinkle on the 4 burger patties.
  3. Toast the buns, cut side down, until golden brown.  Remove.
  4. Grill the burger patties 4 minutes and then flip.
  5. Top the patties with a heaping tablespoon of bacon jam and let them cook for 4 minutes. Double check the internal temperature to make sure it's the temperature you want and then remove.  I aim for 145°f if I ground the beef and 160°f if it is commercially prepared.
  6. Top each bun with a bacon jam laced patty, 2 slices tomato, lettuce (if using), and the bun top.

Notes/Substitutions

  • Certified Angus Beef chuck burgers - As noted, we bought the pre-made Schweid and Sons. You could also just buy a Certified Angus Beef chuck roast and grind it yourself to make 1/3rd pound burger patties.
  • Bacon Jam - I used this recipe that Ms Mozzell taught us at the Smithfield Inn, where she has cooked for some 50 years.  You can also just Google "bacon jam" and get plenty of options for recipes or buying a jar.

These are ground from 100% prime Certified Angus Beef chuck.
I made the bacon jam in a cast iron skillet over a 350°f bed of lump charcoal.



Making bacon jam on a Grill Dome kamado grill
The bacon jam recipe that I do has about 17 ingredients so you definitely want your mise en place set up for quick and easy access.  I cooked this batch on one of our kamado style grills so I could hold the temperature steady.

Bacon crisped and sitting on a cooling rack while I cook the onions.

All mixed together and finishing up....

This stuff is amazing. It is soft and spreadable when warm.  The flavors are deep and intense.

Always toast your buns for more taste and texture.

Craycort griddle on a Craycort cast iron grate in a Big Green Egg
We tested these burgers a few different ways.  The first time I cooked them using a Craycort griddle plate on a Big Green Egg.

Cooking burgers on a flat top griddle gives it a nice crust across the surface.

I also grilled a batch of these burgers on a SABER infrared grill.

If the bacon jam is fresh, you can spoon it on near the end.  But if it has been refrigerated, you will want to top the burger with it as soon as you have flipped it.  That will give the heat long enough to warm the bacon jam up, making it more easily spread.

Bacon Jam and Tomato Burger featuring Certified Angus Beef Schweid and Sons
This is an absolutely stunning burger.  The Schweid and Sons patty is juicy and delicious.  The rich bacon jam adds an array of tastes - onion, smoky, spicy, and a hint of bourbon. The acid from the fresh Summer tomatoes bolsters the taste of the beef and balances the richness of the jam.

Well duh.....when you start with the #BestBeef from Certified Angus Beef, you are going to get the very best burger!

Blythe Angus Ranch

I'm quite bummed out today.  

I was scheduled to be leaving this week to go with the Certified Angus Beef influencers to visit the Blythe Angus Ranch near Kansas City to experience life on a cattle ranch.  They are also going to get to practice cowboy cooking with none other than Kent Rollins, whom you have probably seen on TV. I have been looking forward to this trip since February.




Unfortunately, I have some medical issues that require immediate treatment and I am going to miss out on this great opportunity.  But you and I can check out the fun they are having by following the hashtag #RootsInBoots on Instagram and Twitter this weekend.

          SABER Elite SSE 1500   
[FTC Standard Disclaimer] SABER Grills is a sponsor of Nibble Me This; however, any opinions stated herein are my own.

I am excited to be working with SABER Grills this year and was thrilled when they upgraded my SABER Cast 500 with this SABER Elite SSE 1500.  


Before I get into any drawn out review of the SABER grill, the short version is that I love them because they replicate the power and style of the grills that I have gotten to use in commercial kitchens.

Working with grill & smoker manufacturers like I do, I have put together a lot of grills in the past decade and many of them are a real pain to assemble.  The quality of the SABER Elite 1500 was evident as soon as I started putting it together.



Assembly

The SABER Elite 1500 was a piece of cake to assemble.  That's no accident, they engineer it that way.
  • The main part of the grill - the cooking container - is 100% pre-assembled.  You just have to build the base cart, put the cooking container on top, and attach the side pieces.  Easy peasy.
  • The entire assembly only uses two types of connectors - one size/type of bolt and one size/type screw.  Most grills come with blister packs of over a dozen types of connectors that can be confusing when reading the instructions.  With the SABER, it's almost impossible to use the wrong connector.
  • This seems like a small detail but I noticed it - even the bolts and screws are quality. Some grills have cheap bolts/screws made of softer metal and it is easy to strip out a screw head. They sometimes aren't machined just right, so they don't screw in easily.  That was never an issue with the SABER, the bolts and screws seem to be made with harder metals and are precision made.
  • There are touches that aren't necessary but make assembly SO much easier.  For example the side shelves and doors hang in place on their own, so you don't have to try to hold them in place while you try to fasten a screw or bolt.


Features and Benefits

The SABER Elite 1500 is loaded with quality and great features that have real benefits.

The most important feature is the infrared cooking system, which absolutely impresses me every time that I use it. It has the power of a charbroiler in a commercial kitchen but the infrared heat doesn't dry out your food like a convective gas grill does.
Let's have a look "under the hood".  Far left shows the long lasting, powerful burner tube. The center shows the commercial grade stainless infrared emitter. The right side shows the raised, stainless steel grates which channel hot drying air away from your food.

This graphic from SABER's website shows a cutaway view of the system working together.  The robust burner heats up the infrared emitter, cooking your food with potent yet gentle heat. The grates vent the hot air out of the ends.

 There are several benefits from these features.

  • Juicier food - Hot convective air dries the surface of food, infrared heat does not. 
  • More efficient - The system is more efficient so you burn less fuel (propane or natural gas with a conversion kit) than typical convective grills.
  • No flame ups - The infrared emitter also prevents the flames below from touching your food so accidental flame ups won't burn your food.
  • Even temperatures - The emitter plates also even out temperatures so there are no hot spots like you get on some grills.


The SABER grills have the best zone cooking set up I have used.  Each burner tube is in it's own separate compartment so you have better heat control between sections of the grill.  You can cook the left burner on high and the center on medium and they will be two different temps. With most gas grills, all of the burners are just in one big area and their heat affects each other.

The dual tube side burner is a great feature because it gives you a wider range of temperatures and better control of them. 

The controls are intuitive and operate smoothly.

The SABER Elite series grill features lighting for both the cooking area and controls. This is a huge benefit for people who cook all year round.
 
The SABER Elite series also include this rugged, attractive rotisserie. It's not just a typical motor with a stainless steel cover.  I have 2 universal rotisseries and both of them are 4 watt motors. This SABER rotisserie boasts a 15 watt motor, it won't be struggling to turn a fully loaded spit.

The support end is grooved and rests on two spinners, for flawless, smooth rotation.  Cheaper ones usually just have a bushing that rests in a cut out piece of sheet metals. 

The rotisserie even comes with this nice storage case. 

I like that the upper rack can be used in two positions, either low like this or up higher and back. 

No more busting your knuckles or twisting your back trying to get the gas tank out. The SABER features a stainless, slide out shelf for the propane tank.

This storage shelf is great for storing the grill cover, the rotisserie case, supplies, or tools.

The tool for scraping the emitter and another storage area are mounted on the inside of a cabinet door.

Another difference between premium dealer grills and cheaper big box store grills is the quality and thickness of the stainless steel used. The SABER Elite SSE 1500 features heavier gauge, 304 grade stainless steel which is heavier duty and looks better, longer.  An added plus is the mirror finish on the hood and outer areas.

Each burner compartment has it's own temperature gauge.
 
The SABER Elite SSE 1500 also boasts a lot more cooking area, 75 more square inches than a 3 burner Weber that you might buy at Home Depot.

How It Cooks

I already knew that SABER Grills rock from prior experience, so I expected perfection and that's what I got.  I keep saying it - this SABER cooks like a professional charbroiler that I've used in commercial kitchens.

My first "test subject" was a prime ribeye steak seasoned with my friend's espresso rub recipe.

The stainless steel grates also create stunning grill marks.  A lot of us grillers use an aftermarket set of grill grates to get marks like this but the SABER Grills don't need them.

Perfect!

Alexis and I grilled some prime beef burgers.  See how the surface of the burger isn't dried out?

Bacon Jam & Tomato Burger - one of my all time favorite burgers.

But my favorite cook on the SABER Grills Elite SSE 1500 was one where I didn't cook a thing. My youngest son came home late from football activities and grilled himself a ribeye steak.  While he grilled it, he talked about he was grilling more now because after next year, he will be away at college and needs to be able to cook for himself and roommates. It was a pretty cool father-son moment the week before Father's Day.

Trevor loves the SABER Elite SSE 1500, saying it is "legit".  I have 7 grills on my deck and the SABER is clearly his weapon of choice.  He's used it 3 times in the first week I put it together and he already hinted that this is the one he'll want to take with him in college.



tl;dr The SABRE Grills Elite SSE 1500 is a quality, luxury grill that performs as good or better than professional grills in a commercial kitchen.

SABER Grills are available through their dealer network.  In Knoxville, The Great Backyard Place and Prism Pools are both SABER Grills dealers.

          Memorial Day Grilling Ideas - Ribeye Steak with Garlic Chile Compound Butter   
This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Char-Broil; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.


May is one of my favorite months for grilling. First, it is the National BBQ Month.  Second, it kicks off the "grilling season" for those folks that don't grill all year long.  Third, it has the second busiest grilling holiday of the year - Memorial Day.  Yep, May is the month when everyone embraces the outdoor lifestyle, cooking and entertaining in backyards across the country and I love that.

Char-Broil® just made outdoor entertaining a little easier for me by upgrading my Commercial TRU Infrared™ 3 burner grill with a 4 burner Commercial TRU Infrared™.  That's extra grilling real estate!

#nowyourecookin Char-Broil's Commercial TRU Infrared 4 burner gas grill makes Memorial Day feasts easy https://www.charbroil.com/products/gas-grills/commercial-series/commercial-4-burner-gas-grill
Char-Broil Commercial TRU Infrared 4 burner grill

I have said before, the Char-Broil® Commercial grill one of the top 2 gas grills that I have ever used. My newer, bigger Commercial grill has everything I loved about the 3 burner version plus a few extras.

Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill make juicier food because it cooks with infrared instead of hot air.
Parts removed to show the TRU Infrared™ system. Left is the burner with the heat shield moved aside. Middle is the infrared emitter.  Right is the full system of burner/emitter/grates.


The most important feature to me is the TRU Infrared™ system. I never enjoyed using a gas grill until I got the Commercial grill. TRU Infrared™ is the best featured of this grill because of the benefits.
  1. No flare ups - The emitters block the actual flames from touching your food. You could theoretically get enough grease on the emitter to catch fire, but I've never had that happen in 2 years of heavy grilling.  
  2. Up to 50% juicier food - The problem with most gas grills is they use mostly hot air (convective heat) which dries out the surface of meat.  This TRU Infrared™ system converts the burner's heat into infrared heat in a balance similar to real fire.
  3. Even heat - The emitters also balance out the delivery of the heat which minimizes hot spots. Even heat means even cooking and better fire.
  4. More efficient - The system is more efficient and uses less propane or natural gas than standard gas grills.  Remember, BTU is a measure of fuel consumption, not power output.


Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill uses top ported burners for more precise flame control.
About those burners, they are top ported which gives more precise control of the flame over a wide range of temperatures.  Plus they have a 10 year warranty so you don't have to worry about them burning out after just a year or 2.  

#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill produces a better fire for better food
The Commercial comes with a dome mounted thermometer so you aren't having to guess at "medium high heat".

The grill grates are cast iron, which a lot of pros use to get even heat and great grill marks. I buy special aftermarket cast iron grates for my other brands of grills for that reason.  The down side is that cast iron rusts.  If you use and clean your grill regularly, that's not a problem. Again, every brand of cast iron grate that I have will rust if I leave it outside and don't maintain it. 


#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill Surefire technology makes sure your grill is ready to go when you are.
The one touch Surefire electric ignition has not failed on any of my Char-Broil® grills. The batteries have had to be replaced (single AA battery) but the igniter still clicks and fires every time.

#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill comes with a fuel gauge.
You don't have to spend $13-20 for a fuel gauge, the Commercial comes with one attached to the regulator.  This is also a dual fuel unit so you can follow the manufacturer's instructions to convert it to natural gas and connect directly to your home's supply - no more empty grill tanks!

#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill and Kamander kamado grill are my two favorites from their product lines.
The Commercial grill comes with plenty of shelf space, which makes it easier to have everything you need within reach. 

The 4 burner Commercial comes standard with a griddle plate attachment for the side burner and I absolutely love this.  It's great for toasting tortillas, frying bacon, caramelizing onions, or heck, even making pancakes.


The Char-Broil® Commercial grill is an excellent grill for the weekend warrior and it has all of the features you need to take the stress out of grilling for company and let's you focus on entertaining your guests. 

So for a no fuss, easy grill, let's make a no fuss, easy steak! Start with quality steaks, something USDA Choice or better, salt, pepper, and a simple butter topping that will impress your guests this Memorial Day.

#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill easy Memorial day rib eye steak recipe

#NowYoureCookin Char-Broil TRU Infrared Commercial Grill dual fuel grill
A lot of people roll the butter back into a log shape and refrigerate it.  I prefer to make it and keep it warm (assuming that you'll serve it within the hour) because it melts more easily.  Another trick is to smear it on the plate under the steak to deliver a little more WOW! factor.

Of course, you can never go wrong with the All American hot dogs and burgers!

If you want to start grilling but get intimidated by some of the more complex recipes and techniques that I do, I'm going to start adding in some more simple recipes. While a lot of my readers are advanced grill masters, about half of my new readers are more casual grillers looking for help.  Let me know what things you would like to make but are a bit nervous about.  

If you are intimidated by grilling itself, consider the Char-Broil Commercial.  It engineers out many of the pitfalls of grilling. It is honestly one of the first grills that I recommend to people that tell me they are going out to the big box stores this weekend to buy a new grill. 

          BBQ Event Coverage: Ooltewah BBQ Brawl 2017 - World Food Championship Qualifier   
We had a great time at the Ooltewah BBQ Brawl last weekend. The weather was gorgeous, the aroma of 20 grills cooking filled the valley, and the crowds came out to experience it all.  What a fun food festival! 

