Daniel Mihai Popescu67,008*Music, Twitter and SF@My most recent circle! I hope you don't mind if I mention you in comments, since my notification system doesn't seem to work.It is the first round, I'm not sure this will be the definitive version.Best wishes :)Lately I developed a fixation for Tsu, and if you don't have a profile there, this is my invitation:http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuIf you already have one, let's be friends and help each other grow!It'll be awesome to meet you there too! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-16 20:37:15498000
Daniel Mihai Popescu66,628This circle is called Amalgam :)It is a mixture of new and very old friends. Of course, the Invincible is always present :)I've been a little bit disappointed for losing some guys I've even grown so fond of lately, so fond that they were in my notification circle, something very rare. They left me without a word, but that's not a problem, because everything goes on :)You are not required to do a single thing, I'll mention you in comments, I hope you don't mind :) I do this because the notifications don't work with my account, it's still an enigma, so I can't say that if you receive a notification from me, you're a member in this circle. It's sure you're a member if I mention you. That's one thing.Another thing is that you, the members, don't have to share the circle. I can't pretend from you, what I don't do with your circles. It's somehow a kind of reciprocally membership, which is a signal for others :) You, my circle members, are some of the most precious people on G+, and you have to be sure of that.So, for my followers, especially the new ones, it'll be good for you to add this circle because you'll gain a lot on your stream! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-12-11 22:33:4849412770151

Daniel Mihai Popescu65,671This circle is called Plusers which with a few exceptions is quite vintage :)Don't do anything with it if you don't like, it comes without strings for members, which are the cream of the cream of G+, as you see starting with the cover :)A "plus one" will be very appreciated, and to consider my invitation to Tsu, if you don't have already an account there:http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuThank you for being my friends! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance   #tsu   #tsunation   #tsuinvitation   2014-11-28 19:26:42495000

Again, I hope you don't mind if I mention you.Wishing you a nice week ahead and if you aren't already on Tsu, the new trendy network, break the ice and fill the form after you click on the link :)http://www.tsu.co/DanielMihaiPopescuI know that a lot of you are there already and that's just fine. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  2014-11-24 23:11:163068358104

Daniel Mihai Popescu62,006I am happy to have you as friends! This is another Great Engagers circle, and if you'll be mentioned in the comments (since my notification sending system still doesn't work), means that you are members in it.A "+1" will be more than sufficient, only if you have the time :) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  For others, you do what you want, but this is a great circle to add to yours, as all my other public circles.Thank you for being here, and I wish you a great weekend!2014-10-25 14:28:5549713174181
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,717One of my Engagers circles :)Dedicated to you, it comes without string attached. I just hope you don't mind mentioning you all in the comments, since my notifications don't work. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  A "+1" will be more than enough for members :)I am sad when I see someone removing accounts he follows after a couple of weeks of "inactivity", no matter the communication and the good collaboration they have with the removed accounts. People letting the software to work for them, people with less defined scopes here, or quite very good defined.I have just used +Circloscope to have a look on the activity :)I remember faces, I remember names, I know guys from other networks, I can't bring myself to remove them when they haven't posted here for more than one week, one month, or even three.Where are we going? Isn't there enough room for everybody, or are some of you just bored of my rants?I hope you enjoy this circle, and tell me if I forgot someone. Thank you!2014-10-21 21:34:3248116177193
Daniel Mihai Popescu61,295This circle is called Survivors!  It is dedicated to all of you :)I waited to fill it a little more with some new faces :)I hope you are notified, if not, nothing changes.Just a "+1" is more than enough (and I speak here for the members) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircles   #maximumperformance  It is an homage to you, so there's no need to share it, there are no conditions. If I forgot any of you, please forgive me and tell me, instead of uncircle me without notice :)I never was in "follow me and I'll follow you back" game, not here, nor on Twitter, where people are more liberal :)I'm out of the sharing circles game, as most of you already have noticed, and it's up to anyone to do whatever he/she/it likes with that :) I thank to any of you who kept in their public shared circles the time I have been absent (there was a very motivated reason for it), and I'm absolutely passive about the people who took me out of their public circles, considering they have not an immediate benefit from that. Oh, and I'm very glad because some circle spammers have unfollowed me. I do not really deserve their company :)Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!2014-10-18 18:08:10469383955

Graeme McRae30,763Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then please reshare it! It's a circle of people I started following in May, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest is other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoying spam -- maybe 52014-08-12 05:51:49351364662

Lens-Free Microscopy Brings Pathology Lab Anywhere.

