Crowd Mics

This app presents an interesting concept – you can use your smartphone as it were a microphone to be used by someone at a conference.

Instead of having to pick the wireless microphone for you to speak to the entire crowd, you just have to use your phone as if it were the microphone.

Herpes Virus Rearranges Telomeres to Improve Viral Replication

A team of scientists, led by researchers at The Wistar Institute, has found that an infection with herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) causes rearrangements in telomeres, small stretches of DNA that serve as protective ends to chromosomes. The findings, which will be published in the Dec. 24 edition of the journal Cell Reports, show that this manipulation of telomeres may explain how viruses like herpes are able to successfully replicate while also revealing more about the protective role that telomeres play against other viruses.

Insulin, sugar, and evolution

In my last post, I wrote about insulin and interesting features of the insulin structure. Some of the things I learned were really surprising. For example, I was surprised to learn how similar pig and human insulin are.

Impressoras de comida…

Ao ver coisas como esta fico a pensar que não estará muito longe o dia em que teremos uma máquina que aceite moedinhas de 10 cêntimos a 50 escudos e que “imprima” chocolates e “pasteis de nata” disponível nas estações de metro e centros comerciais.
Uns poderão ainda ir mais longe e colocar uma pastelaria em que não existe qualquer “cozinha”, mas sim uma impressora a fazer os bolos e equipada só com Bimby’s para fazer sandes? A sério, ainda não existe Bimby’s capazes de fazerem sandes ?!?
