The Day in Science - 18th February

1. Why does the brain remember dreams?
Some people recall a dream every morning, whereas others rarely recall one. In a new study, research shows that the temporo-parietal junction, an information-processing hub in the brain, is more active in high dream recallers. Increased activity in this brain region might facilitate attention orienting toward external stimuli and promote intrasleep wakefulness, thereby facilitating the encoding of dreams in memory.

2. New GM potatoes can resist blight
British scientists have developed genetically modified potatoes that are resistant to the vegetable's biggest threat - blight.

3. Study on flu evolution may change textbooks, history books
A new study reconstructing the evolutionary tree of flu viruses challenges conventional wisdom and solves some of the mysteries surrounding flu outbreaks of historical significance.

4. Military's 'Iron Man' Suit May Be Ready to Test This Summer
The first prototypes of a high-tech suit of armor that could give soldiers superhuman abilities could be ready to test this summer, according to top military officials.

5. Designing Collective Behavior in a Termite-Inspired Robot Construction Team
Robots programmed with simple construction rules can work independently but collectively to build a complex structure.

6. Tropical fish at risk in hot water
The rapid pace of climate change is threatening fish living near the equator, a study has found.

7. Russian satellite Kosmos-1220 to crash to Earth today with ‘very real danger’ to populated areas
A Russian satellite is expected to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere today, reportedly representing a "very real danger" to densely populated areas.

8. Being lazy could be genetic, scientists say
A mutation in a gene with a critical role in the brain could explain why some people are "couch potatoes" according to researchers.

Super Cool Science Contributors Circle

I'm creating a new science circle in about 24 hrs. If you like science, then in order to be in the science circle, you must:
Create a public post on YOUR profile about something sciency
Hashtag it with #ILoveScience and LINK to the post here in the comments (simply right click the date of the post and select copy link).

I will take the first 100 people who do it.. compile you up into a SCIENCE circle and share it out. This should give you a few additional science followers. It would then be super awesome if you were in the circle, if you share it out.. because it will truly be a SCIENCE circle... but thats not required. Hopefully this will encourage you to also post about science.. so your new found circles will like interacting with you... 

h/t +Amanda Blain for inspiring this unique kind of circle sharing.

The Day in Science: 4th April
Daily compilations of the latest scientific research!

1. Chemists' work with small peptide chains may revolutionize study of enzymes and diseases
Chemists in The College of Arts and Sciences have, for the first time, created enzyme-like activity   using peptides that are only seven amino acids long.

2. Bacteria Could Grow Futuristic 'Self-Healing' Materials
Living materials produced by bacteria could lead to interactive structures programmed to self-  assemble into specific patterns, such as those used on solar cells and diagnostic sensors, and even    self-healing materials that could sense damage and repair it.

3. Wanna Build a Rocket? NASA is About to Give Away a Mountain of Its Code
Next Thursday, NASA will release a master list of software projects it's cooked up over the years. This is more than just stuff than runs on a personal computer. Think robots and cryogenic systems and climate simulators. There's even code for running rocket guidance systems.

4. Underground Ocean Makes This Saturn Moon a Top Bet for Extraterrestrial Life
Scientists have determined that a hidden ocean of liquid water likely lies beneath the frozen crust of Saturnís moon Enceladus. Because the tiny moon freely sends samples of this water into space via spectacular geysers, the finding could rocket Enceladus to the forefront of searches for life beyond our planet.

5. This patch can tell if you'll get sick soon
The future of health monitoring is a tiny electronic patch that sticks to the skin and records your every move.

6. Flipping the switch on scleroderma
Scleroderma is a rare and often fatal disease, causing the thickening of tissue, that currently lacks a cure and any effective treatments. A group of researchers is looking to change that. The group has identified the core signaling pathway that activates the disease and the chemical compounds that can turn it off.

7. Vegetarians are less healthy and have a lower quality of life than meat-eaters, scientists say
Vegetarians are less healthy than meat-eaters, a controversial study has concluded, despite drinking   less, smoking less and being more physically active than their carnivorous counterparts.

8. The Way You're Born Can Mess With the Microbes You Need to Survive
In our first three years of life, a great diversity of microbes self-organizes into a life-support   system. This critical period lays the foundation for all the biological processes that unfold in our   childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old ageóunless something comes along to disrupt it. Today it   is in peril.

Wow, you sure dodged that question. This disqualifies you from science but qualifies you to be a good pagan, as they also begin their "life" with water. Do some more research. No. Do much more research.

Now this is such a brilliant and creative idea. The candle holder collects the wax and thus a new candle is born automatically when the current one burns through.

Uuuhm? Oxygen? I hope you can remove the glass tube...
A good part of the wax will get burnt (you can see the ratio in the third picture).
Furthermore, I think it can block itself up...

Just buy dripless candles...

Add up this amazing geek circle from +Amanda Blain . Gonna do one of these for my science circles too, if that's ok.
 
*IAmGeek Circle Of Amazing - Add These Geeks to Your Stream*

Wow! A targeted active and engaged circle of Geeks here on G+. Each and every single one of these fine people shared a post about Whatever it is they are geeky about with the hashtag #IAmGeek . I read and commented on posts about space, zombies, video games, people growing up as geeks, sci fi books,  Mobile phones, neuroscience, Dr Who, Anime, and lots more.  (check out the links to the posts here -https://plus.google.com/u/0/107982618909749811163/posts/hb5jfJS3Gmo)

The #IAmGeek  Hashtag trended for most of yesterday. Several people include one post from someone brand new to G+ (less than 100 followers) hit the what's hot list(https://plus.google.com/u/0/107348276687585876026/posts/EuAeicWFVaW), and there were TONS of interactions from the people in this circle, commenting on others posts who used the hashtag.... Awesome!

A great experiment and success if you ask me. Proof Circle shares still matter if you spend some time on it. So if you want some more geek in your stream.. why not add this circle up?  If your in the circle, why not share it to reach more geek fans( and why not share another #IAmGeek  post today or later this week :) ) 

And if i managed to miss you some how.. my apologizes.. There was a lot of stuff happening at once and errors are made. I promise I don't hate you :)