A new lens-free microscopy technique allows for wide-field viewing of pathology slides using a small, cheap, and portable device. The device creates a holographically reconstructed image the objects within which can be brought into focus at any depth following the image capture. Unlike normal optical microscopes, this does not require any mechanical components to move the lens, making image capture nearly automatic.

When to take (which) antibiotics.

Antibiotics are medications used to treat, and in some cases prevent, bacterial infections. They can be used to treat relatively mild conditions as well as potentially life-threatening conditions such as pneumonia. However, antibiotics often have no benefit for many other types of infection and using them unnecessarily would only increase the risk of antibiotic resistance.

On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

Next generation of Heart Pacemake can prevent Heart Attack and other Heart Failures

This video shows a rabbit heart that has been kept beating outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution. The new cardiac device -- a thin, stretchable membrane imprinted with a spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes -- is custom-designed to fit over the heart and contract and expand with it as it beats

Unlike existing pacemakers and implantable defibrillators that are one-size-fits-all, the new device is a thin, elastic membrane designed to stretch over the heart like a custom-made glove

Next generation of Heart Pacemake can prevent Heart Attack and other Heart Failures

The new cardiac device -- a thin, stretchable membrane imprinted with a spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes -- is custom-designed to fit over the heart and contract and expand with it as it beats

Unlike existing pacemakers and implantable defibrillators that are one-size-fits-all, the new device is a thin, elastic membrane designed to stretch over the heart like a custom-made glove

University of Illinois materials scientist John Rogers co-led the team that invented the new device.

He says they used high-resolution imaging, computer modeling, and a 3-D printer to create a plastic model of a heart. Then, they used that as a mold to make a thin, elastic membrane designed to fit snugly over the real heart’s surface

Rogers compares the silicon version to the heart’s natural membrane, the #pericardium  

“But this artificial pericardium is instrumented with high quality, man-made devices that can sense and interact with the heart in different ways that are relevant to clinical cardiology,” Rogers said.
Washington University biomedical engineer Igor Efimov helped design and test the new device.

He says the membrane’s spider-web-like network of specialized electrodes can continuously monitor the heart’s electrical activity and keep it beating at a healthy rate.

“_When it senses such a catastrophic event as a heart attack or arrhythmia, it can also apply a high definition therapy,” Efimov said. “So it can *apply stimuli, electrical stimuli, from different locations on the device in an optimal fashion to stop this arrhythmia and prevent sudden cardiac death.”

Efimov calls the new device a huge advance and hopes it will be approved for use in patients in 10 to 15 years.

Every genome is a miracle of packaging. Somehow a human cell crams two meters of DNA into its tiny nucleus, and yet this tangled mess can carry out the complex task of building and maintaining our bodies. Now, the most detailed look yet at this genomic jumble reveals loops of DNA that bring distant parts of chromosomes together, allowing them to act in concert. The work could help researchers pin down the genetic causes of diseases and help clarify how the genome functions.

“It sheds a light in a dark room,” says Wouter de Laat, a molecular biologist at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, the Netherlands. “It puts things into perspective.”

Every disease has a history. Some of that history is written in books, and some is written in our DNA.

The earliest records of meningitis — an infection of the membranes that line the brain — reach back to 1685. The British physician Thomas Willis described fevered patients, some of whom suffered from “continual raving” and others who suffered from “horrible stiff extensions in the whole body.”

But meningitis was a threat long before Willis put quill to paper. In a new study, published Thursday in the journal Science, two University of Utah scientists have uncovered a 40-million-year struggle between our ancestors and the bacteria that cause meningitis: As our ancestors evolved new defenses, our enemies evolve counter-defenses. By understanding the history of this struggle, we may be able to fight meningitis more effectively in the future.

Tiny dancer.

This sculpture is small enough to fit through the eye of a needle and was made by Jonty Hurwitz, an artist based in London. It is the “smallest creation of the human form in history”, he says. Hurwitz uses a technique called multiphoton lithography, in which a precisely focused beam of light induces polymerization in a light-sensitive chemical.

