Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR EXTENSION - Há 16 horas
No ultimo dia três, aniversário de uma de minhas irmãs - Maria Helena - fui a Santa Maria abraça-las. A viagem foi boa - 45 minutos num avião Azul, com retorno no dia seguinte. Transportou-me gentilmente do e para o aeroporto o Sr. Mauro. Passamos por uma ruas por onde eu nunca havia passado enquanto lá morava, onde vi de longe e externamente o estado lastimável das antigas oficinas da gloriosa VFRGS. O resto foi festa e festa e encontro com primos, muitas amigas de minhas irmãs e suas cuidadoras. Coloco a seguir *um pequeno filme* e algumas fotos.

Seeing quantum motionAugust 28, 2015 by Jessica Stoller-Conrad [image: Seeing quantum motion] Credit: Chan Lei and Keith Schwab/Caltech Consider the pendulum of a grandfather clock. If you forget to wind it, you will eventually find the pendulum at rest, unmoving. However, this simple observation is only valid at the level of classical physics—the laws and principles that appear to explain the physics of relatively large objects at human scale. However, quantum mechanics, the underlying physical rules that govern the fundamental behavior of matter and light at the atomic scale, state ... mais »

In the space of a few hours, three representatives came bearing information on the compounds formerly known as S-16257, REGN727, and LCZ696. They've been awarded the clumsy generic names of ivabradine, alirocumab, and sacubitril/valsartan, respectively. After spinning in the marketing bin, they tumbled out as *Corlanor* (Amgen),... mais »

Human Super-Predators

*REPORT: The unique ecology of human predators* *Abstract: *Paradigms of sustainable exploitation focus on population dynamics of prey and yields to humanity but ignore the behavior of humans as predators. We compared patterns of predation by contemporary hunters and fishers with those of other predators that compete over shared prey (terrestrial mammals and marine fishes). Our global survey (2125 estimates of annual finite exploitation rate) revealed that humans kill adult prey, the reproductive capital of populations, at much higher median rates than other predators (up to 14 time... mais »

It's hard to overestimate the impact of Oliver Sacks on the public's understanding of the brain, its disorders and our diversity as humans. Sacks's wrote what he called 'romantic science'.
