I'm sure +Andy Bohm would fix this if he could. Heck I'd throw in a box of Bagel Bites.

Go home winter, you are wasted
15 April 2014. I paid my taxes, Oldman Winter, now leave me alone. I hope my bulbs survive the next couple of days. It was 28°F this morning. It's supposed to be 50°F on Thursday.

HOA where +Annika O'Brien talks about robots
If you like robots, check out this HOA.
Join us for a STEM Women HOA as we speak to +Annika O'Brien on her career as a roboticist. Annika is an engineer who works on robotics and also a passionate STEM educator, teaching kids how to program and build robots through +STEAMtrax. She will talk to us about her exciting career path as a woman in STEM, what inspires her, and why supporting women in STEM is important. 

This HOA will be hosted by Dr +Buddhini Samarasinghe and Dr +Zuleyka Zevallos  and you can tune in on Sunday April 13th at 4.30 PM Central/ 10.30PM UK. The hangout will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel ( after the event.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by STEM Women on G+. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Happy Songkran 2014
I'm so busy that I totally forgot Songkran starts tomorrow. Excuse me for just re-sharing last year's post.

Happy Songkran 2013 or สงกรานต์ 2556
April 13 is Thai New Year. The New Year is 2556, based on the Buddhist Era which starts from the death of Buddha in 545 BC. The pictures are from a visit to Thailand in 2005.

Alzheimer’s Disease Research
h/t +Letha McGarity for triggering this lazy #ScienceSunday  post about Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Many of you may have heard of amyloid plaques and how patients with AD have brains riddled with amyloid plaques. In fact, Auguste Deter pictured below, was the first AD patient and her brain was riddled with what we now know are amyloid plaques.

However, I'm going to do a lazy post and direct you to a series of videos here:
Full disclosure, I collaborate with Dr. Klein. However, he really is a great scientist and a great guy. In the videos he'll explain how the hippocampus plays a role and how oligomers are the real story.

Schlieren Flow Visualization, let the science flow
Many thanks to +Koen De Paus for sharing this. I learned something new today. I had not heard of Schlieren flow visualization before.

Casting Light on Sound to See its Shadow

"When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. You've probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You're seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

In the mid-19th century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density. The setup is a bit hard to explain in words (watch the video above for a full explanation) but it allows scientists and engineers to see things that are normally invisible: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze.

It can also be used to see sound. Sound, after all, is just another change in air density — a traveling compression wave. A speaker pushes on the surrounding air, creating a wave that travels outward until it encounters the ear drum."

I'm the medical imaging, Red Wings, Formula One, Tech guy.
I'm a scientist/engineer interested in image based biomarkers, i.e., non-invasively visualizing disease or response to therapy. I mainly research cancer using MRI, PET/SPECT/CT, and EPRI but I'm also interested in cardiovascular research.

Sports: Big formula one fan, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Bears, and Chicago White Sox.

Music: I like pretty much everything except country. Big fan of Pink Floyd. Bob Marley is a god-like-hero. I love house music when I'm programming or doing image analysis. Miles Davis is a mutical genius (say it in Gumby's voice).

Misc: love dogs, science/technology (gadgets), cars, bicycling... Also Member of The Incorrigibles.

My passion is science and science is my career choice, so I am grateful to be a co-curator for #ScienceSunday.

Don't circle me if you are not open minded and interested in science. I'm very much against the anti-intellectualism/anti-science movement.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
     Isaac Asimov, column in Newsweek (21 January 1980)

I like the selection of food and the self-serve grooming is a life saver. My dog makes a mess if we try to wash her at home.