Enormous technological changes in medicine and healthcare are heading our way.  These trends have a variety of stakeholders: patients, medical professionals, researchers, medical students, and consumers.  They are important because of the impact they will likely have on all of us at one time or another.  

To get an overview of the trends in healthcare technology, we turned to Dr. Bertalan Meskó, medical futurist and author of The Guide to the Future of Medicine: Technology and the Human Touch.  In it, he identifies several areas that he believes will shape the future of medicine and healthcare for decades to come.

Molecular Biology 101: DNA Replication

As I mentioned previously, I want to write a 'back to basics' series of posts on some fundamental molecular biology processes. 

I start this series with explaining how DNA replication works. Before a cell divides, it must replicate its DNA by producing an identical copy of DNA through the process of DNA replication. This is one of the most fundamental biological processes, occurring in all living organisms. A series of reactions regulated by various enzymes makes sure that the DNA molecule is unwound from its double helix configuration so that one strand can act as a template for the synthesis of a new strand of DNA. 

Just as, in film photography, the negative of a photograph is the same image with its colours reversed, so too in DNA. In its sequence of nucleotide letters, each DNA strand is a “photo-negative”mirro... Mer »

This is one of the most fundamental biological processes, occurring in all living organisms. A series of reactions regulated by various enzymes makes sure that the DNA molecule is unwound from its double helix configuration so that one strand can act as a template for the synthesis of a new strand of DNA. 

Just as, in film photography, the negative of a photograph is the same image with its colours reversed, so too in DNA. In its sequence of nucleotide letters, each DNA strand is a “photo-negative” mirror of the other. The “A” on one strand always pairs with a “T” on the other, while “G” always pairs with “C”; a sequence like “GATTACA” on one strand is mirrored as “CTAATGT” on the other, each letter binding to its partner, zipping the strands together into a single 2-metre-long molecule. This pairing, a pairing that arises straightforwardly from the laws of Chemistry, is the key to the DNA molecule’s marvelous ability to copy itself. For each strand when unzipped from its partner grows back its missing complement, automatically creating two identical DNA molecules where once was but one

Read the full article, complete with  handy video links to help visualise some of these processes here:  http://www.jargonwall.com/molecular-biology/dna-replication/

And yes...the accompanying artwork is something I've always wanted to do with watercolour, because a DNA double helix is so inherently beautiful!

When it comes to getting out of a tricky situation, we humans have an evolutionary edge over other primates. Take, as a dramatic example, the Apollo 13 voyage in which engineers, against all odds, improvised a chemical filter on a lunar module to prevent carbon dioxide buildup from killing the crew.

Their findings, reported in the Dec. 3 issue of the journal Neuron, suggest that subtle shifts in the frontal and parietal lobes of the brain are linked to superior cognition. Among other things, the frontoparietal network plays a key role in analysis, memory retrieval, abstract thinking and problem-solving, and has the fluidity to adapt according to the task at hand.___

How the promise of immunotherapy is transforming oncology.

Cancer immunotherapy comes in several forms. The drugs sparking the most interest are called checkpoint inhibitors. They work by releasing the natural brakes on the immune system, enabling its foot soldiers, called T cells, to attack tumors.

What would Stuart Little make of it? Mice have been created whose brains are half human. As a result, the animals are smarter than their siblings.

The idea is not to mimic fiction, but to advance our understanding of human brain diseases by studying them in whole mouse brains rather than in dishes.

The altered mice still have mouse neurons – the "thinking" cells that make up around half of all their brain cells. But practically all the glial cells in their brains, the ones that support the neurons, are human.

World’s first artificial enzymes created using synthetic biology.

Enzymes made from artificial molecules which do not occur anywhere in nature have been shown to trigger chemical reactions in the lab, challenging existing views about the conditions that are needed to enable life to happen. Our assumptions about what is required for biological processes – the ‘secret of life’ – may need some further revision.

This is an inspirational freeform short film with striking visuals and  background narration by Carl Sagan.

-----
Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

Red is a powerful color. It's the color of Cupid and the Devil, the color of love and hate. It brings to mind hot-blooded anger and Scarlet Letter shame. It means luck in China, where bridal wear is red, mourning in parts of Africa and sex in Amsterdam's red-light district.

