Hi. What's up? Have you given them the good organic fertilizer like you do your mangos?
By the way have you ever tested the pH of your soil or water? Do you use well or city water to irrigate your trees and plants?
I found out recently that my well water has a pH close to 8.0 My mango and citrus trees have a tendency to have yellow leaves and not do so well not to long after getting established. I learned that the alkaline pH inhibits their ability to utilize the iron, minerals, nutrients and fertilizer that's in the soil. So I have started to take steps to lower the pH of the water and soil with great results. Maybe pH is affecting your banana tree. They prefer a soil pH range of 5.5 to 6.5 according to my research online.

+Luis Olivo Honestly, the bananas haven't gotten much TLC from me.  I just basically threw them in the ground.  I have read up a lot about soil and pH testing and all that, but have not been too concerned with it except for my citrus trees.  I modify the planting soil enough for the other trees where, I'm pretty sure between the nutrients and the earthworms, they will be happy.  Citrus are finicky about pH, soil aeration, and feeding.  They are my high-maintenance babies.  Tried to do all the right stuff for them, but in the end it was the Citrus Greening that set them on the slow path to death.  Vile little beast that Citrus Greening.  Oh, well, at least I got to taste one season of nice fat lemons and some real juicy tangerines from my Ponkan.

Great article about a quantum chip simulator. Cool picture of a quantum chip too.
 
Here's a neat app that let's you program a quantum chip. The app is just a simulator, but if you want, you can request to use the real thing.

It simulates writing qubits in a quantum computer. If you cycle through the settings you can select the most basic model and get a general idea of how it works. Then if you compare those results with the classical version of computing you see where quantum computing differs. Basically, you start by selecting which ports you want photons to go through. In the most basic example it's the 1 or 0 port. Then, the simulator shows the probability (P) of the photon arriving at the end ports 1 or 0. The neat part is looking at how the probabilities differ from classical computing due to the photons being entangled. For instance, if you send a photon from both ports 1 and 0 in the basic model, they become entangled and will either arrive at ports 1 or 0 but not both. In the classic computing however, there is no entanglement so there is a 0.25 probability of getting two 0's, a 0.5 probability of getting a 1 and a 0, and a 0.25 probability of getting two 1's.

Here's the link to the original article.

Very cool. I wonder how the new Galaxy S4 would perform.
