Hello interwebs! I'm raising money for an upcoming school trip to Costa Rica. I know I wouldn't care about donating unless there were some goodies attached so I'm offering lots of rewards! By helping me pay for this trip you're helping me graduate next year! Stay tuned, I'm hoping to get some crafty endeavors underway soon.

This week in Science, researchers show that myelin distribution is diversified, and signature myelin profiles appear in different neocortical layers. Myelin encapsulates the axons of neurons and is crucial to normal function in the mammalian nervous system. It allows electrical impulses to travel quickly and efficiently by reducing sodium leakage and utilizing saltatory conduction. Action potentials hop along Nodes of Ranvier, where myelin is missing from the axon and voltage-gated ion channels are present, in order to regenerate the action potential at the next node. The degradation of myelin sheath is a trademark of many neurodegenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis. Current research is focused on understanding the structure of myelin, and big projects focus on the regeneration of myelin (it does not regenerate, hence numerous myelin-based disorders).

+Jonathan Cruz in terms of this study they were mainly looking at the structure and distribution of myelin and making comparisons. Did you check out the article? Pretty pictures abound. That's mostly why I shared it ;P

"It took eight months of psychotherapy before Dominic stopped drinking for good. Although he remained in therapy for several years after that, the key that unlocked his addiction was nothing more complex or ethereal than an understanding of what his addiction really was and how it really worked."
AA and rehab culture have shockingly low success rates, and made it impossible to have real debate about addiction

The World Health Organization has released a report, detailing some alarming findings in regard to antibiotic resistance.

"The report makes a clear case that resistance to common bacteria has reached alarming levels in many parts of the world and that in some settings, few, if any, of the available treatments options remain effective for common infections."

This is a great read about disease transmission and safety in laboratories. Some may argue that some pathogens shouldn't be studied and modified because of the danger involved but I think it calls attention to the need for improved research on isolation and detection techniques.

If my schedule on Saturday weren't full with work and going to DJ Anjali's Tropicale I'd be taking part in this board game fun.

Here are the final pictures I took on the SEM and they highlight exactly what I was looking for! Note how much longer the cells grown at 60C are from the 45C and 50C. This bug changes its length at different growing conditions.  #science   #microscopy

This place was exactly what I was looking for while visiting Astoria. The service was great, the coffee was bold and freshly roasted and it was a pleasant spot to sit and sip!

Came here with a groupon and was really pleased with the food! The dolmas were a bit saltier than I would have liked, but it's something I would expect from this dish. The pita bread was really good, but I've had better from other places in town. The service was excellent and even on a busy Friday evening we got our plates promptly and in a nice order so that the table wasn't cluttered. If I'm ever looking for Lebanese in downtown again I'll probably stop in.

I joined Advantis because I wanted to bank locally and have more of a connection with my community. I don't have perfect credit, but they were able to open a checking account for me. Their updated online banking is really great and for being a local credit union Advantis is really convenient.
