0] Sin() = measure of how perpendicular two forces are
1] i = rotation by 90 degrees. i^2= rotation by 180 degrees
2] log(effect) = cause
3] Transpose of a matrix = rotation by 180 degrees
4] Diagonal of a matrix = axle of rotation.
5] Curl = ability of a field to make you spin or revolve.

NGC 2403 in Camelopardalis

Image Credit & Copyright: Martin Pugh

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150327.html

Magnificent island universe NGC 2403 stands within the boundaries of the long-necked constellation Camelopardalis. Some 10 million light-years distant and about 50,000 light-years across, the spiral galaxy also seems to have more than its fair share of giant star forming HII regions, marked by the telltale reddish glow of atomic hydrogen gas. The giant HII regions are energized by clusters of hot, massive stars that explode as bright supernovae at the end of their short and furious lives. A member of the M81 group of galaxies, NGC 2403 closely resembles another galaxy with an abundance of star forming regions that lies within our own local galaxy group, M33 the Triangulum Galaxy. Spiky in appearance, bright stars in this colorful galaxy portrait of NGC 2403 lie in the foreground, within our own Milky Way.

The World Health Organization (WHO) just declared that glyphosate, found in Monsanto's "Roundup" brand of herbicide, is possibly linked to carcinogenesis in humans. The journal Nature examined this potential link, and the attached articles provides some insights into the evidence, judgement, and the controversy.

Robb Fraley, chief technology officer at Monsanto says this announcement is a result of "cherry picking" of data and is "outraged with this assessment" in a recent statement. Monsanto is a primary supplier of the world's glyphosate. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) report in The Lancet Oncology has obviously created reaction and rebuttal from Monsanto, as they have a highly vested interest in supporting Roundup and glyphosate as safe for humans and wildlife. The evidence is limited supporting a link to cancer in humans, but the IARC says there is a higher incidence in non-Hodgkin lymphoma in those working with the herbicide#, but other evidence does not support this. The IARC cites animal studies supporting this claim, which is why glyphosate is now classified as "probably carcinogenic" in humans. 

So, it seems the WHO has its reasons for announcing such an association, but it is also reasonable for Monsanto to refute the claims, both as a corporation and based on the non-conclusive evidence in humans. Still, this potential link is unsettling and it is guaranteed further studies will follow this to clarify any direct association between glyphosate and human cancer.

As the World Health Organization's research arm declares glyphosate a probable carcinogen, Nature looks at the evidence.

Following up on the lecture posted on the Anatomy of the Human Eye, I am sharing a video from Khan Academy on Auditory Structures, or Anatomy of the Ear Part 1. This short lecture introduces us to the basic auditory structures of the outer, middle and inner ear, and how these structures help propagate sound for interpretation by the brain.

Banning the "P" value in science...hmmm. Well, be fully truthful, one journal, the journal Basic and Applied Social Psychology, has banned the reporting of the "P" value in submitted articles. As a scientist, it is true the "P" value, as it is stated in the linked article, is the probability the null hypothesis (there is no effect) is wrong or that the effect or result observed is at least as large as if it was observed by chance. I am sure this description may lose something in translation in my attempt to simplify it, so please correct me if I described it incorrectly.

If we cannot assume the "P" value calculated in science to compare effects or results between groups gives us some insight into the significance of the outcomes, I am afraid I do not find any explanation in articles on how best to replace using "P" values for something more representative of the examined outcome? Sure there are lots of statistics and scores out there, but being trained like most others that "P" is where it all starts in your analyses, leaves me feeling I need additional statistical training that doesn't focus on "P" as much, and broadens the spectrum a bit on what is the most useful statistical scores or analyses are best to report in differing experimental designs and tests. I am open minded, and am always willing to look at things differently or in a new way. If "P" goes by the wayside in other sciences other than social and psychological sciences, I will miss my old friend but welcome new ones who can tell me how better off I am that I dumped that old "P" value. Change is the only constant, as I've been told all too often in my life!

Coming from a background in teaching Anatomy & Physiology among other topics, I thought it would be nice to share some educational videos concerning the anatomy and function of the human body. I like the approach and style of Khan Academy videos, so I thought I would start with their short lecture on the anatomy and structure on the human eye. I think it is well done, and hope you find it informational.
