Российский физик в сотрудничестве с китайскими коллегами определил строение нового материала Ba3CaK(PO4)3, допированного европием и магнием. Это знание позволит получить дополнительный источник света 💡
Для пополнения структурных баз данных важно открытие и исследование материала нового типа. В этом исследователям помогает рентгеноструктурный анализ. Он позволяет установить соответствие между атомной структурой образца и пространственным распределением интенсивностей рентгеновского излучения. Одной из задач, например, является установление строения различных синтетических люминофоров, так как они демонстрируют высокий индекс цветопередачи. Изучение свечения, которое они испускают, поможет найти замену традиционным источникам искусственного освещения.
Vandaag geef ik een gastcollege aan verpleegkundigen die zich specialiseren tot spoedeisende hulp (SEH) verpleegkundigen! Deze verpleegkundigen zijn onontbeerlijk voor mijn eigen werk: zij zijn vaak de eersten die een patiënt zien, onderzoeken, een behandeling starten, en verdere hulp inschakelen. Zonder goede verpleegkundigen op de SEH is mijn werk onmogelijk. Bijdragen aan hun opleiding is daarom voor mij zowel een must als ook een feest. Want wat is nou leuker dan een groep enthousiaste nieuwe collega's de interessante dingen uit ons vak te mogen leren? Vandaag gaat het over drugs en vergiftigingen, spoedeisende neurologische aandoeningen en brandwonden. Ik heb er zin in!

(2/2) In larger surgeries such as total knee and hip replacements, it can be incredibly challenging even for the most experienced surgeons to position and orientate with total accuracy.
With this next generation robotic arm, surgeons can use 3D software to design a perfectly-fitting implant and plan its placement before even entering the operating room.
This will provide patients with the most personalised surgical experience possible, based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy.
It is because of the community that The Common Good is able to continue supporting research into areas such as joint disease, including arthritis, and fund new equipment to improve patient outcomes.
(1/2) A state-of-the-art robotic arm is helping orthopaedic surgeons at The Prince Charles Hospital deliver more accurate surgeries, with reduced pain and faster recovery for patients.
Thanks to $2 million in funding from the remarkable generosity of everyday people who donate to The Common Good, TPCH will be the first hospital in Queensland to offer this technology to public patients.
Partial knee replacement surgeries using this robotic technology can be two to three times more accurate than manual procedures.
The robot can selectively target only the part of the joint damaged by osteoarthritis, while helping to spare the surrounding healthy tissue giving patients better results and allowing some to go home as early as the same day as their surgery.

It’s been a hell of a ride but I finally closed on my next project: El rancho de Genevieve•
I bought a little self sustaining #ranch in Southern California. Over the next two months I will be working to make it into a vision I’ve been working on for the last two years, dedicated to my hard working, saint of a grandmother, Genevieve.
I’m so grateful to all the people that helped and will help make this into a place of giving back to the #earth and each other and learning how to #travel and experience places in a way that positively impacts the #environment and the #wildlife surrounding it.
Stay tuned for updates! And if you want to help us out at the ranch feel free to hit me up! You have a place to stay and plenty of food and beer :) •
As consumers become increasingly interested in where their food comes from, they are also asking questions about the conditions in which it's grown. 🤔
This includes the soil! And it just so happens to be National Soil week.
Creating one millimetre of soil coverage can take anything from a few years to an entire millennium.😱
Did you know (#dyk) the health of soil has a direct impact on our health too? The nutrients in our food are a direct reflection of the soil health and diversity. Our food can't produce these healthy nutrients unless it absorbs the compounds from the soil. 🥕
But with soils around the world under threat, we’re in danger of losing their health benefits faster than they are replaced. Looking after our soils ultimately means looking after ourselves. #itsmorethanjustdirt
Legumes are a Canadian 🍁 crop that are also great for soil health! They put nitrogen back into the soil which helps future crops like corn (which likes a lot of nitrogen). Legumes are also good for our health (more on that later). Supporting us, the economy, and the environment!
Ladies and Gentlemen....Brene Brown.
Do yourself a favor and watch her special on Netflix.
Yes I know you have Netflix...don’t we all have Netflix? Or have a friend who’s account we can “borrow?”
She will make you laugh, cry, and you’ll learn a shitload about how being courageous is linked to vulnerability.
You’ll learn how this effects your home life, relationship, and your work life.
You’ll learn why and how shame gets in👏🏻your👏🏻way👏🏻
Comment below and tell me what you think!
There are lots of benefits by practising a time restricted feeding protocol such as better blood sugar control and diabetic prevention, even if you eat exactly the same crap as you did before (you just eat it in a certain time frame eg. a 9 hour eating window) - BUT imagine the cumulative benefits you could expect by making a few healthier food choices as well???
In honor of Cancer Control Month (April), we are highlighting Jewel Plummer Cobb, Ph.D., cancer researcher, college professor, and supporter of women and minorities in scientific careers. She studied the effect of chemotherapeutic drugs on cell division and their use against skin cancers, lung cancers, and different types of leukemia.
Dr. Cobb wrote about racial and gender discrimination in the sciences, and was an advocate for recruiting and retaining minorities in her field of study.

Damaging the structure of DNA under UV light. A simple PCR-hood cleaning process feels way more badass move on the DNA day, where Watson et al. publised the structure of DNA on 25th of April, 1953.
Happy DNA day!

Another cell line for your viewing pleasure 😉
Today I am introducing you to my dear HCT116 cells 👩🏻🔬
✨ The HCT116 cell line comes from a human colorectal carcinoma 😨
✨ Carcinoma is a type of cancer that develops from epithelial cells : the cells that line the surfaces of, and the cavities in, our organs ♥
✨ Eg, a colorectal carcinoma develops from the cells lining the cavity in the colon (the part that food comes into contact with) 🍽️
✨ These cells are cancerous because of a mutation in the K-Ras gene 🤔
✨ K-Ras tempers cell proliferation. It's basically telling the cells to multiply just enough for the colon to work properly, but if the cells try to multiply too much, K-Ras becomes a party pooper and tells them to stop 🙅🏻♀️
✨ Without K-Ras, the party becomes a bit too crazy though 🎉🎉🎊🎊 and cells multiply too much : that's cancer 😔
I've previously showed you fibroblasts and bone cells (U2OS) and you can see these ones look different again! They're kinda star shaped imo 🌟
Do you work with the HCT116 cell line?
What if you were confined to a chair for the rest of your life?
Unfortunately this is the prognosis for many paraplegics and quadriplegics. But their brains were still working, still sending signals, but the signals just don't make that important trip down the spinal cord to the limbs. If only they all had access to the technology we have now:
In 2018, a paralysed man in the Netherlands had an electrical implant placed in his spine. The implant boosts signals from his brain to his spine, allowing him to take his first steps, after being told he'd never walk again.
I've linked the full story in my bio because this amazing research shows exactly how technology (especially tech making use of electrical signals) is enabling what was previously impossible!
P.s. also so proud that researchers at my uni are undertaking this same research in order to one day make this tech available to all who need it 👌👍 I can only dream of (and work hard towards) being able to program something like that one day... Do you know anyone who could make use of this tech? Seen any really awesome technological advances lately? Tell me in the comments 👇👇👇
Appropriate physical activity, diet and sleep are the main modifiable pillars of living long and well - but how much and how hard to exercise? Generally the more the better BUT would you include a bit more activity like walking/gardening/recreational movement into your day if you could delay brain problems /Alzheimer's by more than a year for every one hour per week (do the math - one hour general activity per day for a 7-8 year benefit??)