Ooltewah BBQ Brawl 2017 World Food Championship Qualifier In Tennessee

This was a fun local food festival with a welcoming "home town" vibe, but it has implications much bigger than that.  As a qualifying round for the World Food Championships, this was like an opening round of the NCAA basketball tournament.  For the two winners, this event is the first step toward winning the lion's share of a $300,000 purse.  "All they have to do" is win 3 more times at the World Food Championships in Orange Beach, AL this November.
  • Opening Rounds - Place in the Top 10 for your category (1 of 9) for the Signature Dish and Structured Recipe entries.
  • Infursed Round - Create a winning dish based on the category's special ingredient (of course, topping the other Top 10 competitors from your category).
  • Final Table - the 9 category winners go head to head in a gloves off, no holds barred food fight with the winner taking home a world title and $110,000
Let's check out the fun!

Choo Choo BBQ from Chattanooga/Red Bank competing at a World Food Championship qualifying round in Ooltewah TN
Just like the World Food Championships in Orange Beach, the competitors were a blend of local restaurants, amateur "back yard" teams, and professional competition teams.

Owls Nest BBQ set up at the Ooltewah BBQ Brawl
Owls Nest BBQ, a local professional competition team, set up and starting to cook.  They have a gravity feed cooker (right) and a Pit Barrel Cooker, set up for using a blower/controller (black drum on the left).  I really like the idea of a blower on a PBC. These are set it and forget type cookers meant for people new to BBQ and there aren't any settings other than the pre-set air fit at the bottom.  Doing this gives you full temperature control of the PBC and expands the possibilities. 

When one competitor sees something another competitor does and copies it - that's called "shigging".  As in "Chris saw Stevie Ray's Pit Barrel Cooker using a blower and he fully plans on shigging this idea when he gets back home."

Cute little pig faced offset BBQ pit, maybe a Lang 48? 


Full Throttle BBQ was there competing on a small residential style offset pit.  This is similar to the Brinkmann Smoke n Pit Professional that I first started on.  I think it's cool to see teams using backyard equipment going up against the big dogs with their $5,000+ pits.

Judging at a World Food Championship qualifying event is exciting and fun.
One thing I like about the World Food Championships judging is that food is served to judges immediately as it is turned in, so there's less waiting around which lets the food get cool.  As you can see from the clock, the teams still had almost 3 more minutes to get their food in at this point.  In KCBS, samples are sent to tables in batches of 6 so if yours is the first sample turned in, it's going to wait until 5 more sample boxes are turned in for judging and they all go to the same table.

So the cool thing about the BBQ portion of this contest is that it does not require you to turn in specific meats and they are turned in plated on platters.  KCBS requires you to turn in chicken, ribs, pork and brisket 30 minutes apart and in white Styrofoam clam-shell boxes.  You just turn in ONE BBQ dish and it can be anything BBQ related.  This rewards creativity and risk taking.  It also let's you call your shot.  On the other hand, the KCBS method does a better job of testing a pitmaster's skills.  So neither style is better or worse, just something different that is nice for a change.

John and Alexis both got to judge this Korean style BBQ.  It looked a little wild to me but they both mentioned it as one of their favorites of the round they judged.

Owls Nest BBQ's brisket, burnt end, award winning sauce, and smoked gouda cheese.  I heard this was very good, even better when you eat the brisket with the gouda.

Turn in with spare ribs and smoked bologna.  Yes, smoked bologna is a thing here in the South, an impressive delicious thing.

This team turned in spare ribs and what looked like a bbq pork quesadilla.  I love that fun twist, you'd NEVER see that in KCBS comps.

I think this one was hickory smoked pork topped with fried onions and an apple slaw.  It looked appealing to me but I didn't get to sample this one either.

Although most of the food judges were having their first experience after the training, they were quite thoroughly using the E.A.T. method to fairly score the dishes.

The Table Captain's show the samples, read the descriptions, distribute the samples, and make sure the rules and processes are followed.

Despite not getting to taste all of the samples, I enjoyed being a Table Captain for the first time.  It's all about new experiences, right?

Mike McCloud enjoying a bite of what turned out to be the winning dish....

This is the Deep South Smokers entry.  Just wow. All they had to do was turn in one thing but they had the confidence in their product and the results showed it.  This plate is a pork money muscle, pulled pork, burnt ends, sliced brisket, and a spare rib.  What a presentation.  They won first place in both People's Choice and Judge's categories.
Here are the results of this fun and flavorful food fest. Remember, the winners of the BBQ and Steak cook offs BOTH get a Golden Ticket entry to the 2017 World Food Championships.

          Lee launches new set of high-end ProGlass IRND filters for stills shooters   

Two years in the making, Lee Filters has just announced that it is bringing its highly-regarded ProGlass IRND cinematography filters to the world of stills photography. The company calls these 'a new standard' in ND filters, claiming they are, "remarkably neutral, with almost no color shift and extremely accurate stop values."

The high-end filters will be available through the Seven5, 100mm and SW150 systems, and since they block both IR and UV pollution, they should deliver cleaner colors that require far less work in post-production.

This example, available in interactive form on the Lee website, comes from an unedited RAW file:

The new line will come in six different strengths: 2-stop, 3-stop, 4-stop, 6-stop, 10-stop, all the way up to an impressive 15-stop filter. And the 6, 10, and 15-stop models each feature additional foam light insulation to ensure there are no light leaks, no matter how long the exposure.

Shot with a 0.6ND medium grad Shot with a 0.6ND medium grad and the 4.5ND (15-stop) ProGlass IRND

For more information, and to watch a demo video, visit the Lee Filters website. The ProGlass IRND Filter systems are available to stills shooters today in Seven5, 100mm and SW150 versions for £132.00 ($172 USD), £150.00 ($195 USD), and £346.00 ($450 USD), respectively.

Press Release


ProGlass IRND Filters


Two years in the making, the ProGlass IRND range from LEE Filters sets a new standard in neutral-density filters.

ProGlass IRND filters were originally designed for the film industry, to meet the exacting needs of the world’s leading cinematographers, and have already been hailed as the best neutral-density filters on the market. Now, they are available to the stills photographer, in sizes to fit the LEE Filters Seven5, 100mm and SW150 systems.

Advances in coating technology mean that the filters, which are manufactured from 2mm-thick, optically flat glass, are available not only in strengths of two (0.6ND), three (0.9ND), four (1.2ND) and six (1.8ND) stops, but also in ultra-long 10 (3ND) and 15-stop (4.5ND) versions. Not only this, but all filters in the range – whatever their strength – are designed to be free of colour casts, with extremely accurate stop values, ensuring consistency in all shooting conditions and allowing for absolute precision when exposing images. Their neutrality also means less time spent tweaking colour balances in postproduction.

In addition, filters in the ProGlass IRND range are designed to block both infrared and ultraviolet pollution. As a result, blacks are rendered truly black, whites are clean, and results reveal a crispness that is second to none.


The 6, 10 and 15-stop versions of the ProGlass IRND filters come with a foam seal to prevent light leaks during long exposures, and should be placed into the filter slot closest to the lens. While the 2, 3, 4 and 6-stop versions do not feature a foam seal, it is still recommended also to place them into the slot closest to the lens.

All filters in the ProGlass IRND range can be used in conjunction with other filters, including neutral-density grads and the polariser.

Pricing
ProGlass IRND Filter (Seven5 System) – £132.00 each (Excl VAT)
ProGlass IRND Filter (100mm System) – £150.00 each (Excl VAT)
ProGlass IRND Filter (SW150 System) – £346.00 each (Excl VAT)

          Elliptical Galaxy 4C 73.08   
Elliptical Galaxy 4C 73.08

Luminous galaxies glow like fireflies on a dark night in this image snapped by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The central galaxy in this image is a gigantic elliptical galaxy designated 4C 73.08. A prominent spiral galaxy seen from "above" shines in the lower part of the image, while examples of galaxies viewed edge-on also populate the cosmic landscape.

In the optical and near-infrared light captured to make this image, 4C 73.08 does not appear all that beastly. But when viewed in longer wavelengths the galaxy takes on a very different appearance. Dust-piercing radio waves reveal plumes emanating from the core, where a supermassive black hole spews out twin jets of material. 4C 73.08 is classified as a radio galaxy as a result of this characteristic activity in the radio part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Astronomers must study objects such as 4C 73.08 in multiple wavelengths in order to learn their true natures, just as seeing a firefly’s glow would tell a scientist only so much about the insect. Observing 4C 73.08 in visible light with Hubble illuminates galactic structure as well as the ages of constituent stars, and therefore the age of the galaxy itself. 4C 73.08 is decidedly redder than the prominent, bluer spiral galaxy in this image. The elliptical galaxy’s redness comes from the presence of many older, crimson stars, which shows that 4C 73.08 is older than its spiral neighbour.

The image was taken using Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 through two filters: one which captures green light, and one which captures red and near-infrared light.

IRAS 21078+5211

This image shows an outflow of gas from a new star as it jets from a space object dubbed IRAS 21078+5211, among other designations. The reddish blob in its center, as picked up by Spitzer's 4.5 micron infrared band, contrasts nicely with the green PAHs that surround it. These telltale outflow features of young, hulking stars show up well even without the longer wavelengths available to the original GLIMPSE survey that ran during the "cold" segment of Spitzer's mission. These so-called shocked outflows ram into the hydrogen gas around them and make it glow - a bright beacon in the lonely outskirts of the Milky Way.

This image is a combination of data from Spitzer and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). The Spitzer data was taken after Spitzer's liquid coolant ran dry in May 2009, marking the beginning of its "warm" mission. Light from Spitzer's remaining infrared channels at 3.6 and 4.5 microns has been represented in green and red, respectively. 2MASS 2.2 micron light is blue.

          Supernova Remnant G299.2-2.9   
Supernova Remnant G299.2-2.9

  • G299.2-2.9 is a supernova remnant found about 16,000 light years from Earth in the Milky Way galaxy.
  • It is the remains of a Type Ia supernova, the class of explosions astronomers use to measure the accelerating Universe and dark energy.
  • High-mass stars are those that contain 8 times the Sun's mass or more.
  • Because it is older than most Type Ia remnants astronomers have found, G299.2-2.9 gives a look at how the remnants evolve over time.

G299.2-2.9 is an intriguing supernova remnant found about 16,000 light years away in the Milky Way galaxy . Evidence points to G299.2-2.9 being the remains of a Type Ia supernova, where a white dwarf has grown sufficiently massive to cause a thermonuclear explosion. Because it is older than most supernova remnants caused by these explosions, at an age of about 4500 years, G299.2-2.9 provides astronomers with an excellent opportunity to study how these objects evolve over time. It also provides a probe of the Type Ia supernova explosion that produced this structure.

This composite image shows G299.2-2.9 in X-ray light from Chandra, along with data from the ROSAT satellite (orange), that has been overlaid on an infrared image from the Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS). The faint X-ray emission from the inner region reveals relatively large amounts of iron and silicon, as expected for a remnant of a Type Ia supernova. The outer shell of the remnant is complex, with at least a double shell structure. Typically, such a complex outer shell is associated with a star that has exploded into space where gas and dust are not uniformly distributed.

Since most theories to explain Type Ia supernovas assume they go off in a uniform environment, detailed studies of this complicated outer shell should help astronomers improve their understanding of the environments where these explosions occur. It is very important to understand the details of Type Ia explosions because astronomers use them as cosmic mile markers to measure the accelerated expansion of the universe and study dark energy. The discovery of this accelerated expansion in the late 1990s led to the recent award of the Nobel Prize in Physics.

          Betelgeuse   
Betelgeuse

This orange blob shows the nearby star Betelgeuse, as seen by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). This is the first time that ALMA has ever observed the surface of a star and this first attempt has resulted in the highest-resolution image of Betelgeuse available.

Betelgeuse is one of the largest stars currently known — with a radius around 1400 times larger than the Sun’s in the millimeter continuum. About 600 light-years away in the constellation of Orion (The Hunter), the red supergiant burns brightly, causing it to have only a short life expectancy. The star is just about eight million years old, but is already on the verge of becoming a supernova. When that happens, the resulting explosion will be visible from Earth, even in broad daylight.

The star has been observed in many other wavelengths, particularly in the visible, infrared, and ultraviolet. Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope astronomers discovered a vast plume of gas almost as large as our Solar System. Astronomers have also found a gigantic bubble that boils away on Betelgeuse’s surface. These features help to explain how the star is shedding gas and dust at tremendous rates. In this picture, ALMA observes the hot gas of the lower chromosphere of Betelgeuse at sub-millimeter wavelengths — where localised increased temperatures explain why it is not symmetric. Scientifically, ALMA can help us to understand the extended atmospheres of these hot, blazing stars.

          Colliding Galaxies Arp 299   
Colliding Galaxies Arp 299

  • Arp 299 is a system where two galaxies are in the process of merging.
  • Chandra data has revealed 25 bright point-like X-ray sources in Arp 299, 14 of which are categorized as "ULXs".
  • These ULXs are likely binary systems where a black hole or neutron star is pulling material from a companion star.
  • Such a high concentration of ULXs is rare, but caused by a high rate of star formation triggered by the galactic merger.

What would happen if you took two galaxies and mixed them together over millions of years? A new image including data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory reveals the cosmic culinary outcome.

Arp 299 is a system located about 140 million light years from Earth. It contains two galaxies that are merging, creating a partially blended mix of stars from each galaxy in the process.

However, this stellar mix is not the only ingredient. New data from Chandra reveals 25 bright X-ray sources sprinkled throughout the Arp 299 concoction. Fourteen of these sources are such strong emitters of X-rays that astronomers categorize them as "ultra-luminous X-ray sources," or ULXs.

These ULXs are found embedded in regions where stars are currently forming at a rapid rate. Most likely, the ULXs are binary systems where a neutron star or black hole is pulling matter away from a companion star that is much more massive than the Sun. These double star systems are called high-mass X-ray binaries.

Such a loaded buffet of high-mass X-ray binaries is rare, but Arp 299 is one of the most powerful star-forming galaxies in the nearby Universe. This is due at least in part to the merger of the two galaxies, which has triggered waves of star formation. The formation of high-mass X-ray binaries is a natural consequence of such blossoming star birth as some of the young massive stars, which often form in pairs, evolve into these systems.

