The quest for the capacity to regulate the our bodies and minds of our fellow people has been lower than means for millennia, from the sleep-inducing honeycombs that felled Pompey's military to the Voodoo potions of Haiti. Now, Frank Swain, the strength in the back of technology Punk, has joined the search, digging up real zombie research:

• puppy heads introduced again to lifestyles with no their bodies
• mystery brokers dosing ambitions with zombie drugs
• parasites that push their hosts to suicide or intercourse changes
• the elixir of existence hidden in an eighteenth-century painting

This mind-bending and exciting excavation of exceptional technology is not like whatever you've learn prior to.

WHO comes to a decision WHICH proof ARE actual?
In 1998 Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist with a heritage of self-promotion, released a paper with a surprising allegation: the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine may reason autism. The media seized carry of the tale and, within the procedure, helped to release some of the most devastating well-being scares ever. within the years yet to come Wakefield will be published as a profiteer in league with class-action legal professionals, and he might finally lose his clinical license. in the meantime one examine after one other did not locate any hyperlink among early life vaccines and autism.
Yet the parable that vaccines someway reason developmental problems lives on. regardless of the shortcoming of corroborating facts, it's been popularized through media personalities resembling Oprah Winfrey and Jenny McCarthy and legitimized through newshounds who declare that they're simply being reasonable to “both sides” of a subject approximately which there's little debate. in the meantime hundreds of thousands of bucks were diverted from capability breakthroughs in autism learn, households have spent their discount rates on useless “miracle cures,” and declining vaccination charges have ended in outbreaks of lethal health problems like Hib, measles, and whooping cough. such a lot tragic of all is the expanding variety of little ones death from vaccine-preventable illnesses.
In The Panic Virus Seth Mnookin attracts on interviews with mom and dad, public-health advocates, scientists, and anti-vaccine activists to take on a basic query: How can we make a decision what in point of fact? The interesting solution is helping clarify every thing from the patience of conspiracy theories approximately 11th of September to the attraction of talk-show hosts who call for that President Obama “prove” he used to be born in the USA.
The Panic Virus is a riveting and occasionally heart-breaking scientific detective tale that explores the boundaries of rational suggestion. it's the final cautionary story for our time.

The main conclusions from these studies are listed below. ( a ) Even in the saturated phospholipid, some molecular motion oc- D. 38 Chapman curs in the solid state at room temperature. This is evident from the nuclear magnetic resonance ( N M R ) spectra, and from the IR spectra taken at room temperature and at the boiling point of liquid nitrogen. ( b ) When the phospholipid is heated to higher temperature, it reaches a transition point, a marked endothermic change occurs, and the aliphatic chains "melt" and exhibit a very high degree of molecular motion.

The experimental line width and second moments shown have been discussed in terms of rotational motions of the lipid chain groups. Wide-line PMR studies of phosphatidylcholine-water systems demonstrate the changes in molecular reorientation caused by increasing hydration (Veksli et al, 1969). With dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine the various lines which occur in the gel and liquid crystalline phases have been assigned. This system will be a useful model system for studies of membrane systems such as Mycoplasma laidlawii that undergo a phase transition.

This area per surfactant molecule at the highest surface pressure approximates the area of closest packing which the molecules of the surfactant can achieve. It was this area, when determined for different chain length hydrocarbons, that indicated that the molecules were oriented nearly vertical to the surface. Thus, for long-chain alcohols or 2 fatty acids, the area of 20 Â per molecule was obtained independent of the length of the hydrocarbon chain. The explanation was that all the molecules were oriented perpendicular to the surface.