Some of the hue's significance has a biological basis. Many humans get red in the face from increased blood flow when they are angry. A similar process activates a flush of embarrassment or a more flirtatious blush. Seeing red also triggers some surprising behaviors. For instance, drivers blocked in traffic by a red car react faster and more aggressively than drivers barred by vehicles of other colors.

According to bullfighting lore, the color choice is said to help hide bloodstains, but it may have other advantages. Whereas humans are trichromats—meaning that we have three types of retinal cones sensitive to long (red), medium (green) and short (blue) wavelengths—cattle are dichromats: they possess only two kinds of cones.___

A Step towards Spine Regeneration 
Regenerating neurons still remains to be a challenge in regenerative medicine. Scientist have used embryonic stem cells to regenerate 3D neural tube from mice embryonic stem cells. Using a system defined by Late Dr.Yosihiki Sasai, scientist were able to develop correct spatial organization of motor neurons,interneurons and dorsal neuron in neural tube. This can potentially be first step towards regenerating human spine and helping hundred of thousand people suffering from paralysis.

Cancer cells are hungry. To feed their rapid growth and division, their metabolism changes. Moreover, they use sugar (glucose) in a different way to normal cells. This animation, created by Nature Reviews Drug Discovery, explores the key aspects of the altered metabolism in cancer cells and explains how these can be exploited for the development of new anticancer strategies.

The virus has landed

This is a virus called a T4 bacteriophage.  It has landed on a bacterium.   Now it's getting ready to lower its tail, puncture the bacterium's cell wall, and inject its DNA.

When this happens:

1.  It immediately stops the bacterium's own genes from being expressed.

2.  In 5 minutes, its DNA starts synthesizing enzymes needed to make new copies of the virus.

3.  In 10 minutes, its DNA starts replicating.

4.  In 12 minutes, new copies of the virus start being formed.

5.  In 30 minutes, the bacterium bursts, releasing 100 to 150 new copies of the virus!

Professor Carla Shatz of Stanford University and her colleagues have discovered a way to revert an adult brain to the “plastic”, child-like state that is more able to form new connections quickly.  The technical term “plastic” implies the ability to adapt or shape itself to new conditions.  The striking results were revealed through experiments on a protein expressed in brain cells known as PirB (this is the name of the protein in the animal model, in humans it is called “LilrB2″), which seems to stabilize neural connections.

Stability protects against loss of learned skills or information, but at the same time hampers the acquisition of new ones.  The scientists found that interfering with the normal function of the neuron-stability molecule PirB had the remarkable effect of reverting at least one part of the brain to a more malleable state that could easily recover from damage,rewire itself ...

Behind the hellish Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa lies an agent that fittingly embodies the mad contradictions of a nightmare. It is alive yet dead, simple yet complex, mindless yet prophetic, seemingly able to anticipate our every move.

For scientists who study the evolution and behavior of viruses, the Ebola pathogen is performing true to its vast, ancient and staggeringly diverse kind. By all evidence, researchers say, viruses have been parasitizing living cells since the first cells arose on earth nearly four billion years ago.

Some researchers go so far as to suggest that viruses predate their hosts. That they essentially invented cells as a reliable and renewable resource they could then exploit for the sake of making new viral particles.

Why curious people are better at learning.


A recent study has shown that curiosity leads to chemical changes in the brain that help us to learn and retain information more efficiently.


We are bombarded with so much information every day, why does some of it stick while the rest is forgotten? Researchers at the University of California, Davis have found insight into why curiosity plays such a crucial role in learning. As it turns out, our minds actually reward us for seeking out the information we are most interested in.


The study was conducted with 19 volunteers who were asked to review 100 trivia questions. The volunteers were told to rate each question based on how curious they were about knowing the answer. Next, they looked at an answer to each question while their brain activity was monitored by an MRI machine.

The research team watched the pleasure centers of the participants’ brains. They saw that these centers lit up when they encountered the answers to questions they were most curious about. "When the participants' curiosity was piqued, the parts of their brains that regulate pleasure and reward lit up,” says Maanvi Singh from NPR. "Curious minds also showed increased activity in the hippocampus, which is involved in the creation of memories.”


The results of this study were published in the journal Neuron.