This new composite image of Arp 299 contains X-ray data from Chandra (pink), higher-energy X-ray data from NuSTAR (purple), and optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope (white and faint brown). Arp 299 also emits copious amounts of infrared light that has been detected by observatories such as NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, but those data are not included in this composite.

The infrared and X-ray emission of the galaxy is remarkably similar to that of galaxies found in the very distant Universe, offering an opportunity to study a relatively nearby analog of these distant objects. A higher rate of galaxy collisions occurred when the universe was young, but these objects are difficult to study directly because they are located at colossal distances.

The Chandra data also reveal diffuse X-ray emission from hot gas distributed throughout Arp 299. Scientists think the high rate of supernovas, another common trait of star-forming galaxies, has expelled much of this hot gas out of the center of the system.

          Star GL 490   
Star GL 490

Two extremely bright stars illuminate a greenish mist in this and other images from the new GLIMPSE360 survey. This fog is comprised of hydrogen and carbon compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are found right here on Earth in sooty vehicle exhaust and on charred grills. In space, PAHs form in the dark clouds that give rise to stars. These molecules provide astronomers a way to visualize the peripheries of gas clouds and study their structures in great detail. PAHs are not actually "green;" a representative color coding in these images lets scientists observe PAHs glow in the infrared light that Spitzer sees, and which is invisible to us.

Strange streaks - likely dust grains that lined up with magnetic fields - distort the star in the top left. The fairly close, well-studied star GL 490 gleams in the middle right. The new GLIMPSE360 observations have revealed several small blobby outflows of gas from nearby forming stars, which indicate their youth. Such outflows are a great way to target really young, massive stars in their very earliest, hard-to-catch stages.

This image is a combination of data from Spitzer and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS).

          Online Reweighted Least Squares Algorithm for Sparse Recovery and Application to Short-Wave Infrared Imaging. (arXiv:1706.09585v1 [cs.LG])   

Authors: Subhadip Mukherjee, Deepak R., Huaijin Chen, Ashok Veeraraghavan, Chandra Sekhar Seelamantula

We address the problem of sparse recovery in an online setting, where random linear measurements of a sparse signal are revealed sequentially and the objective is to recover the underlying signal. We propose a reweighted least squares (RLS) algorithm to solve the problem of online sparse reconstruction, wherein a system of linear equations is solved using conjugate gradient with the arrival of every new measurement. The proposed online algorithm is useful in a setting where one seeks to design a progressive decoding strategy to reconstruct a sparse signal from linear measurements so that one does not have to wait until all measurements are acquired. Moreover, the proposed algorithm is also useful in applications where it is infeasible to process all the measurements using a batch algorithm, owing to computational and storage constraints. It is not needed a priori to collect a fixed number of measurements; rather one can keep collecting measurements until the quality of reconstruction is satisfactory and stop taking further measurements once the reconstruction is sufficiently accurate. We provide a proof-of-concept by comparing the performance of our algorithm with the RLS-based batch reconstruction strategy, known as iteratively reweighted least squares (IRLS), on natural images. Experiments on a recently proposed focal plane array-based imaging setup show up to 1 dB improvement in output peak signal-to-noise ratio as compared with the total variation-based reconstruction.


          Simultaneous Lightwave Information and Power Transfer (SLIPT) for Indoor IoT Applications. (arXiv:1706.09624v1 [cs.IT])   

Authors: Panagiotis D. Diamantoulakis, George K. Karagiannidis

We present the concept of Simultaneous Lightwave Information and Power Transfer (SLIPT) for indoor Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Specifically, we propose novel and fundamental SLIPT strategies, which can be implemented through Visible Light or Infrared communication systems, equipped with a simple solar panel-based receiver. These strategies are performed at the transmitter or at the receiver, or at both sides, named Adjusting transmission, Adjusting reception and Coordinated adjustment of transmission and reception, correspondingly. Furthermore, we deal with the fundamental trade-off between harvested energy and quality-of-service (QoS), by maximizing the harvested energy, while achieving the required user's QoS. To this end, two optimization problems are formulated and optimally solved. Computer simulations validate the optimum solutions and reveal that the proposed strategies considerably increase the harvested energy, compared to SLIPT with fixed policies.

              Applications that stand apart in Windows Media Center   

    Windows Media Center gained exposure and popularity after being included in the Home Premium and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista. Now, Microsoft is providing WMC with the Windows 7 Business and Windows 7 Enterprise editions with several new and improved features.

    And in the latest version, one can avail goodies like TV show images throughout the guide and Recorded TV; Media Center desktop gadget; trick play functions like fast forward, rewind, and skip; streamlined schedule of recordings; guide button in Window mode; use of movie library without any registry hack and support for more file types; and resumption of various video types except dvr-ms and wtv.

    More features and applications that make the Windows 7 Media Center so entertaining are as follows.

    With the new WMC one can avail the option of scheduling TV recordings with any browser. With the help of a TV tuner installed, Windows Media Center or Home Server makes for a decent hardcore DVR device, without the monthly fees. Make it simplified to catch good TV when one thinks of it at work with Web Guide, a cost-free scheduling program which shows you what's there in the future, streams what's available now, or else delivers your media center's TV usage to wherever you happen to be at anytime, anywhere.

    There are also Windows 7 Media Center remotes available for phones. It would be better to go the easy route and buy an infrared-based, media-center-friendly physical remote for TV-attached setup, however if you'd prefer a bit more functionality—and, more importantly, real typing input—there's is a free or cheap remote for Wi-Fi powered phone or iPod. Gmote an Android phone into a multi-system remote, taking into view that you don't mind a quick software installation. iPod/iPhone owners have their choice from many XBMC-compatible remotes in the App Store, the free Boxee remote, and MediaMote correctly handles your Windows Media Center remote.

    The router can also be made more media-friendly. The router treats all net traffic the same, can't tell exactly how much one has downloaded in a month, and is fairly difficult to turn into anything other than an agent of a cable modem. Install DD-WRT or Tomato on a little antenna box and it can be a wireless bridge for your entertainment center, as well make sure that Hulu and Netflix get all the bandwidth that is needed with quality of service rules.

    One can also easily convert and transfer tracks to a portable player with the Windows Media Center. The finest media centers can play just about any video or audio format that is available, but even the coolest phones and media devices have a limited format range, with just as little storage space. Among the five best media converters that was surveyed upon, Super and Format Factory can match most devices and file types, but MediaCoder and HandBrake get the job done on any platform.The doubleTwist media manager is the best in getting the file on a phone or a device. It is also the easiest drag & drop solution that is around.

              REMOTE SENSING OF THE CANADIAN ARCTIC: MODELLING BIOPHYSICAL VARIABLES   
    REMOTE SENSING OF THE CANADIAN ARCTIC: MODELLING BIOPHYSICAL VARIABLES Liu, Nanfeng It is anticipated that Arctic vegetation will respond in a variety of ways to altered temperature and precipitation patterns expected with climate change, including changes in phenology, productivity, biomass, cover and net ecosystem exchange. Remote sensing provides data and data processing methodologies for monitoring and assessing Arctic vegetation over large areas. The goal of this research was to explore the potential of hyperspectral and high spatial resolution multispectral remote sensing data for modelling two important Arctic biophysical variables: Percent Vegetation Cover (PVC) and the fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (fAPAR). A series of field experiments were conducted to collect PVC and fAPAR at three Canadian Arctic sites: (1) Sabine Peninsula, Melville Island, NU; (2) Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory (CBAWO), Melville Island, NU; and (3) Apex River Watershed (ARW), Baffin Island, NU. Linear relationships between biophysical variables and Vegetation Indices (VIs) were examined at different spatial scales using field spectra (for the Sabine Peninsula site) and high spatial resolution satellite data (for the CBAWO and ARW sites). At the Sabine Peninsula site, hyperspectral VIs exhibited a better performance for modelling PVC than multispectral VIs due to their capacity for sampling fine spectral features. The optimal hyperspectral bands were located at important spectral features observed in Arctic vegetation spectra, including leaf pigment absorption in the red wavelengths and at the red-edge, leaf water absorption in the near infrared, and leaf cellulose and lignin absorption in the shortwave infrared. At the CBAWO and ARW sites, field PVC and fAPAR exhibited strong correlations (R2 > 0.70) with the NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) derived from high-resolution WorldView-2 data. Similarly, high spatial resolution satellite-derived fAPAR was correlated to MODIS fAPAR (R2 = 0.68), with a systematic overestimation of 0.08, which was attributed to PAR absorption by soil that could not be excluded from the fAPAR calculation. This research clearly demonstrates that high spectral and spatial resolution remote sensing VIs can be used to successfully model Arctic biophysical variables. The methods and results presented in this research provided a guide for future studies aiming to model other Arctic biophysical variables through remote sensing data.
              My Project!! Two Wheel Balancing Robot!!   
    Hi Guys This is my final exam. Susah sekali untuk bikin Two Wheel Balancing Robot ini. Efek dari pembuatan project ini adalah, gw bisa diet secara alami untuk penurunan berat badan serta pikiran jadi Maknyoss, ho2.
    Anyway, body robot ini aku buat dari bahan Acrylic. Lalu untuk motornya gw pakai 2 buah motor servo tipe HS-225MG buatan Hitec. Motor servo yang gw pakai merupakan motor servo mini tapi bertenaga sama dengan motor servo standar. Untuk sensornya mula2 gw pakai Accelerometer atau dikenal juga dengan sensor percepatan. Kemudian karena tidak bisa digunakan dengan baik sebagai pengukur kemiringan maka sensor saya ganti dengan sensor Inframerah pengukur jarak (infrared range finder) buatan SHARP tipe GP2D12.
    Untuk prosesornya gw pakai Mikrokontroler buatan AVR tipe ATMEGA16L dengan clock sebesar 8MHz.Kontroler yang digunakan adalah kontroler PID dengan beberapa tambahan fungsi.
    Agar robot dapat berdiri seimbang, tidak semudah yang dibayangkan. Kemampuan robot untuk berdiri seimbang kurang lebih hanya 10 detik saja.

              Formulation and characterization of EGCG for the treatment of superficial bladder cancer.   
    PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2017 Jun 14. Epub 2017 Jun 14. PMID: 28627636 Abstract Title:  Formulation and characterization of EGCG for the treatment of superficial bladder cancer. Abstract:  In the United States, the annual incidence of bladder cancer is approximately 70,000 new cases, with a mortality rate of approximately 15,000/year. The most common subtype (70%) of bladder cancer is superficial, namely hte non-muscle invasive disease form limited to the urothelium. The rate of progression and recurrence is up to 40 and 70%, respectively. Urothelial cellcarcinoma of the bladder is typically treated with transurethral resection. The cancerous cells can float onto the adjacent epithelium, increasing the risk of recurrence. The standard of care is to offer adjuvant intravesical agents to reduce the risk of progression and recurrence. Current intravesical treatments are costly and are associated with special biohazard handling protocols. Patients are treated with intravesical therapy with bacillus Calmetter‑Guerin (BCG) bacterium, or mitomycin C (MMC) following resection, both of which can cause moderate to severe side-effects which are rarely life-threatening. We previously examined the efficacy of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) in comparison with MMC to prevent tumor cell implantation/growth in an animal model of superficial bladder cancer. Experiments revile that EGCG is slightly more effective than MMC at decreasing tumor cellimplantation and consequent cancer growth in a bladder. This treatment requires the stringent sterile requirement of EGCG. EGCG can be unstable when sterilized at high temperatures. Thus, we evaluated two low temperature sterilization methods, such as ionizing radiation or the filtration method followed by freeze-drying. Both methods ensure the sterility of the sample; however, infrared and HPLC analysis revealed a slightly better stability of irradiated EGCG over the filtration method. The concentration of stable free radicals following irradiation was low, which are unlikely to exert any damaging effects to EGCG. Therefore, we consider that radiation will be the preferred method of EGCG sterilization, and that this may prove useful for the effective use of EGCG in the treatment of bladder cancer.

              On the Use of a Water Balance to Evaluate Inter-annual Terrestrial ET Variability   
    Accurately measuring interannual variability in terrestrial evapotranspiration ET is a major challenge for efforts to detect trends in the terrestrial hydrologic cycle. Based on comparisons with annual values of terrestrial evapotranspiration derived from a terrestrial water balance analysis, past research has cast doubt on the ability of existing products to accurately capture variability. Using a variety of estimates, this analysis reexamines this conclusion and finds that estimates of variations obtained from a land surface model are more strongly correlated with independently acquired from thermal infrared remote sensing than derived from water balance considerations. This tendency is attributed to significant interannual variations in terrestrial water storage neglected by the water balance approach. Overall, results demonstrate the need to reassess perceptions concerning the skill of estimates derived from land surface models and show the value of accurate remotely sensed ET products for the validation of interannual ET.

              IR receiver not working on NUC7i3BNK after startup   

    I have two NUC7i3BNK that both have the same issue of the ITECIR Infrared Receiver not being detected after startup. It seems to only happen when the units are started by turning on their HDMI monitor or by pressing the power button on a RC6 IR remote. If I press the power button on the unit to turn it on or select restart in windows the ITECIR Infrared Receiver shows up in device manager and a IR remote works normally. When the IR decides not to work, scanning for new devices in device manager makes no difference and the ITECIR Infrared Receiver does not show up under HID. Both units are running windows 10 and didn't have the issue when initially installed.


              Adding to Kaos: US 'continues to arm' PKK/PYD group in Syria   
    A total of 120 trucks allegedly carrying military equipment for PKK/PYD terror group were seen passing through Iraqi border and later arrived in northern Syrian province of Al-Hasakah between June 21 and Monday, sources in the region told Anadolu Agency.


    Al-Hasakah is an area said to be under control of the terrorist PKK/PYD group.

    Since June 15 when the U.S. President Donald Trump ratified the policy of arming PKK/PYD terrorists, at least 468 trucks have been sent to the region; 12 trucks were seen on June 5 and 20 trucks delivered military aids to PKK/PYD.

    According to the Pentagon, the U.S. military aid to several armed groups in Syria, including the PKK/PYD, comprises of 12,000 Kalashnikovs, 6,000 machine guns, 3,500 heavy machine guns, 3,000 RPG-7s, 1,000 American AT-4 or Russian SPG-9 anti-tanks, 235 mortar guns of different calibers, 100 sniper rifles, 450 PV-7 night vision binoculars and 150 binoculars with infrared laser illuminator...

