Sneaky Octopus

Whereas most octopuses pounce on their prey using all eight tentacles, new research shows that the larger Pacific striped octopus (LPSO)  uses a single tentacle to tap its prey, scaring it right into its grasp.

And then there's the LPSO's odd mating behavior. Most other octopuses stay at arm's length while mating, because females tend to get aggressive--sometimes to the point that make a meal of the male.

But LPSOs cozy up a little more, grasping each other sucker-to-sucker with their beaks touching as if kissing. And these kissing cephalopods even move in together in rock nooks and crannies, which others rarely do.

After mating, the females lay their eggs and keep right on going. Females of other octopus species tend to die after a single brood.

Liquid oxygen Is Magnetic

❉ Liquid oxygen sticks between the poles of a strong magnet until it boils away into its gas state. This is because it has unpaired electrons, which make each oxygen molecule a tiny magnet with a dipole.

❋ Normally, when oxygen is in a flask or in the air, these microscopic magnets point in all directions, cancelling out and meaning that there’s no net magnetic field.

❊ When it pours over the permanent magnet, the magnetic molecules all slightly align, creating an induced magnetic field, which reacts with the permanent magnet, making the oxygen stick to the poles. This is called paramagnetism.

+Aida Hazlan In deed an empty threat, although I do had a lot of french spam :)

But I only have to filter one e-mail and all of the rest are gone with it. I just click "Delete All."

:'D

Marvelous shot ! Makes me wonder how the other side looks like.
 
NEW: Pluto’s largest moon Charon has a surprising youthful and varied terrain, with cliffs, troughs and a dark marking nicknamed 'Mordor' in the moon's north polar region. This image was taken by our New Horizons spacecraft during Tuesday's #PlutoFlyby. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1CEz9jD

+Bill McGarvey Charon was probably still bitchy abt Pluto getting the attention cause it was considered a planet 130 yrs before Pluto was discovered.

+Arturo Gutierrez​ saddest gif ive seen this week :(

Artifical Chemotaxis

Something that explains the attraction found in drops of food colouring.

“ The critical fact was that food colouring is a two-component fluid. In such fluids, two different chemical compounds coexist while retaining separate molecular identities.

The droplets in this experiment consisted of two molecular compounds found naturally in food colouring: water and propylene glycol. The researchers discovered how the dynamic interactions of these two molecular components enabled inanimate droplets to mimic some of the behaviours of living cells.

This complex behavior is something called artificial chemotaxis which Manu Prakash explains in layman’s terms in the video below: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMsaH6SY4CY

The physical properties of these fluids give rise to this immense complexity of behavior. For example, chasing and sensing each other, and very much what we call artificial chemotaxis.

Chemotaxis is the idea in biology that one single cell can sense where its enemy is, and it brings up all its machinery, and it chases that enemy to try to eat it.”

Kuching Marathon 2015

We did the usual 10 km run this time. Hopefully we'll do half marathon next year as I think my timing/stamina has improved from previous run.

Walking Octopus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaE-LwDowcU

An octopus has been captured on film exhibiting one of the most remarkable (and amusing) examples of tool usage in the animal kingdom. GIF on the right shows the eight-limbed animal literally walking along the ocean floor carrying two halves of a broken coconut shell beneath his arms, seemingly without rhyme or reason.

+Jesse Powell awesome portmanteau!

+Bill McGarvey​ , +Arturo Gutierrez

These tentacless are made for walking
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these tentacles
Are gonna walk all over you 🎶

Explosive Echinopsis Cacti

Echinopsis cacti have some of the most brilliant flowers of any cactus, with vibrantly colored petals and explosive blooms that look almost like bursting fireworks. The trick is actually seeing it. The cacti bloom only late at night, and even then only for a few hours. The peak moment of beauty may only last an hour.
