A subset of our social insects on display at +Arizona State University​'s Night of the Open Door. Live honeybees, honeypot ants, rock ants, seed harvesters, and leaf cutters! Come and check it out this evening. :)

Fantastic idea for a city with so much rain and runoff water -- gravity-fed water turbines to generate electricity in underground pipes!

[ #Portland #Oregon #renewable #electricity #power #generation #news #technology #technews #distributed #DG #sustaibability ]
Lucid Energy has developed a renewable energy system that makes use of water moving through pipelines. The company's LucidPipe Power System converts pressure in water pipelines into electricity. They have a patented, lift-based turbine technology and last month they made news in a project involving ...

They forgot the part that this fiber was designed specifically for light in the visible spectrum.

I imagine it appeals to that set which cares "who you're wearing", or people that that to keep up a certain appearance and have plenty of money available to do so.

I don't think this is an investment piece - that would be more like a nice black pant which can pair with lots of things and doesn't really ever go out of style.  So rather than spending $80 10 times for something that doesn't last and looks marginally inferior, you spend $600 once.  I just don't see  how you'd use this in such a manner.

For me its all ridiculous, but it wouldn't exist if nobody were willing to pay it.

Yes, agreed, but I have received non-gifts in such similar situations., though, perhaps not to this degree.

Crazy Lamarckian result. Gene silencing in body cells can find its way into germ cells and cause silencing for as many as 25 new generations of the organism!

[ #dsRNA #RNAi #evolution #silencing #genesilencing #genetics #RNA #DNA #science #biology #nature #research #medicine #genetherapy #Lamarckian #Lamarck ]
For more than a century, scientists have understood the basics of inheritance: if good genes help parents survive and reproduce, the parents pass those genes along to their offspring. And yet, recent research has shown that reality is much more complex: genes can be switched off, or silenced, in response ...

Either the wave function is objective reality, or there is no objective reality at all! -- Researchers show that the strangeness described by the popularized Schroedinger's cat thought experiment is not just a reflection of fundamental limits on knowledge; it reality is a reflection of reality.

New #cooperation paper out of Oxford. By instrumenting ibis, they show that the birds are able to prevent freeloading in their flying V's by forming reciprocal pairs. There is direct reciprocity within each pair of birds, and that's enough to enforce a cooperative outcome at the level of the V.

Migrating birds 'share the pain' of the arduous task of leading a v-formation, so that they can then take turns saving energy by following in another bird's wake, a new study shows.

Wow. Fetching articles this way works have really sucked. With the ease of getting articles nowadays, it's no wonder that authors today take such great care to do good literature searches, right? (tongue firmly planted in cheek)

Introduction
Researcher (ECE/CSE/social-insect, CyberPhysical Systems, Freak-ology), husband, Android enthusiast, and bringer of the science.

See http://www.tedpavlic.com/facjobsearch/ for more information about my faculty/postdoc job search (CV, research statement, publications, etc.).

Research interests ("freak-ology"):
  • Agent-based modeling
  • Hybrid-state and hybrid-time systems
  • Complex systems
  • CyberPhysical Systems
  • Distributed algorithms
  • Amorphous computing
  • Autonomous systems and vehicles
  • Control and communications theory
  • Behavioral ecology
  • Cooperation
  • Optimization
  • Game theory
  • Parallel computation
  • Robotics
  • Informational architectures of emergence (of life, cancer, multicellularity, eusociality)
  • Bio-mimicry and bio-inspiration
  • Engineering education
You could group a lot of that into the broad area of intelligent control. However, I've tried to combine science and engineering and contribute to both.