              Apple made a game console back in 1996, and it was terrible   

    Way back in 1996, Apple thought it could make a game console.

    Ten months before Steve Jobs came back to Apple, the company collaborated with Japanese toy and video game company Bandai to make the Pippin game machine. It turned out to be a tremendous flop. Apple sold only 42,000 units between when it released the Pippin in 1996 and when it discontinued the device the next year. 

    Pippin Atmark Console SetBy comparison, when it launched its N64 game console in 1996, Nintendo sold between 350,000 and 500,000 units in just the first three days, according to the Nintendo 64 Wikipedia entry, which cites a 1996 Newsweek article. 

    Check out Apple's Pippin game console:

    The look of Apple's Pippin game console screams 1990s. Launched around the same time period, Sony's original PlayStation and Nintendo's N64 also look dated by today's standards, but their designs have aged better than the Pippin's.

    YouTube/Snazzy Labs

    The Pippin cost $600 when it was launched. By contrast, the original PlayStation cost $300 and the N64 cost $200.

    YouTube/The Obsolete Geek

    The Pippin's controller was called the "Apple Jack," and it had a mouse trackball in the middle.

    YouTube/Snazzy Labs

    You had to use the Apple Jack's trackball in game menus, because games were direct ports from the versions that ran on Apple's Mac computers, and the Mac versions relied on a trackball or mouse for navigation.

    Apple offered a wireless version of the controller, which was advanced for its time. The controller used infrared technology to connect to the console.

    The effects of calorie-matched high-fat diet consumption on spontaneous physical activity and development of obesity.

    Life Sci. 2017 Jun 15;179:30-36

    Authors: Moretto TL, Benfato ID, de Carvalho FP, Barthichoto M, Le Sueur-Maluf L, de Oliveira CAM

    Abstract
    AIMS: To characterize the effects of a calorie matched high-fat diet (HFD) on spontaneous physical activity (SPA), body weight, inflammatory status and expression of genes related to energy homeostasis in hypothalamus of mice.
    MAIN METHODS: C57Bl/6 mice (n=5 per group) were fed a control diet (16.5% calories from fat) - control group (C), or a calorie matched HFD (60% calories from fat). We evaluated, periodically, body weight and SPA by infrared beam sensors and, at the end of the 12th week, we verified blood glucose levels, fat pads weight, plasma insulin, TNF-α and IL-6 by ELISA and the hypothalamic expression of 84 genes related to energy homeostasis, by quantitative real-time PCR array.
    KEY FINDINGS: Isocaloric HFD reduced SPA already in the first 48h and SPA was kept lower in the HFD compared to C throughout. These changes resulted in an increase in body weight, adiposity, TNF-α and IL-6, blood glucose and hyperinsulinemia in the HFD group when compared to the C group. Expression of the Agrp, Bdnf, Adra2b and Pyy genes were altered in the hypothalamus of HFD-fed mice, highlighting the downregulation of Bdnf, key regulator of energy homeostasis.
    SIGNIFICANCE: Dietary macronutrient distribution plays an important part in energy homeostasis that goes beyond its energy content. Despite calorie-matched, the HFD led to increased body weight and adiposity due to decreased SPA, highlighting the key role of SPA on energy balance. The changes in hypothalamic gene expression seem to underlie the reduction in SPA caused by HFD.

    Nerve growth factor-carbon nanotube complex exerts prolonged protective effects in an in vitro model of ischemic stroke.

    Life Sci. 2017 Jun 15;179:15-22

    Authors: Hassanzadeh P, Arbabi E, Atyabi F, Dinarvand R

    Abstract
    AIMS: The therapeutic potential of nerve growth factor (NGF) against the neurological disorders may be negatively affected by its short half-life. Based on the superior properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for controlled drug delivery, we aimed to prepare CNT-NGF complex and evaluate its effect in an in vitro model of ischemic stroke.
    MATERIALS AND METHODS: Multi-walled CNTs (MWCNTs)-NGF complex was prepared using amino-functionalized COOH-MWCNTs and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. PC12 cells in the absence or presence of NGF (0.5, 1, 2μg/ml), acid- or amine-modified MWCNTs, or MWCNTs-NGF complex (2, 4, 8μg/ml) were exposed to 1 and 6h oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) followed by 24h re-oxygenation. Cytotoxicity and oxidative stress were evaluated.
    KEY FINDINGS: OGD significantly reduced the cell viability (P<0.001). NGF dose-dependently increased the cell viability only after 1-h OGD (P<0.05), while, MWCNTs-NGF complex was effective at both 1- and 6-h OGD (P<0.05, P<0.001). NGF reduced the formation of condensed nuclei due to 1-h OGD (P<0.01, P<0.001), while, MWCNTs-NGF showed efficiency at both time points (P<0.05, P<0.01, P<0.001). OGD significantly increased malondialdehyde (MDA) content and decreased catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities (P<0.001). After 1-h OGD, NGF reduced MDA (P<0.001) and increased CAT (P<0.05, P<0.01) and SOD (P<0.01), while, MWCNTs-NGF was effective after both 1- and 6-h OGD (MDA: P<0.01, P<0.001, CAT: P<0.001, SOD: P<0.01, P<0.001).
    SIGNIFICANCE: Aminated MWCNTs-NGF complex by providing longer lasting effects for NGF might be of therapeutic significance against the disorders associated with NGF deficiency.

    Application of carbon nanotubes as the carriers of the cannabinoid, 2-arachidonoylglycerol: Towards a novel treatment strategy in colitis.

    Life Sci. 2017 Jun 15;179:66-72

    Authors: Hassanzadeh P, Arbabi E, Atyabi F, Dinarvand R

    Abstract
    AIMS: Treatment of colitis has remained a major clinical challenge. The cannabinoid, 2-arachidonoyglycerol (2-AG), has shown beneficial effects in colitis, however, poor solubility or rapid hydrolysis may limit its efficiency. According to the high biocompatibility of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and their ability for controlled drug delivery, we aimed to prepare multi-walled CNTs-2-AG (MWCNTs-2-AG) complex in order to improve the pharmacological profile of 2-AG and evaluate the therapeutic potential of this nanocomplex in a rat model of colitis.
    MATERIALS AND METHODS: Aminated MWCNTs-2-AG complex was prepared using acidified MWCNTs and then characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. In vitro cytotoxicity of MWCNTs was evaluated. Colitis was induced by colonic instillation of trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) and the effects of 2-AG solution and various types of MWCNTs on the colonic tissue damage, inflammation, and oxidative stress were evaluated.
    KEY FINDINGS: Aminated MWCNTs and MWCNTs-2-AG complex exhibited significantly lower cytotoxicity than acidified MWCNTs. Once daily intrarectal application of MWCNTs-2-AG complex (containing 2mg/kg of 2-AG) 2days before and 8days after the induction of colitis effectively reduced the macroscopic and microscopic injuries, malondialdehyde, tumour necrosis factor-α, and interlukin-1β concentrations, and myeloperoxidase activity. While, free 2-AG (2mg/kg), and acidified or aminated MWCNTs showed no beneficial effects.
    SIGNIFICANCE: Amino-functionalized MWCNTs appear as the suitable carriers for 2-AG which provide a sustained concentration for this cannabinoid leading to the promising therapeutic effects in the experimental colitis.

              Sailing Venus: Riding the wave   
    Which way is up? That's a question I've struggled with a lot lately in relation to Venus. Here's the thing: Sailing Venus is, at its heart, an adventure story, but it's also a hard science fiction story as well. It's not hard SF in the sense that characters have rivets sticking out of their heads and speak in equations, but one where I try to get facts and details as correct as possible. I'm not writing about Venus' dinosaur-infested swamps, after all.

    But you know what? As I get deeper into the story, something started going wonky. Venus is a weird world. It's a terrestrial planet like Earth, almost exactly the same size, but it has almost no water, is hotter than a pizza oven on the surface and its upper atmosphere whips around it in a superrotation that circumnavigates the planet every four Earth days (that's really, really fast). Venus has a day (243 Earth days) that is longer than it's year (225 Earth days), and also has a retrograde rotation, meaning the sun rises in the West and sets in the East. One would think that's pretty cut and dried, but it's not. Some Venus researchers don't view Venus as having a retrograde rotation, instead, consider it as flipped, with its north pole pointing "down" when viewed from the plane of the solar system, and a south pole pointing up. This nomenclature doesn't matter to me one iota, except that some websites and books present maps of Venus with one orientation, and others flip it. Clearly these are different schools of thought on which is the proper way to present Venus "right side up," but the trouble is, in most cases, they don't clearly identify which school of thought they subscribe to. So this is my dilemma--if I erroneously choose a "north is down" map, which has been flipped "right side up" so that Venus rotates in a counter-clockwise direction like all the other planets, the westward-blowing superrotation would be going backwards. Not only would that make me look stupid, it completely alters which locations are accessible to my protagonist--indeed, it profoundly affects the plot and even location of the various outposts on the planet. That's not something I can really fudge--which direction a continuous, 200 mph wind blows. To make matters even worse, several online science sites that claimed to set the record straight on this bit of befuddlement contradicted each other. Yeah, I could've emailed some NASA researchers, but I don't like to bother them unless absolutely necessary. And certainly not with a question as mind-numbingly stupid as this one. Fortunately, I stumbled across this graphic:

    Is that not a thing of beauty? This is data from the Japanese space probe Akatsuki, super-imposed over a flattened map of the planet's entire surface. The colored elements of the image are infrared and ultraviolet renderings of a huge standing wave over the western portion of Aphrodite Terra. Not only does it clearly show the direction of the superrotation, it also specifically locates, geographically speaking, a significant atmospheric phenomenon that I'm going to put to good use in the narrative. So, yay!

    But the hassle with "Which way is up?" got me to more closely examine other numbers floating around in my story. Most books and fact sheets about Venus list the extremes of the planet--highest pressure, fastest wind speed, highest temperature, etc. And it dawned on me that while I was using these numbers in my novel--accurate though they may be--they're not constant across the planet. Each changes with altitude, sometimes significantly. Venus' much-discussed superrotation? The top wind speed is roughly 223 mph around 45 miles up, but a little further down, around 33 miles up, it slows to about 150 mph. That's a big difference. Temperature's another biggie. The surface of Venus is hot enough to melt lead, and 29 miles up, it's still a blistering 197 degrees Fahrenheit. But jump to 35 miles up, and the temperature dips to 46F--enough to start worrying about hypothermia at those wind speeds. That is, were someone to be exposed to those conditions. Which nobody ever would be, certainly not in my book, right? From there I made the leap to realizing terminal velocity would be different on Venus as well. How different? Well, Venus' gravity is very close to that of Earth's, but the atmosphere, made up mostly of CO2, is very different. I thought the atmospheric pressure would have a big impact on terminal velocity, but it turns out that's not true. Pressure has no bearing, but density does. Those are distinct things. Researching density led me to individual gas constants, and from there back to drag coefficients. The irony is that I'm terrible at math, while my main character, Erica, is a whiz. I'm having to make my way very slowly and cautiously through these equations, which she could solve in her head.

    And you know what? Ultimately, none of this will show up in the book. Oh, it'll be there, behind the scenes, informing what goes where and how this does that. But strictly as scaffolding and superstructure. I'm not stopping the narrative to deliver a physics lesson or print out some algebraic equations for readers to solve along at home. That's generally referred to as "I've suffered for my art, and now it's your turn" syndrome. No, I'm suffering for my art so you don't have to. Rest assured, though, that no matter how fantastical Erica's adventure may get, I've made a good-faith effort to ground it in reality.

              Apple made a game console back in 1996, and it was terrible   

    Way back in 1996, Apple thought it could make a game console.

    Ten months before Steve Jobs came back to Apple, the company collaborated with Japanese toy and video game company Bandai to make the Pippin game machine. It turned out to be a tremendous flop. Apple sold only 42,000 units between when it released the Pippin in 1996 and when it discontinued the device the next year. 

    Pippin Atmark Console SetBy comparison, when it launched its N64 game console in 1996, Nintendo sold between 350,000 and 500,000 units in just the first three days, according to the Nintendo 64 Wikipedia entry, which cites a 1996 Newsweek article. 

    Check out Apple's Pippin game console:

    The look of Apple's Pippin game console screams 1990s. Launched around the same time period, Sony's original PlayStation and Nintendo's N64 also look dated by today's standards, but their designs have aged better than the Pippin's.

    YouTube/Snazzy Labs

    The Pippin cost $600 when it was launched. By contrast, the original PlayStation cost $300 and the N64 cost $200.

    YouTube/The Obsolete Geek

    The Pippin's controller was called the "Apple Jack," and it had a mouse trackball in the middle.

    YouTube/Snazzy Labs

    You had to use the Apple Jack's trackball in game menus, because games were direct ports from the versions that ran on Apple's Mac computers, and the Mac versions relied on a trackball or mouse for navigation.

    Apple offered a wireless version of the controller, which was advanced for its time. The controller used infrared technology to connect to the console.

              Alert Notice 500: Novae in Scorpius and Cygnus [V1534 Sco, V2659 Cyg]   

    April 2, 2014

    1. Nova Scorpii 2014 = TCP J17154683-3128303  [V1534 Sco]
    2. Nova Cygni 2014 = PNV J20214234+3103296  [V2659 Cyg]

    1. Nova Scorpii 2014 = TCP J17154683-3128303

    Event: Nova Scorpii 2014 = TCP J17154683-3128303

    Discovered by: Koichi Nishiyama (Kurume, Japan) and Fujio Kabashima (Miyaki, Japan)

    Discovery magnitude: magnitude 10.1 unfiltered CCD, using a 105-mm f/4 camera lens (+SBIG STL6303E camera)

    Discovery date: 2014 Mar. 26.8487 UT

    Coordinates: R.A. 17 15 46.83 Dec. -31 28 30.3 (2000.0)

    Spectra: E. Kuulkers (ESA/ESAC) et al. report that Nova Sco 2014 was detected by the Swift satellite in X-rays on about March 27.17 UT (ATel #6015); the X-ray spectrum is consistent with an expanding shell in a nova. A spectrum obtained on Mar. 27.8 UT by K. Ayani and S. Maeno (Bisei Astronomical Observatory, Ibara Okayama, Japan) indicates that this object is a nova in early phase. Their spectrum is posted at http://www.bao.city.ibara.okayama.jp/astro/2014/nova/TCP_J17154683-3128303_Mar27.png. Optical and near-infrared spectra from several sources indicate a symbiotic nova (ATel #6025, #6032, #6034). Subsequent observations by Swift (K. Page et al., ATel #6035) obtained March 27-April indicate "a shock emerging from a secondary star wind, as expected in a symbiotic nova." See CBET 3841 and ATels for details.

