Could it be real power to the people…and a 1000 years of energy for climate change & global warming mitigation?

Not all nuclear power is the same--Thorium reactors have been a viable nuclear power option for over 50 years and is superior when it comes to: cost, safety, fuel product diversity and waste—why not use it? Discover why it is considered by many to be green nuclear power.  Clean, Green Thorium can power change!

Innovation Concepts and Typology – An Evolutionary Discussion
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/cf_dev/AbsByAuth.cfm?per_id=1989392

This paper is devoted to the analysis of evolution of innovation concepts, aspect and types. First emergence and evolution of different aspects and concepts of innovation are analysed, then the development of innovation concepts from a historical perspective and finally an overview given of types of innovation classifications developed in the literature. Surrounding this different definitions of innovation are described and analyzed in detail. 

The main goal of the article is to define the trend of development of innovation conceptualization and understanding over time.

It hits first place ALL TIME HITS (for all papers in SSRN eLibrary) in several SSRN eJournals!

The full version can be downloaded for free here

                      the universe originated of water
This theory of the origin of the universe, based on the expansion of gases resulting from the ionization of the primordial water that existed at the beginning of the universe, best explains 100% of the matter.

Would you like to meet a Tardigrade?

In the Canopy with Water Bears and Wheelchairs We’ve already met tardigrades (or water bears) virtually. If you are an undergraduate with an ambulatory disability, you also have an opportunity to meet tardigrades in the tops of trees. At ScienceOnline…

Jan. 30: Solar Eclipse Only Visible From Outer Space

There will be a very special New Moon on January 30. This New Moon includes a special Solar Eclipse ("Lunar Transit of the Sun") which can only be seen from Outer Space, the second time this month that there is a New Moon phase which closely coincides with lunar perigee, and with this New Moon the Chinese Calendar welcomes the Year of the Horse !

Next-generation sequencing for Infections

Hello #ScioX : On  my blog #Sciberomics , I discuss how a recent study demonstrates the use of next-generation sequencing to identify the infectious organism in a case of encephalitis.

A 14-year old patient with severe and clinically worsening encephalitis (brain inflammation) had to be put into a medically-induced coma to control his epilepsy. Meantime, doctors rushed to find the exact cause of his condition. However, routine tests and even brain biopsy was unable to detect the cause. Finally, doctors analyzed his cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that surrounds the brain) by next-generation sequencing, for evidence of DNA from different microorganisms.

They found DNA sequences of a bacterium – leptospira. Based on this, they treated this teenager with high-dose penicillin (the treatment of choice for leptospirosis) and were able to save the life of this youngster.

Will this success help next-generation sequencing become a routine test for rare infections? Read more about this on my blog.

A new study used next-generation sequencing to diagnose a rare infection. Can this success help drive this technology into routine clinical use?

Excited to launch my new website/blog: Sciberomics – Snapshots of Science and Life. My first post went live last week.

I will blog regularly discussing recent developments in #biology  and #medicine , specifically focusing on how they affect human life.

Welcome to my new blog!

#scicomm   #outreach   #sciox   #sciosd  
The aim of Sciberomics is science outreach. This blog will discuss recent developments in biology and medicine, focusing on their effects on human life.

Air Products equipped their new facility with Peak Laboratories TCD's for their Doe Canyon project.
With end-users of helium facing critical supply shortages Air Products new project targets the extraction of helium from a naturally occurring underground carbon dioxide gas source. This project will use a new technology process cycle to produce pure helium from the CO2 stream. If you would like to know more about this process please read the article below.

Dear ScienceOnline community, we're looking for scientists interested in explaining their work to our non-specialist audience. Whether you're an established science blogger or you've never written before, our editorial team will help you craft an article we're both happy with before it goes live on our site. We may even turn it into a podcast, or animate it. If you're interested or have any questions, please do get in touch! We look forward to hearing from you :)

Opportunity for individuals with ambulatory #disabilities  to #research   #tardigrades  ( #waterbears )  in forest canopies presented at +ScienceOnline by +Meg Lowman & Rebecca Tripp. #science   #accessibility   #ecology   

"This canopy-based REU project offers students of all abilities equal opportunity to explore and learn. Students can discover new species, new ecologies and new limits and reach new heights.

Designed for eight students, four with ambulatory disabilities and four without, this project is based on the idea that a wheelchair is not a limit to good field biology. To explore the canopy we climb ropes not trees, and in the lab we use microscopes, computers and minds, which have no limits."

Now Hawking is suggesting a resolution to the paradox: Black holes do not possess event horizons after all, so they do not destroy information.

"The absence of event horizons means that there are no black holes, in the sense of regimes from which light can't escape,"...he said
