TEM of T2 Bacteriophage viruses attacking bacterial cells of Escherichia coli.

In the three color-enhanced Transmission Electron Micrograph images, it can be seen virus particles, each with a head and a tail "sitting" on bacterial cells of E.coli. In which genetic material is injected into the bacterium.
As known, bacteriophages can be said to be the parasites of bacterial cells. The virus normally attaches itself to the cell's wall and, using its tail as a syringe, injects its own DNA into the bacterium. The virus DNA then takes over the bacterial cell, forcing it to produce more viruses(orange) as seen in the first image inside the bacterial cell(green).

Houdini's Secrets Revealed By His Mechanic #amazing

R.D. Adams ‒ the mechanic who made Harry Houdini’s trick magic apparatus ‒ wrote three articles about the master magician's secrets in 1929-30, some years after the Houdini's death, on the "Modern Mechanics and Inventions" magazine.

You can read the hi-res magazine scans and transcripts here:

"The HTC One (M8) is the best Android phone the world has ever seen. Period. Full stop. Of this, there is no doubt. In many ways, in fact, it is the best smartphone the world has ever seen."

The "rules of the road" for the Bill Nye The Science Guy show.

I never thought about it, but one of the reasons the show was so accessible and inviting was Bill treated the kids and guests as peers.  Learning isn't just a handing-down of knowledge -- it's a conversation.