    Observing recommendations: Observations of all types (visual, CCD, DSLR, spectroscopy) are strongly encouraged in following the evolution of this nova. Filtered observations are preferred if possible.

    Charts: Nova Sco 2014 has been added to the International Variable Star Index (VSX, http://www.aavso.org/vsx). Finder charts with a comparison star sequence may be created using the AAVSO Variable Star Plotter (VSP, http://www.aavso.org/vsp).

              Jenis Jenis Layar Sentuh   
    Layar sentuh atau dalam bahasa inggris disebut Touch Screen, Touch Panel atau Touch Sscreen Panel adalah sebuah perangkat input computer yang bekerja dengan adanya sentuhan tampilan layar menggunakan jari atau pena digital. Terdapat enam jenis layar sentuh, yaitu Resistive overlay, capactive overlay, Guide Accoustic wave, Scanning infrared, Near Field Imaging, dan Surface Accoustic Wave System.
    Capacitive overlay
    Di setiap sudut layar terdapat sirkuit yang berfungsi untuk mengukur kapasitansi. Sentuhan yang diberikan oleh jari atau alat penghantar lainnya yang merupakan konduktor pada layar menyebabkan gangguan pada kondisi elektrostatis. Gangguan tersebut menyebabkan perubahan kapasitansi. Perubahan yang terjadi terukur oleh sirkuit dan kemudian dipergunakan untuk mendeteksi lokasi sentuhan. Tipe ini memiliki daya tahan yang kuat serta tampilan yang jernih. Contoh produk yang menggunakan layar jenis ini adalah Samsung Corby TouchScreen, iPhone.
    Guided acoustic wave
    Alat ini bekerja dengan mentransmisikan gelombang akustik melalui lapisan atas kaca yang ditempatkan diatas layar tampilan. Ketika suatu alat yang memiliki daya penghantar seperti jari terkontak dengan gelombang, maka transmisi gelombang akustik terganggu oleh jari. Gangguan menyebabkan pengurangan amplitudo dimana pengurangan tersebut diidentifikasi oleh control electronics untuk mendeteksi lokasi sentuhan.
    Resistive overlay
    Unggul dalam daya tahan khususnya terhadap perlakuan kasar dan harga yang terjangkau. Tersusun atas dua lapisan tipis yang terbuat dari kaca atau polyester yang diselubungi dengan material penghambat dan dipisahkan oleh titik-titik pemisah yang tidak terlihat. Pada resistive overlay, arus listrik mengalir pada seluruh bagian layar. Ketika tekanan diberikan pada layar, kedua lapisan tersebut saling berhimpitan yang kemudian menyebabkan perubahan aliran arus listrik. Melalui perubahan tersebut lokasi sentuhan terdeteksi. Contoh produk yang menggunakan layar jenis ini adalah Samsung Star dan Sony Ericsson W950
    Scanning infrared
    Dalam bingkai sentuhan atau layar terdapat jajaran diode cahaya dan transistor foto yang masing-masing diletakan di dua sisi yang berlawanan untuk menghasilkan sebuah kisi dari cahaya infra merahyang tidak terlihat. Ketika jari atau alat penghantar lainnya memasuki kisi tersebut, cahaya infra merah yang dipancarkan diode cahaya terhalangi. Foto transistor mendeteksi hilangnya cahaya dan mentransmisikan sinyal yang mengidentifikasi koordinat x dan y dari letak jari atau alat penghantar tersebut.
    Near field imaging (NFI)
    Tipe ini menggunakan alat atau sirkuit pendeteksi sentuhan yang canggih untuk mendeteksi sentuhan. Alat atau sirkuit tersebut memiliki tingkat ketepatan tinggi dalam menggunakan data dan memproses gambar untuk menghasilkan profil yang tepat atas sentuhan yang diberikan.
    Surface acoustic wave
    Bekerja dengan mengirimkan gelombang akustik melalui panel kaca yang dilengkapi dengan beberapa transduser dan reflektor. Ketika jari bersentuhan dengan gelombang akustik, gerakan gelombangmengalami perubahan. Perubahan ini kemudian digunakan untuk mendeteksi lokasi sentuhan. Keunggulan tipe ini adalah memiliki tingkat kejernihan yang paling tinggi serta daya tahan yang baik. Namun, sensitif terhadap kotoran yang menempel.
              Oceans and Seas Temperature   
    Live Map Oceans and Seas Surface Temperature
    (Map Shows Temperatures in Real Time)


    The temperature of the surface of the ocean is commonly referred to as sea surface temperature. Sea surface temperature is now recognized as one of the most important variables related to the global ocean atmosphere system. It is a key indicator for climate change, is widely applied to studies of upper ocean processes and air-sea heat exchange, and is used as a boundary condition for numerical weather prediction (NWP). Changes in sea surface temperature, such as the large changes in ocean temperatures during El Nintildeo / La Nintildea events, can have dramatic impacts on fisheries by forcing fish into regions where they are not commonly found. Additionally, coral-bleaching due to warm ocean temperatures can result in reduced fish habitat and fish species diversity. Changes in sea surface temperatures impact our weather and are therefore an important measurement for accurate weather forecasting of both daily weather and severe events, such as hurricanes. Like Earth's land surface, sea surface temperatures are warmer near the equator and colder near the poles. Wind driven ocean currents move warm and cold water around the world's oceans like giant rivers. Surface currents can be seen in sea surface temperature images from satellites.


    Traditionally, SST has been measured using infrared radiometers called AVHRRs and more recently MODIS. Recently, special microwave technology allows the AMSR-E sensor on NASA's Aqua satellite to measure sea surface temperatures through clouds, something no satellite sensor before it was able to do across the whole globe. An anomaly is when something is different from normal, or average. A sea surface temperature anomaly is how different the ocean temperature at a particular location at a particular time is from the normal temperatures for that place. For example, a global map of sea surface temperature anomaly for May 2006 would show where the temperatures in May 2006 were warmer, cooler, or the same as other Mays in previous years. Sea surface temperature anomalies can happen as part of normal ocean cycles or they can be a sign of long-term climate change, such as global warming.

              Water Usage & The Sink   
    Have you ever stopped to think about what happens to all the clean water that goes down your drain when you wash your hands or brush your teeth? It unfortunately (and unnecessarily) ends up mixing with raw sewage and becomes contaminated. This newly contaminated liquid/sludge then makes its way to either a waste treatment plant or septic tank. We often forget that water is a precious resource that gives us life - try to stay mindful of where your water is going while running water – turn it off when your toothbrush or hands are not under the faucet.

    How many gallons per minute (GPM) does your faucet release? You can usually find out by looking along the rim of your faucet where the water comes out. Sinks typically use about 2.2 gallons of water per minute and if you’re not careful you can easily use over 4 gallons every time you brush your teeth.

    Green Sink Products & Ideas

    1) Faucet Attachments: easy ways to reduce your sink's GPM
    a. Attach the Sink Faucet Aerator to your sink to reduce your GPM to 0.50. You just twist it onto your faucet. It only costs $1.50.
    b. The EZ Faucet sink attachment is a touch-free infrared sensor faucet adaptor. Your sink will turn on and off automatically when an object triggers the sensor. And as a nice side bonus it helps reduce germs from spreading. Cost is $60. But it will eventually pay for itself because this is a great way to reduce your water bill! Or consider the Miscea touch-free sink which can release soap as you wash.
    c. Conserve energy and water with the Solis Faucet, a sensor activated, solar-powered faucet that uses 0.50 gallons per minute.

    2) Toilet Lid Sink: Use the clean water from the tank in your toilet to wash your hands. This space saving product from Gaiam has a built in soap dish and an automatic shut off system. Installation is easy and the cost is $90. It’s a pretty neat product and will certainly become a popular conversation topic if you get one.

    3) Check for leaks: If you’re not careful a leaky faucet can easily waste 20 gallons of water per day. Keep your sink maintained and make sure your washers are nice and tight.

              A Silicon Valley for Drones, in North Dakota   
    By The New York Times
    “California and New York want what we’ve got,” said Shawn Muehler, a 30-year-old Fargo resident, gazing at a horizon of empty fields, silos, windbreak trees and hardly any people. A winged craft traces the air, mapping a field with pinpoint accuracy for his start-up, a drone software company called Botlink. “They like drones, but they’ve got a steep learning curve ahead.”

    For years, entrepreneurs have come here to farm and to drill for oil and natural gas. Now a new, tech-savvy generation is grabbing a piece of the growing market for drone technology and officials want to help them do it here, where there is plenty of open space and — unlike in other sparsely populated states — lots of expertise already in place.

    Silicon Valley has the big money and know-how, Mr. Muehler and others say, but North Dakota can take unmanned aerial vehicles, as the officials prefer to call drones, from a fast-growing hobby to an industry. And just as Silicon Valley got its start with military contracts, entrepreneurs and cooperative universities, they believe they can do the same with drones.

    “The potential up here is tremendous,” said Jack Dalrymple, the state’s governor. “It’s not about supporting a company or two; it’s creating the leading edge of an industry.”

    North Dakota has spent about $34 million fostering the state’s unmanned aerial vehicle business, most notably with a civilian industrial park for drones near Grand Forks Air Force Base. The base, a former Cold War installation, now flies nothing but robot aircraft for the United States military and Customs and Border Protection.

    Right now, private sector drones are where personal computers were in the 1970s: a hobbyist technology waiting to become mainstream. The technology research firm Gartner says that, barring regulatory hurdles, the United States drone business could be worth $7 billion in a decade.

    Companies are moving fast. Last month, Amazon released a video showing its planned delivery drone, and companies like Google and Facebook are working on big drone projects. DJI, a Chinese company that is the world’s largest maker of small drones, was funded last spring at a valuation of $10 billion.

    Small drones may bedevil cities with privacy concerns, even landing on the White House lawn, but rural states with farming, oil and rail lines see many practical reasons to put robots in the sky. Infrared imaging can judge crop health. Cameras can spot leaks and cracks in pipelines. Smaller copters can inspect windmill blades. Livestock can be located easily.

    Judging from Mr. Muehler’s proving grounds, if the occasional experimental craft crashes, it is unlikely to hit much beyond dirt. And with money, expertise and need here, people will keep trying.

    Grand Forks Air Force Base, 80 miles north of Fargo, has been an all-drone base since 2013. Big Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicles, made by Northrop Grumman, fly reconnaissance missions from the Yukon to Venezuela from there. 

    In a smaller brick building in Fargo, Mr. Muehler was once part of a North Dakota Air National Guard unit that flies missions over the Mideast and Afghanistan.

    Customs and Border Protection uses the Grand Forks field to patrol from Seattle to the Great Lakes with slightly smaller Predator drones. Sometimes those pilots take over from their Customs counterparts in Texas, patrolling the Rio Grande from screens 80 miles south of the Canadian border.

    Where B-52 bombers stood ready with nuclear bombs in the Cold War, the country’s first commercial unmanned aerial vehicle industrial park is under construction. Northrop Grumman and General Atomics, the Predator maker, are taking space to train pilots for international sales of the craft.

    Other businessmen are looking at modifying their craft for things like high-altitude surveillance of railroad tracks and pipelines. Involta, an Iowa-based operator of data centers that has already created a windmill inspection business in Grand Forks, is looking at building facilities specialized in collecting aerial information.

    A company called Field of View, near the planned site of the industrial park, makes aerial sensing equipment. An outfit called the Unmanned Applications Institute is working with providers away from North Dakota on things like local drone manufacture and warehousing.

    Nearby, the University of North Dakota, which already trains many of the nation’s commercial pilots and the air traffic controllers of some 18 countries, has 200 students learning to fly drones in a four-year program that started in 2009; 61 students have graduated from it. North Dakota State University, in Fargo, has also started teaching drone courses.

    Besides military contracts and educational talent, North Dakota also has high-tech talent. In 1999, Amazon purchased an online seller of tools and home improvement gear in Grand Forks, and the company now develops customer service software there. In 2001, Microsoft paid $1.1 billion for Great Plains Software of Fargo, and it now has an office there.

    The area has thousands of software engineers and not a few millionaires itching to get into the next big thing.

    “Every top engineer in all of Fargo works for Botlink,” Mr. Muehler boasted. “We have the top 10 engineers in town.”

    Mr. Muehler, who was educated as a pilot at North Dakota State, started on what became Botlink while flying missions from the brick building in Fargo. Governor Dalrymple refers to the military site as “once a well-kept-secret facility,” since its purpose has become common knowledge in the city of about 115,000 people.

    One night in early 2014, Mr. Muehler saw a report on Fox News about a hobbyist drone that flew into the airspace at La Guardia Airport in New York. That’s when he hit upon the idea for his business.

    “I figured there has to be some kind of software that can give awareness, let a drone know about things like boundaries and weather,” he said.

    Alex Kube, a high school friend who was working at the same facility, started making the software. Seven months later, he spoke at a meeting of local entrepreneurs and collected $500,000 in angel funding from local investors. Botlink was formed several months later when Mr. Muehler met Terri Zimmerman, a former chief financial officer at Great Plains who grew up on a farm near the Canadian border.

    “We want to be the Microsoft of the industry,” said Ms. Zimmerman, who is now Botlink’s chief executive, and runs another company, Packet Digital, involved in low-power semiconductors used for, among other things, military drones.

    So far, the company has raised $3 million more from private investors. “That’s like $14 million in Silicon Valley,” Ms. Zimmerman said.

              North Dakota Drone Test Site Set to Fly High at All Hours   
    By ABC News
    Of the six sites in the U.S. where researchers are trying to figure out how to integrate unmanned aircraft into civilian airspace, only North Dakota's can fly high both day and night.

    The Federal Aviation Administration approved a plan last week that allows drones to be flown up to 1,200 feet above the entire state and permits flights at night, a combination that makesNorth Dakota unique, since other test sites are limited to a 200-foot blanket and daylight hours.

    "It really expands the type of operations you can conduct," said Nicholas Flom, director of safety for the Northern Plains UAS Test Site.

