First ever photograph of light as a particle and a wave.

Light behaves both as a particle and as a wave. Since the days of Einstein, scientists have been trying to directly observe both of these aspects of light at the same time. Now, scientists have succeeded in capturing the first-ever snapshot of this dual behaviour.

Indian food is something of an anomaly, but not for the reasons you might think.

The notion of fresh and foul air has a long history. For centuries in China and India doctors speculated that contaminated air brought disease, while in Rome, the idea was so widespread that Vitruvius discussed the issue in his treatise on architecture. Fevers in Italy were ‘malaria’ (bad air) and even in the 19th century one of the proponents of the great Victorian sanitary works, Edwin Chadwick, wrote ‘all smell is disease’.

Chemists build a molecular banister.
Chemists at the University of Basel in Switzerland have succeeded in twisting a molecule by combining molecular strands of differing lengths. The longer strand winds around a central axis like a staircase banister, creating a helical structure that exhibits special physical properties. The results were ...

Photonic Crystals : The Secret to Colour-changing Chameleon

"We discovered that the animal changes its colors via the active tuning of a lattice of nanocrystals," the study's co-authors, physicist Dr. Jérémie Teyssier and biologist Dr. Suzanne Saenko, said in a written statement.

"When the chameleon is calm, the latter are organized into a dense network and reflect the blue wavelengths. In contrast, when excited, it loosens its lattice of nanocrystals, which allows the reflection of other colors, such as yellows or reds."

Now that we know how chameleons change colour, let's sing !

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon, 
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams:
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green.

What’s Up With That: Your Best Thinking Seems to Happen in the Shower

You’re in the shower. The water sounds like a gentle, rainy static, and feels like a Plinko massage. You’ve just started to lather up and suddenly, you’re hit with a flash of brilliance. Maybe it’s the answer to a vexing problem at work, the location of your lost USB drive, or perhaps it’s just a random, inconsequential (yet totally satisfying) insight.

Just an observation of how society solves problems! NOT my solution. Took closet doors off long ago, escorted the elephant to outside, set monkey free, burned bonnet, filled bag with cat litter, just need to break handle!
