Molecular motors are a pretty awesome feature in cellular transportIon. The right substrates get to the correct place, without interfering in the millions of biochemical reactions. It's an amazingly complex orchestra of interactions.

It's nice to see them animation instead of just in the textbook. Also nice to see people being fascinated by molecular biology again!
 
Motor Protein
I'm totally flabbergast!
"Motor proteins are a class of molecular motors that are able to move along the surface of a suitable substrate. They are powered by the hydrolysis of ATP and convert chemical energy into mechanical work"

It's big, it's expensive and it divides opinions everywhere! It's back! Even those of us with a rudimentary understanding of physics can't help being excited. Until you read the comments on threads anyway. The conspiracy theorists are also back 😒

For those days when you want a lazy hairstyle, but need to pull off being an international spy and McGyver rolled into one.

I'm very proud of my President Hifikepunye Pohamba for winning the Mo Ibrahim award for African leadership. Sometimes we have to stop and appreciate the standard of living and social stability we enjoy in Namibia. We cannot be complacent however, the disparity between poor and rich, the housing crisis, literacy and health care are a reminder of our inadequacies. Not to mention that in essence this prize is there to encourage African leaders to serve their allotted terms and step down. Are we giving incentive for people not to become tyrannical dictators? To think that none of our fellow countries claimed the prize in recent years...sad. 
Outgoing Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba wins the world's most valuable individual award, the Mo Ibrahim prize for African leadership.

Hahaha controlled by your GPS! Outstanding!
 
Your GPS could soon electrically stimulate your legs to move in a certain direction…because that is how lazy humanity has apparently become.

Seriously, what could go wrong?
Next generation navigation services could tell you where to walk via electrodes on your thighs.

I can be one to put in earphones and shut the world out. This one should get me through the new week.

Have to hand it to WEC, they are pretty progressive. I'm glad they have gotten rid of Grid Girls.
 
World Endurance Championship has dropped the concept of grid girls from the upcoming season

What are your thoughts on this move?

+John Amutenya I love that idea. The appeal for Motorsport to women has to go beyond just standing around being a grid girl or a girlfriend.

Happy 25th Birthday to Namibia. My beloved home and the smile of Africa!
 
Fellow Namibian in the Diaspora and friends of Namibia, witness this historic event live online (and please be thoughtful and SHARE):

http://www.nbc.na/news/live-streaming/
The NBC was established in line with the Namibian Broadcasting Act, Act 9 of 1991. In terms of this act the NBC is a juristic person. Its main source of funding is an annual state subsidy. Other sources of income are the sale of air time and programs, the issuing of yearly television licenses and the renting out of transmitters.

Thank you +Tim Johnson A very good article indeed.

Many people may read the start and abandon it as "another male bashing read", without following through to crux of this view point.

It has been a slow movement from women having their place, (a forced role) to then considering women can coexist in the male world (as long as they act more like men). We have been stuck in this phase for sometime now. We adopted it as our own (if a woman takes charge like a man she is a b***). We haven't yet gotten to a place where we let women just be themselves. Our success is still measured by how close we approximate male behaviours.
 
“Why can’t these girls be more like the boys?”

I have a feeling that a lot of the people who I would be interested in discussing the ideas in this article with would be averse to reading it because of the title, but the topic is something I've not been able to articulate well.  I can think of some critiques of the article, but it's worth a read.