    For example, some precision agriculture sensors are designed to function at a minimum altitude of 250 feet, he said, and drones that would be flown to look for hot spots in wildfires or used for search-and-rescue missions generally work better at a higher altitude because it gives the cameras a broader range.

    Alaska, New York, Nevada, Texas and Virginia also were selected in December 2013 as national test sites for unmanned aircraft, which the FAA does not currently allow for commercial use. As for why North Dakota's wide-open skies were chosen for the higher altitudes, the FAA referred questions to the North Dakota Department of Commerce.

    Officials at the Northern Plains site wasted no time getting up in the air at night last week with the Draganflyer X4ES, which was monitored by three University of North Dakota pilots.

    "With the lights on the aircraft, it's uniquely easy to see it," Flom said. "It's a little bit different perspective when they take off and land, just from a depth perspective standpoint, but there's no problem seeing anything."

    Flying drones at night can have many benefits, said Mark Hastings, the test site's director of operations. Infrared sensors, which can detect people or animals on the ground, seem to work better in cooler temperatures. There's also less air traffic in the nighttime hours and usually lower wind speeds, a challenge for drone pilots especially in North Dakota.

    The schedule for nighttime and high-altitude flights has not been determined, but the FAA will be closely monitoring the number of flights, Flom said.

    And getting high up has a lot of value, too, allowing cameras to collect more data over a larger area more quickly.

    North Dakota State University professor John Nowatzki is spearheading a research project that would use a large drone to monitor crop conditions and plans to ask for a special permit to put an unmanned aircraft with a 35-foot wing span in the Red River Valley at heights of 3,000, 5,000 and 8,000 feet. The pictures from higher altitudes will be compared to those from a smaller drone at 400 feet and satellite images to see what's best at identifying crop conditions such as nutrient deficiencies, disease symptoms and specific weeds.

    "The value of flying higher is what our research is going to be about in 2016," Nowatzki said.

    The project will identify which weeds are infesting specific crops, which parts of fields the weeds are infesting and the degree of the weed problem.

    "Crop producers and crop consultants need to identify specific weed infestations growing in various crop fields to implement effective weed management regimes," says NDSU Extension Service agricultural machine systems specialist John Nowatzki, the lead investigator on this project.

    Nowatzki, Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department Chair Sreekala Bajwa and Extension weed specialist Rich Zollinger have teamed up with Kris Poulson, Casselton-area agricultural producer and consultant, and agricultural lead for Sentera LLC in North Dakota, for the project.

    Sentera, a company based in Shakopee, Minn., that designs sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles and software technologies for a variety of uses, is the private- sector partner on this project. Company personnel will provide hardware and software engineering support for data collection and imagery processing.

    The North Dakota Department of Commerce awarded an $85,500 Research ND grant for the weed project.

    Project personnel are using an NDSU hand-held radio spectrometer and color, thermal and infrared sensors to measure light reflectance, intensity and color of weeds growing in NDSU greenhouses. They'll use the same hand-held sensor to collect data throughout the 2015 growing season in outdoor plot and field weed patches at NDSU's Carrington Research Extension Center and Prosper Research Site.

    Researchers also are using commercial sensors designed for manned and unmanned aircraft to collect reflectance values on the same greenhouse, plot and field weeds. The researchers will correlate the data from the commercial sensors and hand-held spectrometer, then publish and share the results with commercial agribusinesses and crop producers for use in their operations.

    The weeds they are identifying are kochia, wild buckwheat, green foxtail, wild oats and Canada thistle.

    The researchers also are monitoring NDSU research fields and commercial crop fields on the ground to identify the weeds growing in each one. They'll monitor each field every other week with sensors and cameras to demonstrate the effectiveness of imagery in weed identification. They will use computer analysis software to establish positive identification.

    This research will help producers spot weed problems early in the growing season so they can select the proper herbicide and get it applied on the crop.

    "Earlier herbicide application results in reduced weed competition with the growing crops and correlates with higher yields," Nowatzki says.

    Project results will be incorporated into NDSU Extension programs focused on helping producers and crop consultants use sensors to enhance their business activities. The information learned from this project also will be shared at a project field day.

              North Dakota UAV Business Grows   
    By Ag Week
    The UAV industry continues to grow and evolve, and Field of View is growing and evolving with it.

    New regulations for unmanned aerial vehicles proposed in February by the Federal Aviation Administration “are a breath of fresh air,” says David Dvorak, CEO of Grand Forks, N.D.-based Field of View. “They provide our industry with more confidence that this is going to happen. People are finally starting to invest in the technology, which is good for us.”

    The company, which he launched in 2010, seeks to “bridge the gap between unmanned aircraft and precision agriculture,” as the company’s website puts it.

    By all accounts, the use of UAVs, also known as drones and unmanned aircraft systems, can be a big plus in agriculture and other industries. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates easing current restrictions of UAVs would create 70,000 jobs and generate $13.6 billion in economic impact within three years in the U.S.

    The FAA’s new proposal, which could be enacted by the fall of 2016, would pave the way for widespread commercial use of drones weighing fewer than 55 pounds. The FAA wants to balance the economic value of commercial use against the safety risk.

    “The rule, as proposed, would seem to be good for agriculture,” Dvorak says. “So the regulatory side seems to be falling into place at last.”

    Field of View’s flagship product, GeoSnap, generally has drawn more interest overseas because other countries have fewer restrictions on air space. Now, with the FAA proposal, domestic interest is picking up.

    GeoSnap is an add-on device for multispectral cameras mounted on either manned or unmanned aircraft. Such cameras capture images in the red, green and near-infrared bands, allowing users to visualize plant stress better than they can with most other camera systems, Dvorak says.

    GeoSnap takes images captured by the multispectral camera and maps them with real-world coordinates, a process known as georeferencing. That allows users to know the aerial images’ exact location on the ground.

    Field of View recently came out with a less expensive version of GeoSnap, known as GeoSnap Express, “that will be useful for some of our newer customers,” Dvorak says. “Sometimes you just want to try it (the technology), and this is a really good system to help people get up and going with it.”

    GeoSnap Express costs $1,450 or $1,950, depending on the model. GeoSnap Pro, the original version, costs $7,000 or $9,000, depending on the model.

    Field of View also is offering a new product that involves thermal payloads.

    “We’re able to map vegetation temperature across the field, which will help give us an indication of where water stress might be and to detect where plants get sick,” Dvorak says.

    And Field of View has begun working with Minneapolis-based PowerOfGround to offer image processing services. For more information, visit www.powerofground.com.

    “Some people want to do that (image processing) themselves,” Dvorak says. “Others want somebody to do it for them.”

    Dvorak grew up in St. Cloud, Minn., and came to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks to study engineering. At UND, he developed a special interest in the use of unmanned aircraft and multispectral cameras in precision agriculture.

    He and another company employee work in Grand Forks. A third, an engineer, works in California. Field of View uses a Fargo, N.D., company for its international marketing.

    “Good things are happening in our industry,” Dvorak says. “And we see that continuing.”

              NDSU Evaluating Unmanned Aircraft System Technology   
    By Farm and Ranch Guide


    North Dakota State University researchers are taking to the air to monitor crop and livestock research projects on the ground.

    Several researchers on campus are working with colleagues at NDSU’s Carrington Research Extension Center to evaluate whether unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) can be effective management tools in crop and livestock production.

    “There is currently much interest in using UAS in agriculture,” says John Nowatzki, the NDSU Extension Service’s agricultural machine systems specialist and the lead investigator on this project. “However, there is little research to show that UAS can be used effectively or economically for crop or livestock management.”

    Researchers are using UAS-mounted thermal, infrared sensors and cameras that capture image data at specific frequencies to collect data from fields and livestock at specified times.

    The researchers plan to identify plant emergence and populations in corn, soybeans and sunflowers, and nitrogen deficiencies in corn and wheat. They’re also hoping the UAS can help them make early plant health assessments, and spot disease and insect damage symptoms, weed infestations and indications of moisture stress on irrigated crops.

    In addition, they plan to use the UAS to determine the impacts of tillage and crop rotations on crop emergence, vigor and yield, and the impacts of soil salinity on crop yields, as well as monitor the dry-down times of individual corn hybrids to determine when to harvest the crops.

    “The objective is to find out which observations taken from the plane can translate into immediate management actions, or possibly some observations may lead to corrective action for the following season,” says NDSU professor and Extension agronomist Hans Kandel, who is one of the project’s co-investigators.

    Crop production researchers have identified at least 40 research trials at the Carrington center they want included in the UAS project, according to Blaine Schatz, the center’s director.

    “On the livestock side of our research efforts, we will mostly be observing the beef cattle within multiple projects, and the observations will focus on capturing images that may help to determine animal health contrasts and animal behavior patterns,” Schatz says.

    For example, researchers plan to monitor the breeding activity of the center’s beef cattle, count the cattle in pastures to make sure they are where they are supposed to be, detect animals that are ill so they can be isolated from the rest of the herd and treated as quickly as possible, and identify animals that are aggressive toward other livestock or humans so they can be removed from herds.

    The researchers also intend to monitor animal temperatures and determine the feedlot surface temperatures of various bedding materials to mitigate stress from extreme weather conditions.

    “The individual NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center researchers will collaborate with project principal investigators to select appropriate sensors and monitoring schedules for their projects,” Nowatzki says. “These researchers also will collaborate with ABEN (NDSU Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department) personnel to correlate the UAS-sensed data with the data collected on the ground for each project.”

    The first UAS flights were on May 5. The Federal Aviation Administration gave North Dakota approval in April for the UAS test flights.

    A Research ND grant from the North Dakota Department of Commerce and a North Dakota Soybean Council research grant funded the project, Nowatzki says. The Research ND grant includes matching funds from two private-sector partners: the North Dakota Corn Council and LW Survey of Duluth, Minn.

    The University of North Dakota’s Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research, Education and Training is collaborating on this research by flying the UAS at the Carrington center. UND also will collect flight information from each flight of both UAS used in the project. The flight information will be shared with the FAA for its use in developing future UAS regulations.

    In addition to finding out whether UAS are effective in monitoring crop and livestock production, the researchers plan to develop methods to convert the image data to information that’s useful to producers and crop consultants, and help producers identify how they can make use of UAS on their operations.

    “The major benefit of UAS is that it offers a very affordable technology that the farmers or consultants can easily adopt,” says Sreekala Bajwa, NDSU ABEN chair and a UAS project co-investigator whose expertise is in remote sensing for precision agriculture. “It offers the flexibility that you can fly it anytime and at any area of interest with the proper safety regulations in place.”

    She thinks another huge advantage is that UAS potentially could cover a whole farm in a day or a few days and provide the producer with a visual of his or her entire field.

    “Monitoring the entire farm is a very time- and labor-intensive job,” she notes. “It is virtually impossible to look at all the field, even when a consultant is walking the fields. A UAS will allow the farmer or consultant to identify potential areas of concern and focus on those areas which may otherwise go undetected.”

    Bajwa believes this one-year project is just the beginning.

    “With our current research project, we are only touching the surface of possibilities,” she says. “Many researchers at NDSU are working in areas that can benefit from data collected from a UAS platform. I hope to see many more researchers taking active roles to capture this opportunity to address a research potential in their area of interest and, thus, positively impacting our state, region and nation in a significant way.”

              Could studying deaf horses shed light on treatment in humans?   

    Over the years, Chemistry Prof. Koren Lipsett has owned and rescued horses. Today, they are a focus of her research on deafness in humans.

    “My research lab focuses on genomic studies so we can understand human disease,” said Lipsett.

    Prof. LipsettSo far, Lipsett and her students have looked at blind cats, fibroblast growth factor (hair length) in cattle, and for the past seven years, deafness in horses. They hope by researching these issues and genetic diseases in large mammals, it will help researchers better understand how to treat human genetic disorders, like congenital blindness and deafness.

    Suzanne E. DiNello-Schleicher ’10, a biology and chemistry double major who is today a veterinarian, was the inspiration behind the horse project. One day in Lipsett’s lab, she was doing some preliminary research on the Internet and came across a story about a deaf colt.

    “Because she’s a horse person and a vet person, she said, ‘maybe we can pursue this,’” said Lipsett. “Well it turns out the family that owned that particular horse also had the parents and siblings in this pedigree of Spanish Mustangs. Not just one offspring was deaf. There were two deaf offspring that came from the same stallion and two different mares. So that started the project.”

    Working with larger mammals has its benefits, Lipsett says. For one, large mammals, as opposed to mice and rats, live longer. If, during transitional research, researchers are completing a treatment study, this allows scientists to study long-term implications. It’s humane: Lipsett uses hair plucked from the horse’s mane. It’s convenient: she uses her own horse and horses from the SPCA as experimental controls. She is currently working with a family from Virginia who owned deaf horses with white coats and blue eyes—the phenotype that studies have shown to correlate with deafness in other animals, like the Siberian Husky.

    This knowledge helped Lipsett’s lab narrow down their focus to a candidate gene called the KIT gene.

    Prof. Lipsett in the lab

    “In [other cases of mammals] that had deafness, white pigmentation, and blue eyes, it has come down to the KIT gene,” said Lipsett. “That particular gene is complex, but that’s not the only one that has been found—there are 5 or 6 genes that we identified as candidate genes. And our job is to methodically go through, sequencing those genes, to see if we can find the mutation.”

    The process involves examining the gene’s exons, the segments of the DNA that contain the coding information, or set of instructions, that translate to the protein of interest, for example.

    Benjamin Gantz ’16 was responsible for examining exon-21 in the KIT gene. They ran into several issues with designing primers, which is the first step to sequencing a gene.

    “Ben got to a point where we understood where the problem was, and by the time he graduated we a had a good understanding of what to do next,” said Lipsett.

    “Ben would say, ‘wow, I’m doing real science,’ and I’d say, ‘You've been doing real science the whole time!’ Because you need to think outside the box. There’s no canned answer.”

    “Many students have worked on this project before me. It was amazing to be able to pick up where they left off and continue this research,” echoed Gantz. “In independent research labs like Dr. Lipsett's, you are determining the answers to questions that no one on the planet knows. Other scientists may use our research to further their own understanding or study, but our findings will be a starting point for them.”

    Over the years, several students have worked on pieces of the project that have been published, like Kaytie Innamorati ’14, who is currently conducting research on Alzheimer’s Disease as a Ph.D. candidate at Drexel University. She is listed as a co-author on the abstract, “Determining the genetic basis of equine deafness via candidate gene studies.” Also, Alecia Achimovich ’16, a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Virginia, is a co-author with Kaytie on a recent abstract.

    Prof. Koren Lipsett working in the lab

    Today, Lipsett says the research is at the point where they have narrowed down which genes to focus on, and now it’s about consolidating the data order to identify a putative gene mutation. As with the blind cat study, the next step will be to explore the mechanism of pathology that will help define how the gene mutation translated to disease symptoms like blindness or deafness.

    “We care about this because we can directly correlate it to human studies,” said Lipsett. “The more we understand the gene function in a mammal model, the more likely we can understand the equivalent function in humans. Then, we can apply that knowledge to characterize and potentially treat the genetic disorder.”

    A biological career pathway

    Lipsett didn’t start working with DNA until she came to Gettysburg. But looking at her journey, the path to that research seemed inevitable.

    “I loved biochemistry in college,” she said. “I didn’t do genomics, I did protein studies. It’s related to the biological system, and that’s what’s exciting to me. My work evolved slowly, as in any research career. You don’t necessarily stay in the same track, but your research takes you down new tracks and lets you solve cool new problems.”

    Prof. Koren LipsettDuring Lipsett’s postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, she studied metabolic pathways at the genomic level and how specific genes, and the gene products, participate in a given biological pathway. She and her colleagues worked on identifying the gene corresponding to an enzyme involved in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in fungus, furthering their understanding of the pathways in natural product biosynthesis. For example, aflatoxins are a family of carcinogenic toxins that are produced by fungi and can be found contaminating grain and peanuts (peanut butter). Aflatoxin can cause liver cancer. In the United States, we screen our crops for the contaminant, but other countries might not.

    “My interest is studying these pathways,” she said. Because nature produces antifungal, anticancer and antibacterial agents, she asks questions like, What structural features of the molecule inhibit growth, and How can we modify and make a better antifungal [agent]?

    “By applying knowledge gained from understanding the biosynthetic pathway, and the genes involved in that pathway, one can learn from nature and perhaps make the next new therapeutic drug based on that knowledge,” she said. “Learning from nature is really cool!”

    Lipsett describes herself as “jumping” into mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial genomic studies began with looking at genomic variations in mitochondrial DNA, some of which have been identified as causing mitochondrial myopathies.

    Plucking Patent

    This past January, Lipsett received some exciting news: A letter notifying her that she was issued a United States patent for the “Isolation and Characterization of a Single Mitochondron.”

    Lipsett explained that one characteristic of mitochondria is that it contains multiple copies of the mitochondrial genome, and each cell can contain many mitochondria.

    “If there is a mutation in one copy of the genome, and there are 100 copies total, the other 99 copies are fine,” she said. “So why should one copy interfere with the cell?” Her questions led to studies to learn more about how that one modified copy becomes the predominant version, and therefore, causative of mitochondrial disease symptoms.

    She and her colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designed a technique using what is described as “optical tweezers” that can trap and then isolate a single mitochodrion using an infrared laser.  

    Lipsett decided to apply for the patent after speaking with one of her former research students.

    “Christian Bauer ’97, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, went to get his master’s in forensic science,” said Lipsett. Bauer continued his education and became a patent attorney. “He was visiting to speak with students for a career panel, and he said, ‘apply for a patent—that’s intellectual property!’”

    Lipsett switched gears and began examining nuclear—as opposed to the mitochondrial—genomic variations. During a sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, her research path transitioned to examining pedigrees of large mammals in order to identify the gene responsible for a specific disease.

    “I like learning new tools for finding that needle in the haystack, that Eureka moment,” she said. “We haven’t found it yet in the deafness project, but we’ve gathered enough information from this deaf horse study to think it’s more complex than just one gene.”


              Comment on Creationist Wisdom #783: Eyes Disprove Evolution by Eric Lipps   
    The problem for such people is that they can't, or won't, get past the notion that it's either the eye as we know it today or nothing. But we have known instances of more primitive structures which serve somewhat the same purpose as an eye. The "pits" of a pit viper, for example, are lined with photoreceptors sensitive to infrared radiation; these help the snakes spot their warm-blooded prey at night or in shadow. They're not full-formed "eyes," but clearly represent a step in that direction. And once again there's the question: if it's so easy to disprove evolution that undereducated laymen can do it in an instant, why didn't the theory flop immediately in the nineteenth century, when belief in Genesis was still widespread among credible scientists?
              Stay Cool    

    Summer officially started this week. Has anyone checked with Mother Nature? Are we sure she got the memo? Seriously, sometimes I can’t tell where we are with the weather. I don’t really mind the hot weather at all, as long as I can do things like jump in a river, or ride my bike. The warmer days had me thinking about an interesting topic that spans a bit more than just electricity and magnetism, but I thought it might be interesting anyway. How do we cool things down?

    I’ve always been fascinated by this actually. Even as a child, I could understand, heating things up was easy. Fire is easy. Warming myself up in winter with a heavier jacket was easy. Cooling things down is always trickier, and there are several ways to do it. To get a better understanding of how we cool things down, we have to start at the very basics. What is temperature? Actually, what we call temperature is a measure of motion, specifically of atoms and particles. They’re not moving from A to B, but rather, vibrating in place, or in the case of gases, moving around haphazardly. The faster they move, the higher the temperature of the substance. When all motion stops, the substance if brutally cold. So cold, in fact, that it has a special name: absolute zero. Absolute zero is approximately -273.15 Celsius or -459.67 Fahrenheit. We even have a temperature scale that starts at absolute zero, called the Kelvin scale. 0 Kelvin is absolute zero. The motion of the atoms or particles also gives off something called black body radiation. This is simply thermal-spectrum electromagnetic radiation. As such, it’s part of the electromagnetic spectrum I wrote about some time ago. This is how infrared cameras work as well as any thermal imaging camera.

    With that background in place, it’ll make more sense when I explain certain cooling methods we commonly use. One of the most efficient and effective cooling methods is gas decompression. This is how nearly all refrigerators, air conditioners and heat pumps work. In any gas, the molecules comprising the gas are spaced pretty far apart. When you compress them into a tinier volume of space, the gas will increase in temperature. Is this because the particles are now hitting each other more often and creating more frictional heating? It would be nice if that’s how it worked, but it’s actually a bit more complicated than that. The simplest way to understand heating of compressed gas is to understand conservation of energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Compressing a gas requires some amount of energy, and that energy has to go somewhere. It ends up going into the gas causing the particles to move faster, which we observe as heat. From a physical standpoint, the gas particles are interacting with the boundaries of their space more frequently as the space containing them shrinks. The most scientifically accurate explanation of the temperature increase is that by reducing the available volume of space, you’re increasing your theoretical knowledge of where each particle is. Instead of being somewhere in a huge volume of space, each particle is now in some much smaller volume. You’re decreasing the entropy of the gas. That knowledge doesn’t come free though. The particles essentially say, “ok, we’ll let you know more about where we are, but in turn we’re going to let you know less about our speeds, because we’re going to move faster.”

    Whew…all of that. Are you still with me? Hadley, you haven’t mentioned a single thing about cooling yet! Just heating! Yes, but now all the pieces are available. When we compress a gas, it heats up for the reasons stated above, but we can do something with that heat. We don’t have to let the gas just stay hot. This is what refrigerators do. Once they compress a gas, they pass it through some type of heat sink. This is a device that allows the heat of the gas/fluid inside to dissipate as quickly as possible to the ambient environment. Once this happens, we have a roughly room temperature compressed gas. If we allow the gas to decompress, its temperature will fall…to below room temperature. The particles are now saying, “ok, you’re increasing our volume, and this means you’ll know less about where we are. So to compensate, we’ll slow down a bit so you can at least know how fast we’re going.” Obviously the trick in any of these refrigeration systems is being able to compress the gas a lot as well as being able to efficiently remove the heat from the compressed gas.

    This process will work for any gas, including air. In fact, I encounter this phenomenon every time I air down the tires on my bike. The tires are filled with ordinary air, compressed to between 90 and 110 PSI. When initially pressurized, they do heat up, but over time, they cool to ambient temperature. When I rapidly release the pressure, the valve becomes noticeably cold to the touch. In most refrigeration, we don’t use air, we use some kind of refrigerant, like Freon. Freon is the trademark name for any number of different gasses used as refrigerants known as halocarbons. You’ve probably heard of at least some of these by their scientific name, chlorofluorocarbons (abbreviated CFCs). These are the same CFCs that scientists discovered were causing ozone depletion in the 1980s and 1990s, so they aren’t in widespread use anymore. All refrigerants are just special types of gas that have properties that are beneficial to what we’ll be doing with them.

    The important thing to remember is that if you’re unable to remove the heat from the compressed gas, and you let it decompress, all it will do is decrease back to roughly room temperature where it started. So it won’t be cool the way we want it. If you want the gas to be very cold, you have to make its starting temperature less. There is actually no limit to this (beyond absolute zero) and this is how we create extremely cold substances like liquid nitrogen. In fact, you can sometimes create bits of dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) by releasing a fire extinguisher into a burlap sack. The CO2 in the fire extinguisher is compressed, and if it’s been sitting long enough, it’s also at room temperature. Releasing the pressure causes a large decrease in temperature. So large that the gas actually solidifies into its solid state.

    Hopefully this was an interesting slight deviation from my usual topics of electromagentism.

              Study: Bats May Mistake Wind Turbines For Trees    
    An unprecedented number of bats are being killed by wind turbine blades. A new report has found bats may be mistaking wind turbines for trees. Bats are often looking for a place to roost when the moon is bright and winds are low. That’s when the conditions can be the deadliest for bats flying near wind turbines. U.S. Geological Survey researchers used infrared video to track movements at a wind farm. They saw more bats approaching the turbines when the blades were moving slower than when they were moving faster. Paul Cryan is the lead researcher for the study. He says bats can detect trees by the wind currents around them. He says, “Wind turbines and trees might feel the same from an air flow perspective.” Researchers in Canada and the U.S. found that when they only let the turbines spin on windier days, the bat deaths dropped by 50 percent.

              Science on the SPOT: Up all Night with SOFIA, NASA's Flying Observatory   

    Seen from the exterior with its rear canopy closed, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) aircraft looks much like a typical jumbo jet you might see at any airport– perhaps even reminiscent of another well-known, heavily modified Boeing 747, Air Force One.

    "SOFIA has a lot of characteristics ...

              A peculiar galaxy appears at redshift 11: properties of a moderate-redshift interloper   
    First Author: Hayes, Matthew
    Instruments: XSHOOTER
    ProgramIDs: 087.A-0118
    BibCode: 2012MNRAS.425L..19H

    In 2011 Laporte et al. reported a very high redshift galaxy candidate: a lensed J-band dropout (A2667-J1). J1 has a photometric redshift of z= 9.6-12, the probability density function for which permits no low- or intermediate-z solution. We here report new spectroscopic observations of this galaxy with Very Large Telescope/X-Shooter, which show clear [O III] λ5007 Å, Lyα, Hα and Hβ emission and place the galaxy firmly at z= 2.082. The oxygen lines contribute only ˜25 per cent to the H-band flux and do not significantly affect the dropout selection of J1. After correcting the broad-band fluxes for line emission, we identify two roughly equally plausible natures for A2667-J1: it is either a young heavily reddened starburst or a maximally old system with a very pronounced 4000-Å break, upon which a minor secondary burst of star formation is superimposed. Fits show that to make a 3σ detection of this object in the B band (V band), imaging of depth AB = 30.2 (29.5) would be required - despite the relatively bright near-infrared (NIR) magnitude, we would need optical data of equivalent depth to the Hubble Ultra Deep Field to rule out the mid-z solution on purely photometric grounds. Assuming that this stellar population can be scaled to the NIR magnitudes of recent Hubble Space Telescope/Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) IR-selected galaxies, we conclude that unfeasibly deep optical data (reaching AB ˜ 32) would be required for the same level of security. There is a population of galaxies at z≈ 2 with continuum colours alone that mimic those of our z= 7-12 candidates. Vacuum wavelengths are quoted.
              Fine structure of the age-chromospheric activity relation in solar-type stars. I. The Ca II infrared triplet: Absolute flux calibration   
    First Author: Lorenzo-Oliveira, D.
    Instruments: FEROS
    ProgramIDs: .
    BibCode: 2016A&A...595A..11L

    Context. Strong spectral lines are useful indicators of stellar chromospheric activity. They are physically linked to the convection efficiency, differential rotation, and angular momentum evolution and are a potential indicator of age. However, for ages 〉 2 Gyr, the age-activity relationship remains poorly constrained thus hampering its full application.
    Aims: The Ca II infrared triplet (IRT lines, λλ 8498, 8542, and 8662) has been poorly studied compared to classical chromospheric indicators. We report in this paper absolute chromospheric fluxes in the three Ca II IRT lines, based on a new calibration tied to up-to-date model atmospheres.
    Methods: We obtain the Ca II IRT absolute fluxes for 113 FGK stars from high signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) and high-resolution spectra covering an extensive domain of chromospheric activity levels. We perform an absolute continuum flux calibration for the Ca II IRT lines anchored in atmospheric models calculated as an explicit function of effective temperatures (Teff), metallicity ([Fe/H]), and gravities (log g) avoiding the degeneracy usually present in photometric continuum calibrations based solely on color indices.
    Results: The internal uncertainties achieved for continuum absolute flux calculations are ≈2% of the solar chromospheric flux, one order of magnitude lower than for photometric calibrations. Using Monte Carlo simulations, we gauge the impact of observational errors on the final chromospheric fluxes due to the absolute continuum flux calibration and find that Teffuncertainties are properly mitigated by the photospheric correction leaving [Fe/H] as the dominating factor in the chromospheric flux uncertainty.
    Conclusions: Across the FGK spectral types, the Ca II IRT lines are sensitive to chromospheric activity. The reduced internal uncertainties reported here enable us to build a new chromospheric absolute flux scale and explore the age-activity relation from the active regime down to very low activity levels and a wide range of Teff, mass, [Fe/H], and age.Based on spectroscopic observations collected at the Observatório do Pico dos Dias (OPD), operated by the Laboratório Nacional de Astrofísica, CNPq, Brazil, and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), within the ON/ESO and ON/IAG agreements, under FAPESP project No. 1998/10138-8.Full Table 1 is only available at the CDS via anonymous ftp to http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr (http://130.79.128.5) or via http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/595/A11

              New Product: Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP   

    The Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP is the lastest addition to the family of Astromik ProPlanet IR-pass filters. The filter thrills because of it´s wide range of applikations for daylight IR-Photography, high-resolution lunar and planetary imaging and for taking beautifull and deep images of H-alpha regions when used for Astrophotography.

    "BP" are short for "Bandpass": The filter gives you a 200nm spectral window from 642nm to 842nm. Contrary to the other two ProPlanet filters it blocks the longer infrared. Together with the Astronmik ProPlanet 742 and the ProPlanet 807 you can now have three choices to match your needs when imaging in the IR. The Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP will be the right choice for the best image quite often!

    The camera is different from the human eye. The dynamic range of the human eye is quite wide, allowing us to easily see detail in bright and dim areas simultaneously. While modern cameras have made great advances in range, they are still not able to match what we can see with our own eyes. They have trouble holding detail in scenes with a wide range of tones. To compensate for this, we can use ND Grads to selectively darken an area of the frame. NiSis IRND Grad uses the same patented infrared damping coating technology as the IRND filters. It absorbs the light from the IR spectrum, up to 1200 nm, effectively eliminating IR light pollution from reaching your sensor. This ensures that you are able to accurately and uniformly capture the full spectrum of visible light.
              Honeywell Wifi Thermostat wrong voltage?   
    Earlier this spring I bought a new Honeywell wifi thermostat to replace the 5-2 Honeywell thermostat we had for 12 years that quit on us. It seemed to function fine for the first couple of months of a very cool spring (Northern VA) with a day of heat and another day of cold, etc. Now that the heat has arrived for good I think something is wrong and the previous couple of months the system appeared ok because the house is well insulated and the temps were staying away from extremes. A couple of days ago I noticed that it was REALLY getting cold in certain portions of the house that don't have a lot of circulation. I also noticed the AC was running a LOT, like hours on end. i started taking a look at stuff and noticed that the thermostat was showing 77 degrees indoors even though I had it set for 74 on a program most of the day except the middle when we are out and it goes to a 76 setting. I put a digital air thermometer next to the thermostat and it showed 74.3. I put an infrared thermometer on the metal floor registers and they show low 60's. After some reading on the net I discovered some feel they have calibration issues and they need to change the offset. I changed it to 3 degrees (wasn't pleased, I feel the thermostat should be more accurate than that) and it seemed to be in line with the other thermometer for the last couple of days. However, the system is still running almost constantly and still running even when the thermostat shows the room as the set temperature. Here is a pic of this situation: Image: https://photos-5.dropbox.com/t/2/AAD6EDoqIBblW9kpm6a5Q-st8k3ocyR594lg59ducVVSVw/12/96324003/jpeg/32x32/1/_/1/2/2017-07-01%2018.24.11.jpg/EKfZ3UoY5Y8DIAIoAigE/7f3z16OHjqX-NChhqHwNQ0tTPuQqjIeOnBsxQo1W5o8?size=2048x1536&size_mode=3 I called Honeywell today and told them all above. The person on the phone said they stand behind the thermostat calibration and it might be a voltage problem. While on the phone I got out a meter and they had me pull the front off the thermostat and check the voltage between the R and G pins. I checked by touching the solder points on the outside of the wires so I didnt' have to pull them out. I got 3.0v. They said that was the problem and that the thermostat requires 24v and the thermostat is probably reading incorrectly because of that. I read up on the 24v issue and I see it does need 24 and I only have 3. That said, I think my system is new enough tech (2005) to be supplying the 24v. So have I wired something wrong? Even if the voltage caused the incorrect temp reading, would that cause it to continue...

              Comment on Thus It Begins by Donald L. Klipstein   
    Gabro: Regarding "fourth CO2 molecule out of 10,000 dry air molecules": Are you claiming CO2 is so greatly a trace gas that the increase from 280 to 405-410 PPMV doesn't matter? How is this reconciled with arguments that CO2 is so powerful that its infrared spectral effect was already saturated when it was at 280 PPMV so increase above that does not matter?

    The map of the Milky Way Galaxy

    Like early explorers mapping the continents of our globe, astronomers are busy charting the spiral structure of our galaxy, the Milky Way. Using infrared images from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists have discovered that the Milky Way's elegant spiral structure is dominated by just two arms wrapping off the ends of a central bar of stars. Previously, our galaxy was thought to possess four major arms.

    This annotated artist's concept illustrates the new view of the Milky Way, along with other findings presented at the 212th American Astronomical Society meeting in St. Louis, Mo. The galaxy's two major arms (Scutum-Centaurus and Perseus) can be seen attached to the ends of a thick central bar, while the two now-demoted minor arms (Norma and Sagittarius) are less distinct and located between the major arms. The major arms consist of the highest densities of both young and old stars; the minor arms are primarily filled with gas and pockets of star-forming activity.

    The artist's concept also includes a new spiral arm, called the "Far-3 kiloparsec arm," discovered via a radio-telescope survey of gas in the Milky Way. This arm is shorter than the two major arms and lies along the bar of the galaxy.

    Our Sun lies near a small, partial arm called the Orion Arm, or Orion Spur, located between the Sagittarius and Perseus arms.

    Jupiter seen by Juno spacecraft in Near Infrared

    This composite infrared image of Jupiter reveals haze particles over a range of altitudes, as seen in reflected sunlight. It was taken using the Gemini North Telescope's Near-InfraRed Imager (NIRI) on May 18, 2017, in collaboration with the investigation of Jupiter by NASA's Juno mission. Juno completed its sixth close approach to Jupiter a few hours after this observation.

    The multiple filters corresponding to each color used in the image cover wavelengths between 1.69 microns and 2.275 microns. Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS) appears as the brightest (white) region at these wavelengths, which are primarily sensitive to high-altitude clouds and hazes near and above the top of Jupiter's convective region.

    The GRS is one of the highest-altitude features in Jupiter's atmosphere. Narrow spiral streaks that appear to lead into it or out of it from surrounding regions probably represent atmospheric features being stretched by the intense winds within the GRS, such as the hook-like structure on its western edge (left side). Some are being swept off its eastern edge (right side) and into an extensive wave-like flow pattern, and there is even a trace of flow from its northern edge.

    Other features near the GRS include the dark block and dark oval to the south and the north of the eastern flow pattern, respectively, indicating a lower density of cloud and haze particles in those locations. Both are long-lived cyclonic circulations, rotating clockwise -- in the opposite direction as the counterclockwise rotation of the GRS.

    A prominent wave pattern is evident north of the equator, along with two bright ovals, which are anticyclones that appeared in January 2017. Both the wave pattern and the ovals may be associated with an impressive upsurge in stormy activity that has been observed in these latitudes this year. Another bright anticyclonic oval is seen further north. The Juno spacecraft may pass over these ovals, as well as the Great Red Spot, during its close approach to Jupiter on July 10, 2017, Pacific Time (July 11, Universal Time).

    High hazes are evident over both polar regions with much spatial structure not previously been seen quite so clearly in ground-based images

    The filters used for observations combined into this image admit infrared light centered on the following infrared wavelengths (and presented here in these colors): 1.69 microns (blue), 2.045 microns (cyan), 2.169 microns (green), 2.124 microns (yellow), and 2.275 microns (red).

              Tackling Efficiency at Yestermorrow   
    by Kate Stephenson, Executive Director

    When I give tours of the Yestermorrow campus, frequently I end up telling folks we have many components of a high performance building. But one of the challenges of working to renovate and retrofit an existing building (originally a hotel built in 1960) in phases over time is that often you don't get a chance to look at the larger picture of the building as a whole. Every year we continue to work our way through an extensive punch list of deferred maintenance and improvements with the ultimate goal of improving the student experience here at Yestermorrow. But it's been a few years since we took a step back to look at the bigger picture.

    Luckily, we have some amazing expertise right here in the Yestermorrow family. In September we had a visit from Donna Leban, a new member of the Yestermorrow faculty and a local lighting designer focused on energy efficiency in lighting. Through Efficiency Vermont's RELIGHT program which provides financial support to businesses interested in lighting retrofits, we were able to hire Donna to do a comprehensive lighting audit of Yestermorrow's main building and recommend potential upgrades including LEDs and controls.

    Brad and Sayer set up the blower door
    The next step was to bring in Brad Cook from Building Performance Services LLC in Waitsfield. Brad has been a long time friend of Yestermorrow, going back to when he was on staff at the school in the 1980s. He is BPI-certified to conduct energy audits and offered to donate a full audit of Yestermorrow's main building. A couple weeks ago he came by with his blower doors, infrared camera, combustion testing equipment to go through the whole building. Overall, we actually did better on the blower door test than we expected, coming out at 5,639 cfm-50 (cubic feet per minute at 50 Pascals). For an 10,000 square foot building that is decent for air tightness. However, we certainly found areas of potential improvement- failed windows, cracks around rough openings and in corners of sheetrock, and gaps in insulation between the foundation wall and first floor. Over the next couple of weeks we will work with Brad to put together a list of recommendations to improve the building envelope, and we're using a Kill-a-Watt meter to look at energy usage of specific appliances around the school.

    Reviewing the blower door results via two different wifi enabled devices
    Meanwhile we have also been looking at the bigger picture of the overall environmental impact of the organization. This summer we worked with a summer intern from the Community College of Vermont, Lisa Thacker, to update our Environmental Impact Report. We had published the first version of this report in 2011 with help from instructor Jim Newman of Linnean Solutions. Lisa and our staff went through the extensive process of reviewing data from 2012-2013 to update the metrics identified in the original report- including electricity, propane and water usage as well as local purchasing and occupancy. We will have the updated report up on our website by the end of the month.

    Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to look at the efficiency of the campus and ways to reduce our footprint!

              Near-infrared light-triggered drug release from a multiple lipid carrier complex using an all-in-one strategy.   

    Near-infrared light-triggered drug release from a multiple lipid carrier complex using an all-in-one strategy.

    J Control Release. 2017 Jun 27;:

    Authors: Li H, Yang X, Zhou Z, Wang K, Li C, Qiao H, Oupicky D, Sun M

    Abstract
    The present study reports a drug delivery system comprising nanostructured lipid carrier (NLCs) within liposomes (Lip-NLCs). This multiple lipid carrier complex features laser-triggered responsive drug release. Both hydrophobic and hydrophilic drugs can be loaded into the same formulation by applying an all-in-one strategy. We hypothesized that if we loaded the hydrophobic near-infrared (NIR) dye IR780 into the liposome phospholipid bilayer, the bilayer would be disrupted by laser irradiation so that drug release would be triggered remotely at the tumor site. We used in vitro and in vivo methods to verify that laser irradiation facilitated controlled release of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic drugs. The degree of drug release triggered by NIR laser light could be adjusted by varying the laser intensity and irradiation time. Following laser treatment, hydrophilic AMD3100 was released from the aqueous liposome chamber and then bound with CXCR4 receptors on the tumor cell surface to inhibit metastasis. NLCs carrying lipophilic IR780 were also released from the aqueous chamber of liposomes and taken up into tumor cells to enhance the photothermal therapeutic effect of IR780. More importantly, Lip-NLCs loaded with IR780 and AMD3100 (IR780-AMD-Lip-NLCs) exhibited enhanced anti-tumor and anti-metastasis effects. These results suggest that Lip-NLCs are a safe and simply prepared all-in-one platform for delivery of drugs with different solubilities. This system facilitates easily controlled release of cargoes to achieve multi-functional combined therapy.

              Redox-sensitive and hyaluronic acid functionalized liposomes for cytoplasmic drug delivery to osteosarcoma in animal models.   

    Redox-sensitive and hyaluronic acid functionalized liposomes for cytoplasmic drug delivery to osteosarcoma in animal models.

    J Control Release. 2017 Jun 27;:

    Authors: Chi Y, Yin X, Sun K, Feng S, Liu J, Chen D, Guo C, Wu Z

    Abstract
    This study aimed to develop redox-sensitive and CD44-targeted liposomes to improve chemotherapy of osteosarcoma. Cationic liposomes were prepared and stabilized with a novel detachable polyethylene glycol (PEG2000) conjugated with cholesterol through a bio-reducible disulfide linker (Chol-SS-mPEG). Hyaluronic acid (HA, MW 20-40kDa), a ligand to CD44, was non-covalently coated on the cationic liposomes. Doxorubicin (DOX) was actively loaded in the liposomes as a model drug. The roles of HA and Chol-SS-mPEG on intracellular drug delivery efficiency, and antitumor efficacy were studied. The structure of Chol-SS-mPEG was confirmed with Fourier-transform infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR). The liposomes, Chol-SS-mPEG/HA-L had a mean diameter of 165nm, zeta potential -28.9mV, and destabilized in reducing or acidic (pH5-6) conditions. In vitro release of DOX was well-controlled at physiological conditions, but a burst release of 60% was observed in the presence of 10mM glutathione (GSH), in contrast to non-redox sensitive liposomes (Chol-mPEG/HA-L and Chol-mPEG-L). MTT cell viability assay showed that the dual-functional Chol-SS-mPEG/HA-L with a drug loading of 15.0% (w/w) had significantly higher cytotoxicity to MG63 osteosarcoma cells compared with non-reduction sensitive or non-HA coated liposomes (p<0.01), consistent with the cellular uptake and intracellular trafficking studies using confocal microscopy and flow cytometry. Furthermore, the HA-coated GSH-responsive liposomes preferentially internalized to MG63 over human liver cells LO2. In rats, liposomes stabilized with either Chol-SS-mPEG or Chol-mPEG, with or without HA, increased the half-life of DOX by >10-fold. In a MG63 xenograft mouse model, Chol-SS-mPEG/HA-L showed the most effective tumor suppression with minimal uptake by the liver compared with other liposomes. All animals treated with liposomal formulations survived, in contrast to those free-DOX treated. In conclusion, the easily prepared Chol-SS-mPEG/HA-L was demonstrated as an excellent CD44-mediated intracellular delivery system capable of long-circulation and GSH-triggered cytoplasmic drug release. Further translational and multidisciplinary research is required to make it real clinical benefits to cancer patients.
